Relaxing Video of the Day: 27-Second Barrel in Africa Wins Surfline’s GoPro of the World Contest

goprooftheworld-koasmith

This video is from a couple months back but nice to watch after a hectic Monday. Earlier this year Koa Smith submitted this footage from an epic wave he caught in Skeleton Bay, Namibia. The clip landed him the $20,000 top prize in Surfline’s GoPro of the World contest. When I watch it I can’t help but think about the amazing planet we live on. Watch the video below (slow-mo first and then the original clip).

    I love this video, but I’ve got to say it’s anything but relaxing for me- I was holding my breath the whole 27 seconds!

  • So relaxing!!!

R.I.P. Prodigy

Listening to this Shlohmo remix of Shook Ones on repeat in memory of Prodigy. The track is from Shlohmo’s summer mix for Sneeze Mag, the whole thing is worth a listen.
