Whose Striking Silhouette Landed Pentacoastal's Highest Air? - Stab Mag

Whose Striking Silhouette Landed Pentacoastal’s Highest Air?

Plus an easy trick to remember which Gudauskas is which.

Words by The intern.

If Pentacoastal isn’t your favorite surf film from this year, you should find a new optician. Wade Goodall and Shane Fletcher crafted one of the most taint-tingling surf flicks I’ve seen in a minute. The checker-booted boys have blessed us yet again with badass surfing, precise editing, and a killer soundtrack. While Wade’s hand-drawn animations throughout the film are intriguing, I found myself most mesmerized by his brushstroke at 12:19.

Luckily, our boy Danny J has been kind enough to break the film into 3 segments, so our feeble minds can digest it in small doses. This is due to the fact that watching it all at once may be overstimulating for some viewers, plus most of us only get 15-minute lunch breaks. Here is the third and final segment of a video I’ve watched religiously since its release.
