Jase Finlay’s Weird Year

select_logoRegarded as one of the best free surf bodyboarders in the world, Jase Finlay has had a strange year in 2015.

Despite winning the Australian/pacific leg of the Free Surf Bodyboarding World Tour, and a solid showing at the Mystics Pro, Jase still found himself without a major board sponsor.

But with change comes opportunity and the South Coast shredder was soon picked up by the new JG Boards brand. Word is he has been destroying the bountiful wedges and reef breaks near his hometown ever since.

This clip, filmed by Tyge Landa and a bevvy of other South Coast lensmen, highlights just how talented Jase is on the boogie, standing up, and even at the editing desk.

Here is what he had to say about the clip:

This clip offers me a fresh start.

This year has been a weird one for me, but the best thing that has happened is my joining with the incredible Jarrod Gibson as part of his new brand JGBOARDS.COM. Bit of a dream come true for sure.

Another great thing is the support I have from friends. Friends like Tyge Landa who opened his door and computer, to have free reign on this edit. A true legend and I’m eternally thankful. 

I’ve never edited a clip before, so it ain’t as polished as it should be, but it’s got the right vibe. FUN!!

So here’s all my old footage on an old boogie and softtop, and cheers to an exciting future starting fresh.

Big thanks for all the footage from my good friends:
