Spencer Norris 2013 Film Reel – ‘Wanderman’

I first heard of Spencer Norris back in 2007 when Robbie Carter slid his first full-length wake DVD into my Playstation II and said, “Watch this, it’s a video edited by my friend Spencer who’s going to do big things”. The movie was shot with a Sony VX-1000, it didn’t matter as Norris’s knack for editing was immediately apparent. He knew wakeboarding and knew how to make it look good. Riders took notice.

A year later I was granted the privilege of meeting Spencer at Derek Grasman’s old residence in Winter Haven, Florida, where we did some brief shooting. This kind of became his home base over the next two or three years as Norris infiltrated the wake scene. His talent opened up doors for shooting wakeboarding’s elite for various industry partners and publications. Read More >

Daniel Grant – Seven Eleven Wakeskate edit by Andy Kolb

Andy Kolb was recently down at Thai Wake Park alongside young Liquid Force phenom, Daniel Grant, who decided he wanted to focus on wakeskating for the day. What ensued was a candy and potato chip fueled wakeskating fit that ended up being one of the most intense skate edits that we’ve ever seen. I can only imagine what Daniel’s scheming on his wakeboard these days…
