Derek Hynd - finless forward motion


As readership increases (a new record yesterday)
and correspondence explodes
so many posts are polished emails
from friends

Here is a bit of video that needs no polish


Such great footage!
I see a lot of similarity between how Mr. Hynd rides his finless boards and the lines we draw with our mats.

What do you do with all that speed?

"nothing equals the flat chat speed of a mat"

Expect a related interview soon!

Mat? Finless boards? That's what loving the ocean is all about. Why people think it's only about standing there is beyond me.

Loverly!! Awesome footage of a pioneer, stellar is not an overstatement of his motivations.

Warren - Mr Hynd is a very observant fellow

Surfsister - Great! Another gem on Liquid Salt?

Gaz - I have a kite string for an internet connection and I still can't stop watching and listening to the clip. Glad you liked it

And folks lets not forget the music - composer/finless surfer Richard Tognetti playing live at this years' Noosa Festival. The Youtub piracy doesn't do it justice.
