Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan
Fun footage of my summer in HR.
I swam my ass off that summer to get some of the water cam shots. No GoPro kids, just a heavy waterhousing and a boogie board with my trusty yellow helmet.
Fun story: So I'm swimming around the hatchery on a 3.7 day filming the action. I'm in the hornets nest with sailboard flying everywhere. So close calls but everybody was stoked to see a guy in the water filming..they kept asking who I was shooting for.
The current rips in the gorge and I was staring to swim towards the eddy, but getting tossed in the swells...this guys sails up to me, I'm thinking he's gonna be pissed because I'm right in the lineup, but instead he Stoked, he asked who I was filming for, I said 'me' he said killer did you get that new move I've been working on....I don't even know what to call it yet. He then told to grab his back footstrap and he pulled me back into the eddy where I was able to position myself again for another swim in the river. The rider Intorduced himself as Frederick Steinick.....super cool guy, and an incredible athlete. So cool to meet one of the super bomb bad Gorge rockers of that time. Got to meet Mitch Gingrich with Frederick in a coffe shop where I showed them them footage I shot...they liked it and commented that they liked the angles I was shooting....was different than others...kind of a cool compliment comming from those guys.
That's my story.
Wonder if those fellas are still riding?
