The Inertia

Labor Day weekend of 2015 turned the Wedge into something special. The water was warm, the sun was bright, the wind was offshore, and the waves… well the waves were on a different level. The footage above is from September 6th and 7th of 2015, and it is a reminder of just how great the Wedge can get.

    Well… I guess you never saw Bill Bryan, Sam Stinnet or Paulo Prietto wrecking The Wedge on a skimboard…

  • Albee Doh

    Too many jump cuts. And I have an inexplicable desire to carve out the congestion in my nasal cavity with a shovel. Or maybe a jackhammer? Dynamite, even?

  • Seabass120

    Editing is terrible! Half the fun of the Wedge is watching guys get blasted into oblivion….this is just a video of mostly drops.

  • Bonkers Freckles

    worst edit ever typical body board shit,style less

    • Edward James Almost

      Bash the bodyboarders because your scared to take of on big waves, yup seen it before guys like you. You probably carry surfboards on your car and they never come off.

      • Bonkers Freckles

        Yeah your quiet the psychic bro,you obviously traded ease for ethic and so you are stuck bottom feeding,everytime you get in the surf you have marked yourself as a talentless wonder,a living breathing example of what taking second best in life looks like.Fuck off with your comment and your psuedo attempt at a sport.

        • Edward James Almost

          Fuck you poser wannabe.

  • Justin Scull

    ya everyone is right the edit on this totally blows. its like oh man here it comes! oh ok never mind over and over again. did you record this on a camera that could only record 2 seconds at a time? obviously not a surfer or someone with experience with surfing doing the edit.

  • Joe G Hernandez

    Worst video I have seen! All drops no tubes! Won’t recommend!

  • NA

    Thanks
    for your input everyone! I’m Andy, the film/editor. I had roughly 2 hours of total footage from
    both mornings that I tried my best to condense into something short
    enough that people would be likely to watch all the way through.
    Additionally, this was done purely as a hobby for my own personal
    learning/experience. It took weeks, countless hours, and money from my
    pocket to finish. Sharing it with others is just a bonus! Thanks for
    viewing! I appreciate all comments (however critical they may be).

    • Worst Comment Ever!! This comment was all drops, and NO TUUUUUUUBES!!! WAH WAH WAH!!! ALL DROP NO TUBES!! IM GONNA CUT MY NOSE OUT AND CRY MYSELF TO SLEEP CAUSE i DIDNT EVEN TRY TO MAKE A VIDEO AT ALL!!!!

      P.S. Video looks great!

      The quality is solid but it plays more like a teaser than a full video.

      Too many jump cuts is nauseating. It’s great to see the whole ride more often than not.

      I’d also recommend a greater variety of different perspectives. It’s a fine early effort but too redundant. Just mix it up and you’re gold.

      Hey, you’re very talented Andrew, I loved your film and the editing. I’m an editor and I’m in the industry for the past 30 years, clearly I can distinguish what really stands out. Beautiful work.
      Keep filming 🙂

    Hey Andrew, just want to congratulate you on your video, I’ve seen nasty comments here, say this and that….I have one word for you…OUTSTANDING. You’re really an artists and you did captured on film amazing moments and translated very well with your editing. Your video is passionate, inspirational and very well executed, don’t bother with a few stupid comments here! Congrats man. Well done.

  • Roman

    Andy, thank you very much for sharing your art. There is no doubt in my mind you could show your movies around the world when you decide. In being subjective, I enjoyed the music themes. Im the first voice to espouse the power & pleasure of loud , fast, electric guitar instrumentation but never associated my musical preferences with ocean glory. Please come to Israel and have a coastal tour of your variety of movies? Disregard the below false PROFIT$ that portray themselves as film production critics. When you come to Israel I promise you will enjoy the homecoming you never knew existed. Toda raba/ Thank you!

  • bobswims

    Not a single bodysurf shot. Doesn’t anyone bodysurf the Wedge anymore?

  • Hemi

    DAMN! Sick Andy, simply sick! You have the touch bro! Looking forward to following you….

  • piizzi

    Awesome video, had the chance to make it out both those days but only shot stills myself, so cool seeing much of the same people i got photos of in a well composed video! Brings back a fun 2 days

  • Pappies

    is this video trying to rehabilitate A.D.D. suffers with the slow motion edits of incomplete waves?

  • gremmie69

    excellent video. is it easier to edit or surf the wedge ????

  • Robby Adams

    All that and not one bodysurfer?

  • pivotal50

    Anyone who self titles their video as “the greatest ever” automatically places it in the amateur category. Not for the author to decide that. But… if you keep on filming and editing Andy, one day someone else more qualified will say your video is great and I guarantee it will be much more satisfying. ps… be more selective, use ONLY the best shots and only cut on the frame before it stops being interesting.

    • LJS

      That’s not his title puto.

  • Rick

    Good job, Andy! Simply awesome! BTW, the music is awesome, too! Who is it?

  • Dylan Harris

    Amongst all this, how many people got injured?

  • Gene Bishop

    Very nice job on the video, and the music was cool. This comes from a non video guy that does not surf. The only complaint,,,,the ending shot of the balloon seems non connected. I would have ended with a good ride.

  • Brian C Mulligan

    great
