With the pandemic grinding world travel to a halt for many, home has been thrust into the spotlight – wherever you call yours. The sharpest blades were relegated to the countries that raised them, cutting up local waves with the same fervour and grace as they would Pipeline or Chopes. In places where surfing was off limits – whether due to distance or the law – connecting online was a way to peer into the sessions happening around the world. Spots normally blown out with tourists were blissfully quiet, while local lineups bulged to the size of small festivals complete with jet skis and all manner of documentarians. In fact, every bodyboarder and his dog is now a fully-fledged vlogger – and we’re not too sure how we feel about that.
