Watch: Talon Clemow 2018 Showreel

Talon Clemow
Swellnet Dispatch

If you asked me : What are the two things you’re most passionate about? I’d say that, outside of my family, it’s the ocean and cinematography. Hands down.

In the back of my mind I always knew I’d shoot a trip with Kelly Slater. I just didn’t think it’d be his first ever surf trip with John Florence in a remote tropical line up and at times, there’d only be the three of us in the water, working. Because, that’s what it is right? Work…. yep, that’s what I tell people!

It’s been a while between drinks…. actually, 2014 since the last water cinematography reel emerged from the One Palm Media studio. 3 years or so, many trips with amazing people, interesting experiences and lots of amazing pixels captured that can’t all fit into one space. So we’ve been brutal and tried not to bore you with this ‘showreel’ edit. Here it is (below the frame grabs)…. a culmination of the two things I’m most passionate about, outside of the thing that I am most passionate about. And that’s what it’s all really about isn’t it? Enjoy!

If you didn't want to "bore" people you shouldn't of put the hole clip in slo mo...
More close up face shots then surfing in it...
rather 30 seconds of real pace clips then that commercial shit.

Geez you bastards are hard to please, I thought the shots of the waves and underwater were excellent.

Agree with amb, that was some of the most intriguing 'back-of-wave' camera work I've seen. Especially the sequence of Double John taking off and weaving.

I agree, an excellent perspective and invaluable for board development and performance.

That's confirmed my long held suspicion. Lift is NOT from concave but the rail edge!

I thought that was unreal, all surfing videos feel exactly the same but that was intriguing, the shots didn't seem conventional from what I'm used to. I concur back of wave shots were interesting to see, felt like I was studying.
