Full Show Description:

Xcorps #49.) ROAD TOUR 2 – The cross country Xcorps journey continues from Boston to San Diego on the road with show host Jason Lazo crossing the Wyoming border stopping to have a beer at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson Hole followed by a wild down slope mountain bike ride at the Idaho Grand Targhee Resort.

Segment one rolls to rockabilly band Volbeat strumming a sweet tune and Jason under the massive elk antler arches in Jackson Hole. Check out the well worn saddles instead of bar stools at the Million Dollar Cowboy bar, shoot location for the drunk orangutans scene in Clint Eastwoods film “Any Which Way You Can”.
After that Jason crosses the line into Idaho on his way to the super scenic Grand Targhee Ski Resort near Driggs Idaho. Was that a giant Idaho Spud on the back of a flat bed truck!?

The next segment was made for Xcorps HD cams with scenes of the Grand Teton Mountains looming close and clear. Sweet music video mix by Corey Crowder. Established as a National Park in 1929 The Grand Tetons lie due east of Driggs Idaho. Most people and photographic depictions know the Tetons from the east in Wyoming. Leave it to Xcorps to take the road less traveled!

Jason checks in at Grand Targhee Resort and meets promo director Mandy Hood who talks about  a recent years 700 inch snowfall making this resort a powder heaven for boarders and skiers. Jason picks up a mountain bike and safety gear and hits the lift with pros Tim Dipple and Tyler Hilditch who tip the J Man on how not to do an ENDO down the trail!  At the 10,000 foot top the action picks up with the boys dropping in and fast down pushed by DIRTBALL music c/o SubnoiZe Records. Check out the air under those big suspension bikes and the elevated and banked wooden bike trail sections.  An XC look at a world-class ski resort in all its summers glory complete with wild flowers!

After that the adventure continues with Jason up at dawn to meet Kevin Morgan from Teton Balloon Flights out of Driggs Idaho for a relaxing and ultra scenic ride in a hot air balloon.  Folk style country tunes from the Deadstring Brothers paints the scene with Jason doing some reporting from inside the balloon as it fills with hot air from 2- 30-foot flames being shot straight him! It was a chilly morning!
HD was made for the next scenes with the Tetons at dawn and the scenery below. If you’re scared of heights you will be very afraid here! Cool video shots from below the balloon with the HD camera at the end of a 50-foot rope looking up!  A typical Xcorps move!
The float ride closes out with a sweet landing mixed with a custom techno tune by Sundarajan Mutialu of Auntie O Records. Nice. We do mix up the styles here on Xcorps.

After the break the shows closing segment finds Jason on the road again heading west to Twin Falls Idaho and the very high Perrine Bridge for some BASE jumping!  Nice free-falls here into the Evel Knievel tested famously wild Snake River Canyon!

The Idaho adventure continues in the next Xcorps episode with Jason hooking up with Killgore Adventures for some jet boating and camping on the Snake in Hells Canyon.

Xcorps 420 Series MOONLIGHT BEACH STORMING
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w9ke5xpLy4Xcorps Action Sports TV is based 25 miles north of San Diego in the small seaside town of Encinitas. In this video a winter storm hits this Southern California town and the locals make the best of it!
This short film is another addition to the XC 420 series with a look at storm scenes at Moonlight Beach shot at 4:20 pm the afternoon of January 18th 2010.

Sound track music from local band MOWER doing their cover version of the legendary 1965 Mamas and Papas hit song ‘California Dreamin”.

Two blocks from the Xcorps offices is Moonlight Beach one of the most pristine beaches in SD County.  Many surfers rip the waves off this beach but on this date a big El Nino winter storm rolled in hammering the area with some major wind and rain. Surf conditions- blown out and stormy!

As an alternative local surfers hit the nearby STREETS riding a 2-inch layer of rainwater down the hill on 4th street! Having fun is all about adaptation and rolling with what’s offered! Just don’t wipe out-the pavement hurts!

Check out the spongers doing 360 helicopters down this Encinitas beach neighborhood street with flood stage Cottonwood Creek ripping nearby!

Wild shots as millions of gallons of rainwater runoff roars across the beach and meets the Pacific all framed by a sweet sunset break in the storm!

Just another day in the neighborhood.

Show Details:
Xcorps #48.) ROAD TOUR - Rolling into a new TV season team X launches a fresh wave of assaults upon the lame and mundane by shooting a massive coast to coast Road-Tour stretching from Boston to San Diego!

The show opens up with host Jason Lazo standing in the New Jersey surf after flying in from San Diego California to visit RIVE- the source of many of the music videos that appear on the show. Jason hangs at a local skate park in Long Branch N.J. and talks with RIVE owner John Warden and producer Nick Paolise who talk about what exactly RIVE does for musicians and bands.

