Next Project



In my youthful days, I painstakingly spent hours going through VHS tape and then using a camera and a vcr; I stitched together a wobbly, shaking masterpiece featuring my surfing and poor editing to boot!

These past few years, I have uncovered a lot of old footage spread across VHS and Super 8 film. So I am starting the process of getting the old media converted to digital format. With this being done, I can edit the poor parts out (which will be a lot) and concentrate on putting together the best parts for people to enjoy.

This is a snapshot of some of the old films:

There is the Sundek Classic with myself, Scott Brill, Jim Hogan, Todd Martin, and John Holeman surfing. There is also some of the demo performed by Rodney Mullins doing some freestyle skating.

There is skateboarding at several ramps and surfing by myself, John Holeman, and Kelly Slater.

To be honest, I have never done any editing with our modern software so this should be a learning process for me. If anyone has, and finds one program better than others (and easier!) then please let me know!

  1. Hi! I can relate to you. I have so much film that I need to convert and haven’t. I think it’s great that you’re doing it. It’ll be worth the effort. 🙂

      I received an e-mail that the film has been converted so I can not wait to see what it looks like. And select some more to convert as well!

      And Vashti…Man, did we dodge a bullet! We got hammered a bit up here in Cocoa Beach and Orlando but nothing like the northern part of the state. It must have been nice to see it drift past you all as it churned over the Bahamas to your east.
