Influences: Tom Curren


Tommy Curren has been my biggest surfing influence since the first time I ever watched him surf. I remember being really young and just thinking he was this super elusive, almost mythical person, who popped up randomly when the waves were amazing and surfed them to perfection. Tom’s style has this unique blend of silky style, yet raw power, that is the epitome of surfing to me. When i watch Tom surf I feel like he is really expressing himself through his surfing and that’s what I love most about it. He makes it look like a true art-form. My favorite footage of Tom is at Jeffrey’s Bay during the filming for “Searching For Tom Curren.” This video only has one wave of this session in it, but it certainly gets the point across:) RIP Sonny Miller and thank you for capturing this incredible surfing.
