What's with the music on self-produced surf videos...???
This thread was inspired by DPSUP who got me excited to watch THICKER THAN WATER... and although I'm not a (big) fan of Jack Johnson, ANYTHING is better than the music that accompanies MOST self-produced surf movies... be that speed metal (often used when the waves are tiny what??) , or reggae (which I like--its just that its never good reggae on surf vids), or the wonderful music of "dude check out my friends band!!"... Usually I just click the sound off and turn up whatever british invasion / Thin Lizzy /Coltrane record I happen to have going on at the time. So basically if you want to make a killer video and you're under 30...don't use music off of your IPOD...steal some of your stoner uncle's music. The rest of the surfing world will thank you:)
but for the record i hate rap too
