The Slab Board Surfing Video

SLAB from CIRCULATE on Vimeo.

This hypnotic video of a slab style break, or reef break does a really good job of showing how the power of the ocean essentially comes full stop onto a slab of rock. The board surfers here are doing a pretty decent job of judging where to grab their rides. I was not quite so skillful when I went to San Diego. Bird Rock is a beautiful relatively secret spot to go catch some waves. But it is a beefy, bowl shaped break. We just don’t have anything like this on Lake Michigan. Very cool stuff!

This footage is from the upcoming feature film, The Way of the Ocean
