Ian represents something that the sport of surfing is often missing these days.
A lot of pro surfers take themselves very seriously, and it’s all about training, contests, more training, more contests. This repetitive way of living can clash with what surfing really is all about, and that’s FUN.
It’s fair to say that Ian’s got the fun aspect dialled. Over the years he’s been known for delivering some fairly bonkers and creative edits, but in my opinion this one takes the lot.
A very well balanced combination of high performance surf clips, cinematic atmosphere, emotional slow-mo moments and, well, french banter.
