Not one trick ponies, but will they still be surfing at 40? Jesus, suicidal!

These guys make it look so easy. Absolutely raising the ceiling.
I reckon I might give these moves a crack,
...naa that would mean I am dreaming.

In a nutshell.

Again.

If they are eating the fish then it's about the most sustainable and ecologically responsible way of feeding yourself and your family/friends if you live on an island.

“Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
Have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
But it's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings”

- K Cobain

Anyone else utterly bewildered by what people are regularly doing on surfboards now ? Just that clip alone ...paddle in barrels in Humungous waves, stupidly elevated and tweaked helicopter airs on big sections.

I literally wouldn’t believe any of it was possible - and certainly not possibly done by the same individuals - till a couple of mates from a little island somewhere pump out a video like this .

Nice work , guys.

Watch those knees !

Killing fish for no reason ?

That’s got to be a piss take.

Gary reckons that Matt and Albee have the widest variety of airs of any surfers on the planet.

Even Gary, who spends a lot of time navel-gazing looking for small abdominal changes, struggles to see differences in most surfers' aerial repertoires. Watching Albee and Matt it's more like the variety you get in a skating clip

You and me, Gary, ain’t nothing but mammals so let’s do it* like they do it on the aerobics channel

Where do their airs sit alongside the likes of Garybriel, Toledo, Italo and J Wilson?

That's quite the fantasy collection of surfers you've listed there, Bnkref

In this particular menage-a-cinq Gary would clearly have Italo & Felipe on top because of their flamboyance & variety, with Julian & Garybriel fighting each other for the opportunity to bring it up the rear.

Gary would be watching

Chippa Wilson is easily as good if not better than those dudes, not to mention Dane R

If Gary was monogamous he’d choose Dane to the exclusion of all others.

Always been interested that these two don't have major sponsors. I'd love to know what the big surf co's don't see in them.
