The Punta San Carlos Video

These have been done many times with many awesome angles. Hope you enjoy mine.

We took like 50 gigs of video and this is what I came up with. Lots of awesome stuff from each rider didn't make the 6 minute version. If I had all the time in the world I would make each individual a yearbook of the waves they caught.

Hope you all enjoy watching it a hundredth the amount I enjoyed making it.

That was awesome! Captured every bit of the excitment of the trip. The song choice with it's range of tempos and fury is perfect. Sick!

Sweet vid Aaron, all the GP angles is killer!!

I saw airfare from Norfolk to San Diego is not too bad at the moment at just over $200!

I would love to get out there for the AWT Cactus Cup?!

Luke -- glad you liked it. Somehow we lost all the footage from the drive down and whatnot, but I think it worked out as a PSC video by itself.

Bill -- the place is awesome as you know, I've got a summer of weddings so I can't make it to the tour stop. I'm sure it will be well worth it...

Have you ever considered a career in media arts? That was such a fun video; nice editing, great music (esp song #2) and that last shot of Lucas was hilarious.

PS. can you post a video playlist?

Hey Thuy (vi?),

Would be a dream to do this kind of stuff for a living, but I'm sure the supply is high and the demand, not so much! haha!

Song 1 - Roundabout by Yes
Song 2 - How You Like Me Now by The Heavy

Initially I was going to do Roundabout for the whole video, but I got tired of editing to it and my girlfriend had the heart to tell me a change would be good.

I think you could make a video of grass growing at a drying paint convention to The Heavy and it would make for a badass feeling video.
