Watch: Von Froth // Giant Ireland

Reels

Always a lot of talking in these Von Froth clips and it's mostly filler, but not this time.

Between travel obstacles, anxious preparations, and hurried, last minute adjustments, the opening scenes add to the tenor of the clip, capturing the fleeting, here-now-not-tomorrow, urgency of big wave chasing.

Can pretty safely say I wouldn't be cheering my mate on in that situation.

He’s not, he’s waving for the ski. And some bog roll.

Yeah he's pretty hardcore.

He's so hardcore he closes his eyes when he's typing his PIN in the ATM machine to respect his own privacy.

He's so hardcore he's the type of guy who sits on the TV and watches the couch.

I think that was a evangelical hand to heaven. "Dear Lord, please let me survive this next thumping" or "for what I am about to receive, I give thanks!"

Would’ve been nice to see the start of some the waves especially the one that was paddled.
