Great turnout for the premier, which is a good video by the way. Ruck's segment with Murray singing and playing guitar is a classic, worth the price of the DVD by itself! Check out the preview of Ruck's section to get an idea...

The premier was sick! Another great hyperlite vid to add to the collection.

Too FUN. Kevin and I had a great time. Thanks again to John for making Kevins dream come true!!

Billabong Bus-
I HAD to see what was in that bus so I strolled on in and met some great people. I was kind of expecting to see the bus all pimped out inside or something but it's just as plain-gray on the inside as it is on the outside. Really nice people though:-)

Bill, what a great picture! Was I a little excited or what?? Brian is such a sweetheart!! That kinda did it for me

Bill, looks like the party was a success, (Nice pics) did those guys ride when they were in town? What't the next stop for "team Hyperlite"?

Did you snag me a Grubb poster?

We had a blast hanging with everyone down there at the S.D premier! The after party was legendary. Smitty's rocks!! Totally worth the drive from V.C. (Lori (thats U.F.C Lori to Dave )and I don't get out much anymore)

The premiere was fun, Joey did a great job of editing, Ronn did a awesome job of filming it, but the movie was boring because of the content. Those riders are way better than that, Parks sliding was sick, but other than that no that entertaining. If Joey and Ronn wouldn't have done such a great job it would have been horrible. All I here is how JD is sooooooo great, the riding in the movie didn't look that great??? Good, but definetly not great, don't get me wrong there was good riding in it, but not for the best of the best, which those guys pretty much are, but check it out, I'd love to hear other peoples opinions on it.

Dirty, I agree the vid was just ok.I thought Byerly's part was degrading .

Hey Rob, it was great meeting you and your wife. Yeah that was definitely a fun night, and Friday was just as good - although the Salty Dawg closes at 12:30 so it was a much earlier night.

I've watched the video a couple of times now, and I really like it. I think Joey did a great job of editing it, it was entertaining with some good, if not great, riding. It may not be the best video in terms of pure riding, but I really enjoyed it. The DVD has a couple of secret sections with more footage of the guys messing around and having fun, plus Chad hitting a slider on a Broadcast.

Nick, I wish I knew. Unfortunately I got to the OC shop about 8:30 and it was over already. Apparently it's not very long. I tried to find the DVD to play it after Welcome was done, but whoever brought it to the shop left with the disk

So someone else will have to post their impressions of it.

I thought Asterisk was great. They had some really crazy stuff in there and I liked the way they threw the crashes in throughout the flick (Welcome did this too). I'm also a big fan of Justin's music picks for all his videos and this was no exception. It's always stuff I've never heard of, but great tunes.

Keep in mind that we're a sponsor of Asterisk, so take my opinion for what it's worth! :-)

Bill it was really great meeting you. We should hook up. I really wanted to see Byerly do more of the cool little things he does. I really should have bought the video. But thats ok, now I have an excuse to come down to WakeSports Unlimited!

Asterisk was sick...kickflip body variel by? (damn red cups) and the 540 big spin by Reed wake 2 wake (540 shuvit/body variel). Plus a lake/pond near Vegas like a wakeskate park...hits and ollie bars everywhere...Wakesports put on a great party...everyone needs to hit up the shop every week to get the downlow

Rob, it was great to meet you and your lovely wife. What a fun couple. Where did you end up crashing for the night?
