Soundtracking the Sea with Hurley

Surfing isn’t just a sport, it’s a lifestyle -- one that is often associated with obscure slang terms, massive waves and chill, ethereal music. In fact, surf music is so distinct that it has become its own genre, embodying the calm -- or extreme intensity -- of the vast ocean. And what better way to tell the story of World Champion surfer, John John Florence, than through a series of short films, featuring a handful of ocean inspired tracks from Marmoset artists?

We teamed up with our friends at Instrument to help score Florence’s inspirational and honest story.  Narrated by Florence, the films follow his travels and competitions and highlight the struggles, joys and pressures that go into life as an elite surfer. One take away we got from the series, aside from the new music and incredible surfing vignettes, was Florence’s emphasis on enjoying the ride, no matter the outcome.

Whether you prefer land or sea, these tracks are sure to relax, recharge and inspire. Enjoy.
