The overall editing sucked ass. I'm no expert in editing, but watching it...damn! It gave me a headache! I think the editors were goin' for the "cool" look. They need to watch Mayday...simple, but awesome filming, editing, music...all around awesome!

I am with Joe, I'd give it like a 2. The editing was horrible, the soundtrack was decent at best, and each rider had like 2 full actual real tricks in their sections that weren't cut up and destroyed by some artsy editing. Other than that it was chad sharpe trying to lock people in the port-o-potty.

I loved it because the music flowed and it showed alot of extra stuff on and around the water that the hyperlite crew did. But... everyone else I know hated it. There is nothing new in it from any of the riders except Parks destroying that big ass slider, but then Parks destroying something isn't really new. Don't buy it if your looking for new riding, only if you like the team and want to watch them showcase natural talent.

I'd give the editing an 8, soundtrack a 7, riding a 6. It's more of a lifestyle video than a riding video, but I really enjoyed it.

I would give it a three. I just checked out the Wake TV #14 video and really liked it

We've seen Mayday

i give editing a 6, soundtrack a 9, and riding 6. Brian Grubb's, Danny Harf's, and Erik Ruck's sections were tight but it showed way to much pointless crap like Scott Byerly riding a bike and a bunch of Softball. I liked F4A way more.

I would give it a 2. Like was said above, too much worthless crap. Also too many sliders, almost the whole movie is sliders, sliders are cool to see once or twice in a segment, but not for an entire segment. I would spent your money and buy an older movie, Mayday, Free 4 All, Monkey on a string, shaft. I think the riding back then was more pure.

I thought the editing was great (8). Content was lacking (4). Way too many sliders, softball, go carts, shaun murray playing guitar... It was funny for a second, but then I was looking for my remote control to fast forward. Wakeboarding videos should be about WAKE boardind.

wake boardind must be something new...haha. Teasing..

Everyone, save your pennies and buy the byerly movie, the flf dvd, and the gravity dvd. You won't be disappointed with the last two, and I've heard really good things about the byerly film...something about "learning about your roots."

"All or Nothing" still the best =IMO

5. I follow Bill. It is more lifestile than riding. "Free 4 All" is still no. 1. Look at Shane's section. He is so cool and laid back. And the music in the entire movie is great. "Swollen members" and "Abstract rude" just rules. Watch it. I gave it 10

Welcome is a 3....the only good riding section in my opinion is danny harfs and the only really good song is the M. Ward "outta my head" from Murray's section. That said, you guys have interesting tastes in video (i.e. free 4 all---I think Bame tries wayyyyyy to hard to make his videos "cooL"). I think Sfumato blows every recent video out of the water in terms of rider progression and quality editing. I know wakeskating isn't that accepted on this site but the video is great. Best wakeboard movie i can think of recently is running with scissors circa 2002.

this video sucks. riding isnt very inspirational and they tool around the same lake which gets really old, really fast. i didnt find the non riding parts very entertaining either. im no techy so i cant speak for editing and filming.
id get either metronome or running w/ scissors.good videos.

Hunter, so if a rider doesn't do any inverts or 7's, his/her section sucks? Shane's not in my Top 5 of favorite riders, but you gotta admit, he has a lot of style, w/ tweaked grabs and grabbed spins.
