The beloved pro surfer who cried for three days after the World Surf League joke backlash continues to silence critics with a brass-knuckle short, “Ecstatic Yo-Yo”!

“All I know is that when you make love, you change a woman a little and a woman changes you a little.”

(Editor’s note: Two years ago, the new yorker published a very good, and unusually raw, story by Jamie Brisick titled “Surfing in the age of the ubiquitous camera », who describes Mikey February’s surfing thus: “His hand jive, soul arcs and toreador flourishes play on camera in a way that breaks the spell of the traveling surfer in distant solitude. Her style is as shy as the duck-headed selfie. “)

In this collection of surf clips and scenic vistas of Ivory Coast, we find the South African surfer Mikey February, not like the pro surfer who once raced around the world, but a surfer like a beautiful object, a beautiful thing, worthy of worship.

No one, I believe, can resist falling in love with such a face.

Alex Knost, a surfer who has carved his way out of the cultural jungle, also stars in the short. A little sixties, a few seventies, all from the 2000s. A retro-futuristic-modernist cupcake that loves surfing!

“The longer you surf, the more waves you ride, the more surfers you meet and that helps broaden your perception and respect for everything,” says Alex.

The triumvirate is completed by Lee-Ann Curren, the thirty-two-year-old daughter of three-time world surfing champion Tom Roland Curren, unbeatable for most of her career and who popularized the modern fish surfboard.
