Picaresque

June 27, 2009

Longboards are more my style. Sure the shortboarders party in Hawaii and get all the glory, but longboarders have a mellower, more easy-going scene that I better relate to. It also doesn’t hurt that I live within an 1-2 hr drive of some of the world’s most famous longboard spots. I need to take surfing back up someday. Maybe when I have a lil’ grom of my own to push into waves.

Anyway, this is a trailer for Picaresque

“…[a] collaboration project between High Seas Films and Flesh Profits Nothing. [It’s] about unveiling an unseen (and unappreciated) side of longboarding. Between the unique camera angles and editing, a new spin on “surf music,” and choice locations, Picaresque is a step into the new generation of surfing. Shot in Super 16mm film and High- Definition, the project took the crew around the globe, stopping in Australia, California, Florida, France, Mainland Mexico, New England, New York, and Costa Rica, presenting a range of backdrops, cultural interactions and wave faces.”

The DVD was released recently and they are just about to finish up their screening tour in July.
