A short film on Texas surfing

Two of my favourite things feature pretty heavily in this film, the riding of Longboard surf craft and the musical stylings of Future Islands. Makes me wonder why do so many surf films still use such awful music when its so easy to get right, just use Future Islands, or anything from 1969 by The Stooges (obvs;)

Anyway lets get back to this film, I found it on the ever rad Longobaord retro days, who in turn found it on the equally rad Korduroy, who are always a safe bet for a sideways look at surfing. This one documents the very healthy looking Logging scene in Texes, yes Texas, the Wild West, that place with the big hats and vast expanses of desert and cactus, not the first place that comes to mind when you think of surfing, but it made me happy to remember if you want waves you can find them.
