Watch: The Hypnotic Movement Of Mikey February in ‘Sonic Souvenirs’

Get lost in episode one.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I can watch Mikey February surf for hours. Seriously, strap me down to a chair and pry my eyelids open; I won’t even entertain the idea of blinking. General consensus highlights Mikey’s style, but what about the technique-driven power? Let’s not forget that his precious carves stem from torque-heavy bottom turns.

Even on extended crafts (including his new CI Twin Pin, coming soon), Mikey February rounds the corner with a level of force that we tend to overlook. His composure is so alluring that we forget the amount of effort it takes to get a larger board into those envious crevices.

While an eight-hour film would be preferred, the first twenty-minute episode of Sonic Souvenirs will suffice. The film features local South African music and cultural influences that have shaped Mikey’s life, on top of exceptional surfing.

Tap into the roots of Mikey February and catch episode one here.
