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…
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.
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.
Check Back Tomorrow for a New Video from Central America. I finally have some content for your viewing pleasure.
I was wrong… yesterday wasn’t the last day to vote, TODAY is the last day to Vote for Innersections $100k winner! I’m in the Top 5 now… so if you can afford the $14.99 Premium Membership, I could use your VOTE! Thanks!
(check the post below for more info…)
Well, today is the last day to purchase a Premium Membership and Vote for who you think should win the $100,000. Head on over to http://www.innersection.tv/ now if you want to get in on the action before it is too late!
Let’s see if we can finish this thing off with a Bang! Haha Either way though, the Lord has done some incredible things lately, and I’m just stoked to be where I am. Thanks for all the support with Innersection since day one. It’s been Rad!
Also, I had a few people ask how to sign up for a membership online… The little Tutorial below should help if you were having trouble finding your way around the site.
3 Days left to go to http://www.innersection.tv/ and buy a premium membership for a download of Innersection Orange and Vote for the Winner of the $100k. You can still buy DVD’s in surf shops and use the given “Code” inside the case to Vote online as well. So if you still want to get a copy and cast your Vote, it isn’t too late.
Here are a couple Teaser frame grabs from my section…
I found out this morning that I am in the top 7 running for the $100,000 Innersection Prize. I figured I would help get the word out that there are only 11 Days left to Vote for the winner!
If you payed for a “premium membership” last year and haven’t logged onto the website and Voted yet, you can still do so now. At this point though, if you aren’t already a member, the only way to Vote is if you buy a copy of the DVD and create an account using the “code” inside the case. Any local surf shop should have some copies, but if not, there are plenty of online places to order the movie (usoutdoor.com
,spinnakerextreme.com). SpinnakerExtreme offers the cheapest online price, plus free 3-5day shipping… so if you wish to order a copy online, that seems to be the place.
Anyway, the Winner is going to be decided by the Voters… So if you wish to have a say in this, go and get your copy of Innersection Orange
as soon as possible and set up your account at http://innersection.tv/ And spread the word to anyone you may know who wants to get their hands on a copy of this movie, and cast their vote as well.
Also, I just noticed on their website that you can purchase premium memberships online again… For now, DO NOT DO THAT as I believe you will only be allowed to use that membership for the upcoming Rounds of 2012. If I find out information that you CAN purchase a Premium Membership online now and still use it to decide the 2011 Winner… I will let you know in an update later tonight or tomorrow.
Thanks for all the support since this started up for me back in August. I couldn’t be more stoked with how things have turned out!
Also, I’m sorry for not posting on here in a while… Lazy is probably the best term to describe why.
I lost in my heat this morning… but only by about 2seconds. That 2 seconds was my clear sign from the Lord that i wasn’t suppose to go any further. His timing is Perfect… never late, and never early, so i’m stoked! that wave i caught after the heat was pretty fun too. (photo below… video soon-ish)
also, having a heat out at Pipe can be pretty nerve racking, well for me anyway. but luckily i had some Josh Garrels tunes, and the Peace of God, to calm me down. the song below is the only thing i’ve listened to the past few days.
So the website is back up and running, DVD’s are heading to Stores, and you can purchase it on iTunes (although you wont be given a code to Vote due to issues with iTunes)… The new Innersection Movie is now available for purchase!
If you were already a premium member, you should have received an email like the one in the image below. If you do not see it in your inbox, it could be in your spam. It’s important that you find this email if you have already paid for Innersection via Premium Membership, otherwise you will have to pay again. So go set your account back up… and Please go Vote for me!

Just won the Summer Round of Innersection HA! i was hoping just to make the Top 10, and God came in and was like “Hey son, I have some bigger plans… you just wait and see.” haha so now i get to be in the final movie… which also means i have a LOT of work to do in the next 3months to make my section better.
Thanks so much for the help and support everyone… That’s what the video below is for, you guys.
i made it into the Top 10 for Innersection… Now it is up to the Public (anyone who makes a Free account) to vote for the Top 5 Finalists.
So if you have some time… go sign up and arrange your Top 10 in order of who you think should be in the final movie! Thanks…
also… the voting situation goes like this ( 1st = 10pts , 2nd = 8pts , 3rd = 6pts , etc… ) so putting someone who is rated high in 1st will strengthen their lead significantly… and putting someone rated low in 1st can boost their rating significantly as well.
if you still dont know what Innersection is, or how to sign up… watch the video posted below.
go check it out… INNERSECTION
