DIY Rubber Duck Riders!!!

At the 7:10 mark, the footage that once was Rubber Duck Riders was used in Crystal Voyager...



To recreate the buzz of the most classic air mat movie of all time, play the Crystal Voyager segment with the sound down, and substitute the original Rubber Duck Rider soundtrack...Keep On Chooglin' by CCR!



Or, as an alternative, here is a kick ass live version of same...

Great stuff Paul!

Cool stuff.Those mats look narrow and low volume to me compared to what I'm used to seeing.

The old "Stripes Down" Hodgmans were very narrow, very thick, and somewhat longer than what we use now.

Also, they are 4 pontoon designs, which don't hold in particularly well. That explains why they have to fight to get them to stay in the pocket even though the mats are thick and narrow...which, in theory, should stick like glue.

You can see George fighting to keep his mat high along the wall in the last trimming shot.

Wow, that was so much better with that music!

Who all is that riding besides George?

PG said...

The guy in the black wetsuit with the red butt area is Michael Cundith. The other main guy is George.

George and Mike are almost indistingishable! However, you can see that Mike rides his mat a bit further back than George. And they both have have a death grip on the outer rails to keep those mats going forward.

The mat rider on the glassy wave at the start, with short dark hair, is probably "Charthouse Duke."

The water shots were done by George. The land shots by a student crew from Brooks Institute of Photography.
