Noah Beschen's new short "WAX" is the pre-surf hype you've been needing.
Noah and his edit team have done a great job here. Not only does WAX perfectly encapsulate what growing up on the North Shore of Oahu would be like, it throws a few hilarious skits into the mix.
It's easy to see from this clip why there is so much young talent exploding out of Hawaii. Some of the heaviest waves in the world are just a playground for these groms. It's comparable to high altitude training in the sense that these kids are raised and trained to have the extreme as their norm. John John is a prime example and Noah is another.
