Surf­ing in the US… most of us think South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, Hawaii, Ore­gon even, but Texas? Prob­a­bly not. Evan Adam­son hopes you’ll think dif­fer­ent­ly. Surfers on Texas’ Gulf Coast have tak­en to the laid back swell with wet­suits and long­boards, for­go­ing Amer­i­ca’s usu­al coasts. In this video, the direc­tor takes a reg­u­lar day of surf­ing with friends, and crafts it into a unique film that sheds light on a vibrant surf cul­ture in an unsus­pect­ing place. 

Two insane long­board­ers dressed in fan­cy blue suits come tear­ing down the road at speeds over 60 miles per hour! If that’s not crazy enough, they are film­ing it them­selves, pass­ing the cam­era back and forth as they come bomb­ing down the street.

What would inspire such such non­sen­si­cal behav­ior? Adren­a­line rush? Brag­ging rights? Inter­net fame?

What­ev­er the rea­son, one of the answers has to be fun, because that’s clear­ly what is being had by Noah Sakamo­to and Patrick Riz­zo in Clare­mont, a short film by Adam Kimmel.
