What’s Kolohe Andino’s Favorite Surf Part?

Motivation to make oncoming whitewater your punching bag.

When someone’s performance matches their full potential an audience can feel it — the universe sends out a silent “boom” of approbation.

I think of Eric Clapton’s 1999 performance of “Old Love”, or Joan Didion writing about California in 1968’s Slouching Toward Bethlehem, or Griffin Colapinto — right now.

In this fourth installment of …Lost’s “5’5 19 1/4 Century”, Kolohe Andino reveals and reenacts his own universal boom moment — Tom Curren’s part in the original 1995 …Lost film, “5’5 19 1/4”.

Tom Curren’s surfing is forever memorable for the children of the 80s and 90s. And those Curren moments were passed down to their own children. Dino Andino likely showed Kolohe Andino this movie when Kolohe was just in diapers.

Kolohe’s “boom” moment.

In this 23-minute clip, Kolohe shapes his own board and then proceeds to surf extremely well on it, even though it looks like a Y2K rockered-out banana.

The …Lost crew also go around the planet to Australia, Brazil, Central America, Morocco, Baja, and even the world famous T-Street.

Have a watch.
