I just got done watching the video at work on a good movie monitor with decent sound. Excellent work Team Brandt! I love the music! Great choice the upbeat tempo is the perfect fit with the waves and riders. Maybe the best piece of mat footage ever.

Anon, I believe that would be Mateo and it was a very neat "trick" indeed!

Yeah, bigger is better. I watched on my iPhone last night, didn't quite cut it. Let's just say it's the freshest footage for now. GG set the bar pretty high, I'm still looking up at it : )

That dismount/remount was "Mateo." Big young man with great wave skills and a comfortably relaxed style that I really dig.

Mister D, I totally agree that GG did set the bar high. His in the tube POV stuff has stood the test of time and is worth watching over and over but in terms of high quality state of the art mat riding I think you are holding the goods. Mateo's dis/re (along with all the rest), ASB's speed runs and edge control this is all very very good stuff.

Those bottom turns at the end are choice, I must do that!!!! Great footy! Props Dirk! I had my Birthday yesterday so there's a lag on the footage upload. Not much but I'll give you what I took. Man, I'm still glowing from Sunday. More please!!!1

Mateo said...

ahh... you guys! all the footage and comments, definetly still glowing!

GG will always be legend... A non-surfer friend quoted him the other day without even knowing who he was! "nothing ventured, nothing gained" ...
I think it be cool to re-make Crystal Voyager.. Go the places greenough went with High performance mats, kneeboards and funky surfboards... beavertails, bowl-cuts and fishing with hand-lines!....
It might begin with ASB getting a long sandy barrel with his Nue helmet cam, flash over to Mattitude shifting gears in his 67 Volvo down PCH ... : )

Mateo, Yes, yes indeed!

Ramsnake said...

I remember exclaiming to my beloved as we were watching the video " Oh never thought to do that before, I'll have to give that a try!" following Mateo getting going again trick. Fantastic!