After that the pedal hits the metal with Jason jumping on U.S. interstate 80 west. Nice high speed road shots here rolling to a brand new video from an alt pop band from Denmark-The Asteroids Galaxy- Tour presented by Girly Action.
Pretty fun way to roll the highway with this band in the stereo!
Jason pushes the car all night stopping at 6:30 am on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River between Illinois and Iowa for a report to the camera. After another fill-up the miles keep rolling by cut to a video from keyboard talent Aaron Barnhart doing his song Day in Day Out. Lots of farm scenes here of mid America looking summer green and then onward to the Wyoming border!

Jason exits on the next segment for a little break on his trans-continental drive at the highest point on U.S.80- also known as the Lincoln Highway-Americas first cross country highway. The air is a bit thin here at 8,640 feet. A freaky animated video from the band A Lull doing their song Skinny Fingers rolls with big sky scenes here of the Wyoming landscape.
Jason talks about the journey as the miles roll on then decides to exit the big road to head south on U.S. highway 530 for a closer look at the super scenic Flaming Gorge National Park. Great shots here and what kind of animal was that? It seems like the Xcorps host-reporter was the only one on the road following the Green river and finding a camping spot near the town of Red Canyon. Check out what he does NOT have for dinner!

Segment 5 of this cross country journey opens up the next morning with more rainbow colored mountains and close ups of wildlife with Jason throwing out some geological thoughts. Etheral environ tunes by David Huber backs his informative rap.
The show closes out with scenes from part-2 of the Xcorps ROAD TOUR show where the action really starts rolling in Idaho with mountain biking and hot air ballooning at the Grand Targhee resort, BASE jumping off the Perrine bridge and jet-boating the Snake river through Hells Canyon. As they say in these parts-this aint no show for lilies!

These moves by YouTube indicate that viewing video on the web has come of age and the convergence between broadcast-cable-satellite TV and the web is being led by YouTube.
In fact recent deals with TV networks and film studios has made seeing many TV shows on YouTube in HD a reality!

Last month riding this convergence wave Xcorps began uploading to YouTube show segments in full 1280x720 HD size video and has now topped more than 100 show segment uploads! More than 150 Xcorps segment uploads are planned by December 31.

YouTube was bought a year later by the Internet search and advertising giant Google Inc for a massive $1.65 billion.

Xcorps show #47.BIG AIR- Show Details:

Xcorps #47.) BIG AIR –  The Xcorps rolls another wild show shooting freestyle FMX action with the Red Bull X Riders at the Del Mar Fair in San Diego along with tow-in off-road skateboard jumping in this super X branded show.
Jason Lazo hosts and reports opening the show up at the Del Mar Fair in San Diego California at an event called the Red Bull Action Sports Expo featuring the Red Bull X Riders hucking some twisted freestyle Moto X big air moves!
Seems like just a few years ago when we shot Mike Metzger pulling the first back flips on a MX bike! Now the XC cameras are rolling on riders like Lance Coury,Jesse Jolson,Destin Cantrell and Tommy Clowers – the New Generation X of MX.
Danish rockabilly band Volbeat backs the action with their new video WE delivered by our friends at RIVE.
Jason overviews the action and talks to show organizer and promoter Rob Phillips from Podium Productions who gives some details on the event.

After the break the offroad X sport of mountain or dirt-boarding is featured with video from the longest downhill dirt skate race in the world- Mt.Palomars Nate Harrison 7 mile downgrade! Check the dust fly behind these dirt skaters pumped by tunes from Subnoize band Mower.
Then its back to Brad Beren and the Hooterville Hooligans showing off their dirtboarding skills at the Del Mar Fair event. See them tow in behind a Rhino Quad hitting the mini ramps for some fun air right under the Red Bull FMX action! Check out 9 year old Daymein Hertenstein also catching sweet air off the tow in jumps!  Nice mix only on Xcorps- The only show rolling HD at this event!

Then Xcorps introduces to the show a new segment called Sweet Rides which focuses on hot cars and their drivers. Not trailer queen hobby toys but cool cars made to drive the streets! This week Xcorps host Scott Sommers reports from Encinitas Ca and talks to the owner of a sweet ’69 Camaro with a 454! Look for more Sweet Rides segments in future Xcorps episodes including a feature on Rat Rods!

The show closes out with another heavy dose of FMX ariel antics c/o The Red Bull X Fighters at the Del Mar Fair. The Hooterville Hooligans roll their own airtime on their dirtboards pushed by a little more Volbeat music.
Great POV camera shots c/o GO PRO http://www.goprocamera.com/

The HIGH END video site created by the Dutch who recently sold licensing rights to Indonesia is unique because it will be feeding traditional broadcast TV networks content from its website to appear on TV screens in ASIA and EUROPE.

REUTERS STORY-
HILVERSUM, The Netherlands, February 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Uploaded TV, the Dutch social & video sharing network announces the sale of the Upload 2 TV master license to Indonesia.

Xcorps Action Sports Press: XC receives OPENFILM AWARD

Xcorps Press San Diego California March 23, 2009

Xcorps Action Sports TV is now featured on the new OPENFILM web portal and has received positive reviews and awards.

