Wetty brand O'Neill have today announced the re-signing of the hard charging Russell Bierke, with the release of this beautiful Andrew Kaineder clip. 

Bierkey, pride of the NSW South Coast and one of Australia's premier big wave surfers, has had a longstanding relationship with O'Neill. And the partnership between the two feels pretty spot-on, at least the cinematic dawn-heavy edit certainly makes it feel that way.

Here's how O'Neill describe Bierkey's development over the years with them:

"There was a drive and a quiet determination that shined through whenever the swell lifted. Early slab and outer reefs sessions with the hard core local crew, and a dad that shaped and had a healthy knowledge of big boards and big surf, all added to Russ’s progress. Hidden away in a country location, to then burst onto the scene at 18 years of age and capture a win in possibly one of the heaviest competitions ever to run. The Red Bull Cape Fear."

And in a tough year where surf brands across the board have been cutting surf teams down, Biekey is no doubt pretty pleased to keep it going with his longterm sponsor.

Also, how good's this shot of grommy Russell Bierke about to paddle out into some bombs with Paul Morgan? Classic!
