Last minute change of plans made me postpone my Hawaiian trip and chase this swell all the way to Ireland. The swell window was small, it was 0ºC degrees, the ski was covered in ice, but the one day session made the trip worth it.
A big thank you to Joel Grey, Al Mackinnon, Barry Mottershead, Allan Mulrooney and my filmer Jose Pedro Gomes for making this trip happen.
Highline is a short movie filmed and edited by Ryan Perry and produced by youngwisetails (youngwisetails.com). It is based on our trip to South Africa with Tanner Gudauskas, Taylor Knox, and Parker and Conner Coffin. It was a bit of a search for waves to bring back the stoke in power surfing. It was an amazing trip and we hope that you enjoy the film! Thank you to Hurley, Volcom, Monster Energy, Fender, Reef, Etnies, Oakley, arnette, Mophie, Nixon, Channel Islands Surfboards, and Sexwax!
