A slightly bizarre and very amusing video has reached the Surf-Report office this week and we thought we would share it with you. The extremely clever animation must have taken an age to produce and follows a gang of plastic, muscle-bound toys as they surf perfect barrels in the snow. Given the idea for this mini movie by his kids Ian Jazo, (who normally films weddings), has crafted this short film entitled “sun surf and snow.”
The story is a little odd and jumps around a bit, from a gang of surfers tackling a nice looking left in the snow, to a ninja looking surfer surfing on his own at a secret indoor spot. There is a little bit of love action thrown in at about the halfway mark, but before long the lucky dude dumps the babe and heads out to the surf!
Ian must have an infinite amount of patience to have filmed this, especially with his two children “helping” all the time and the finished clip is undeniably amusing and well edited. I particularly enjoyed the point of view camera work, trailing the ninja surfer in the barrel towards the end of the clip, and the paddleout and duckdiving is very cleverly done.
Although not the first time we have seen this type of Surf movie, it is nonetheless entertaining and Ian promises his video is to be continued, so we wait with baited breath. Below the article we have embedded Ian’s movie “sun surf and snow” and also the clip “Perfect Holiday” that was doing the rounds a couple of years ago. Take a look and let us know what you think of Ian Jazo’s new surf movie?
