1,000 Frames Per Second With Cinematographer Chris Bryan

The man with the Phantom cam talks slo-mo in surf

The footage is mind-bending. There seems no better way to appreciate the full majesty of a wave, in all its beauty and danger and magnitude, than at 1,000 FPS. The same could be said for the surfers, Slater and Florence and Mathews and company, whose skill, technique, and style gets lost in the speed of waves at real-time. What you see in the above clip came from Australian cinematographer Chris Bryan, who swims in these lineups with a camera that costs the same as a house in the Midwest and weighs as much as many of the household appliances that'd go into it. He's distinguished himself as surfing's Phantom cam man.
