If these are the rejects, we’re scared to imagine what the A+ clips are like.
You can file Yago Dora under ‘surfers we really enjoy watching, but due to the pandemic and the WSL’s gap Year we’d completely forgotten about’.
It was a happy surprise then to see this edit pop up, and it was a much-needed reminder why we love the Brazilian’s surfing - style, nonchalance and an air game that rival’s the best on the planet.
It’s also worthy of note that when the description of the video, which was written in Portuguese, was thrown into Google Translate it became apparent that this edit was simply a way for Yago to make space on his Hard Drive. It read, ‘Images from the last months in Floripa that were accumulating in HD’. These are Yago’s reject clips. Whatever it is he is holding onto, we can’t wait to see it.
