The 10 Best Surf Clips From the Month of August

Oversized Teahupo'o and Skeleton Bay set the stage for last month's best performances

When compiling last month’s best surf clips, we weren’t surprised to find a boat-load of near-perfect rides go down at Teahupo’o and Skeleton Bay. It is, after all, that time of year, when both Namibia and End of the Road (and the surfers who flock to them) go absolutely berserk. In this iteration of “Clips of the Month”, both grinding lefthanders set the stage for August’s best tube-riding performances, including those by Ariihoe Tefaafana, Koa Rothman, Nathan Florence, Benji Brand, Koa Smith and more.

While some of the world’s best tube-hounds stole the show this month, a few made their mark getting technical above the lip, including Hawaiian wunderkind Seth Moniz and Red Bull Airborne series director Josh Kerr.Press play above to watch the top-10 countdown and take a few minutes to watch each ride and/or edit below in their entirety.
