The art of waves

Un breve video, proposto recentemente anche dal sito del PWA, in cui Graham Ezzy , raccontando la sua “ispirazione” (e con un arcobaleno così… verrebbe anche a me… ah, ah, ah!), per 3/4 del filmato di quattro minuti girato ad Ho’okipa, fa cose da surfista “nostrano”… e per un 1/4, quando raggiunge le onde… da surfista hawaiano!

Graham: «Often, windsurfing movies are a montage of quick cuts—all the best action moments jammed together. These surf-pornos are fun to watch but leave out a lot of what windsurfing is actually like. With traditional filming, a 4-minute movie consists of many days condensed down into their best moments, and you never see more that a few consecutive seconds at a time. This, of course, leaves out much of the actual experience.
“The Art of Waves” is a single shot, which means it is a window into an uninterrupted 4 minutes at Ho’okipa. My narration is inspired by and is at times a paraphrase or even direct quotation of John Ruskin’s analysis of Turner’s painting, which touches on the concepts of the individual’s place in the infinite».
