Is It Time To Book Your Indo Trip Already?

Noah Collins’ new clip brings warm whispers of far flung trade winds

Is “twinzer” a bad word?

If you still think there oughta be 44 surfers on tour and are partial to your 6’3 Dahlberg, then it just might be.

But don’t fret, there’s plenty of backhand smashes and turned-over rails in this video — it’s just mixed in with a few obligatory shoulder checks and straight legged bottom turns.

Computer Blue is a film conceptualized and mostly created by 26-year-old Noah Collins. Aside from Carlo Coral’s help on the lens, Noah shot the b-roll, dragged the distortion slider around, and fiddled with Adobe Premiere until he was well satisfied.

The result?

Well, it has me nostalgic for morning trade winds in the Indian Ocean — so, a success?

In the clip, Noah is riding a triage of Panda twinzers, not dissimilar to the one Noa Deane tested for an older Electric Acid Surfboard Test

He also happens to be surfing in the same (windy) location we filmed the most recent Vans Stab High, but he clearly took a more “go left and do turns” approach.

All hail the goofs.
