I did something I have never done before, for fun. I took the youtube feed of the live contest at the Northwest Wakesurf Open
and then synced it up with HD video. I wanted to see the HD video of Chris Wolter's and James Walkers run as they happened with the audio commentary and all. I also replaced the feed instant replay with a replay and slow mo of every single trick while still keeping in sync. Its bit long, but it def gives you the "I was there" feeling.
I believe, but could be corrected, that this was the first surf style big spin in comp. Check it out:
That was WAY too much fun and both guys threw down amazing runs, I am not a judge, but if James would have landed his big spin, I think he would have taken it, and he was SO close. That shuv in and shuv out he did was very cool.
Rematch is coming this weekend at the Endless Wave Tour Boise Surf This! Bash
, if you are anywhere near, come check it out. Along with James and Chris, Chase Hazen, Chris Kinsey Jr, Jimmi Sparling and Aaron Witherell are all also scheduled run in Open Men Surf, its going to be fun.
We are going to try to record the feed and then upload at the end of the day, since the competition is in a remote area and can't be broadcast live. It should work fine.
Here is the roster updated live from the Boise event:
See you there!