The launch of one segment from each of 46 Xcorps episodes on the new web HD site OPENFILM was a major one! The upload process took 4 weeks and involved the largest video XC file uploads to any action sports site on the web-2 GIGS- resulting in incredible web quality image and sound. OPENFILM is based in Miami Florida.

OPENFILM-The site showcases a fast-growing collection of high quality live-action and animated films displayed in high resolution. Openfilm provides a venue for users to watch premium video content, as well as for filmmakers to exhibit their works.

Xcorps has been awarded a positive review and Film Maker of The Month Award!

OPENFILM Xcorps Films Channel Review
http://www.openfilm.com/reviews/xcorps/

OPENFILM Xcorps Filmmaker of the Month AWARD -$500.
http://www.openfilm.com/awards/

Xcorps review by The Miami Film critic/Openfilm:

 “This channel takes you to the edge with outdoors coverage and sporting events.”
“Xcorps is a TV series based in San Diego. It's basically a sports and music channel, devoted to covering underexposed competitions like surfing, skating and jetboarding. The videos are fast-paced, dynamically edited, and informative enough to appeal to fans and non-fans alike.”

“Hawaiimana is shot in lovely Oahu, and features an interview with 11-time NSSA champion Carissa Moore. This video has some really awesome surfer footage in it, and the Oahu waves look good enough to drink. SKATE offers more than its title suggests.
Not only do you get skater punks doing dangerous half-pipes on sloping ramps, but you also get a music videos. Total Combat is about the world's fastest-growing sport; fans of Spike TV should be familiar with it. Dig the rage music. Winter X features a segment on Tom Whittaker, an amputee who climbed Mt. Everest. Boy, do I feel like a lazy ass.”
Other videos are about water sports and races in the desert, Road Warrior-style. Lot to choose from here.”Thanks- Miami Movie Critic / OPENFILM

In other Xcorps NEWS the current XC episode in edit SNOWBIKE-2 is nearing completion and it ROCKS!  Release within 2 weeks. Update to follow.

More on the band (hed)p.e. from WIKIPEDIA:
Hed PE, also known as (hed) planet earth and stylized as (h?d) p.e., is an American rock band from Huntington Beach, California.
Formed in 1994, the band performs a style of music which they refer to as "G-punk". Their music is primarily based in a fusion of punk rock and hip hop, but they have also been known to incorporate elements of heavy metal, reggae and other genres.
After releasing three albums on Jive Records, Hed PE left the label to record independently, eventually signing with Suburban Noize Records in 2006. To date, they have released seven studio albums, one live album and one compilation album.
The band was formed by rapper Jahred Shane, also known as "M.C.U.D." (MC Underdog), and guitarist Wes Geer, who became friends amidst the Orange County hardcore punk scene.
Shane and Geer recruited guitarist Chizad, bassist Mawk, drummer B.C. Vaught and DJ Product © 1969. They named the group "Hed", which stands for "higher thought".
The band built a following with their energetic performances at local venues and released the self-financed extended play, Church of Realities. Legal issues forced Hed to change their name, adding "PE", which stood for "Planet Earth".

Xcorps Action Sports Press-SKATEPIPE Next XC Episode

Xcorps camera team shoots skate legend Steve Alba at the PIPELINE skate park in Upland California for the next Xcorps episode #45 called SKATEPIPE.

The Xcorps HD shoot crew led by on host Jason Lazo rolled into the small southern California town of Upland to meet pool skate legend Steve Alba AKA ”Salba” at the Pipeline skate park- home and roots to some of the best Vert skaters on the planet- for the next episode of Xcorps to be called SKATEPIPE now in edit.

This next XC show will feature Steve Alba ripping the Upland Pipe on his board along with many other talented locals catching massive air off the 20-foot tall 360-degree concrete tube. The Pipe is part of 10,000 sq. foot Skate Park, which opened to the public in 2002 and was designed by Steve Alba and California Skate parks Purkiss Rose.

One of the coolest skate zones we have shot, the Upland park is a holy zone modeled after the original Upland skate park of the 1970’s-which was modeled after the original Baldy Flood Control Pipe- and contains all aspects of bank/vert skating starting with a mini-ramp take off ledge rolling into a phat metal coped half-pipe leading into a 20 foot full-pipe and ending in a deep swimming pool size vert bowl. YiKes!
It’s a smooth fast speed zone and it’s not for beginners! Skate wheels sing there like banshee devil dogs and bone crunching freefalls happen easy! Xcorps cams captured some great action including shots from a POV cam attached to Salbas helmet. The Xcorps shoot crew-included network Emmy winner Dave Alvarez and producer Sundarajan also snagging HD shot action.

Xcorps host Jason Lazo talked with Steve Alba who lives in Upland about the killer park he helped design and his past and present career in the world of skateboarding. Jason also spoke to other skaters including a hot chick looping the tube and some ripper groms going full overhead! What will they morph into!??

