GQ’s wave expert Stan Parish spotted this video recently by professional surfer / filmmaker Taj Burrow, and he’s been watching it over and over. Now we are too. Stan explains his hypnosis:
Best surf footage I’ve seen in a while. There’s this passage in the famous New Yorker piece “Playing Doc’s Games” by William Finnegan where he talks about how you don’t really understand a wave as a three-dimensional thing until you see it from above. And check out the reef (and sharks) just underneath the surface. Can’t stop watching this.
