Style Evolution

This video gives me goosebumps.

I don't really want to fill this blog up with stuff from youtube, but I couldn't resist sharing this one. More than just your usual compilation of gnarly wipeouts, this video is beautifully put together from surf films through from 1963 to 2005, starting with early big-wave riding on heavy longboards, and ending with modern tuberiding at spots like Shipsterns. I love that the music avoids the usual heavy electric guitars; and even though it shows some really evil wipeouts doesn't it just make you glad to be a surfer?


  1. Really enjoyed that - one of the best 'slam' sections I've seen, somehow managing to be both heavy and light at the same time...

  2. Love the two groms at Malibu teaming up on the moustache! Classic!
