I lost both flippers (fins) on a heavy wipeout while shooting this. In water filming is less than easy. I don't recommend it unless you know what you are doing in big surf.
Not to mention you get tatt covered board riders screaming at you, and the loss of consciousness while being tumbled underwater.
Then once you're done with that, it is a battle with converting gopro footage and using twixtor to slow it down. I'm not sure which was hardest. Floating around with a camera on a bank named after the amount of sharks that frequented the area or using twixtor.
If you want a tutorial on how I did this just let me know and I'll tell you what I did. Starting with the paddle out.
Shot at The Alley Currumbin, Qld, Australia.
