John Florence and Barron Mamiya Spinning At Island Speed
The North Shore moves at 120 frames per second.
When is slow motion in surf clips acceptable?
If John John Florence and Barron Mamiya are spinning above the lip cut to Sonic Youth’s cover of the Temptations’ "Super Star", is it acceptable?
If the music is slow, is it good enough?
If it keeps you transfixed on your device, does that gel?
Or, is there never a time, ever, that slowing down surfing is a presentable form on the internet?
Well, that’s up to interpretation.
Anyway, here's two waves from December of John at Backdoor and two waves of Barron at Logs shot by Sam Moody and slowed all the way down.
