Break from Palestine for: REALLY SERIOUS SURFING

Surfing's certainly a reason for living for some, but this little flick REALLY AIMS TO ELEVATE SURFING. Apocalyptic Irish brogue describing a relationship to waves. A desperately dark film about a leisure activity and art. Beautiful, justifies itself in the beauty. Some would say pretentious, I'd say finding the dance in the action.

DARK SIDE OF THE LENS from Astray Films on Vimeo.

Tanks to uncle john for the link. Man's got good taste.

"I never set out to become anything in particular, only to live creatively and push the scope of my experience. For adventure, for passion."

I often ask people what they want to be when they grow up and here I am not knowing or wanting to commit to a single one thing myself. I think he says this perfectly. I also love "I want to document it the way I see it in my head and the way I feel it in the sea." I would love to someday be able to show how I see things, how I feel things. I wonder if he feels that he has done that successfully in this video, conveyed it the way he feels it.

Beautiful beautiful.
