“Getting old isn’t so bad. It’s actually pretty cool. Although you get sore more easily, you get smarter and wiser. That’s where I got this “wise” idea to patch together some one to two to three year old clips I’ve been sitting on like a troll does his gold. Since bodyboarding is sort of a poor man’s sport, and I can’t afford to pay people to film me, I had to coax my friends into trading getting barreled themselves in exchange for sitting on the rocks, sand, or even in the water to shoot clips of me so I could eventually show it all off to people on the web to boost my self-esteem.”
“So, as you can see, people sweated in the sun, and I donated some flesh to the reef, in the making of this two minute montage. I’m not saying you have to like it, but I think it warrants some appreciation because of these reasons. If not for me, then for my friends—Eric Schnitzler at vimeo.com/withinfilms, Wade “Wade-O” Saunders, Robbie Crawford at gopro.com, Matthew Tanaka at 662 Ride Shop Hawaii, and Chad Stickney at HCW Waterhousings—that did all of the hard work.
Special thanks to Custom X Bodyboards | customx.com + PMA for crafting the best boards, my friends at Duck Village Outfitters (DVO) as well as da boys at The JerseyMobb thejerseymobb.com.”
I especially have to thank my beautiful wife Chantony for understanding why I sometimes ditch her early in the morning to go jump in the water. Oh yeah, and the music is a snippet from Aesop Rock’s mixtape, “The Blob.”
Cheers to getting older … and more sore” -Evan Fa
