In a word...it is sick!!!!
F4A (Free 4 All) features the usual suspects such as Rob Struharik,
Parks, Shane, Chad Sharpe, Kyle Schmidt, Brian Grubb, Danny
Harf and new young wakeskate sensation Tim Kovacich.
It features some of the most progressive riding i have ever
seen on film.
Shit like crazy inverted off axis grabed shifty's (not a flip
- just crazy grabs upside down and behind and then back) Just
watching it gives you a nice warm feeling inside, you guys
know like ' your happy place '
Also, Brian Grubb is making an absolute mockery of the skill
required on a wakeskate. In this video, like others, he makes
huge 1 footer wake jumps look really easy, 360 flips, slides
everything that pro wakeboarders hit with bindings, wake to
wake 360's etc.
But Brian Grubb blew me away with an attempt to land a huge,
stalled, wake to wake KickFlip, which he did land but couldn't
hold. Still one of the highlights of this Vid.
Anyone who has been keeping an eye on the progression of wakeskating
knows the difficulty in attempting a one wake kickflip, the
skaters out there will know the respect his effort deserves.
The latest Wakeboarding Mag has Brian on the cover smacking
a massive 1 footer of a double up. He is the sickest!
But the finale of the Video sees the boys hitting a 25' incline
slider gap to a huge truck parked on land (with a pool built
on the roof) to a 25' decline slider. Everyone fails their
first attempts with kyle Schmidt blowing his knee and Shane
not making the decline transition and landing off the truck
onto the ground. Of course Parks is the exception nailing
the monster on his first shot at it. The crew step it up after
this with the coolest sliding you will see.
