Cy Kuckenbaker is an artist who loves to play with space and time in his videos. For his latest work, he's turned to the sport of surfing, since he was fascinated by how slow everything can look in person, but how much is done within an hour once sped up on film.

Cy Kuckenbaker has put together a timelapse video of a man surfing for one hour, condensing the waves into an endless stream of water coming in. Most of the time surfers have to wait for that perfect wave, but with this video the audience is constantly treated to endless entertainment. Kuckenbaker manages to make everything in the video so seamless that one forgets the footage was manipulated for our viewing pleasure.
