This is Neil surfing

I shot this one amazing morning in September trying out the new GoPro. It’s just slammed together footage but I like the way that it really feels like Cornish surfing – only Neil really can make 1ft waves look this effortless. Half an hour later and a sea mist appears, brightly lit by the strong sun, it would have been amazing if the battery had lasted – so never shoot without backups even if its just for fun. There’s a pure aesthetic to Neil’s surfing, he reminds me of a dancer – no wasted movement, just pure form and function. One day we’ll make a whole film with him.
