A thirteen-minute coda of Griff's 2018 Hawaiian season, Sunset, Pipe and so on…
Like most of you, I find little to be ecstatic about in the overuse of slow-motion and ultra high-definition vision in surf edits.
What I get a kick out of is fly-on-the-wall documentary, little moments where we get to know a person, his habits, the way he talks, reacts to people, walks.
This edit, which compresses a few weeks of Griff’s Hawaiian season, hits us with both.
We get the RED, which ain’t so bad in this case ’cause Griffin is a mature artist in command of his powers, style wise, but what makes it is the off-the-cuff gear.
See Griffin with beautiful foreign girl in one-piece yellow swimsuit. When he asks her to DM his Instagram account, she tells Griffin she already has while provocatively swinging what one hopes to be experienced hips.
Kolohe Andino howls “Ow, ow, owwwwwwwww!”
See Griffin at Pipe, before and after, exchanges with Joel Parko and so on.
I do think this featurette would’ve had more weight if it’d been loosed a week or two after Pipe finished, but as an examination of a man with modesty and moderation and charm, it’s a charming enough rendezvous.
