Brett Barley // North Carolina // 2:05

‘Tis the season to be jolly on the Eastern Seaboard. With the abusively hot summer and the throngs of people that come along with it in the books, East Coasters have finally been given a chance to take a deep breath. And, for Brett Barley, a chance to become independent. One fine day on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, Brett set up his Soloshot at Avon Pier and went surfing. The waves were a fun-lover’s idea of perfection. While Brett clicked a bouquet of airs, his camera sat unmanned on the beach recording his every move. He took the footage, trimmed it down to only the cream and cut the clips to a Bad Religion song. You wouldn’t think Brett could find a way to top that air at 1:50, but does he ever! So grab a piping cup of pumpkin rooibos tea or an icy glass of pumpkin ale (depending on the time of day), and enjoy a sip of fall on the East Coast — regardless of what your calendar and its Autumnal Equinox think.
