West Aussie Kael Walsh Has Officially Arrived With This Monster of an Edit

COASTALWATCH | BEST OF THE WEB

There’s a smooth stomped backflip here... and it wouldn't even be in the top 20 most impressive clips in this video.

With Soft Serve, 20-year-old West Australian Kael Walsh has dropped perhaps the best surf edit of the year so far and announced his arrival as one of the world's premier freesurfers in the Dane Reynolds, Noa Deane, Mikey Wright mould.

Over 12 minutes, the vid features four significant West Aus swells and two trips to Indo, with cameos from Taj Burrow, Jay Davies, Mikey Wright, and Joel Paxton. Wade Carroll, who you might know as the guy behind Mikey Wright's best clips (Root, Rage) kills it behind the lens and on the edit, with some help from an A-grade soundtrack (Breeders, Mudhoney, UMO, the Cure) and some significantly pumping West Australian tubes. But, of course, it's Kael's surfing that makes the impact. Awesome tubes, big airs, powerful turns – surfed with the sort of full throttle West Aussie demeanour that makes you accidentally swear under your breath as you watch. It's unreal.
