A couple of very cool things about this video. The first is that you get to see people at the highest level of surfing actually being human. You know, doing what we may do before going out to surf a head-high beach break: deciding on a board, tying on new leashes, getting antsy. It’s a nice bit of levity that so many surf videos ignore in place of sponsor logos and overly-stereotypical hard rock montages.
The second is the footage. It’s not all GoProed and first person POV. We get to see just how vertical a wave like Peahi gets when everything is firing, and it’s scary. But if you’re one of the skilled few … what a way to live.
Oh, the end credits are adorable.
