PG-- "Hot Generation" ?
if so, been looking for the vhs for a while, maybe Hoole's got it...

Is there footy of him on Velo at Honolua?

PG said...

Piskian,

Yea, it's the most impressive riding on a canvas mat I've seen. Look at how the wind batters Nat Young, and he's solid as a rock when he surfs.


Jamie,

The top sequence is from Innermost Limits, and the bottom two are via Hot Generation.

As I recall, there was only one shot of George in Hot Generation at Honolua Bay, and it's not any good. The shots of Nat Young are really interesting, however.

In the last video, I love the way George kind of unweights at 00.26 seconds to get his mat rolling down the face.

More like flying down the face. Tremendous aero-lift under both the mat and the board. However the mat momentarily becomes a personal hovercraft skipping across the water on an air cushion (even with all that turbulence going on)!

Last clip is very good. Looks Cornish crowd magnet north facing beach called Harlyn on a strong SW wind.

Glad you referenced them PG. I was gonna say if those clips are new then GG really IS aging well!

The last clip looks like The Point at Ho'okipa with strong Konas, it's a tricky fast wave and George is flying!
