We change it up this week from our normal Amateur Hour, to feature the Texas Tech Collegiate Wake Team in their new film “Flux”.

Words by: Connor Brown

This is a film about the Texas Tech Collegiate Wake Team. To illuminate the world of collegiate wakeboarding in hopes of boosting spotlight and support for the student shredder. We all have an undying passion for the competitive/freeride lifestyle and brotherhood formed by spending hours together on a boat. We filmed this footage over the past year, and I compiled/edited it throughout these past few weeks. I apologize for the sudden ending, but time complications due to the workload from my graduating semester/moving only allowed for a certain amount of editing. For this reason, I have listed all credits below:

Camera Work: Connor Brown, Landan Luna, Rob Muff, Clay Gregory, Nick Garcia.

Directing: Connor Brown

Editing: Connor Brown

Riding: Aaron Tunnel, John Marshall, Rob Muff, Ross Pearce, Jeff Livermore, Clay Kimbell, Clay Gregory, Sean Aaron, Ben Irvin, Addison Reese, Connor Brown.

Special Thanks/This wouldn’t be possible without: Lance Donaldson, Riptank Boardshop, David Muff, Troy Mesa, Texas Tech Wakeboarding, Ryan Allison, Jordan Garcia, Joshua Thomas.

    im sorrybut the multiple boat idea was kinda not cool..

     
  2. Josh Lindsay Says:

    In sync, the multiple boats was actually pretty gnarley, anytime you can get all your bodies on the lake at the same time is a for sure good time

    I have no idea who any of you guys are…BUT this is the sickest, raddest, dopest film I’ve seen!!! Well done Mr. Connor Brown.

    And I feel like the last person mentioned in the credits is probably extremely good-looking.

    Texas Tech- “From Here Its Possible”

     
  14. Nicholas Blaine Says:

  15. Drew Heath Says:

    Props from UNC-Wilmington. You guys are killin it!

     
  16. J Says:

    Cool vid, but cant help but wonder what was going on in the hole @ the begining…

     
  17. Jamie Graff Says:

    Huge props to Texas Tech for shooting enough and taking the time to do this. I went to Clemson and wakeboarded here for 5 years, wish we would have done something like this.

    A lot of the video quality looks pretty good and some of those slow-mo’s were great. The only thing I would have to change next time is if you have footage shoot in 4:3 crop it to be 16:9 so the entire video is 16:9, instead of jumping and back and forth.

    But great job overall ! Keep it up.
