There are many surf videos out there but few can inspire such awe and respect for the ocean like Mickey’s. For those who have fallen in love with surf porn, this is like ocean porn; these are real surf videos that capture a side of surfing that is rarely seen. The environments Mickey puts himself in to get pitted are much more violent and more powerful than your average shore break. Heavy slabs of water smash against skyscraper-like cliffs and one wonders how Mickey was even able to get himself down to the water. For some surfers out there, this is representative of what their surf life is actually like…its harsh. Of course that just makes it even more worth while. There’s something special about giving it all you got and while being at the mercy of nature. I think that’s what Mickey is implying, I mean he says it better than me so just see for yourself.
