Set to the awesome beats of DRUMETRICS that serves a steady soundtrack flow perfect for the video at hand, the smiling bag is not your typical surfing video. Instead, it’s a cascade of the fucking dope, the psychedelic Californian coolness, and the artistically captivation all presented in a just shy of five minute long video that will make sure think again about the stereotypical surfer dude profile.
The video is chockfull of powerful on-water stunts that showcases a dazzling array of extreme surfing moves.
While stunning wide shots of billowing waves, that slow-mo, close-up, underwater angle of board and body, and the classic “tunnel-vision” shot that makes you feel like swimming are all great for your every other surf vid, this one takes you on a very different journey ideally viewed when slightly (or very) faded. The above trailer showcases what the full effort will bring to the table, and if it’s more of this shit right here, then we’re in. The film itself follows as a sequel to the filmmaker’s previous Nti Sheeto (Knee-sheet-o) film, which you can check out here, and similarly was shot in Indonesia, but with the addition of parts shot in Australia and good ol’ USA.
Starring surfers Ozzie Write, Craig Anderson, Noa Deane and Chippa Wilson, the video is chockfull of powerful on-water stunts that showcases a dazzling array of extreme surfing moves. Shot using a mix of 16mm, Super 8 and Digital, the smiling bag is a testament to wonders of the sport, and the creative mind.
