Ryan Hipwood & Some Very Heavy Duty Surfing
A rather fantastic video clip
Hipwood's a good surname because it inevitably results in the nickname Hippo, which let's be honest is a pretty solid nickname. Ryan Hipwood's a pretty solid bloke; heavy duty some might say. Turns out he's sponsored by a power tools company, which is a bit random also somehow appropriate. Milwaukee Tools -- "nothing but HEAVY DUTY". It sounds like an alright gig, and has resulted in this rather alright video clip. Rather fantastic, in fact -- the wave at 3:12 is an example of heavy duty tube-riding at its very finest.
