Is surfing more than a simple sport? Yes, and it always has been.
Looking back through the history of surfing, and in particular, at the surfers who rose above all others to become true icons. They all share something in common that separated them from the rest. It was something more than just the victories they amassed during their career, it was the superior way they expressed themselves on a wave. Curren, Slater, Machado, MP, Buttons. It was their unique dance upon a wall of water that made them special.
Here we find Dion Agius and Brendon Gibbens musing on that very subject as part of a new clip from new wetsuit company Manera. They also journey around Dion Agius’ stunning adopted home state of Tasmania in order to find waves on which to dance.
If you’re into the philosophical side of surfing, and pristine waves in remote locales, then this is the clip for you.
