It is hardly an exaggeration to say that Lachie “Peanut” McKinnon (known digitally as @misterclips) has been in the surf industry since he was in nappies.
The son of an ASP exec, Lachie grew up running around Tour events and doing odd-jobs for the production team—not the least of which was Australian surf cinematography archduke Jack McCoy—since the age of six.
Lachie’s as true a fan of surfing as they come, and in his 30-odd years on his planet, he would have spent at least four of them kicking against that horrendous Snapper current, never missing a goddamn clip despite the chaos. So when Lachie says that, “This is probably the best wave I’ve ever filmed behind the rock,” you listen.
Actually, no. You watch.
