SENTIMENT & FLOATING

.
Below are excerpts from a couple of the Volcom films I've made.
.
In carefree moods I sometimes feel like I let this part of CREEPY FINGERS (2006) end up a bit "much" and a little overboard with the time synced score of the cymbals, but since I made it while in a sentimental frame of mind and since I'm presently feeling sentimental... I'm goin' with it. Plus Gavin Beschen's surfing is... well... there's a reason why people have called him 'The Alien' all these years.

And an effort to lighten the load with Bruce Irons making the subject of passing away sound as trouble-free and easy as he makes critical surfing look in THE BRUCE MOVIE (2005).

My favorite part and surfing in the flick!
Just love that 2nd to last drop at Backdoor.Oh, and the lil' barrel after that also.

Oh and the music in that section of the Bruce movie is????
Really love it cuz it's very Surf film retro combined with a very contemporary surfer.
O.K. tube rider too.

thanks Jet. i really appreciate your positive voice on the subject. yeah Gavins' backdoor closeout is pretty nuts, huh! i've also always been partial to the 5th surf shot from the start of his section— the backside bottom turn with casual dragging of his rear hand in the spray off his board.

how fun do those first few waves of the Bruce excerpt look for hullin! the song from that part is off Floyd's Ummagumma (Studio Album), track 7: The Narrow Way Part 1. a nugget that I think people sometimes forget about. i think Grantchester Meadows is another forgotten mellow gem off that album.
