“It’s Better in the Wind” is still going strong. Scott Toepfer and the guys are now in the midst of making a short film (shot mostly on Super 8mm) that chronicles their freewheeling life of adventure on the road.
For me, “It’s Better in the Wind” is the essence of leaving the hassles and drama of the 9-to-5 grind in the dust– where it belongs. That’s the vibe that Scott captures so beautifully. It’s not about posing, man. It’s about showing. The images crystalize the adventure and joy of hitting the road with good friends– to inspire themselves, as well as us, to never stop living for the day– not the man. Amen.
Luckily, the contest has been called off for the day by the judges due to "6-foot closeout waves"... Hu? I (and probably everyone else in the surf world) would be pretty stoked to watch some Brazos take a pounding in some big closeouts, but seriously though I am kinda surprised... I guess the closeouts would mean a 1-maneuver-style contest, making it weird/stupid to "claim" a wave that you did just 1 choppy air reverse on... or is that standard practice in Brazil? JK, JK...
