Fast and Loose by Surfer Magazine: Clipz

Greetings, Shredderz! Here are some of the best surfboard-related videos I’ve found online recently, starting with a must-watch from Surfer Magazine.

“Fast and Loose” by Surfer Magazine / Quiksilver

This one is worth grabbing a seat for. Surfer Magazine and Quiksilver present a nice fifteen minute mini-documentary on Mark Richards. Before Slater came along and redefined the sport Richards was the single most successful competitor in the history of surfing. Moreover, MR won four consecutive world titles on self-shaped equipment, which is a truly mind-blowing feat. I love the fact the movie also features current day pros Zeke Lau and Kael Walsh taking some MR boards through their paces. You can actually enter a raffle to win the board Lau surfed; more details here.

“Catch Fish” by William Aliotti and Ryan Lovelace

This is a short but sweet edit in which surfer William Aliotti threads some thumpin’ Indian Ocean tubes on a Ryan Lovelace-shaped twin fin fish.

Devon Howard by NobodySurf

I really like watching Devon Howard surf. He’s the new WSL Longboard Tour commissioner, and he has the chops to back up the gig. As much as I like watching him on a longboard, I actually prefer Howard’s surfing on mid-lengths. I love the smooth, unhurried style and the way he links one solid turn after another.
