A Study in Single

singlefin: yellow

Singlefin: Yellow is shot entirely on 16mm, which of course makes it beautiful. This is a story about not only exotic travel and the adventure of riding waves, but also a reminder to all that happiness in life can be found in something as simple as sharing with your friends. It had a very similar set up to Ala Moana bowls. It's one of those films I've watched once and may watch again in a few years. One thing I really notice is how spot-on your technique needs to be, which leads to creating beautiful body positioning, which leads to beautiful images. But back to that wave, I got in early and set my line, and the section was lining up perfectly.

I am glad that there is as much surfing in there as there is otherwise it would have been a give away. To me they are both equally impressive. He was very direct and to the point. With a thruster, I find myself moving around inside the tube more with little pumps, using the transitions inside the tube to generate more speed and to flirt with the foam ball. It's a masterpiece simply unparalleled in surf film lore. Capturing visuals for top brands and creating short form branded content documentary work. At some point it gets a bit maudlin to hear all the soulful talk.

Would you have had the same experience on a regular thruster? A deep A-frame peak that would rarely connect through the inside and then a wide, bowly peak that would only break on the biggest sets. Singlefin has nothing cliche about it and Baffa astutely selected some of the most alternative and progressive west coast artists to set the score for his musical backdrop. A beautifully shot soul trip for the more traditional-style fans. When we pulled up to check the surf, there were a few different peaks working. Singlefin is truly a surfing tale that can be watched again and again. If you're both a longboarder and shortboarder as I am you can appreciate Surftech technology and bumpy wax beads on a longboard. Your body positioning has to be very precise to ride these boards correctly and to get the most out of them.

Check out the director's commentary, too, as Baffa makes multiple viewings well worth your while with insightful details surrounding the challenges to making the film. In the commercial world, his eye for soulful lifestyle imagery goes beyond the waves. You can get into waves so early and draw such a different line than a standard thruster. From there we go Stateside, to Daize Shayne in Hawaii, Devon Howard in California and Mexico, and then back to Waikiki and Pipeline, where the board gets thrashed by Bonga Perkins. Overall Singlefin: Yellow is definitely worth a watch.

I think every grom nowadays should have to spend some time on a single-fin. . Single-fins will never go away. Their boards were so thick, they got into waves super early and drew such a different line. The dimensions were taken from a board that his father had shaped and it speaks of earlier generations, and a time when surfing was more about the journey and friendships than sponsorship and contests.

I rode that board for months and months. The one thing about riding a big single fin like that is controlling your speed, because once you set your line those boards go really fast. It's a psuedo documentary, but the special features with story boards and additional comments shows this was planned all along. Much of the surfing footage is okay, but the story line is just that, a story line. If you love surfing, get this film. I have so many boards and want to have the option to ride any of them at any given time. These boards stretch your surfing out and force you to use more of the rail.

SINGLEFIN YELLOW Official Trailer

singlefin: yellow

Filmmaker Jason Baffa has some great things to say about the making of the film, surf film art in general, and trivia tidbits about the surfers and locations. If you love good filmmaking, get this film. The idea is fresh and original-a good thing in a market saturated with copycat punk rock music montages. Is this just more of a retro-fad? It is a longboard film, but applies to all surfers and non-surfers. Over the course of the film the board heads to Australia, Hawaii, and Japan to name a few destinations. There is no cranking it off the bottom and going up vertical into the lip.
