WAVE OF THE WEEK

Surfer: Ellis Ericson
Film: Josh Simpson
Date: Early March, 2013

Remember when Mike Hynson and Robert August ran over the sand dune at Cape St. Francis in the 1969 film, The Endless Summer? Remember the absurd perfection they encountered, Bruce Brown declaring in the voice-over that they had indeed discovered a perfect wave. Nowadays of course perfection is subjective, different surfers seek different types of waves, but for many surfers this wave here is the perfection akin to that famous sequence at South Africa's Cape St Francis. Stay tuned as we'll be bringing you a video from this session later this week.
