After a long long wait




It is finally here, I would like to apologize for the long wait. We have ran into some problems with music rights, however I just got off the phone from the distributor. With some good news, the copies will be back to my house in 5-7 days which means we start shipping in 5-7 days!! Even better news than that, for making everyone wait so long if you pre order a copy in the next 5 days you will only have to pay $15 dollars for the movie rather than the MSRP of $20. In 5 days Ill be taking down this link to buy the video for 15 and will make a new one for 20! The link is the google check out button right below the disc image, So pre order the video while you can and save 5 dollars.

We're Just Skiing, An all winch film, produced by 420 Films
Run length is 45 minutes with over an hour of bonus footage
Until you receive your copy be sure to enjoy this new little teaser to hold you off.

Its About That Time

Well folks it's been an amazing 2 years filming this video, however she is coming to an end. Its been almost a year since we released our first teaser for the video. Today I thought it would be nice to put together another little preview for how our movie is turning out. Also the news is in that we will be holding our premiere right in the heart of orlando at Taste located in college park on the night of April 20th. We will have a live band (Savi Fernandez Band) playing before and after the showing of the movie. Keep checking the blog for a flyer with all the details listed. Until then be sure to enjoy this little montage....

sorry sorry sorry


I apologize for the absolute lack of attention to this blog. As our last post said we have been winching the days away and enjoying this warm weather Florida brings us. This past weekend we made yet another trip over to the west coast, which was amazing. Thanks Justin for the hospitality and again im sorry about the rug. Anyways the rest of the next 2 months before we premiere our video on 4/20, we will probably be taking a lot of these 3 day weekend road trips. I will try to keep her updated as much as possible in the meantime. I still have no internet on my main pc only wireless for my laptop so unfortunately no new almost stomped wednesdays for a week or 2 more, but until then check out todays Alliance Monday Cover of Russell Brightwell getting funky in bama.

Winching the days away

Sorry about not updating the blog lately, we've been to busy enjoying this 80 degree weather in Florida. Unfortuantly our rail wasn't far enough away from this human species and they destroyed her at immediate sighting. So here is a gif saturday on a sunday in her memory, with russ throwing a back nose to back 270 off.

Gif Saturdays

This weeks gif saturday features Ben Horan performing a frontnose to front 270 off of the old water monsters flat rail. I was able to get this shot a couple of weeks back when andy and ben invited us out to do some winching. Unfortuantly valencia water control caught on to this extravaganza and shut her down... however, she will go down in wakeskating history.

Gif Saturdays

Todays Gif Saturday was captured wendsday, when we decided to build an incline rail in a hidden location. The shot is of Andrew Krouse throwing a clean backboard front big spin out. At first andrew was questioning if the rail was long enough, but he quickly changed his mind as he got comfortable on her check it out below....

Solution to our problem...RAIN

Earlier this week I made a post...well more of a rant about all the winch spots in orlando being a bust or not hittable right now. The first solution we did was build a rail away from all human kind, they don't seem to like all these water monsters running around orlando. We were able to winch the incline all wednesday afternoon with no one bothering us...Great Success!

Today I awoke to windy, cloudy, and unfavorable conditions, however everyone was ready to winch. We took some cinder blocks and sandbags to a gap that is only hittable in the rain, and let me tell you it was pouring. The good thing about it raining so hard was that no one actually seemed to care that we were winching...hmmmm With this in mind we might just have to wait till it rains to winch with no hassles.

Almost Stomped Wednesdays

Sorry for the delay, but vimeo was down last night doing some updates and wouldn't allow me to upload. Anyways on to the good stuff..todays' almost stomped clip features vinny knapp attempting a switch 540 down lee and gordons mill. We got this shot on our 2 week roadtrip through the southeast while we were coming back from tennesse on our way to alabama. Usually the owner has to be at the gap and with his permission you are able to session it, however it was a weekend so the tour attraction was closed and we sneaked around the back for an uniterupted day of winching.

Ironic....


All those red squares are winch possibilities, you would think out of 40 something odd locations we would find one to hit....wrong



I thought winching was suppose to make wakeskating more accessible, it seems the opposite lately in orlando...there is officially not one gap to hit in orlando.

Metro West - Drought
Dr Phillips - Drought
Deer creek - Bust
Lee Road - Bust ( got arrested )
Hunters Creek - Bust ( got arrested )
Goldenrod - Bust
Airport - Bust
Water Monsters rail - M.I.A.
Pine Creek - No landing water
Baldwin Park - Bust
Castle creek - maybe but probably not flowing
Lake Howell road gap - that bitchy lady still lives there bust
Blanchard - Gators / immediate bust

and finally, I put a rail in my backyard and my neighbor starts throwing a fit about how I'm ruining his property value because he can see the rail from his house.

Never thought my own backyard would be a BUST.

Saturday Gifs


( Click on picture to see full picture, blogger cuts it off on the homepage )

Today's Saturday Gif is composed of Kyle Walton frontboarding a canoe that we redneck rigged on top of some rocks. The shot was taken in no other Tallasse, Alabama while on a winch trip shooting with la sewer. All we had was a 4x4 support underneath the nose resting on a rock. Kyle was chosen as the guinea pig and he didn't hesitate throwing a clean frontboard. I didn't know if I was more happy that he landed it or the fact that the canoe worked and was still in tact for more shredding. If you want to see what else went down on the red canoe be sure to check out La Sewer and Clearlines new project ** Change Is Good **.

Its Cold in Florida

Well I got good news and I have some bad news. Ill go ahead and start with the good news Black Betty is running 100% and ready for some action. The bad news is, its been absolutely frigid the last 2 days in Orlando. This morning I awoke to crystals on all the trees from sprinklers, not my cup of tea for winching. Some brighter news is that tomorrow is a high of 71 and the weekend will also be gracing us with 75 degree weather. Its looking like a 3 day weekend of winching weekend warrior status, on the other hand enjoy this video we made of russell and martin skating the cold days away..

Almost stomped Wednesdays


Untitled from james on Vimeo.




This weeks almost stomped Wednesdays clip is of Nick Dauzat attempting a back 180 down lee vista gap. With all the hype around lee vista in the homeless video and and the alliance trip, we decided we would give it a try. There was nice parking around the corner at a local bank like alliance said and while nick was running the winch over in a full on sprint he hit a ditch in the grass causing the hitch exstension of the winch to jam into his knee. Yeah ouch! After attempting 3 pulls he called it quits with his knee in agony, yuri gave it a go and was able to get one pull in and throw a front 1 before the community security showed up and had a fit.

Saturday Gifs



This weeks gif is composed of a Gainesville local that we spotted skating a box in the street, while on our 2 week southeast roadtrip. We stopped the car got out our boards and started skating with them, we then had the bright idea of moving the box down a 2 flat 1 which was tons of fun and I was able to get this shot of a local backside fiddy fiddy her.

Gif Saturdays

Today's Gif is composed from a trip that we went on roughly 3 months ago back in October. We did a 2 week road trip through the southeast,all over FL, GA, AL, and TN. Don't forget to pick up the movie we're just skiing to check out more of this road trip, and many more other crazy adventures. Meanwhile, enjoy this gif of russell brightwell backboarding a ledge that we have been scoping since the winch was invented, we got maybe 2 pulls in before being chased out by some angry golfers. Obviously golfers are little more dedicated to waking up early and getting to the green then we are, our goal was to get on the course before any golfers, but that didn't happen...I wonder why?
