Ad Nut
Feb 13, 2020

Beware, this video may lure you into the sea

After watching this beautiful film from Surfrider Foundation Australia, you too will want to pledge allegiance to 'The Surfer's Code'.

Ad Nut is a lifelong landlubber and tree dweller, but this film is giving Ad Nut ideas. If Twiggy can manage water skiing, then why couldn't Ad Nut become a world-famous surfer? Imagine how fabulous Ad Nut will look, dropping casually into waves that are easily 100 times Ad Nut's height, carving and cutting back with aplomb as onlookers gape and lose their minds in adoration.


Anyway, the film is narrated by Mick Fanning (a real champion surfer) and directed by Justin McMillan (also a surfer), with production house Heckler (probably also staffed by a bunch of surfers). The Surfrider Foundation is not-for-profit dedicated to protecting Australia’s waves and beaches.
