As you may have heard, Logan Dulien, the mastermind behind the Snapt legacy of surf films, has thrown out a very clever offer: Submit a clip and the winner gets a cameo in the upcoming Snapt4. Or something like that. Well, a couple of clips have been surfacing of late but we especially liked this…

Uncle Buttons had it on lock beginning way back in the late ’70s – albeit the slip-slide version…

Watch: “Unchartered” A Film by Freddie Browne

This well-made edit dropped into our inbox this week and we had a look.

Eoin probably isn’t going to win a QS…
