Drone Footage of Malibu

This is how you shoot the pier

| posted on August 27, 2014

Sorry, Laird Hamilton. But piers are best shot without a paddle in hand, so we must say this one of Allen Sarlo takes the cake. For now. With Hurricane Marie currently blessing the California coastline with solid swell, expect to see more pier shooting and photos of waves that don’t look like they belong in the Golden State.

      Who cares?? I hope that’s the worst thing that happens to you all day.


    Thank you, That was Great!!!! One of the greatest surf days ever!!

  • Rob White

    Lush! Now all we need is someone to risk flying their drone behind the surfer, through the pilings!
    (Oh, and if it’s not too much to ask; the rider HAS to smash the closeout!).

  • KR from Cali

    To quote Laird “You have a single fin mentality”. Surfer Mag is obviously bias against stand up, but why. It’s here to stay, so get over it and show some respect. I noticed you didn’t use the video of Alan and Laird shooting the pier together. Respect is earned and it shouldn’t matter what board they are on. No respect for you bruddah.

    too bad Sarlo is a dick

    Laird’s shoot was way more technical and on a much bigger wave. At least Laird stayed in the section while shooting the pier not running out on the shoulder and shooting from 10 yds in front of the peak.
