Los Zapatos' Puerto Rican Heroics
Surfing excellence, sci-fi radness and narrative aplomb in this fine entry into the 2015 REDirect Surf contest
Ever wonder if all this technology really constitutes a step in the right direction for the human race? The mobile phones we can scarcely take our eyes off, the tablets, the mindless television, the equally mindless surf websites, the golfboards, the amphibious motor cross bikes, the RED cameras? Dylan Graves has a plan, and it requires the use of the very technology he wishes to destroy; it also requires the near-flawless execution of high-performance surfing, and the assistance of Alejandro Moreda, Balaram Stack, Mauro Diaz and Carlos Cabrrero. Together, they are known as los Zapatos -- which means "the Shoes" in Spanish. Confuddled? Intrigued? Press play, and watch David Malcolm's submission into the 2015 REDirect Surf Film contest.
