Brandon Porter of Whitehouse Post cuts “Ghost Wave,” HP’s latest short film starring extreme surfer Ian Walsh via 180LA. Captured by famed surf cinematographer and director Taylor Steele, the short follows Walsh and his crew as they scour the globe in search of an unknown surf break.
The crew eventually lands in a remote fishing village on the Pacific coast of South Africa. Armed with the powerful HP Pavilion x360 for monitoring winds, swells, and tides, Walsh and his team quickly determine it to be the ideal location to scout for waves and immediately get to work chasing the elusive “Ghost Wave.”
Porter’s deft cuts allow us to experience the adventure and thrill as the crew scrambles to catch the swell. “It was great to team up with 180LA again for this project,” says Porter. “Ian is an incredible athlete and Taylor is a fantastic director. Watching Ian drop into waves of that size without hesitation was a mind blowing experience. It was exciting to showcase his skills as a surfer and adventurer, as well as the efficiencies technology brings to finding waves like these.”
