OK, Sorry, I’ve been a bit silly with the title, but there is nothing daft or simple about Seb Smart’s Surfing in this video we’ve found of Seb on a recent trip to South Sumatra. Into de Jungle, is the latest video release by Sam Breeze and the four and a half minute clip is carried along accompanied by the highly appropriate tune – The Wizard by Black Sabbath.
The opening two minutes show Seb on a beauty of a left, a wave that has a bit of everything, steep racy drops, plenty of wall for drawing out big carves on and a feathering lip that is perfect for long floaters and the occasional barrel. As the video reached the half way point I was beginning to wonder if Seb only liked going left and wondered if his backside riding was up to much – I should have known better!
Once Seb gets onto some rights he starts popping all sorts of excellent tricks like shove its, switch riding and 360 airs. The waves are absolute perfect and Seb treats them as one big playground, with a confident and laid back swagger about him
The video can be found below for your pleasure, so crank up the sound and expand the video out to full screen and enjoy this short film of pure escapism. Be warned though, if you are stuck at work and unlikely to hit the waves today, you better not watch it more than once, it will only drive you crazy!
