THE TEN COM­MAND­MENTS OF ... FOL­LOW­ING A SURF­ING IN­FLU­ENCE

Tracks - - Bitsa -

THOU SHALT … 01. Watch ev­ery bit of footage avail­able on your favourite surfer and then edit your

own high­lights clip. Just like Shane Dorian did with Tom Curren. See p60. 02. Imi­tate your heroes style and jive but throw your own ex­pres­sion into the mix. 03. En­deav­our to mas­ter the one move your in­flu­ence is best known for. 04. Be friendly but not too syco­phan­tic with com­ments on their in­sta­gram feed. 05. Make sure you see them surf in the flesh at least once. 06. En­deav­our to get your hands on one of their dis­carded boards. 07. Own at least one piece of signed mem­o­ra­bilia but never sleep with it. Weird. 08. Prob­a­bly go through a for­get­table phase when hair-cuts, clothes, mu­si­cal

taste, walk and talk mimic your muse. 09. Be able to quote word for word any clas­sic line your surf­ing hero has said in a movie. 10. Ac­cept that in­flu­ences change over the years – one day you will be watch­ing

Mal clips.
