Craig Anderson is promoting a new film made by his pal Dane Reynolds. It’s called Slow Dance. Here he’s talking about the sticks he rides, made by his shaper Hayden Cox.
We’re most intrigued by Craig Anderson because he has one of the greatest surfing styles we’ve seen in years. It’s only our humble opinion, of course, but watch the guy get barrelled on his backhand, check his forehand bottom turn and study his loose, lackadaisical air technique and you might see what we mean.
Being best pals with Dane, his conversational style, at least on film, comes across as mildly disinterested, and he doesn’t offer much to spark the intellectual neurons in this piece. But hearing him talk about his boards affords a good opportunity to witness some of that intriguing surfing, at least until we get a chance to see Slow Dance itself.
Are we wide of the mark or has this guy got some special bendy-body bond with surfboards and breaking waves?
