Anyone else sick of wake style and strapless surfing vids?

Postby plummet » Thu Jul 18, 2013 8:45 pm

Hey bro's.

It seems that most vids uploaded these days are either wakestyle or strapless wave surfing.

Dammit I want to see good wholesome boosting. Maybe mixed with a bit of oldstyle and possibly some waves in there too.

With both wake and strapless surfing its all low level or no air time.

I want to see massive air, jumping over stuff, risk and a bit of silliness.

PS I did enjoy Epics 4g vid. Bring on more of that style of vid.

You got a point. There is a disconnect from reality here. Equipment is made for Hawaii or a perfect Laguna somewhere and the videos are made around that. Most people can't figure out what would work for them at the locations they go to. Watching those videos year after year is getting annoying. So you are not alone.

Now that is pretty rich coming from you!!!

Bag on vids if you like, but they are the motivated ones who are putting it out there. Don't like it, do better. Complaining is lame if you have nothing else to contribute.
