This Highlight Reel Is Everything Good About Surfing

Right now is a tough time to be surf cinematographer, especially if you’re not based in a place like Hawaii or the Mentawais. With international travel out of the picture for the time being, surf photog Connor Trimble started digging through the hard drives to find some of his best shots from the last few years. Check out his sizzle reel from shooting big waves across the globe – capturing everything we love about being in the water.

From Trimble:

The story behind the Title: WATER in MOTION.... First off, I have a passion for capturing content in and around water. There's a beautiful, poetic way the light is reacting with the water and is constantly changing. You see this in my endless pursuit of finding just the right angle to capture a rainbow with the action. Second, my video editing style is to constantly have movement with each action or direction seamlessly leading into the next. To me, this keeps the viewer more engaged and is a challenge to do with the water, but I love this part of the puzzle in editing. Lastly, the ocean is never stagnant, it's always moving; hence water in motion.

The desert coast is inhospitable, home to dense fog, less than half an inch of annual rainfall, and over 1000 rusting shipwrecks. The local San people referred to it as "The Land That God Made in Anger," which is both quite poetic and a pretty solid indication that it's not a very nice place.

Have you ever been surfing at Pipeline in Hawaii, caught a perfect barrel, and realized that you're not going to make it out of the barrel before it crushes you? No? We haven't either, but it happens. So, in anticipation of a future surf trip during which we'll have developed the skills requisite to get barreled, there's no one we'd rather have prepare us for the perils of a closeout than Nate Florence.  RELATED: WSL Cancels 2020 Season, Makes Tour Format Changes Given how much Nate surfs,

It’s certainly been a weird time for surfing. The WSL's season was canceled. Who knows when we’ll be able to safely hop on a plane for that dream surf getaway. Not to mention all the beaches throughout the U.S. that have been closed altogether because of the pandemic. These days a little good news wouldn’t be so bad, which is why the Portuguese Surf Film Festival decided to offer their incredible line up of films for free through a virtual event. Sure, it doesn’t beat being on the beaches of