Also in this episode is cool video footage of Steve Alba jamming with his band in a local So Cal club. Nice custom soundtrack to the action from Steve. Great new music videos from RIVE promotions and Suburban Noize Records rolls the action in this special Xcorps show.

Rounding out the shots in this episode will be some never before televised 16mm B&W film footage shot at a Pocatello Idaho Skatepark in 1980 by XC producer Stu Edmondson. Who knew they were skating in Idaho back then never mind a skate park!

Check out the following links for more on Steve Alba and the Upland Pipeline Skate Park. This show to be released in appr.4 weeks.  Classic Xcorps!

PADDLEBOARD-THE SPORT

 

Xcorps TV Press-Xcorps Shoots CATALINA PADDLBOARD

XC TV Press Release 9/3/08 San Diego Ca
Xcorps Action Sports TV-PADDLEBOARD-Next episode!

Xcorps cams zoom in on another cool niche sport born of the surfing world with a close up look at the water sport of open ocean PADDLEBOARDING featuring lone watermen stroking boards from California’s Catalina Island to the mainland-Manhattan Beach California- a distance of 32 miles!

Jason Lazo hosts this next Xcorps show, sponsored by PIPES CAFÉ and HAWAIIMANA NUTRITION, reporting from locations in Hawaii and California. Along with the California paddle boarders Jason talks to big wave tow in surfers Garrett McNamara and Keilli Mamala in Oahu’s North Shore. Great big wave video here featuring the two in action in Hawaii and Teahoopu Tahiti. Don’t miss this action!

The Xcorps shoot last Friday on the beach in Cardiff Reef Ca. included some of the 100 paddle boarders who made the epic 5 to 8 hour journey from the island of Catalina to the California mainland. Jason talked with 3 of the top 20-seated athletes, George Plsek, Brian Szymanski and Tim Fischer about the challenges and triumphs of the event. A good look here of the actual paddleboards used by the participants along with great video footage shot by videographer Dan Dixon on his jet ski during the race.

Paddle boarding events began with Tom Blake back in 1928 who raced a 120-pound board the 32 miles from Catalina to the mainland in just under 6 hours. In the early 1950’s surfboard shapers Dale Velzy, Greg Knoll and Hobie Alter introduced a new era to the sport staging the legendary races between California city and county lifeguards. Dangerous conditions cancel the Catalina race for 20 years before Gibby Gibson and Buddy Bohn revive it with a field of 10 paddlers in 1982. Buddy and Gibby have helped keep the sport alive from 1982-2006.

Qualifying for the Catalina Classic Marathon Paddleboard Race race is NOT easy with each participant having to do at least one other grueling long distance paddle beforehand.

Great new music from Suburban Noize Records as well as RIVE promotions videos matches the action in this next Xcorps episode currently in the HD edit. Show release in est.2 weeks. Just another day on the Xcorps!

Total Combat Entertainment debuted onto the Mixed Martial Arts scene back in November 2003 in Tijuana, Mexico. The objective was to give MMA athletes a venue to showcase their skills in front of a live audience.  Through tremendous fan response, Total Combat quickly became the premiere, Southern California MMA event to attend. Fans drove from as far away as Los Angeles, Vegas, and Arizona to witness the modern day equivalent of the worlds oldest sport.  Total Combat's first US show was in October of 2005 at a local casino in San Diego County and in 2006, Total Combat became the first, California Athletic Commission sanctioned MMA event in Southern California.  Now, 22 events later and over 80,000 people "served," in four states, two countries and rapidly growing thanks to your support

