Episode 10: Thursday Meh
We headed out yesterday for an early EPF session in the hopes to catch the end of the NW swell that is dissipating. Early on in the dawn patrol there were a few decent rides, but it was clear the swell was on the outs. By the time the sun was over the horizon the waves were starting to mush out and all the surfers had to work extra hard just to stay on the waves – lots of pumping and low-center-of-gravity squatting. There were a few extra skilled dudes out there that seemed to be making something out of nothing. As always, super special thanks to sneakmove.com for sweet soundtrack action.
This might be my favorite video so far. The rides are all so peaceful and serene and the soundtrack hypnotic; I was mesmerized to the point that I forgot I was at the Apple store looking at this new iMac. Time to go buy a new wetsuit.
And maybe a new iMac!
Love this video too, I agree, its got lots of harmony to it and these are just average everyday waves. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks to both of you for you positive comments. When I was editing it, I was thinking this video would turn off many viewers. I was hesitant to publish anything at all. But then I thought, “That’s surfing. Some days are good and some are meh. No reason to hide that. Nobody has to watch it.” And then I was hesitant to put the music in there because I didn’t want to “waste” such a sweet soundtrack on this video. But maybe the music makes the video. I was surprised and stoked to get 130 views in the first 24 hours.
Anyway, thanks! Here’s hoping for bigger waves this week…
