Web Surfing: Feb. 16-22

Today’s video roundup takes us to Indo, Tasmania, SoCal, NorCal and through the shaping bay of a big wave shaper. Submit yours through Tumblr. You can also connect with us by dropping us a line in the comments section here, or on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or info korduroy dot tv.

Sasando

This video came to us last week from Facebook fan Matt Right. And while the surfing is fantastic (it’s Indo, after all), what really steals the show is the Indonesian man’s hand-made instrument. It is called a sasando and it is native to Rote Island. Made out of bamboo and palmyra leaves, legend has it that the idea came to a young boy in a dream filled with beautiful music. Not wanting to lose the sounds after he woke up, he created an instrument that could play them perfectly.

Introducing: Creed McTaggart

Epokhe has a new ambassador that they want you to know about. And after you watch this video you will find it hard to forget him. His name is Creed McTaggert. He rides colorful boards and blasts airs like you wouldn’t believe. He also has a tattoo of the Pink Panther playing a sax and he may or may not be made of rubber.

Last week, Ryan Burch spoke to us about the harmonious relationship between control and speed while surfing and for shaping boards. In today’s video, shaper Chris Christenson discusses another crucial alliance – that of big-wave surfer to shaper.

The Sea of Possibility

In this short by Nicholas Damen, Jack Lynch manages to catch some prime logging waves through a crowded lineup in Tasmania. Focus on his right arm–it’s like he has it around the shoulders of an invisible lover. Maybe she’s riding an invisible log right next to his.

Timmy Missions

Timmy Missions subdues the otherwise frigid and roguish giants of northern California. And what better way to complement his conquests than with a doom metal anthem?

DAYS

Since we’re eagerly awaiting the premiere of Jack Coleman’s Secret Sound Underground, we’ve been digging into his past, including through his Happy Beach series, to understand his unique creative vision a bit better. This relatively recent but moderately obscure film by Coleman is actually a music video for the band Balmorhea. It was shot last summer on 8mm film in Indonesia. The music, the film grain, the exotic location and the characteristic mash-up of seemingly disparate images combine to show us a slightly softer side of Jack Coleman.
