A romanticised examination of surf culture in Montana and Idaho…
In this second episode of Vans’ Weird Waves series, which is hosted by the Puerto Rican Dylan Graves, he and San Clemente kid Jett Schilling surf river waves in Montana and Idaho.
You’ll remember in episode one Dylan cast quite a glow over Lake Superior, riding six-foot waves in the world’s largest fresh-water lake.
Here we see Dylan and fifteen-year-old Schilling trussed up in hoods and body rubber.
It’s very cold. Murky, cold water.
That’s minus one for the rest of the world tied to the metric system.
Both surfers, therefore, are as elastic as an after-birth vagina.
What’s most interesting, I think, is the sort of surfboard that works in these waves: wide, flat, shovel-nosed things, so white and rectangular they look like body-of-Christ wafers.
