Mason Ho Is Never Not Having The Most Fun
They say a double negative equals a positive.
In the age of the vlog, it seems that every self-promoting surfer is seeking out weirder and more unnecessarily dangerous waves—mainly, novelty joints that break perilously close to rocks.
Reason being, these waves provide eye-grabbing thumbnails and titles, which make them good for a click. Clicks equal cash, so the cycle continues.
Despite this trend, Mason Ho can never be accused of selling out. The 30-year-old Hawaiian has been surfing weird and hazardous waves since well before Youtube's renaissance, and he seems to genuinely enjoy dodging boulders and reef, rather than just doing it for his fans.
He also does it on a real surfboard (not a damned foamie), trying real tricks, which makes the viewing that much more enjoyable.
Check out Mason's most recent rock dance plus a more "traditional" session (at one of Stab's most cherished Hawaiian folds) in the clip above.
