Ben “Skindog” Skinner and Marcus Lascelles have this week released a sick little video of a recent trip to some frigid looking waters and it is a belter. In conjunction with Carve magazine and filmed by Chris Levi, this short Surf film “Bleak Treasures” is packed with a little bit of everything.
With Marcus on his shortboard and Skindog on his trusty longboard, the two of them tackle an undisclosed slab break and not only score some absolute gems, they also take some poundings too. Marcus takes on some insanely steep and impossible looking drops and in between the floggings scores a couple of high-speed barrels, the speed of which must have left him breathless.
Skindog, shows exactly why he is the reigning European longboard champ with some classy riding, including perfect tube rides, toes casually draped over the nose of the board and floater that hangs effortlessly on the lip. One of my favourite moments though is the insolent little head dip he throws in at the end of one particularly sweet barrel at around two and a half minutes.
The two of them have been having a blast and you can find out more about the trip and the waves they scored in the March issue of Carve Magazine. I have added the video below, make sure you find time to take a look and let us know what you think of this clip, Do you like to see videos that feature “warts n’ all” wipeouts, or do you prefer clean cut carefully edited perfect waveriding?
