I wouldn’t consider myself a “thrill seeker,” but after watching a surfing podcast by Bobby Hugges, I’m almost inclined to surf. My curiosity for surfing led me to websites and podcasts of a slim variety. But, once I ran across the site for Bobby, I wanted to see more!
The podcast was edited and shot by Julien Saloman; the cinematography was great, one of the main reasons I enjoyed the surfing podcast. The footage of surfers riding huge, angry waves was tremendous, and actually made me feel as if I was there on the water.
Bobby Hugges’ surfing podcast was clear, and the background music complimented the footage of surfers doing what they love; the intensity of the waves can be seen as the surfers are engulfed for a split second, then re-emerging seconds later still on their surf boards. The moments were intense! Bobby’s site has a variety of videos and podcasts to view from, and allows you a front-row seat to the thrill of surfing.
Next on my list for top 5 surfing podcasts would be Loose Films; a website that publishes a large selection of everything pertaining to surfing. If you are a surfer, or interested in surfing – this site is for you: “Every [movie] aims to capture the individual surfer, behind-the-scenes lifestyle, travel, as well as world-class surfing…” -LooseFilms.com
Designed and operated by Phil Latham from his love of surfing, Loose Films is based in London, England. It was different to learn of surfers in London, England.
Many people tend to think California, when they hear about surfing. I was enlightened to run across some websites about surfing in Florida. It was more like a “dunce” moment, realizing that Florida is also the home by beautiful beaches.
Surfguru offers podcasts and video interviews on surfing in the state of Florida. Not only do you get to view surfers riding the waves, but SurfGuru also release surf reports, weather and waves forecasting along with surfer news and a Hall of Fame: it’s like a one-stop shop for all things affiliated with surfing. If you are a Floridian surfer, the Surf Guru is the best tool to use.
A Wavelength Podcast by Mr. B Productions is where the thrills are seen! As I watched this podcast for the fifth time, I was still excited by the rush of seeing the surfer “race” the huge waves. This podcast also gave descriptive, informative surfer terms to relate with, throughout the footage.
Let’s not forget another well known place for surfing: Hawaii; footage of surfing in Hawaii shared by HodgsonHawaii on YouTube is another great podcast or video. The footage shows surfers dancing with some enormous waves, in such a beautiful backdrop of Hawaiian waters and landscape. The footage is so crisp, and clear, it looks as if the videographer was on the water, too.
After viewing the podcasts on surfing, I learned few things that all surfers should know: surfing terminology. I was enticed by the footage enough to want to try surfing, but I’m still not so convinced about being face-to-face with waves taller than a skyscraper!
