This waterproof video camera is CRAZY cool! We’ve used it quite a bit in the last month and Ted has put together a little montage of my surfing.
It’s super melodramatic – you gotta do something to spice it up when the surfing isn’t exactly a Wow Fest – and he went for a Spike Lee thing with his entry.
The first couple of frames are from my cracked rib incident, and the rest are from the weeks that proceeded. You can see, I’m still trying to figure out where to be on the wave (as I’m riding a lot of whitewater).
When he was looking for a good song to use for the soundtrack, I think he was inspired by my Irish dancer-esque dismounts (you’ll see what I mean). Some people think river dance when they hear this kind of music. Ted, evidently, thinks surf video.
