How Nau?

A few months ago I went on a little quest to ski, paddle a river, and surf all in the same day. I forgot to actually link to the resulting movie when it was finally posted on the Nau website. After seeing my sad first attempt at skiing, you may think that I "conveniently" forgot.

It was an amazing spring day and I was happy to be a part of it. One of my chums, Markarito, actually made the video and I contributed some drawings (and comic relief) to the production. The surfing sequence at the end is a pretty desperate attempt to catch a wave with the sun going down and angry storm surf tumbling in. Doc was there, he can vouch.

PS - Finally back from Nica. Getting back to work and nursing a weird hip injury...

Perhaps your hip injury is a delayed reaction to your ski adventures.

Hope you heal quickly amigo.

That was excellent, bro. Must've been a cool thing to be a part of.

Wow your a shitty skier. I'm glad you guys made it back.

Mick said...

Really enjoyed it. Cool coastline, great people. Crap skier, can't understand still why no barrel yet (?)

And no I don't have a Wacom, but my son is working on me to get one.

I had to pause it to soak in all that heavy philosophizing that was being dropped on the ride to the beach.

Daniel said...

Fantastic! Was this whole trip within a single watershed?

Chum said...

Thanks guys. It was a cool challenge. As far as the watershed is concerned, I think Oswald West had a different watershed feeding the beach than the Mt. Hood into the Sandy River. But it's all pretty close!

Cool idea, nicely filmed and edited movie, but I feel for the dog.

Chum said...

Really? The dog seemed pretty happy to me... Am I missing something? Did you think his paws got too cold?

Realigning your chakras....nice.

The footage of the pristine NW hurts my soul. Will be there soon.

Excellent illustrations.

Noticed a certain towel in use at the beach.

Let me know when you're ready to work on your skiing.