Xcorps #40.) HELLS CANYON  Shot in the wild Hells Canyon area of western Idaho along the Oregon border this rugged scenic and powerful Xcorps episode features on camera host Jason Lazo rocketing up class 4 rapids in a 600 HP custom jet boat catching a 9 foot 250 pound monster fish on a river called The Snake!
The wild clean outdoors fills the big screen in this show with the Xcams going wide to catch a gorge 2000 feet deeper than the Grand Canyon cut out by one of the longest and remote U.S. rivers all captured on HD tape for the XC viewer!
The show opens up with Jason near Whitebird Idaho-pop.150- dropping down to Pittsburg Landing in the Hells Canyon National Recreation area to meet with Eric Pardue from Killgore Adventures who provide jet boat river tours, hunting and fishing on the Snake and Salmon Rivers. This is wild outdoor adventures Xcorps style!
Jason takes off up-river in a custom all aluminum Idaho made Bentz boat fitted with twin 350 V-8s that can handle the powerful big river whitewater with thrilling ease! It took our widest lenses to capture the spectacular scenery of the canyon and Jason did a great job of hosting from the rolling and pitching deck of the speeding boat named Moonshine as it powered up rapids with names like Wild Sheep and Granite Creek and Green Room! Music from SubNoiZe band Mower fits the action. Hang on! Great HD shots on board and looking down from riverside cliffs with not a building or sign of civilization to be seen. More cool music from Maverick Records artist Paul Oakenfold back the action with his song Time of Your Life! Nice.
After the break more shots from North Americas deepest river gorge paint the screen to music from Bible belt band Ha Ha Tonka c/o Bloodshot Records and RIVE with scenes from their band video -St.Nick on The Fourth in a Fervor- mixing it up with scenes of crystal streams, jagged peaks and raft runners heading downstream. All American good times!
After that its time to HOOK UP with some Idaho style fishing of the BIG STURGEON variety and Eric from Killgore Adventures knows just where to pull the boat over and cast the lines! Great UW Xcam shots here of swimming Steelhead showing off. Music from David Huber doing Haida sets the mood. Jason baits up a solid pound chunk of salmon belly on a barb-less hook and casts into a 70-foot deep hole in the river. As cameras rolled on cue he gets his Ugly Stick yanked and the reel starts screaming as the battle commences Ernest Hemingway XC style! The J man cranks and pulls hard for more than an hour with the fish leading the boat down 2 sets of raging rapids before finally giving up for a moment at the surface only to laugh showing its monstrous size only to dive again working Jason into a full sweat! Fish band The Dorados throw out their song Hooked on Hookin Up for the good fit. Finally Jason’s muscle wins out and the big fish is pulled ashore, and BIG it is! Eric calms the ocean size fish by flipping it upsidown before measuring it with a full size tape measure! At nine feet and 250 lbs the catch is considered a rare Snake River Hog! Before letting it go Jason talks with Eric about the Sturgeon fish, which is estimated at 100 plus years old! With a sore lip it swims back into the rivers depths leaving us with some breathtaking shots!
Stay tuned because after that its time to look at a new way to surf the river XC Idaho style with bungee powered skim-boarding from Banshee Riverboards based in Boise Idaho. Again the Snake River delivers the fun by stretching out and loading up the giant rubber bands until the board clears the surface and takes off upriver! See local riders as well as Laguna Beach Ca world-class skimmer Bill Bryan pulling smooth moves on the Snake! This is a new way to have fun on a river and you see it first on Xcorps!
The show closes out with more Mower tunes and another wild upriver rapid run with Jason on the Moonshine recapping this episodes wild adventures! Sick shots and sounds here of Snake River waves rolling over the windshield of the jet boat during the high-speed runs. Just another day on the Xcorps!

Xcorps Special Edit BRUNEAU DUNES online

Not all Xcorps show segments feature adrenalized head banging action sports! The Xcorps crew stopped at the Bruneau Sand Dunes Idaho during a road tour from San Diego to Hells Canyon Idaho on a recent shoot. There are places in this great country where the scenic nature of things is just as extreme standing still! Take a look at what our HD cams caught just off the road at Bruneau Dunes State Park 18 miles SW of Mountain Home Idaho – the southwest corner of the state. Cool and surreal place! Music by David Huber.

Besides being Idaho’s largest astronomical observatory open to the public, this scenic zone also features the largest freestanding sand dune (470 feet) in North America surrounded by the beautiful Owyhee desert.  What really makes things interesting is the Bruneau river slices through the area and the sand water mix makes for great photographic statements.

Show details below:

Xcorps #37.)  “XCORR-1” – This Xcorps show throttles up and rips the screen with insane high horse motor sports action with coverage of the CORR off-road race series held at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster California.
CORR-Championship Offroad Racing is race genre born from the Baja Mexico 500/1000 races which led to the development of a wide range of tough custom 2 and 4 wheel drive off-road race vehicles including 800HP trucks with massive suspensions along with Pro Lite street style trucks, dirt buggies, trophy carts, ATV’s and Rhino racers. James Baldwin was instrumental in developing and bringing the races to the people with stadium style race events championed by Mickey Thompson in the 1960’s. Now many members of the Baldwin family help manage, promote and race in CORR events.
X medalist and show host Rat Sult open it up with hot music and a high desert drive to Palmdale California. N.E. of Los Angeles to the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds-site of the CORR races. The X cams were there shooting this new style of motor sports with Rat naming off drivers like Ricky Johnson, Josh Baldwin, Alan Pflueger, Curt LeDuc and Carl Renezeder who all just love battling it out in the dirt! Scarlet Records band Allhelluja matches the action with their song and video “Superhero Mother…”! Nice moves girls!
After the break it’s back to high rev mud slinging Pro-2 class off-road action in front of thousands where drivers are banging it up and going BIG off dirt kickers and berms easily covering 10 truck lengths through the air! It’s loud and Rat’s proud to be there covering all the moves over the mile long course. Sub NoiZe Records band Hed p.e. pumps it up with their song “Sweetchops”. Sick POV action shots here from cameras in the rigs as well as from an over-head cable cam capable of 100MPH+ provided by Perpetual Motion.
The next segment continues hard and fast with MOWER rolling their song ‘Road Rage’ to track action that includes mass destruction and vehicle carnage-flips-rolls and fire all over the Lancaster track! Somehow the song seems appropriate.
Body panels fly and the segment continues to pound on with more Sub NoiZe music from the Humble Gods rolling their tune ‘Destroy’-only the strongest survive! 
In the pits Rat talks to NASCAR driver Robby Gordon about CORR and his recap of the race -see what he says. After that the relentless high powered action continues with a new RIVE video from Eulogy Records band The Warriors doing their song ‘Downbeat’. Cool edit effects here along with insane airborne race action and a message from the band!
Rolling the pits Rat then speaks to driver Josh Baldwin who talks about his #86 custom Ford truck and what it takes to get the power to the ground in the rig! Check out the shots of the inside of the truck followed by more race moves with Josh jamming on the track.
Daddy X pumps the song ‘Mind Bender’ and Rat catches up with another team Baldwin driver super-cross legend and all around off-road champion Ricky Johnson who talks about what he thinks the future of CORR will be.
The show closes out with a dose of off-road single buggy action where chicks roll too! Rat talks to driver Cissy Baldwin about her moves on the track against the guys!  Go girl!  Stay tuned for part 2 of Xcorps coverage of the CORR race series with host Jason Lazo reporting from San Diego at a cool outdoor track called ‘The Quarry’.  See the Action-Hear The Music-Join The Xcorps!

