This still has to be one of the best intros to a surf movie that I have ever seen.

And in other news, I saw the Lost Atlas premier the other night here in South Africa. It had really amazing footage (the most creative cinematography I have seen to date in a surf movie thanks to Kai Neville), but apart from a disguised pop shove-it and a few rodeo flips that was as progressive as it could go (maybe I missed the climax?). PS who’s the little blond chap? He rips!

Now excuse my ignorance and don’t make a mistake, Lost Atlas is thoroughly enjoyable and got a bunch of surfers who attended the premier applause at the end. I particularly liked the scenery of the different countries and surf spots (which was captured honestly and realistically) and Jordy’s ‘stinky breath’ scene.

Surfing is pretty much taking over skate and snowboarding moves. It’s the only natural progression I guess. Now, who out there do you think is the most progressive surfers and give us some video evidence of their moves, would love to see that…

It probably comes down to pulling off these extreme moves in competition, but I love me a free surf…
