Clipz: JOB Eighties & More

Here’s a selection of some recent surf videos that caught my eye. Keep scrolling for more.

Jamie O’Brien was ahead of the curve when it came to vlogging — which seems to be an essential part of any up and coming pro’s self-promotion strategy these days — and he’s also collected a bunch of rad Eighties boards on the sly. At some point, JOB was selling this awesome Shawn Stussy thruster that was made for Gotcha founder Michael Tomson. Anyway he takes out some of his toys in some fun North Shore surf in the video above, including what looks like a Larry Bertlemann twin fin.

Craig Anderson and Kai Neville dropped a new clip without any warning, and the reception has been great. I know a lot of vintage surfboard fans don’t care for Firewire and Haydenshapes, but I happen to admire what both brands have done. Check out the last segment, where Anderson pilots an interesting looking Haydenshape single fin through some gorgeous left hand barrels.

This one is just a trailer, and a brief one at that, but I’m intrigued by the release of Fantastic Acid‘s new movie, “Interstellar Low Ways.” Monsieur Acid is based in France, where he shapes hulls, glasses boards, publishes books, and pilots some alternative surf craft through some inviting-looking waves. The film is available on DVD through the Fantastic Acid website.