Xcorps Action Sports Shoots Bonneville

Xcorps TV Press Release 8/21/07

San Diego Ca USA –Xcorps Shoots Land Speed-Bonneville Utah

 

The X action cams rolled to the desolate but beautiful Bonneville Salt Flats in western Utah to shoot ‘Speed Week’ where the fastest vehicles on the planet get a chance to prove it and enter the record books at this historic place.

Xcorps host Rat Sult fired up the mega-road coach and the X crew cruised 20 hours from San Diego to the 110F park where barren smooth salt flats cover about 100 square miles in northwestern Utah, U.S. The flats, part of the Great Salt Lake Desert, are a remnant of the bed of an ancient lake formed about 30,000 years ago now the site of Bonneville Motor Speedway.

Xcorps HD cams rolled big on a large variety of vehicles including dozens of every conceivable kind of racecar and motorcycle from the classic, rusty roadsters and coupes through the Studebakers and Camaros and Chevy Monzas all the way up to the cutting-edge, carbon fiber lakesters and streamliners and hybrids. With as many as 200 Bonneville racers in the staging Lanes, one car might be capable of 75 MPH and the next 475 MPH. It is an amazing display of mechanical ingenuity, creativity and diversity.

Every type of engine you can imagine at Bonneville could be heard, including Model A Ford inline four-cylinders, Ford flathead V-8s, vintage Chevy and GMC inline sixes, versions of the Chrysler Hemi ranging from the early 331 to the latest offerings from Keith Black and dozens of small-block and big-block Chevy’s. And then there are the huge diesel trucks, the cars that run on batteries, and a couple of turbine-powered streamliners. Many Bonneville vehicles are geared so high (for top speed) that they need to be pushed away from the starting line.

Mike and Terry Nish of Nish Motorsports took the top speed time of the week in their “Royal Purple” Streamliner topping 368mph. Great Xcorps on camera interview with them.
The hydrogen powered hybrid Ford Fusion ‘999’ hit 184mph on the short course setting itself up for the history books.

Motorcycles include flathead-powered Harley-Davidsons and Indians, old and new Triumphs, BSAs and Nortons, the occasional Italian roadracer and an array of Japanese bikes spanning the last several decades. Jason McVicar has become the first person to set a Bonneville SCTA record over 250 mph on a Siton motorcycle.

The Grand Finale of all Land Speed Racing events- Bonneville Speed Week happens every 3rd full week of August on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Sponsored by the Southern California Timing Association. This is where the history of LSR comes from. The vast area of flat, hard salt make it all possible and one of the only places in the world to conduct long distance Land Speed Racing.

Xcorps cameras rolled on it all with host Rat Sult cruising the pits for interviews with new record holders as well snagging sound bytes from drivers on the take-off line! A fun fast show coming up for sure!
Rat even raced-unauthorized-the X coach against a Chrysler 454 powered Winnebego over the salt at massive speeds! See who won!

This episode “SPEED” will follow “XCORR-2” currently in edit and will be released in about 4 weeks.

Nice Hollywood style shoot-out here to the dirt track action that includes mass destruction and vehicle punch-outs-flips-rolls and fire all over the Chula Vista track!
The segments pound on with more Sub NoiZe music from the Humble Gods pushing their tune ‘Destroy’-only the strongest survive!  Another nice fit!

XC TV Press Release 10/5/07 San Diego Ca
Xcorps Action Sports TV shoots Jet Boats in Hells Canyon Idaho.

The Xcorps TV crew rolled 1000 miles north of San Diego last week to shoot in Hells Canyon Idaho on the Snake River- a remote canyon- at 7000 feet is deeper than the Grand Canyon!

