This Might Make You Want To Surf
Playful tune, relatable waves, just the right the right length.
The surf brain works in strange ways.
A single significant wave can remain in the front of our minds for an entire day (that Michel Bourez tube yesterday—yowza!). A brief sequence of clips (30 sec – 1:30) is forgotten almost immediately. A short edit (1:30 – 4 mins) is the sweet spot for both initial intrigue and mental retention. Anything longer better be fucking cinematic and spectacular.
This new piece by Haydenshapes, focused primarily on Jake Kelley but also featuring Mickey Clark and Dylan Graves, fits cozily into the short edit category. And for our money, it’s just the type of thing you’d benefit from watching before paddling out for a brief but productive surf at your local.
Punchy surfing, relatable waves, and with an upbeat tune. Our studies dictate that your session will be 7% better than average if you watch this within 30 minutes of paddling out (5% if it’s within the hour, 2% better if within 6 hours).
So hit play and get wet.
