The Progression Of Wakeboarding

February 2, 2012

Defy trailer 2. The Danny Harf project from Sean Kilgus on Vimeo.

Every now and then you run across a video that inspires the heck out of you and brings back amazing memories. For someone like myself who watches a gazillion YouTube, Hulu and random videos a month it’s rare that you see anything you ever really come back to, much less write about.

Danny Harff’s documentary, Defy is simply incredible. Even the trailer is amazing. I grew up on the water, and loved water sports. My first word was “boat” and by age 3 my dad had me knee boarding. When I say I love wake boarding I don’t mean I’m just a fan of the sport, but I loved to ride. I missed 64 days of school my senior year because we’d skip class and head to the lake for that smooth weekday water. Good times.

This documentary captures everything that’s great about the sport, and all the amazing ways it’s evolved over the past 20 years. Not to mention it’s one of the most amazing soundtracks ever, coupled with simply stunning cinematography.

We’ve come a long way from the WakeSkurfer.
