Danny Harf, Shawn Watson, Shane Bonifay and Kevin Henshaw head to Oz for the filming of Defy

Words by Garrett Cortese

Didn’t get enough of the “Defy the Odds… and the Oz” story from the July issue of Alliance Wakeboard Magazine? Fair enough, we’ve got you covered. Herein lies some of the extras from the one-of-a-kind trip taken to Australia last March by Danny Harf, Shawn Watson, Shane Bonifay and Kevin Henshaw. The boys went down to film for Defy, which has become the video epic in waiting for most of the industry and its fans since it was first announced as a project at Surf Expo 2009.

Over the last few years as it has been put together piece by piece, Defy has gone through some different phases. It started out as a “Dan-umentary” to document Danny’s riding, as well as some with his crew. As the project grew though, the exclusivity seemed to shrink. Throughout the whole process though, everybody involved has been very good about keeping things hush-hush and working their asses off to get the best possible results.
