You're Probably Wondering What's Going On Here
Let Wilem Banks explain.
Prior to this video, we knew very little of Santa Cruz's loose-limbed tradesman, Wilem Banks. Now we want to know more.
Here's what we've gathered thus far:
Wilem is a psychopath. That fall at Mavs (and his response to it) was not normal.
Wilem is handsy. The way he toppled that tree had us slightly aroused.
Wilem's technical skill is immense. The nose-pick for the camera at 3:15 was pure poetry.
Wilem is not easily satisfied. Despite some valiant efforts at California's big wave venues (see: the final ride), Wilem feels he "hasn't come anywhere close to his dream wave" yet.
Nice to meet you Wilem. We are sufficiently impressed and intrigued for whatever's next.
