Fun Boots! lives on

Afternoon, people.

Well the movie has been in a sleepy little daze lately but apparently people still watch it from time to time and that makes us feel good. Some of the incredible wakeskaters that can be seen in Fun Boots! will be up for grabs in the 2009 Wake Awards for Best Video Part. Congrats fellas, may the best man win!

Also, keep a keen eye on for soome upcoming "Fun Boots!" edition videos, including Case#1 of the Fun Boots! files.

Well KL and I and my new friend Jonna just had a great time down on the old filming locale and Scene One's favorite vacation spot, Anna Maria Island. It's pretty clear by now that the only reason Nick, Stu, Trav and anyone else from the 941 is even in the video is just because we like their hometown so much... ok that's a lie, it's cuz they are so amazing at wakeskating. but it works out nice.

anyway Jonna was nice enough to let us stay at her house and drive her electric smart car all over the island like true tourists. the GEM for life - we're really going green. so why would anybody care about this? probably no reason, but thanks to fun boots! we were able to make another excuse to celebrate.

Go listen to "One More Time" by Daft Punk, really puts things in perspective.

Keith and I had a great time at the first stop of the Toe Jam this year at OWC. What a wild ride that whole setup looked like, congrats to anyone who survived. Lant and I were pretty stoked on everything those two days, nothing could get us down. We even got the rare opportunity to shake hands and pass a copy of Fun Boots! to Corey Duffel, who was posted up at OWC watching the event and was the nicest guy you could hope to meet. Let's hope he makes it past the intro.

If you live in the 941 area tomorrow you may see two college-aged students from orlando with jewfros, pink sunglasses, and matching fun boots! tank tops in a champagne colored convertible blaring Eddie Money in your neighborhood sometime (check the Skinny's bar).

There's a contest going on for a free copy of fun boots! at, we really need you guys to enter so we can give away these copies. What else would stoke people up to buy the video? We're thinkin maybe a dunk tank or miniature pony rides.

whats new!

what a time it has been lately, i have so much i want to share with everyone, even though i'm pretty sure no one reads this anymore...

I just got back from an amazing video premier for a film called BOX OF FUN. Collin Harrington did an awesome job on the editing, filming, music, and whole good times vibe the film carried consistently the whole way through. I don't even wakeboard and I enjoyed every second of it.

And last night was a good time by all at the outside premier of Billabong's video, Out of the Pond. This had a little bit of wakeskating in it from Mr. Grubb and then lots more wakeboarding, but it was cool and there was a lot of things in the film i had never seen before, like the snow jump, the c-rail at the system 2 cable, and some other interesting and creative forms of board riding. lots of winching, lots and lots of wakeboard winching. and a 1260, yes it was there. The film seemed very professional and expensive, which is what you would expect from a company that could afford to do it, but I really think i liked watching Box of Fun more. Maybe i could just relate to it better.

PLUS back on the 20th of this month I went to the premier of 420 Films' "I'm Just Skiing." This flick had much more wakeSKATING which was rad, but not to worry strappers, Vinny Knapp was loud and proud in his boots doing flips down huge drops...wild man. he was also kickflipping gaps on a wakeskate, how crazy is that? Then theres that guy Nick Dauzat, well he shredded pretty hard and does crazy grind combos on a-frame rails and also isn't afraid of anything. Our boy Justin FoRRest proved his monday cover worthiness with the documented hardflip down the salty fresh gap...yeah buddy. There were all kinds of highlights from this night, such as Savi Fernandez and his band of irie spirited fellows keeping the vibes pretty heady and the magic man James McGuigan sporting a classy looking stache. I didn't know he had it in him. Great shredding too by the way, james.

I like all those video premier parties cuz I know how great the people that make them are feeling. It's a big project to get completely done with, and not an easy task to push through. congrats to all the filmmakers on their accomplishments.

laptop is on the hiatus so i cant share some great pictures i have right now, but you'll know it when its back.

thanks for listening

the One

Gear Guide 2009: check out the special features!

so there you have it! i like this because the high number of the 1260 automatically baffles people into an interest in their product. I also like how "The One" also works as a metaphor for danny harf (much respect). it's a very cultural/American/iconic/Jedi master style of wordplay.

photo contest/giveaway

I have been hearing rumors of people actually finally getting their hands on Fun Boots!, and it is music to my ears. The ironic thing is I haven't even seen what the final product looks like, all packaged up in a bright shiny dvd case with plastic wrapping it up tightly... my child. Anyway, they are now available in some shops and pretty soon will be all over. If your local shop doenst carry it then ask for it! they can order it through Sidewayz really easy, and even get a little deal if they order a dozen or more.

Head on over to AllianceWakeskate to check out the new photo contest going on where you can enter to win a free copy of Fun Boots! The rules are pretty simple: take a photo that you think represents and embodies Fun Boots! the best. Take any approach you want. Send the low res copies to But don't worry, Keith and I are doing the judging and we are excited to see what you creative wakeskate types will come up, so happy shooting! There will be one winner a week for the next 4 weeks.
