Alex Knost // Lower Trestles // 1:30

posted by / Video / August 8, 2012

Gage describes his Lowers session with Alex:

Was up at Lowers and happen to see Alex surfing and I figured I would shoot a few clips of him surfing. I ended up making an edit out of it and hear it is. I wanted to do something really weird so I added some 16mm painted film effect to the whole thing. Some will like it but some will not like it at all. I hope you are the one who will enjoy it!

    Jeez talk about an over-edit. Unwatchable. Too bad cause the surfing looked somewhat interesting

  • matt

    How is this guy a professional surfer? it’s like he has an intended style in mind, but he’s just not doing it! This guy is a lowlife druggy. Not a professional athlete. This edit makes it unwatchable and something completely different! Leave Alex Knost out of the headlines. He’s insignificant and weak on a surfboard. The homeless look only works for Dane Reynolds. Who rips. Ever hear of him?

  • zach

    this is awesome you never see this at lowers refreshing

  • Cavey

    I am sick of these BS low fi edits. If the surfing doesn’t capture your attention without some lame filter over it, its not worth editing at all. As far as Al’s surfing goes, he sells t-shirts and an image well, his surfing ability not so well.

  • yep

    A lowlife druggy ? Do hallucinogens count ?

  • Beard

    I am the one who enjoyed it. Nice work Gage. Positive/Negative feedback is irrelevant. Enjoy it all with a grain of salt. Laugh at hate, but don’t trust praise, just create what you have in mind and move on.

  • aaron

    you guys are fags haha

  • Mike Anderson

    Glad it was short and even more glad I don’t have to surf in shit like that or on shit like that…

  • Kingsley

    Art is risk…

  • David

    Waiste of waves and your time editing it and my time watching it and my time typing this – wait…why am I typing this???

  • Kaipo Gomes

    Wow if that wasn’t lowering the bar then what is? Thought he was waaaaaaay better than that video proved. He is a hood ornament poseur of the highest order. He is sponsored and Hank Gaskell is not?! He never really did a “real” turn in that video. Keep in mind comments editor, Jason, this should be an open dialogue. Knost blows and that video proved it.

  • Marchus

    @kingsley you are even lamer than this video…

    My name is alex knost and i run ppl over at lowers doing butt squats and wiggles. I am super H!

    who the hell rides a keel at lowers anyway, they are for going straight really fast the last time i checked

  • Kareemabduljabbar

    Al surfs for fun and it shows. Cool edit. Thanks. Donkeys that hate are just that.

  • Scumbag steve

    Seen this dude do airs, reverses, fin throws etc on normal thrusters years ago… I’m certain not one of you could surf your thrusters as well as he could.

    That said, maybe it’s a bummer to feel like you can’t even go surf for fun without somebody on the beach filming a few of your waves then trying to throw together some edit and post it on the net for people like you dweebs to arm chair quarterback.

    You haters are sad sacks…

  • Adam

    Scumbag: I’ve hear those same stories, but never seen it. If he can really do that stuff he should put together a short vid just to shut everyone up once and for all. Until then, people are gonna continue commenting about him like they did above.

  • Kevin

    Horrible Surfing. Horrible Vid. Why was this even on this site?
    Can we just have someone upload these types of disasters to hipstersurfing.com to post this kind of junk.

  • Trevor

    The background edit actually made me nauseated. Like a car sick feeling

  • joe

    video was awful. surfing was awful.

  • rogermeras

    we get it, he rides crap boards that are hard to surf

  • Matt

    Knost has talent but this vid does not exemplify it.

  • Billy

    Sick video and cool edit, reminds me of Barrett-era Pink Floyd.

    Too bad about all the kooks getting jealous in the comments section. Some sheeple just can’t handle it when someone strays from the flock to do their own thing and have fun.

    You guys need to learn to appreciate the history and culture of surfing. It’s not all about being all serious, riding white 2+1s, doing air reverses and getting angry.
