I recently started testing out SOLOSHOT. And I’m pretty stoked on it! First I’ll say that it isn’t meant to replace videographers, but to be used as a 2nd angle, or to be used by anyone that doesn’t pay for people to film themselves. It’s simple enough for beginners, but works well enough for the pros.
I’ve been using it on those days that aren’t suppose to be anything special, so I wouldn’t have had a filmer with me regardless. Around here the forecasts change so much, there are many days that aren’t suppose to be that good, but then end up firing, and I’m bumming no ones here to shoot. SOLOSHOT can now keep those days from going undocumented.
It’s also great for those fun days that aren’t as I’d say “Clip Worthy”, but you’d still like to see footage of yourself. The best way to progress is to watch video of yourself, so you can see what you are doing wrong. So, you can set up SOLOSHOT, film/surf, then head home to review the footage and see where you can improve. It’s a really great tool…
So, if you are interested in finding out more about how it works, head over to http://soloshot.com/ and check it out!
I’ll definitely be putting out more videos through the summer (depending on waves) thanks to this little guy…
Spring set in…. Which means a lot of fun waves, but less epic days like when Cory Lopez and Colt Ward came for this early March swell.
Spring fires too though… just not yet.
When Siri’s over-thinking computer mind goes haywire.
Starting up a new feature on here… trying to figure out ways to keep me motivated to post. Life with an awesome child keeps you busy! Sorry for the lack of content the past 6months, but thanks to those of you who keep coming back anyway.
Jacob Vanderwork put out an edit of me from this fall called “Island of Change”, then an edit of B-Clips for SUPERbrand Surfboards called “Aftermath”.
I was going through my hard drive on a flat day in Hawaii, and realized there were a couple clips we completely forgot about that I had wanted to use. So I threw them together with other clips that never made the cut, for a final edit of my Fall in 2012.
I know I’m kind of beating a dead horse here, but I hate letting any clips go to waste. Enjoi
Things that my iPhone saw in 2012…
I have an air in the Punt of the Year November finals… Granted John and Medina have the 2 best airs, and it’s looking like John is gonna win. But I’m stoked to have one in there, so go check it out if you get the chance.
Matt Lusk was down shooting photos during one of the days the lighthouse was fun last week. He put together a little post on what a typical day in my life is like. Go check them out on his site.
Sanuk sent Alek Parker, Philip Goold, and Myself to Iceland back in February to test out their new winter boots. Suffice to say, they faired well in the frigid temperatures. Below is a video recap of the trip… and some photos from the article ESM ran on it.
I’m sorry that I’m not sorry for posting a video that…
…adds to the Central America Summer video club.
…has so many air reverses.
…is mostly lefts.
…and doesn’t have one barrel.
BUT hopefully you enjoy…
I AM sorry for not uploading anything in months, and posting hardly any content on here. There shouldn’t be a lack of edits this fall though, so stay tuned.
Check Back Tomorrow for a New Video from Central America. I finally have some content for your viewing pleasure.
I was fortunate enough to work with Benik last fall on my part in the movie Innersection. He has come a long way in the past year or so. Here is a recap of some projects he worked on over the last year.
Here is a little highlight video from one of the Dawn Patrol sessions we had in Scotland last year… Super sick right, but super shallow too. (i’m the goofyfoot in the Yellow suit)
And below is the long version of the contest video. Pretty epic edit. The extended version of the session above starts at the 6:55 mark.
sorry for the lack of posts… hopefully this video makes up for it.
My dad found a baby Owl in his shop…. It didn’t want to leave.
Oh, and Sammy is my dog……
