You’re now seated before Rick Rifici’s 2016 show reel, a collection of the finest moments the Western Australian lensman captured over the last 12 months. If you’re going to sign up to this game, then this side of the country’s an intelligent location to position yourself. From frightening ledges to neatly-lined sandbanks, they’re deadly spoilt for waves, not to mention the lineups are lonely (can be a bad thing). If you know what you’re doing, where to look and roll with the right entourage, then you’re guaranteed to witness some exceptional wave riding. 

You’ll notice Rick enjoys top shelf equipment, his Phantom Flex 4k and Red Dragon making for pristine vision, especially the ultra slow motion shots. Everything looks better at a ridiculous amount of frames per second – by ‘everything’ we mean everything Mick Fanning, Steph Gilmore, Jordy Smith, Matt Wilkinson, Ry Craike, Jack Robinson, Phil Read, Kelia Moniz and Kerby Brown do in the water. You really can learn a lot studying a professional at snail’s pace, just watch Mick delivering that attack at 2:14, a free lesson in controlled aggression right there.

Color Grade : Boogie Monster , Steve Vojkovic. 

Water Housing’s : Dave Kelly.
