The Sickest Surf Video Slows Down Time

Rip Curl recently collaborated with Timeslice Films to create a surf video that's out of this world! Shot over two days on Malaysia's Sunway Lagoon Wavepool, the video features the world's four best surfers, Mick Fanning, Stephanie Gilmore, Owen Wright and Matt Wilkinson, as they show off their sick skills in front of 52 different DSLR cameras. The freeze action is called bullet-time.

As Ripcurl explains, "The revolutionary campaign captures surfing in a way never seen before, with the final visuals baring more resemblance to a fight scene from the famous Matrix movies than a promotional surfing video."

Timesilde Films says, "This project was revolutionary for us, because we'd never worked with surf before and was revolutionary for Rip Curl, because it was their first experience with Timeslice technology. The results achieved are really quite remarkable."
