Astute surf movie aficionados ear’s will prick up at the beginning of this new Italo Ferreira clip. The tune Red Handed Slight of Hand by US band Cursive was used as the backing track to an iconic Parko section in Taylor Steele’s Campaign.

Italo may be borrowing the backing track to a classic here, but the backhand savagery he dishes out in this clip is definitely at the vanguard of modern surfing. The speed, the power, and the rotations are next level.

Also worth mentioning is the switchfoot gauntlet thrown down by Italo here. Is there anyone better?
