Surfing at 1,000 Frames Per Second

One minute it’s there, and the next, it’s gone. It’s the story for so many things in life but in this moment, it belongs to a sport that’s at the mercy of the wave. A new video shot by Chris Bryan on the Phantom Flex, Phantom Miro M-320S and the new Phantom 4K Flex with Arri Ultra prime lenses, shows just what happens as a sky-high swell crashes down and a skilled rider emerges.

The beauty of the video lies in the 1,000 frames per second shooting. Each frame passes by slowly, making you feel like, no matter where you are, the wave is just seconds away from engulfing you, the swell inches away from swallowing you whole. You don’t have to be there — or even on the board — to feel the thrill of the ride.

The clip features all-stars like Taj Burrow, Kelly Slater and John John Florence.
