Rasta - i surf because short film

Dave Rastovich has had the privilege of travelling the world as a professional freesurfer. In Rasta's travels he has been exposed to the worlds most breath taking wonders as well as the contrasting destructions that man has carried out. Driven by his personal beliefs and convictions Rasta is far more than just a surfer and devotes large portion of his time to combatting the ever growing issue of ocean pollution and the affects it has on it's inhabitants. Like the great Steve Erwin and as fruity as it sounds Rasta is somewhat of a wildlife warrior and will continue to fight for the protection of all marine life.

Brilliant. I'm forever trying to explain why I'm so tired but so energised after a surf but it's so hard to explain how it makes you feel. Not sure about e water though, you swallow enough anyway in a sesh. Great video.

You watch these pro surfers do these I surf or even Kelly Slater...man bottom line is they surf cause it makes them happy. They do it out of love...you find me other sports where guys will go play professionally then head back out for the soul...surfers do! And that is why is i surf...for the love of it, heals the soul and puts a smile on my face whenever i'm in the water!

It is a board styled on the ones the native Hawaiians used, just a plank of wood with a flat tail, rounded nose and no fin. Rasta is using a short one styled on traditional longboards of around 12 foot used by the natives. The Chiefs of tribes used sizes of up to 25ft as a show of their status.

Mark McRurie
Mark McRurie - 9 years ago
@billyblaze111 You probably have no idea who Rasta is. He gets paid less to surf than most surfers because he chose the path of a free surfer. He doesn't compete, he doesn't go out and win heats or get ranked, in fact I don't even think he's in the top 100. He is one of the rare few who surfs for a living... sure he does get paid to surf, but I can guarentee you he isn't living a life of riches like Kelly Slater... he probably just gets by comfortably.
Dora Lives!
Dora Lives! - 9 years ago
He surfs because he gets paid to. If he didn't get paid to this video would be called "I work because..." Don't buy the hype of this type of marketing ploy. Surf when you can but get a freeking job so you don't suck the life out of surfing by turning it into some corpo money making scheme like this guy.

This is nonsense if non surfers couldn't understand surfing then no one would take it up as a pastime. It's a stupid arrogant thing to say that one can't explain it.
ADDrific

Surfing is a drug. It's a stimulant, a rush that envelopes you but at the same time it's slowing you down, making you see and feel like nothing is real and time stands still. It's explaining the unexplainable without using words.
