The Inertia

One of the best things about surfing is the fact that there isn’t a right way to do it. There are a million different shapes of board, a million different sizes of waves, a million different styles, and a million little things that change other little things. One of the most difficult forms is the one that comes with no fins. When one thinks of a finless surfer, they usually think of Derek Hynd—but there are many others who partake in the slipperiest of surfing styles. Liam Gibney is one of them, and look at the fun he’s having!
