Slo Mo My God

HD super slow motion video of big wave surfer Dylan Longbottom in a 12 foot monster barrel the first shots of their kind ever recorded.

Such beauty and as I watched it the piece reminded me about advertising and coming up with ideas, it's all about timing and pure persistence capturing that moment on film to commuicate the idea, visually this is stunning,the camera positioned underwater where you see the surf board cut through the water and that closing frame, wonderful.

Very much like the Guinness surfer ad from AMV - The best things come to those who wait.
