Taylor Steele came up with this idea to hold a contest for surf film makers and surfers alike to get a spot in his next film Innersection. I will be a collection of shorts from the contest. Makes you want to know some pro surfers. Click on the link to get more info and see the contestants entries.
Danny Hess has been making some pretty amazing boards here is a Trailer for Carving. It is pretty fun to watch.
So after a fire by the water, and a day of bar hopping through Newport and Bristol the drive back to the house showed some colors that make time in the car so much better.
After the completion of my shift at work I will be headed back down to Vacationland, not the Maine Vacationland, the Rhode Island one. There will be some fun, there will be some beer, and the rest, well that is undecided.
You ever find yourself looking at something that you have seen a million times before like it is something brand new and exciting?
It''s a great feeling.
So watched a post by Korduroy.tv. Then decided to look for the finished product by Ripcurl. The first link will bring you to the commercial. The second will bring you to the making of. Would have embedded them here but can't post the full video size and I didn't want to take away from the awesomeness.
The only water my single fin log saw over the past three days was dumping the out of the fin slot of my board bag over the front lawn. It was a windy grey trip down to my new vacation-land, also known as Mimi's house. The first night entailed brainstorming on an upcoming paddle project up the East Coast of the Untied States over some Dewer's on the rocks. With the first night of ideas down the second day got more productive. With some traveling for some photos, and a little paddle session in some 30 mile and hour winds the night starting to get buzzing with energy.
As dinner started on the stove top a call was made to the other coast, The conversation between the two on the East and the one on the West only sparked the energy even higher. With a toast of red wine and a delicious dinner the energy lasted all the way to the covers.
Stayed tuned to see further developments on this project...
Here is my first finished handplane. It is awkward shape but should work just fine. I'll let you know how the test run goes.
