XC 26.) WAKE-2 The Xcorps is based in San Diego for good reason-So Cal is the birthplace of many genre action sports including the wild gymnastically inclined kicker sport of wakeboarding- the focus of this show episode featuring some of the best wakers on the planet ripping for the Xcams! The show opens with special guest host Crystal Fambrini leading the way to super scenic Lake San Vicente near San Diego where she meets Dave Williams from http://www.wakeworld.com/ launching 2 brand new Malibu Wakesetter towboats. Nice.
Watching the glassy water pro riders Jimmy Wolf, Sean Obrien and Mike Schwenne are smiling. They know a good day was at hand since the Xcorps had the entire lake secured just for them and their best moves! Very nice-total wake control on a warm November day in So Cal. Fresh tunes and a new vid from Maverick Records band Story of the Year mix up the Big Air action.
Check out shot after shot of insanely big smooth moves by all three-world class wakeboarders just having fun for the Xcorps HD cams. Music and some film noire from Select Records band Monday Morning c/o Rive video pump up the segment.
Crystal talks to Sean Obrien about the day and what it takes to pull those moves and then intros a wild video from the new punk girl down from Canada-HRM Records Bif Naked doing her tune Letdown.
Check the high production value in this music film produced by the Canada Music Fund. Go Bif Go!
After that Crystal-looking golden behind the wheel of the Mailu- opens it up for rider Jimmy Wolf who hucks and spins trails through the sky above the lake. Insane action shots c/o XC shooter John Porter being tube towed behind the boat. Then in a new product segment Crystal introduces the audience to a new way to ride the water on Banshee Riverboards.
The footage says it all but the concept involves the sport of skim boarding but on rivers instead of the ocean using bungee cords which harness the rivers current launching the riders upstream over 30 MPH! Right on Idaho! See http://www.bansheeriverboards.com/ Cool. Music by the Paul Oakenfold and his song Motion.
After the break its back to the wakeboard action at Lake San Vicente where rider Mike Schwenne gets his moves slow-mowed to show the skill factor. Was that a toeside railey with an indy grab? The show closes with Crystal and rider Sean Obrien pulling more sweet moves in the Cali sunshine.
Additional music by DRT band Aphasia and their song Flatline.
