Don’t get scared – the shouting is called a “hoot” and the thumb/pinky salute is called a “shaka” – and that was the theme for the 2012 San Diego Surf Film Festival, Hoots and Shakas.
Amy and I attended the festival and had a blast (you can see us at 0:37 in the video). We met all sorts of people, including the maker of this video Michael Emery (his company).
It was multiple days of stoke in the water (check out the seal waving to Michael) and in Bird’s Surf Shed watching surf films.
Enjoy the video – Steve
