Watch: Josh Kerr’s Twin Fin Opus, ‘Sway’

Reconfiguring Indonesian faces sans center skeg.

Josh Kerr has released a number of notable surf sections and films over the years. His most ambitious endeavor was the 2011 thriller Kerrazy Chronicles, where Josh and friends roamed all corners of the globe in pursuit of arid chambers and two-foot onshore ramps.

But times have changed. The music, fashion, and surfboards popular in 2011 couldn’t be more different to today. And Kerrzy is a clever little ferret, the type of guy who’s always buying low and selling high. Not one to get stuck in the trends of yesteryear, but rather establish the strandards of tomorrow.

Cut to 2020. Josh Kerr is off tour, but if anything he’s gained relevance in the modern surfing zeitgeist. Probably has something to do with the fact he only rides even numbers of fins. This guy sees the matrix and manages to quietly place himself at the center of it (like one of those Slater guitar-pick skegs).

That’s why, despite a whole pandemic going on around him, Josh figured out a way to spend several months in Indonesia last year, surfing top-drawer waves with no one out.

He then returned home with a hard drive full of footage and handed it off to his friend and Album Surfboards associate, Matt Kleiner. The result is 10 minutes of modern-day surf erotica: light on fin-flicks and techno, heavy on style and rail.

While it might not have the budget or air-time of Kerrazy Chronicles, for our money, ‘Sway’ will be Josh’s magnum opus.

…until he makes a better one in 2031.
