Groovy Mexico movie staring Tonino Benson. Right points, tail drifts, and barrels.
First met Tonino Benson four years ago when he came down to Tavarua with Heath Walker (marketing director of Reef). After watching Tonino absolutely destroy epic Cloudbreak everyday for a week, couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of him before. His style, power, and progressive approach is radical.
Was driving boats with Shane Dorian, and working with the Tavarua manager Kaeo, during that trip. Shane, Kaeo, and Tonino are all from Hawaii’s Big Island. It was awesome to push each other into big, heavy barrels, and hang with the Big Island boyz.
Posted this video because Tonino has great surfing style, and is such a classic character.
