You’ve never seen surfing like this before.

Surfing makes for the perfect spectator sport; it’s fluid and it’s natural, which makes it look effortless. But this film, shot by Chris Bryan at 1,000 feet per second (fps) with high speed Phantom Flex cameras, shows every ripple in every wave and every bit of uncertainty in the surfers’ faces. Look closely, and you’ll see that even Kelly Slater has a moment of doubt from time to time. Doesn’t look so easy now, does it?
