Don't think there's a forum thread for random surf clips to share...so here goes.

Pretty rank that it's clearly his parents/manager captioning his insta posts. Fucking amazing barrel but.

Not a video but a photo, and not out-a-sight but subtly impressive.

Ben Wilkinson at Haleiwa, with forward weight application after, I'm assuming, a solid stall. How else to get the board that high at that angle?

The surf ain’t amazing in this clip but it does look fun enough .

Worth consideration as documentation of just how well a 48 year old man can grovel in 2020. Also nice to see brief flashes of uncrowded Bali and an empty beach. Even though I fully empathise with locals who are struggling as a result there’s still a part of my heart gladdened to see the beach not overwhelmed by humans.

that seemed a bit more than a grovel to me: shapely long period beach break with offshore winds.

but yeah Kelly looking fast and loose.

so was Rizal.

Still not sure if this is inspirational or the ultimate schadenfreude .

Lot of paddle strokes for one bog ordinary wave.

Fine line between admiration and mockery.

You reckon you could go down right this minute and power paddle through 8 feet close outs for 50 minutes in a 5/4 steamer , booties and hood ?

There’d have to be a defibrillator on standby if I gave it a go I reckon.

Jeebus, Wade looks sharp. The power!

So many perfectly timed turns, and so many barrels.

Watched that last night on the big tele IB.

Razor sharp and full power. Love that kind of surfing.

Can thread a tube too just quietly.

Unreal vid udo.

As above so below.

And not an air in sight.

It was like watching a natural footed 'Occy' (with a bit more of an extended goatee)

Will never know for sure but I reckon JC would approve of the 'AJ'
