As a film maker, getting lost in some of the detail of this wave in slomo is all part of the attraction. Can't wait to share some of the frames when this production is completed. It's rare, beautiful, violent and captivating all in one. #ShipsternBluff#Tasmania#Grunt#Donk 👊🏽 And what about the humans that ride these waves? Toy with it? Want it? Love it..... #NextLevel 🙌🏽
There's not really many of the young crew down here in Tasmania that are chasing Shippies when it's on these days.... Besides the core crew (tagged) the next generation haven't really showed the same amount of interest in going for it when it gets big. Maybe that will change with the incentive of having this Red Bull Cape Fear comp.... But there is one younger fella that has been putting his time in over the last few years and is starting to get some bombs recently. It's really bloody good to see! This is a shot this 'grom' @nellykordstrom (Kelly Nordstrum) that stands about 6'2" tall and has the heart of a lion. Critical position to be in and he made it. I'm sure you'll see more of Kel in the future. Keep charging mate.... It's good to see you do it and fire up the lads 🔥⚡️ #highline Learning along the journey!
Drive & shoot 🍻 Tahiti 2008....... ___________________________________________________________ Back when I used to work for Billabong we'd go to Tahiti every year for the WCT and make a covermount DVD for Surfing Life. Solid, Tropical Punch, (Can't remember the other one) & Inside Outside over the course of the 4 visits to Teahupo'o. I miss that place. Really cool people, amazing waves and it's warm & tropical 🌴🌸🍍 I miss the family I used to stay with and the locals that we used to shoot with too. Haven't been back to Chopes since this last session that I shot here. Good times driving the old tinny that survived a few incursions on the reef through the passes late at night after a few beers. (@chrisbryanfilms) Shooting 8ft #Teahupoo with a camera in one hand and driving a tinny with the other seems like so long ago now. Pretty sure this was my last time out here when @bratchelor got a few and told @binnstagram not to go on one. He went anyway, as he does! 10 years doesn't seem that long ago but between then and now there's been so much happen. #GoodTimes at the end of the road!! #GoodMemories
