Film: Perry Gershkow
Four Highly Enjoyable Minutes With The World's Number Two Surfer
Kolohe Andino has cabin fever.
Did you, like us, disproportionately adore Kolohe Andino's most recent film foray – the appropriately titled "HOME-ish"?
Featuring a playful Napoleon Dynamite reference and 10 minutes of pumping California surf, Kolohe put forth the best performance of his career, linking turns, tubes, and weightless rotations with the passion of a tween but the power of a Canadian lumberer.
You could say it was a warning shot to Kolohe's fellow CT surfers, all but one of which he defeated at the year's opening event.
Central Cal filmmaker Perry Gershkow, who was filming alongside Jacob Vanderwork for the making of "HOME-ish", has released some unseen footage from the Santa Cruz section of the clip. Featuring water angles and unseen waves, this edit was surprisingly entertaining given its "B-sides" nature. We'll credit that to Perry's masterful editing skills.
Bells is starting soon, and some of the sections on this wave look eerily similar to The Bowl. Will Kolohe maintain his current form and smash through the final series? Or will he stub his toe on the stairs and earn a dirty turd?
