Over the Falls: The Glorious Ignominy!

Saluting the most sickening feeling in surf

Watch this sadistic little ditty a few times and you’ll notice a few distinct styles of disaster trips over the falls. There’s the “No, Wait, Shit, I Don’t Really Want This One!” (Most embarrassing). There’s the “High-line Barrel To Upside-Down Lipride Into Oblivion” (Awesome). I really enjoy the “Poorly-Thought-Out Lip Bash To Backwards Swan Dive”

  Considering that surfing has no real purpose other than pure fun, it’s a bit amazing that riding an easier board—the quickest, most simple way to be sure you actually have fun in every session—was either ignored, or outright mocked for most of the last, oh I don’t know, let’s say, three decades. Still is,

I watched this video about three times before I even realized it was in black-and-white, so captivating is Noa Deane’s performance paired with hard-driving music. This is how surf clips should be. The slo-mo biz at the beginning not your jam? Take a deep breath, wait, and enjoy what comes next.
