Surf clips are a dime a dozen, and often posting them is done more out of courtesy than admiration.
Not on this occasion, however. After the initial, ‘Oh no, another Wes Anderson rip off’ intro, we burst into some of the most captivating surf footage I can remember. The surfing’s ludicrously good (I don’t think I need to repeat myself in highlighting just how good Chippa Wilson is, and there’s surely no flys on Brendan Gibbens either), just the right amount of slo-mo and grain, and Mercury Rev! Proper surfing, proper soundtrack. Bravo Wasted Talent.
