When I was younger I think one of my favorite videos was 5'5 19 1/4. The segment where Tom Curren shapes his own board goes out and surfs really well on it blew my mind. Tom Curren at the time was riding for Rip Curl had a mohawk kinda of. He style was really smooth, poetic and inspiring.
I think it was about 16 years later, Dane Reynolds does the same thing. After watching this video on www.marinelayerproductions.com I said it was the best segment I've ever seen. I didn't shoot or edit any of these segments, I just thought of talking about them. If you haven't seen the Dane Shaping the "Wave Bandit" I'd recommend watching Tom Currens segment first then Danes.
