Black Excellence: An Honesty Hour Production 

A behind-the-scenes look at the founder of BLEX, Rahzizi Ishakarah, and his journey becoming a professional designer, model and entrepreneur. The film explores how navigating art, athletic and academic spaces as a gifted child helped shaped Ishakarah's identity, and led him to found his design company. 

With BLEX, Ishakarah seeks to expand positive representations of Black people existing in spaces that they are not often associated with, specifically in surf and skate cultures.
