During the 2014 Easter break I was lucky enough to spend a few days at the Rip Curl pro with Joel Parkinson, filming a piece for the car company HSV. The shoot was jammed in the middle of competition which was a big challenge, but Joel was kind enough to allow us a great insight into a life it's easy to envy. This is the first in a series of 4 on HSV's ambassadors with more to come in 2014 and 2015.
A big thanks to Joel Parkinson for allowing such good access during a crucial competition, and also Joel's manager Sean Doherty. Also a big thanks to my Ty Johnson for assisting, and my partner for also graciously accepting impromptu assisting duties. Big thanks to Paul McCosh for the sound mix and adding some nice touches too.
This is the first in a series of 4 videos for Holden Special Vehicles.
