Did you hear it… that incessant dice roll?

What about the barbaric jungle sounds? The full-blooded hoots and hollers?

Of course you did, you seedy Instagram trawlers. And that means you know exactly what we’re going to say next: a new Rip Curl Search episode, starring Mick Fanning and Mason Ho, is coming soon.

Like two days soon.

But, you’ll only be able to watch it for 48 hours, so you better be quick!

Even beyond the limited release, you could say “Red Monkey Full Moon” isn’t a typical Search episode, in the sense that we’ve seen most (if not all) of the waves Mick and Mason surfed in this clip before. However, having had a sneak-peek at the 18-minute film, I can say without a hint of commercial bias that this hearty slab of cinema will both knot your tummy and inflate your eyeballs—it’s just that good. (See the mini-gallery above for evidence.)

With a live premiere (feat. Mick Fanning) at Huntington Surf and Sport in Huntington Beach, California, “Red Monkey Full Moon” will be available to view simultaneously around the world online at 8.30pm on Saturday, July 27 (PST). The episode will also be released on

But remember, “Red Monkey Full Moon” will only be available for 48 hours from the moment it goes live. 

Stay glued to your screens, little monkeys!

Or, if you’re in the Huntington area, the world premiere of “Red Monkey Full Moon,” with Mick Fanning in attendance, is free and open to the public. Head down to Huntington Surf and Sport around 7pm, first in best dressed.
