Surfing Time Collapsed

This time collapsed video was created from one hour of source footage shot in San Diego, to see how patterns from surfing interact.    Watch the video…

The video created by Cy Kuckenbaker in San Diego, the morning of Jan 21, 2014.

“I was interested in exploring the manipulation of water and to see how the movements and patterns from surfing interact. Watching surfing typically happens in one or two ways: in films/videos or in person standing on a pier, beach or bluff. In most surf films, the riders are so talented and the waves are so good it becomes an abstraction from the average viewer’s/surfer’s experience at an average break. On the other hand, watching in person can be very slow and depending on the swell there may be long stretches when nothing happens at all.”