The HD cams rolled BIG on Xcorps host Jason Lazo as he explored the pristine wilderness and rode UP wild rapids on a 700HP twin 350 jet-boat supplied by Killgore Adventures based in the nearby town of White Bird Idaho-population 150! Jet-boat captain Eric Pardue piloted the custom and super rugged aluminum boat ‘Moonshine’ with cool skill as up to 5 cameras captured the X action.

Idaho is a state that few realize contains some of the most pristine and primitive outdoor areas in the U.S. and The Xcorps felt right at home there! HD cams recorded more than 100 miles of scenic wild Snake River home to sports game fish like Rainbow and Steelhead trout, Salmon, Bass and the massive and primitive river Sturgeon.
Jason grabbed a pole and baited a line with this monster fish as a target and as expected on Xcorps reeled in a near record 9-foot 300.lb beast! The battle lasted over an hour and worked the J man hard resulting in great video shots including some from the infamous XC underwater cam! The big fish was released tired but unharmed after the catch.

Just another day on The Xcorps. This show to be released after the ‘SPEED’ episode.

XC27.) CABO – The Xcorps loves action sports in exotic locations and this show delivers both in high doses with sports fishing off Cabo San Lucas Mexico, Baja offroad racing in the desert and spectacular fire dancing at the Melia Cabo resort.
The show opens with music from Maverick Records mega artist Alanis Morissette and XC front man host Bob Woodard in his element-on board captain Randy Hinton’s Cabo sportsfisher-the Incognito- heading out into one of the best fishing areas on the planet- the Pacific ocean at the end of the scenic Baja peninsula 1000 miles south of San Diego Ca. Check out the action with Bob and the crew hooking up to striped Marlin in grand Hemingway style! Included are underwater shots of the huge fighting fish along and many scenes of local wildlife such as jumping Grey whales and giant flocks of pelicans. Xcorps promotes tag and release in sports fishing demonstrated by Bob wrestling one of the underwater monsters one handed-getting the hook back and sending it on its way in the mile deep waters below. Music from the So Cal band The Dorados and their song “Hooked On Hookin Up” fits the action like a glove. This band knows their fish songs!
The next segment rolls ashore and into the desert with Bob hooking up with Gala Ancona and Fernando Cancino from Baja Wide Open Advetures for some offroad race action. See the dust fly as Bob straps in and hits the test track with cool music and scenes from Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade “Buzzards of Greenhill”. Also here is an insane clip of XC host Rat Sult dragging his new V8 sand rod at Glamis dunes Ca. Another good fit thanks to the local Cabo buzzards and our friends at RIVE.
After the break the action returns to the deck of the “Incognito” for more world class hookups with Bob and the boys landing and releasing 2 more Marlin for the X CAMS! After the sun sets its over to the resort for a special look at the nightlife in Cabo with Malabara-an exotic fire dance team-performing. Slow camera shutter speeds capture the flowing fire action as the dancers spin fire to music from island irie legend Eddy Grant doing his song “Everything Irie”. Cool hot stuff on Nikki Beach!


The show wraps with Bob sampling a tasty seafood feast prepared by Melia cooks accompanied by a festive mariachi band jamming the classic song “La Bamba”!  Viva Mexico! Additional music from Unloco.  See the Action-Hear the Music-Join The X Corps!   J.S.Edmondson –2/06    TrT-29:30

XC - Reno/Tahoe/ X Rocket Shoots
    The Xcorps TV crew returned from the Reno Nevada/Lake Tahoe areas after shooting HD all last week for the upcoming ‘XROCKET’ episode.  High Speed was the goal of this show and after climbing into the cockpit of a Russian made supersonic MIG-21 jet fighter bad weather and engine problems scrubbed the proposed extreme flight piloted by Bob Ray. Repair crews are now working on the plane. Jason and the Xcrew plan to return to Reno for the flight ASAP.
    Fortunately the heavy weather that worked against the MIG flight made for early spring extreme pal powder in the nearby Sierra Nevada Mts.  Xcorps cameras headed for Kirkwood Resort home of Americas deepest powder where the Subaru North American Free skiing Championships were being held.  Xcams rolled the Big Air moves. Jason interviewed skiers amid winter condition weather on the mountain. Thank-You to 4 Reel productions Dana Mackie and  Marketing Director Tracy Miller for helping set up the Kirkwood shoot.

5/3/05-XC Press Release –X Bike Shoots Mt.Baldy CA

All the makings of a classic XC episode came together last week with a BIG winter season here in southern California and 10 more inches of fresh snow falling on local mountains. The Xcorps cameras rolled at the pristinely unique Mt. Baldy with crazy action on the new Winter X Bikes and Slopecycles. By special arrangement with the forward thinking people at Mt.Baldy Resort we released more than 20 of the fun “snowbikes” on the steep terrain So Cal mountain only 45 min.from downtown LA! Currently snowbikes are banned at most resorts in the world- for NO good reason. Riding them is easy and a blast!
This resort is an old school COOL family run gem of a resort with a lift that picks you up in the parking lot and lifts you 3000 feet higher up to the main resort! 
Shooting took place all last week with production assisted by Winter X Bike Kenny Gensel and Matt Hanson along with Slopecycle Frank Auilar. See respective sites for a closer look at the type of sports Xcorps likes to focus on-cutting edge!
 Editing to take 3 weeks. Episode released soon after. This will be another good one!

