(2) killedthewind – WALK ABOVE WATER

killedthewind’s up-close-and-personal view of what it feels like to ride above the ocean (for those who don’t know). For those that do know, this is a film of progressive strapless surfing, kite wake-skating, and other wind fueled mayhem.

What does Michael Air Jordan have to do with surfing in the ocean? We put on a pair of his kicks to see if they make you fly.

(3) Moments – Free Full Length 2011 Quiksilver Surf Team Movie

(5) Castles in the Sky – Taylor Steele Movie – OFFICIAL 2010 Surf Teaser
Castles in the Sky was filmed in 5 exotic countries (think Peru and India) over 3 years, and looks like it’s as much a open love letter to the sport of surfing as much as it is to travel.

(6) Night Surf at Jaws
Mark Visser, with specially engineered LED lighting built into his buoyancy vest and board, became the first to night surf at Jaws off Maui, mainly on feel, in a surreal 2 am session.

(7) Flaring Up – Surfing with a Flare – Red Bull Minor Threat
As if big wave surfing wasn’t enough, veteran surfer Bruce Irons offers a flair for the dramatic as he rides atop a wave with lit flares attached to his board. Looks like he’s surfing on a lava flow to us.

Business Insider: This surfer is a member of the Red Bull Minor Threat 2011, a team made up of four veteran surfers and four surfing juniors, with the premise that the two different levels of surfing expertise will drive each other towards further greatness in the waves.

Tell me that this wouldn’t make a killer Olympic event?

I hope not.
