As members of the general public, when we watch a surfer win a tour event we see a very filtered version of what it actually takes to win. There are many factors that can make or break a surfers run toward the finish line. In this new edit, which was shot in and around Filipe’s victory at the Hurley Pro Trestles, he gives the viewer an intimate look at everything that goes into a win. From family support and group prayer sessions, to the love of a good woman and the wonder of a child. Oh, and of course there’s heaps of amazing surfing in there too.