XC23.) X BIKE – This Xcorps action sports episode rips the snow- So Cal style- with guest host Rat Sult and 12 others riding the next wave of snow bikes -the Winter X bike and Slope cycle- on the sunny slopes of Mt. Baldy located only 45 miles from Los Angeles.  http://www.mtbaldy.com/
The show opens in Washington D.C at the Lincoln memorial with Xcorps X Guru host Eric Ducharme shooting for an upcoming episode. See what fun unique sport will be featured.
Segment one opens with Eric touring D.C. and throwing it back to California where Rat and a dozen other adrenalized speed junkies are carving down the slopes of the 10,064 foot Mt.Baldy near Upland California on snowbikes. This is the second time the Xcorps cams have focused on this cool new sport-which is allowed only on a select few forward thinking ski resorts here in the U.S.
Thanks Mt.Baldy-Robbie Ellingson for your grooviness.
The Xcams follow the action POV style with warm spring conditions requiring only T-shirts on the Xbike and Slope cycle riders. See BMX pro Brian Stuart AKA ‘Bubba’ go insanely big on the Winter X Bike-the new way to slide the slopes. See what it takes to convert any bicycle into a snow bike using the simple kit available at http://www.winterxbike.com/
After the break Rat shows up at the top of Mt.Baldy this time riding a Slope Cycle- a new cross up between a BMX bike and a snowboard. http://www.slopecycle.com/   Remember you saw it 1st on Xcorps! Lots of sweet rides and big crashes here edited with a very cool cinematic style music video from the Maverick Records band the Deftones doing their hauntingly powerful song Minerva. Keystone Colorado ski patrol member Josh Thompson talks about what the Slope Cycle is all about and how easy it is to ride.
After that Prodigy pumps their new song SpitFire with Rat and the X gang carving it up and hucking big! See the biggest crash of the day caught by Xcorps cams with even more action this time cut with a new music video from GoldFinger doing their song Wasted.
Big mosh pit shots here!
The show wraps with Tantric doing their song Breakdown and Bubba stepping up with a few more airborne moves along with a quick look at Eric the XGURU throwing some Disc Golf from the next episode of Xcorps coming soon.  Additional music by Stutterfly.

Xcorps #18.) MTN.BOARD -RELEASED TO AIR

Xcorps #18.) MTN BOARD -  Xcorps host Eric Ducharme and 20 other dirt board skaters roll down the infamous Nate Harrison grade on the backside of Californias Mt. Palomar in this grassroots speed driven episode.
All terrain skating also known as mountain boarding is a hybrid sport that has taken skating to a whole new grass roots level of adrenalized excitement.
Once again Xcorps cameras were the only ones rolling on the action as boarders ripped down the 7 miles of rough fire road on the historic Palomar Mtn which is topped by the famous observatory.  Race rules were simple- fastest time to the bottom of the mountain wins.

The show opens fast and hot as the X Guru and other boarders strap themselves to their specialized skateboards, which have pneumatic tires, and spring suspensions that help handle the bone jarring washboard ride.  Dirt riders roll hard in show scenes backed by Maverick Records band One Side Zero. See the dust and gravel fly as Eric and the guys and one gal-Julian Lewis- slide into the hairpins. Lots of cool POV and multi angle speed shots here along with some brutal wipeouts.  Most riders do wear full protective gear resulting in a good survival rate
.
Eric then talks to race organizer Rob Eakle about the grass roots event and the sponsors that make it happen.  After that Eric intros a new video from our friends at RIVE with the band Skinny Puppy showing some major break skills in their new video/song called Pro Test directed by William Morrison.  Very hip shot and edited film backed with tunes by a world-class band. Check this vid!
The next segment rolls right into another new video from RIVE and Side One Dummy Records with the band Flogging Molly rocking a punk Celtic-Core Irish jig called Drunken Lullabies. See band member and pro skater Matt Hensley huck some sweet street skate moves here along with more dirt skate scenes with Eric from Mt.Palomar. Nice dusty wipeouts too!

After that the X Guru interviews NHG 7 mtn board 1st place race winner Krazy Kris Kidwell and 2nd place winner pro Akoni Kama who talk about their recent gigs. The show wraps with more dirt skate action from Palomar including 4 year old Damian Hurtenstein showing his young board skills followed by a look at some core dirt board action scenes from the video Flirt With Dirt by Damon Krouse.  Additional music by Off By One, Pressure 4-5 and Alien Ant Farm.  Dirt boarders rule the dust!
