SURFING’s Lost Sections Dept: Ricardo Wendhausen

The reality of Taylor Steele’s Innersection is that most segments won’t make the movie; the latest round alone saw 54 entries. SURFING would like to pay our respects to some of our favorite, under-appreciated entries that you can no longer see on Innersection. These surfers are just supporting actors now, but by next year, any one could have a leading role.

Is it a strange strategy when a surfer lands about 50% of the maneuvers in his section? I mean, it’s video, right? Wouldn’t you just…well, nevermind. Ricardo Wendhausen kinda makes it work in this section. He’s obviously insanely talented. Possibly mentally insane, as well, but in the good Christian Fletcher v. Joe Crimo v. Josh Sleigh-insane sorta way. Right? It occurs to us we know way too little about Mr. Wendhausen. Do we have to wait for him to land that kickflip before we find out. Maybe. Is Volcom still holding his money? Maybe not. Somebody get director Bruno Bez and Ricardo on the phone to ‘splain what’s exactly going on here. We like it, even if we don’t understand it.
