It would be hard to hand-pick more beautiful barrels than the ones featured in this video. Teiki Ballian introduces this episode with the boards he brings on a surf tip to the Maldives – everything from an alaia to a Mini-Simmons, fast-cruising to self-shaped twinnies. Teiki loves surfing to be regular and spontaneous and in this episode we see how different waves beg to be surfed in different ways. Fast left handers only surfed by a select handful need quick reactions and fine tuned boards but sometimes even the quick-witted and perfectly crafted boards are still not good enough. Notice how many people are in the line up, but Matt and Liquid Destination can still find the quiet zones. Teiki, William and Smith are introduced to the local bird life from the local women in a quiet Maldivian town while filmmaker McClean is kept occupied during lulls by stalking resident hermit crabs. This is one beautiful edit. Fast Left-Handers & Endless Barrels In The Maldives | Islands in the Stream, Ep. 3

Surfing is all about opportunity and surfers are some of the lucky few who spend their lives chasing opportunity around the world. Islands in the Stream follows three different surfers on their evanescent quest through the Maldives: William Aliotti fresh from winning the Nixon Surf Challenge in Russia, Teike Bailian a underground ripper jumping ship from Indonesia, and Matt Smith a roaming Cornishman who has spent the last few months sowing seeds on the farm, ready for his return to the tropics. They're looking for opportunities, looking for waves, In what the guidebooks would lead us to believe is paradise.
