Quick Cuts is a new regular section where up and coming (and established … yeah OGs!) New Zealand surfers can post their latest edits. This one is bang on featuring Taranaki shredder Kalani Louis getting some driving time in down the coast.
“This is a recent edit from an insane weekend of waves at one of my favourite spots along the $%#@% Road,” he laughs. “Last weekend me and some mates, Tom Butland, Kalani Watts and Anaru Green, headed down the coast to chase a pumping swell and we cashed in.”
Kalani’s mate George Syme came down and they filmed all weekend.
“George puts heaps of time into filming and makes all of our edits as well,” Kalani shares. “I should mention that I just bought a ute so pretty frothing on that even though I still need a pillow to see over the steering wheel.”
Go give the clip a whirl …
Surfer: Kalani Louis
Filmed and Edited: George Syme
