Surf media mogul T Steele is at it again, but this time you've decided his next movie's fate. Kinda like a choose your own adventure (minus RL Stein), Taylor's latest flick entitled InnerSection is a movie that is surfer created, viewer selected, and ocean inspired (previously SAH-t after here). I went to the premiere in Honolulu a while back and to be honest, I don't even remember there being a TV in the bar. Anywhoo, the DVD is out now and the last remaining piece in the InnerSection puzzle is for you to decide whose part deserves to win $100,000!?
SAH's Top 3 Favorite parts:
1.) Craig Anderson- Fluid and stylish surfing that he makes look too damn easy and too damn fun. Helicopter shots + a feel-good electrohell summer-vibe track. Truly motivating section. Froth level: 8.5.
2.) Marco Giorgi- Bag o' tricks, steezy turns, and sick pit stops. Nice cinematography + classic Mumford and Sons track. Somewhat emo, but still inspiring. May have gotten first place if I was a regular foot. Froth level: 8.
3.) Matt Meola- Mind-baffling maneuvers, groundbreaking aerial tactics, and life above the lip. Good edit + epic electrohell track. This kid blew me away, he's definitely got a bright future ahead of him! Froth level: 8.5.
