Over 10 years ago, when I was skiing for @MasterCraftBoats I had the opportunity to film with the talented Mark Bame and Eric Jeffcoat. At the time, I didn't know it, but that trip ended up inspiring me to ultimately pick up a camera and learn how to create. Just one year after that shoot (see edit here, its quite insane, actually: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-MMs3urFuw&t=146s&ab_channel=MasterCraftBoats) I was injured and life took a huge pivot.
Since that project, over a decade ago, I've been wanting to shoot a completely slow motion water ski short film. But Phantom cameras had always been too expensive ($100,000 +), and I could never find the budget to pull it off. Last year, @Freefly Systems released their super slowmo WAVE camera, and I maxed the credit card just to get my grimy paws on one. So, with camera in hand, the best water ski company behind me and the best water skiers in the World in front of my lens, the goal was to build on those MasterCraft projects from years past, that had originally sparked the madness within me.
The all-new Vapor boot rewrites what is possible in waterski footwear by creating the pinnacle in hybrid boot technology. For the first time, a rigid lower skeleton is connected to a Carbitex upper cuff to create the perfect blend of connection and control. The rigid lower skeleton gives a skier complete control over the edges of their ski while the Carbitex upper cuff allows a skier to move over their ski with ease to find balance and connection to the water. A Boa dial completes the package to give a precise fit every single time. Anyone that’s ever owned a Vapor boot in the past now has a reason to upgrade to our latest technology, strap it on and see for yourself the difference, skiing is believing.
It’s the end of the season as we know it, this episode marks the end of the second season of Spraymakers and thanks to all that have tuned in! The boys felt it fitting to talk about the end of the waterski season and what the off-season looks like.
