There is a segment of the video where he does tow-in surfing. If you haven't seen the whole thing, click the YouTube link near the tags. I tried to extract another segment tonight, looks like it might now be locked down for DRM.

The water's fine.... | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
That guy is amazing on those stix. What kind of wax you use for Dirt and Grass...? And, it must be hell on his ski sponsor.

I've been skiing since I could walk - tho snowboarding is more fun in super deep powder (particularly), as I've found - in the Vail Back Bowls. But I haven't gone to the mountains in 10 years or more. It is simply cost prohibitive. Additionally I wind up missing good surf traditionally. Expected or otherwise, I get real surf FOMO, and then I hear about it. - I don't recognize the I Assume it isn't me. I think I have better style too (closer feet with knocked knees if possible).
I know the kid getting worked in tje second video. No real youtube-justice for the spot. I'd like more footage of myself riding...but most of the material available is "the Bay" break, or small. 1forpeace may have clip that someone sent me a ways back - I would have to search for mine.

Candide does pretty well on water. Unfair tho' cause by the unified snow/waterski rules, I'm pretty sure that tropical water temps are forbidden. Warren Miller just passed on - or he'd be the authority to ask. I'd imagine that Candide would have worked with him at some point.
