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
