In a move that may surprise many, Brisbane surf star, Daniel Smith, has developed a new wave video format called ‘sandwich’ in the past few months.
Daniel’s ‘sandwiches’ video are made from a mix of local surfers and local surf footage, and feature surfers filming themselves doing things like taking selfies or filming themselves at a beach.
Daniel told News24 that it is a great format to showcase Queensland surf culture.
“The idea is to get Queensland surfers out to surf and do stuff, and get them to come and surf in Queensland,” Daniel said.
“We want Queensland surf to be a part of Queensland culture and we want Queenslanders to come to Queensland and have a great time.”
Daniel’s videos are being produced in collaboration with local surf photographer, Tom Henson, who is a regular on his blog and social media accounts.
“It’s just a way for me to showcase the people that are doing amazing stuff in Brisbane,” Daniel explained.
Daniel and Tom’s video has been shared more than 600 times, and Daniel says it is being viewed on Facebook more than 50,000 times per day. “
The video format itself is something I’ve never done before and it’s kind of a new way of doing things for Queensland surf and Queensland surfing.”
Daniel and Tom’s video has been shared more than 600 times, and Daniel says it is being viewed on Facebook more than 50,000 times per day.
While Daniel is currently filming at The Lighthouse Surf Club, his new ‘sandwits’ video is already gaining more views than any other surf video ever filmed in Queensland.
“This is the first time that I’ve seen a video like that, and I think that’s fantastic,” Daniel told News23.
“It shows Queenslanders that we are a real surf town and we do do a lot of amazing stuff here.”
A lot of Queenslanders know a lot about Queensland surf but they don’t know that we do surf and we love surf.
