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

Kirra on song above.

And a ruthless burn by Occ.

Dingo would be proud.

More so than an Ex-pro when a camera is around?

Great footage of KS at smoking Honolua Bay. Really get a sense of how the sections wedge, wrap, and bowl.

Footage is from 2016.

His read on Honolua is definitely preternatural!

That is a great perspective Westy. I like how the wave takes on all comers and wins at 1:12.

Probably my favourite North Shore wave to watch - and where I'd like to surf my 6'10 DS.

And does Malia M have good teeth or wha?!?

Fair assessment. Reckon the pitch that he's AI incarnate owes more to hair colour and the sticker on the nose of his board than anything else. AI was raw and had an uncanny ability to improvise, EE is smooth and polished.

I always based the comparison with AI on the searing down carve. AI might have need raw at times but in good , perfect waves he was also silky smooth with that particular drawn out carve out of the lip. He took a different line than other carvers such as Parko and Hoyo and Ewing looked like he’d made it his own.

That and the arm placement and bottom turn poise.

that made me think of that old doctored footage of shaun thompson (i think?) where they looped a bit of the footage to make it look longer...

This girls surfing is insane and only 13, absolutely charges, big barrels, and proper airs, and some of those turns are pretty good, full on tail blast.

Imagine what she could be in another few years when she goes pro (expect not yet at 13)

99% of commited surfers will never in their lives get one wave that comes close to the 50 he got in just one swell.
That’s so ridiculous
