View From a Blue Moon - video

One of the best videos made on surfing - all possible thanks to the technology.

The movie follows rising surf star John John Florence as he cuts his way across 50-foot swells off remote shores in Africa, Brazil, and Tahiti. The 23-year-old Hawaii native starred in the roughly $2 million film, which was a partnership with Brain Farm, a production company that is the Lucas Films of action sports filmmaking. Florence and his crew spent three years, broke about 70 surfboards, and employed 2 helicopters and three high-tech 4K RED cameras (cost: $50,000 each) in a day.

It’s those cameras, along with Florence’s daring, that give the film its power and raw beauty—and will make any amateur YouTuber shudder with envy.
