Watch "Lost in Thought" — A new independent surf vid
Hunter Martinez just released a new full-length surf vid for free. Made entirely on their own dime, Hunter and his friends throw it back to a time of patience and love — making a surf vid because they want to. It is raw and full of sick clips and great tunes. A throwback to …Lost vids. Taylor vids. Kai vids. Videos that become part of the conversation forever. Thank you for making this Hunter. Consider it on repeat over here.
Oh, and Hunter’s recent post on Instagram sums it up perfectly. Give it a read and hit play:
I’d like to reiterate how thankful I am for all the nice feedback on this video. Whether you like a song, one clip, or one section, my goal was to hold back from the immediacy of posting instas/single edits and remember that it’s worth waiting & working on something that may take a while. When I was younger, to get siked we’d all watch surf movies that Taylor Steele or Kai Neville had made along with marine layer, 3slobs and other blogs everyday. Nowadays I think that everyone feels the need to create their own image and based on the surf films I loved growing up, the best times were when a bunch or rippers were all on a trip together or all friends surfing in a surf movie. So in our case, I wanted to make this video of all my friends, at home/on trips having a good time and surfing the globe no sponsors involved, to show that we like to surf and I like to film because we truly just love it. I obviously want to work with brands and companies in the future but as a base point and for my first longer film I thought it would best to make it our own piece for the soul reason of surfing and filming. Hope you enjoy it. —Hunter Martinez
