URSULA: New York Tarp Surfing

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt

Like the initial impetus of skateboarding, tarp surfing was born out of the desire to replicate the feeling of cruising on waves when there were none to be found. More specifically, tarp surfing is the landlocked reproduction of the feeling one has when sliding through a tube section in hollow surf. Although it’s fair to say nothing can bring about the feelings one has when getting barreled besides the exact experience itself, this looks like a whole lot of fun!

This short film and gallery were shot by Lee Morgan, a New York based photographer and filmmaker. His unique take on tarp surfing in a studio setting in Brooklyn, NY, invokes its own unique sensation and visual magnificence.

Feast your eyes on the tasty visuals, both moving and still.
