almost drowning in Parker, Arizona
getting to surf and film in Fiji (Numotu Island is insane)
Rusty invented a new style of shirt in Australia
when Jeff Mckee’s sky diving instructor fell asleep on the plane ride up to jump
I think the best part is having Greg and Scott Filming us. The fact that the are not from the wake industry and are making this film is what is going to make it so sick they see things that we don’t. they pick up on all the little stylish things that we always forget about. It’s going to be the slickest movie ever
