TUBE OF THE YEAR


I WAS IN TAHITI THIS YEAR DURING ONE OF THE BEST PADDLE IN DAYS .
THAT DAY I CAPTURED A VERY UNIQUE IMAGE , FROM THE JUDGE'S TOWER DURING THE TRIALS OF THE WCT IN TEAHUPO'O.
IT AS WHEN BRUNO SANTOS SCORED A PERFECT TEN POINT RIDE ...
WITH THAT FOOTAGE BRUNO SANTOS WAS AWARDED WITH "TUBE OF THE YEAR " BY FLUIR MAGAZINE.
THAT CLIP IT IS PART OF THE FILM "SEASON 2 "PRODUCED BY MY FRIEND PAULO TRACCO WITCH WAS ALSO AWARDED "BEST FILM OF THE YEAR " .
SURF VIDEOS ARE FUN TO WATCH , BUT IT TAKES A LOT OF HARD WORK TO MAKE IT.
THAT'S WHY I GAVE UP THE EDITING PART OF IT.
BUT I STILL ENJOY CAPTURING THE IMAGES.
AND IT IS A GREAT PLEASURE WHEN THOSE THINGS HAPPENS.
THIS IS THE LINK FOR THE TRAILER OF SEASON 2

SANTOS' TUBE IS ALSO PART OF A SEGMENT THAT I EDITED WITH SOME OF THE BEST FOOTAGE THAT I CAPTURED DURING THAT TRIP FEEL FREE TO WATCH...
