Surfing under “Black Rain”
What is the color of the rain? Is it grey, black, or transparent?
The truth is that there is no truth. Rain invites us to feel it, not overanalyze it. Ask a surfer how it feels to get barreled when it’s raining.
He or she will probably tell you it’s an unforgettable experience, only comparable to traveling inside a perfect and blue Pipeline cylinder.
Someone once said that the opposites attract. That could be poetry; that could be life. The black, and the blue. Both beautiful, and both intense.
The new short film by Andrew Gough and Harrison Roach unveils one of surfing’s many guilty pleasures, and nobody can deny it. Here comes the rain. Let it fill your soul.
