This Is How You End A Surf Edit

Bronson Meydi’s three-minute clip with a devastating knockout punch.

In skate videos, it’s common for the skater — after they land something they’re happy with — to flippantly do another trick on flat ground as a sort of performative flourish to cap off their achievement.

In fact, most sports or activities have some sort of swag-adjacent, stylish postscript that seals the brilliance that came before it: Bat flips after home runs, gorilla flexes after knock-outs, knee slides after goals, and claims after great waves. Skaters just seem to be, uhh… cooler about it?

In this edit, Stab High alumnus and Indonesia citizen Bronson Meydi chooses the way of surfing’s concrete progeny. He caps off his last alley-oop with something very special — and he does it casually, like a skater nonchalantly backside-flipping after surviving a rail trick they’d been battling with.

Preset to relevant point. Just click play. Video: Limosine

But Bronson also shows us in this edit that his lanky frame has more to give then just tricks. There are plenty of rail lacerations and tubes — fitting for a man who was born in the thumping heart of the surf universe.

Take a gander and add to Bronson’s last wave to your list of “Best Enders of 2024” if you agree. It wouldn’t be unrealistic to expect Bronson to meet his Indonesian countryman, Rio Waida, on the CT soon.

Semoga beruntung, Bronson.
