The Inertia

Here’s a bite-sized one for your viewing pleasure: four waves with Joel Tudor at his home break, Cardiff Reef. Little more needs to be said about watching one of surfing’s smoothest operators in his element, but for context lets turn to filmer Tatsuo Takei who captured Joel on film:

“I believe Southern California is one of the best places to practice traditional longboarding,” says Takei. “Here’s Joel Tudor’s morning ritual, where the way he rode the wave reminded me of practicing Kata of Karate. Each move holds special meaning and is related to the one to follow.”


Only the best. We promise.
