I recently stumbled again upon this clip from Jbrother's film Longer. In my humble opinion it is still one of the most beautiful longboard sequences on film. The film maker performed a subtle stroke of genius by choosing Errol Garner's Misty as the soundtrack to JT's offbeat flow. Joel, meanwhile is an alchemist. As demonstrated here he can turn any wave he rides, even little sectiony peelers like this, into pure gold. That's the beauty of classical style as exemplified by Mr Tudor. Under his feet functional flow can assume the status of high culture. Dig. Eight to the bar.
