Larry Bertlemann 16mm Shredding – Circa 1970.
“Courtesy of theSURFnetwork, this episode of Sea Movies features 70′s North Shore standout Larry Bertlemann. Known for his low, compact turns and explosive above the lip “Larry-als,” He has been credited by the Dogtown crew as the single most influential person on their skating. When those guys were sinking into their boards on concrete curves, doing laybacks or looking to rise above the lip of their pool they were thinking of Larry. This clip provides a window into the future of surfing and skateboarding from that time period as he puts his “stinger” design shortboard through its paces.”

Via our friend James of Otter Surfboards… The journey of a forgotten bookmark; a wonderful feel good animated short film “Much Better Now” by Salon Alpin.
“The main character is a bookmark, stuck in a forgotten book. Both are connected by chance, in a life marked by standstill in a deserted room. One day a window is pressed open by a gust of wind, knocking over the book and blowing the bookmark onto the table. As they become separated, the journey begins. While the bookmark watches from a distance, the wind catches the pages, turning them into ocean waves. Unfolding hands and feet, the bookmark is swept back into the book. With a surfboard taken from the book, the character is given the opportunity to experience its environment in a new way – wipeouts, washouts and nosedives in a wild ocean follow.
Just as our hero is willing to resign, the ocean carries it higher and higher on a wave frozen in time – they become one. The wave breaks, releasing everything back into motion. The bookmark enjoys the ride of its life, carving and floating its way in and out of tubes, until the last page is reached. The book cover closes with a snap, spitting out the surfer. The journey through this episode of its life is over. As the protagonist tries to get back into the book, light reveals other parts of the room, fully packed with bookshelves. It faces endless challenges in its newly gained freedom.”
Uncommon Ideals is simply a stunning and breathtaking piece of work; an inspired combination of images and music, with Dan Crockett’s poem read by Jeff Hordley adding gravitas.
Uncommon Ideals was selected as the winner of the 2011 Shorties award at last years London Surf Film Festival.
The first breath is a beauty;
Whispering of the north like a kiss
Gilded hammer come tapping
Licking the dun dunes
Sweeping the tawny sea
A chill fist come rapping
At the doors of you,
Bay burn the first
Runners of the dawn train
Ripples, creeping in beneath castles
Under dismantled factories
Between oak groins tar black
Onto reefs of hell
And fain the eyes that track
This first building of
A copper peak like running snuff
Bang, bang, bang
From the north she pours
Stirring the remaining cod
Sister wind swung south
Waking the Farne-bound seals
And met by land she roars
Dipped in sepia,
Delight for uncommon ideals

From Dan’s website on the poem Uncommon Ideals; “A poem I wrote was used to frame Uncommon Ideals, a short film about surfing in the North Sea. It ended up going viral with 85,000 views on Vimeo. The text of the poem… it’s about craving things everyone else would think were mad.”
