Hurricane Sandy brought the unimaginable to South Florida, a heavy swell that many surfers couldn’t help but charge. Colorblind Media presents a slow motion gem featuring pro surfers Evan Geiselman, Chris Ward, Cory Lopez, Shea Lopez, the Tayler Brothers, Jesse Heilman, Oliver Kurtz, Asher Nolan and Pete Mendia, as they paddle out in pumping South Florida surf.
While Florida isn’t exactly known for huge waves, these athletes made history with a rare session brought on by Superstorm Sandy’s unforgiving wrath. Filmed mostly in slow motion, the Cavin brothers pin pointed surreal moments throughout the video when athletes almost seemed to be standing still, as they reach up to graze the inside of the barreling waves.
