6 MONTHS Digital Release

Ewan Donnachie’s DVD 6MONTHS is eventually available in its digital version thru iTunes. Such a sick movie, if you havent watched it yet, here’s a chance to!

iTunes link might differ from one country to another but here’s one that works:

6Months is a look at what can be achieved in a relatively short period of time; it’s a demonstration of what a lot of hard work can result in; it’s a celebration of travel, adventure, mateship and the incredible waves that were on offer during the Winter of 2011. From early April through until the end of September, Ewan Donnachie chased waves high and low at a frenetic pace, along with good mates Jase Finlay, Damien Martin, Chris James, Nick Gornall and assorted other riders. It was a testing time; last-minute calls, delays, cancelled flights, lost baggage, injuries, unreliable swell patterns and adverse weather conditions were inevitable components of nearly every mission. But the boys put their heads down, committed and reaped the reward of unspoiled perfection. The film provides a rare insight into the lives and mindsets of these free-surfers and the equally dedicated photographers and filmers who document their exploits. It’s not all fame and fortune; it’s very rarely glamorous. But as each and every one will attest, it’s most certainly worth the effort. A film by Ewan Donnachie and Lucas Vazquez, 6Months aims to inspire. Save your coin, get some mates together, do a little research and hit the road to discover what’s out there waiting for you.

THE INSIDE officially available on Youtube for your viewing pleasure

The myth, the legend, the movie that pretty much set the standard for all other movies, the one and only movie you HAVE to watch, it’s bodyboarding’s history and it’s such a good movie.

Quick note & review from Spongercity: Released in 95′ or something, this movie is the shiznitz, it’s got everything you want in a video and it kinda marks the beginning of the ‘modern era’ of bodyboarding with moves and waves of consequence and riders pushing themselves in heavy shit. Sometimes the odd pink and rainbow slick might freak you out but most of the images and action look insane and could easily fit in today’s movies or podcasts. Chad Barba, Paul Roach, Aka Lyman… no one to this day surfs like them. It’s our history but mostly a great movie even including a full girl section and a soundtrack that will please everyone. It’s 1 hour+ and it’s more than a movie, it’s a journey. You need to watch this video for sure.

Spongercity Home Brew DVD ReviewWe got to watch home brew last night, eventually! Super Stoked (Machine) on the DVD! Loved it. Edited by James Kates, filmed by Ryan Mattick and Allan Willson with additionnal titles and artwork by Dav Fox, this DVD is a must have.

The editing is great, punchy, effective and precise, the quality of the images are super good, the angles are original, there are more waves than just nuggans and supers, and the soundtrack is good. What else do you want ?

Oh yeah, the riders, it features Joe Clark, Finlay, Katesy, Putland, T Robinson, Cade Sharp, Sam Bennett, Rigby and more…

The highlights of the video include some remote India perfection, some Blackrock delight, some nuggan stunts, some fun, lots of pleasure and cool titles.

The riders are creative in their ride and having fun and it makes the video breathe and glow. The riding is top notch and the overall feeling you get is that bodyboarding is the coolest thing you can do and it’s damn fun to ride.

Very good DVD to watch before a session to get amped.

Well, that’s it.

ID Boards coming with a full length movie: Relocations

From the ID Boards Movie presentation:
It’s an honour to present of our first international film project as a company. Relocations was an idea that was born out of the desire to show Australia to our friends, Magno and Amaury. These great men are a rich part of our bodyboarding family and they each represent a country or people group that make up the sport we love. By sharing our waves, our strengths and our resources together, we can unite our sport and build the future.
This is the start of an ongoing experiment to prove how valuable our international riders are, and how much fun we can have together. We truly live in an amazing place, and it’s even more amazing when shared. ” Get ready to be Relocated ”
