Remi Gaillard

One of the great surfers of our era Remi Gaillard is the Frenchman with a little more to give. With over 15,000,000 views on some of his more popular videos it’s likely you’ve seen him before, but not quite like this. I for one am at a loss as to how you can develop such grace on a board of any kind, let alone such a heavy looking retro board. Take a look as he picks his moment to glide across the face of even the least likely righty.

This is one of many works by the don of pranks and happens one of the less funny videos he’s posted on Youtube. I just had to open with this one. Naturally.

He’s better known for wreaking havoc among the public with drink-stealing meat-punching antics in his “Rocky” parodies and if you’re still not sure you recognise the name then it will probably come as a surprise to you that he is one of the men behind the “Put it where you want it” viral. That’s right: not only is he full of guts, a master of timing and one of the hottest things to come out of the surf scene since the ironing board, he’s also pin-point with a football. Behold pure genius.
