The Inertia

Here’s a hot tip. When a filmer who’s deeply ingratiated in the upper echelons of the surf world releases a reel they deem to be a smattering of their best shots, you might want to hit play. The above comes from Talon Clemow of One Palm Media and features all of your favs (e.g. John John, Kelly, Dane, Ando, Steph, and more).

At the risk of overselling, might we suggest if you’re short on time to skip ahead to about 1:17 where we see some incredible underwater shots of John John getting barreled and that we have to guess might be used in some future MIT study to understand the complexities of fin flex in surf. Or not.

Jon Pyzel is out there somewhere analyzing how John John engages that inside rail.

Only the best. We promise.
