Ari Browne is a surfer who gets his rocks off riding finless and this is demonstrated perfectly in the his latest video called The Rookie. The light hearted and comical RVCA video follows the exploits of Ari under the guise of a German toy collector from Leipzig who discovered the joy of surfing after obtaining a booty shaking surfing gentleman toy. Once the bug had bitten, Ari also modified his surfboard with a Lazy Susan and fell in love with spinning whilst surfing!
Whilst the clip is extremely jocular, Ari’s board riding skills are sublime and he is soon shown riding his finless surfboard better than most can ride a quad and showcases his sliding, slipping and board spinning with extreme skill. Dropping in subtle little tail slides and extremely loose turns, Ari surfs with a style that can only be found by embracing the finless mindset.
We have embedded the video of Ari in full flow on his finless surfboard below. Let us know what you think of the mocumentary and have you ever tried finless surfing? Maybe it’s time to give it a go?
