This video is what surfing is to me. For people who don’t surf, they see surfing as people riding waves. For surfers its different. When we say we are going for a surf all we are thinking about is waves. Big, Small, Onshore, Offshore, Fat or Heavy its all about waves. This video is a sort of Ode to the wave, the unsung hero of surfing.
The video starts off showing the two sides of the ocean, above and below. Then it shows some pure surfing. Drawing lines and doing big turns. The perspective is then swapped to a POV of a surfer to show that all they see while surfing is the wave in all its glory.
After the introduction the main feature starts showing empty waves breaking underwater from all different points of view.
It was all completely shot with GoPro’s.
