found this rock in the woods a year ago and thought it may be rideable.  it took about 3 hrs to ride to it.  by the time I was done scraping out the runout with my feet, it was really dark so the photo isn't as good as I wanted, but oh well, I probably won't do it again considering how much effort it took to get there, plus it was just dumb to be hours from the nearest person.  self-portrait btw

 Eric Palmer's 'Through the Lens' write-up was a good read a few weeks back, but I bet the Brad Walton Masterclass would kick ass! What wonders do you have in that Dakine Sequence pack (hey, like the plug?!) or are you rocking Vaude now?

 thanks! Now I just gotta spend less time riding and more time shooting... Strictly Dakine. Just got a Reload pack and damn, it's the ticket. More room and better padding, carries the weight similar to the Sequence, and it has a waterproof cover and zipper seals. Pretty big though. For shooting while riding the Sequence is still the best.

 Ah, it's coming! We're having a hard time all hooking up together as Farah and I live miles from out other mates who ride Transitions and the weather's invariably crap, but we've got some nice shots in the can and some sweet little sections edited. It's definitely gonna be more flowy than hucks, but there might be some doubles and there's already a bit of shore. Been busting out my best After Effects moves too and doing a little grading and fakery of DOF in the process...well you kinda need to, given my single CCD DV camera. Hoping to get a Canon 7D lined up for the next vid to get some sweet shallow DOF Wink

 thanks, I just wish I would have got going about 3 hours earlier in the day but had to de-flood my kitchen. Oh yeah, don't run your dishwasher while you're not home. When it finally decides to take a dump, which could be anytime really, you're gonna want to know about it asap!
