The Story behind Eclipse

Following from my 2015 Edit "TAO", it took quite some time to work our what I wanted to do with my 2016 season.  2015 was supposed to be the season that I would do my own thing, and focus on some invite events and comitt to THe Wakeskate Tour.    With the Tour cancelled last year, other video projects, that we impossible to turn down and Monster pulling out of wake, things were nothing like what was planned.

So starting 2016, I was stoked that The Wakeskate Tour was back on, and stoked that so many independent events were all organized and confirmed.  Those two things, set my schedule, I got myself a camera and decided to capture as much of my travels, riding and  events.  

The first idea was to put together the clips myself and produce the edit myself.    

 

I have realized how much work is invovled in putting together an edit and that you have to work to deadline.  Besides events and committments to my sponsors, i have been working on the re-design of Thai Wakepark pool gap and during the season, designed an obstacle for Kingwinch Wake park and Unit Parktech.    So as the season was getting underway, I reached out to ANDY KOLB, with my ideas and asked him to be editor, and am stoked that he wants to be part of this seasons video.

 

The planned release date on line, will be 23rd December (my Birthday and the same release date of "TAO" last year).

A special mention to both Rip Curl and Spy who have supported me to put together this seasons edit.  Without them, and without my other sponsors, I would never be able to bring such ideas and concepts to a reality.

I want to thank everyone for their interest in this project and I hope it gives you as much stoke watching it, as it has given me working on this project.
