Watch: The Electric Acid Surfboard Test, Starring Stephanie Gilmore

Thirty minutes of The Queen in Africa dancing with twelve of the loveliest left-field designs. 

Words by stab

Here she is, beauties: The Electric Acid Surfboard Test 2019, starring The Queen, 7x World Champ, and Stab’s Surfer of the Year—Miss Stephanie Louise Gilmore. 

With the generous support of our friends at Corona, this year’s full-length flick is gratis—so take the coin you ain’t spending on this gem, and toss it down on a cold sixer of Corona Ligera to share amongst friends while viewing. (We recommend this year’s film be washed down by no less than two cold ones over the thirty-three minutes.)

Shot in Mozambique, and filmed by Stab‘s dangerous arsenal of lensman Dylan Roberts, Tom Jennings, and Sam Moody, with Alan Van Gysen capturing all the still-life beauty along the way.
