Film: Red Bull/Taylor Curran
This Mini Mocumentary On Ian Crane's Red Bull Airborne Campaign Is Actually Pretty Damn Funny
Chris Cote hosts surfing's least serious athlete behind the scene series.
If you've been following along with Red Bull's 21 Days series, you'll know that it features Championship Tour surfers in their most open, vulnerable, and expressive states of being.
In episode one, we watched the unflappable tenacity of Kolohe and shed a tear with impossible-to-hate (when he's not surfing) Jadson Andre.
In ep 2, we watched a 17-year-old Caroline Marks navigate the strange space of being both a world-class athlete and high school student, plus Tatiana Weston-Webb grappling with a mid-career nationality change.
The third episode of 21 Days, however, is a little bit different.
Featuring San Clemente's beloved goofball and arguably California's most underrated surfer, Ian Crane, there are no serious, sit-down interviews. No heady remarks. There's not even much of a story, beyond the comedic give and take between star, Crane-o, and live-in commentator, Chris Coté.
With France called off for the day, there's no better time to sit back an enjoy seven self-deprecative minutes with one of the world's premiere aerialists. Go ahead and click the triangle—you will not regret!
