Video: ‘Lost in Thought’ is a Full Length Independent Surf Film

Hunter Martinez is an up-and-coming filmmaker from California. If you haven’t heard of him, you may want to start keeping tabs, because the 24 year old just dropped his debut full-length surf film, Lost in Thought. The film stands out for a number of reasons, the biggest being that it’s an independent film, entirely financed by Martinez and the surfers involved. Upon releasing the film, Martinez stated “I wanted to make this video of all my friends, at home/on trips having a good time and surfing the globe no sponsors involved, to show that we like to surf and I like to film because we truly just love it.” With a crew of America’s most talented underground surfers and full creative control, Lost in Thought captures the heart of surfing. This one is well worth 36 minutes of your time.

Occasionally, a few lucky rivers in the world experience a scenario in which a large wave of water barrels upstream against the natural current. This rare phenomenon is known as a tidal bore, and sometimes these waves can get moving up to 25 miles per hour. As you've probably guessed, they’re fun to catch a ride on. Most people surf them, but it turns out hydrofoiling does the trick too. In fact, it might be a better vehicle of choice for maximizing the wave. Just watch as hydrofoiler

The Wedge is scary on a small day. And on a big day? Absolutely terrifying. However, that doesn't seem to deter the dozens of boogie boarders and surfers who risk life and limb there on a regular basis. Perhaps the convenience of an in-town wave at Newport Beach is enough to overpower their instincts of self-preservation, or maybe they like the crowds which gather to watch people get mauled.

Cigarette butts seem to be everywhere. With an estimated 4.5 TRILLION cigarettes littered every year, it’s no surprise we come across them so frequently. This isn’t good news for aquatic life as the chemicals found in cigarette butts are toxic to fish and microorganisms. Cigarette butts also contain cellulose acetate, a form of plastic. That means they never fully decompose. Yikes. RELATED: 12-Year-Old Sierra Kerr is a Surfing Powerhouse So why do so many people toss them on the ground
