Abstract Barrel Fever

Jason Hall has been dutifully capturing his daily sessions first in photos and then in video for, well, as long as I can remember. ‘Daily’ as in every day, without fail. Most of his photos and video are purely about the act of enjoying the water, be it surfing, boogie boarding, handplaning, etc… But this video is oddly moving, abstracting the lines of the wave and surfer. An inspired, delightful experiment. A new, unexpected aesthetic for surfing.

Oh and Mr. Hall will be moving to Costa Rica soon, so congratulations are in order. Welcome to life outside the mothership.
