This Smooth Surf Edit Is Yoga For the Eyes

We watch a lot of footage here at TGR, and it’s safe to say that many of us suffer from what I like to call “stoke fatigue” from watching a few too many shredits a day. That’s why when something like filmmaker Drew Miller’s latest surf short comes along, we appreciate the little things that make it stand apart. Instead of 120 seconds of high-energy big wave riding, it’s a soulful homage to the sport that actually gets us inspired to go outside and experience it for ourselves. If anything, it’s just soothing to watch – a little yoga for the eyes. Hey, it even made Vimeo Staff Pick!

From Drew Miller:

"Assorted Rides" is comprised of a few sessions in California where I met up with a surfer I’ve really enjoyed watching over the years. Devon Howard’s approach to surfing inspired the feel of this short—a modern classic. In preparation for this project, I pored over old surf photography books with works by guys like LeRoy Grannis and Ron Stoner. They are photographers that captured moments and told stories through the use of dramatic backlighting and color accents compressed through a manual focus telephoto lens that—when complimented by the grain of film—produced a timeless image. My hope is the short film does two things: 1.) Makes you want to go surfing right now! 2.) To record a moment in time which represents what I think is Devon's best surfing to date, at age 46 no less.

I have watched the video of surfing. It was really a great feeling to watch the added surfing videos that cannot be explained through words. I am very much happy and excited to see such an interesting thing and it’s the only reason why I am here Vegan Meal Delivery Canada

Alaska’s Aleutian Islands don’t classify as your typical surf getaway. You can’t just hop on a plane and arrive at the beach. Most trips require a bush plane ride, then a boat ride, which is then followed by a hike.

“No Small Feat” Explores the World of Women’s Big Wave Surfing

“No Small Feat” Explores the World of Women’s Big Wave Surfing

Female surfers have fought for years to be included in big wave competitions, despite overarching patriarchal attitudes that insisted that they weren’t up to the challenge. Pioneer big wave surfer Paige Alms will even tell you about the time when an announcer at the Mavericks Big Wave Invitational said that "girls just aren’t good enough", even though she and her friends were already surfing the same waves as men.

Making The Most of Mexico During A Rare 2020 Surf Trip

Well, we’re by no means advocating traveling internationally during a pandemic – but if you do happen to find yourself in a place with an outrageous swell and nobody else around, what would you? Surf it of course. That’s exactly what Ian Crane, Nat Young, Michael Dumphy, Griffin Colapinto, Anthony Ruffo, and Brandon Guilmette did just a short while ago in Mexico, taking advantage of some perfect conditions to remember what it feels like to get stylish on waves.
