A little over a year ago, the passion, progression and creativity level was at an all time high at “the farm” located in Groveland, FL. The farm was the type of place where you go to spend an afternoon and end up staying for a week. There was a certain energy about the place that felt magical. If we had a cool idea, we just did it. Everyone was excited to get dirty and put in crazy amounts of work for the cause. That cause being a little thing we enjoy doing called wakeskating.
We started working on the video seen below around March of 2014. Guys came from everywhere to get clips for the video and do work. Tad Matthews and Kyle Walton were not only the filmers but also the brains behind the operation. Ian Reid and myself had the opportunity to document it with photos. It was almost a surreal experience getting to ride with, shoot photos and become friends with so many of the people that I’ve looked up to for a long time.
After about two months of filming we had to vacate the farm. It was a bummer because we were really just getting started and had a lot of momentum. The video is still pretty awesome but I can only imagine what it could’ve been. I’m not sure if it’s possible to ever recreate the special energy and environment that was the farm but I’d love to try. I’ve been putting away some money so that one of these days I can buy a property, dream it and do it. Thanks so much to everyone involved. I’d like to especially thank Tad and Kyle who have selflessly given so much to help progress this weird thing we love to do.
