"Red Sessions were a series of 3 surfing performance art/video projects by Alex Monteith held at Taranaki surf breaks in Aotearoa NZ in Jan/Feb 2009.

Surfers at Stent Rd point-break, Taranaki, were asked to wear a red rash vest for the duration of their free—surf. This clip is a compilation of surfers' rides at the point break where up to 25 surfers wore the red project rash-vests."
