Shot on OneWheel!

We challenged long time Burton Snowboards cinematographer, Aaron Hooper, to push the creative limits while filming on Onewheel. The shots Aaron was able to create in two days of filming are unreal.

Shot on Onewheel x DJI Ronin x Sony A7sii x Cannon EF 16-35 F/2.8L Lens

From Aaron:
“The Onewheel allows you to get creative. It’s an extremely versatile camera tool. You can do leading shots, tracking shots following shots, slow moving sliders, fast moving sliders, pick a line and you can do the longest dolly ever.”

“We all know the moves that we want to accomplish but yet it take all these tools. You have to set this up (motions at gear), then break that down then set that up (motions at more gear) then break that down. Within 30 minutes you have so many shots in the bag because you’re just zipping all over the place and you’re not even breaking a sweat. You’re really just standing there."

“One of the shots I really started envisioning was this ground cineflex shot. You know we’ve all seen the cineflex shot where the heli is spinning around a subject and you get that background rotating with the subject in focus. I knew I’d be able to do that with a Onewheel - not having a track and being able to do organic lines and arcs. I think one of my favorite shots from this project is this one of these cineflex type shots we got in the mountains. You’re justing spinning around the subject - It’s beautiful. And to be able to accomplish that with a Ronin and an affordable Onewheel compared to the other camera tools out there - it gets me excited and I feel like we are just scratching the surface.”

Malibu Boats, the global leader in watersports towboat sales, has announced its next market disruption with the new 21 VLX Wakesetter for 2017. The 13-seat 21 VLX comes equipped with every Malibu innovation for making world-class wakes and huge, customizable surf waves. The package price of $79,995 includes a Malibu trailer, bimini top and a cover. The 21 VLX comes delivered ready to tow right to the dock.

Malibu did not leave anything out to offer the new 21 VLX package at this price point. On the contrary, Malibu equipped this new boat with its full Integrated Surf Platform, including the wake-optimized hull design, Quad Hard Tank Ballast system, Power Wedge II hydrofoil and the revolutionary Surf Gate that turns a big wake into an endless, surfable wave. All of that comes standard, along with the renowned Malibu dual-screen digital Command Center to control it all.

Beneath its stunning good looks, the new 21 VLX offers the unsurpassed Malibu engineering and craftsmanship that ensure many years of reliable watersports enjoyment. Standard equipment includes Malibu’s famous G3.5 tower and a drop-in hard cooler.

Spice up that V-drive with the all new Ronix Wake Shaper!!

Wakesurf Shaper

Easily mounts to both starboard and port side for a bigger, cleaner wake on either side. With Wakesurf Shaper you can now get into the modern day surf game if you have an older boat, or if you have a newer boat you can replicate a tube rivaling your favorite break in the South Pacific.

In 2013, we launched a new brand - Eight.3 (one gallon of water = Eight.3 pounds).

We had 1 goal - make boating easy...

A NEW WAY TO MAXIMIZE YOUR WAKE MOUNT TO STARBOARD SIDE TO SURF ON THE PORT SIDE MOUNT TO PORT SIDE TO SURF ON THE STARBOARD SIDE

 

2 years after the inception of Eight.3, we have come up with something that revolutionizes the outside of your boat - The Wakesurf Shaper. This device easily mounts to the lower/back point of the starboard or port side of your boat hull for a premier surf wake on either side. We have tested from every aspect of boating - waterski boats, crossover boats, older V-Drives, newer V-Drives, - one thing is constant, this is a game changer. Never has there been this type of aftermarket device that can so easily be mounted to the side of the hull - that makes this kind of difference. With a built in handle it is easy to move to either side of your boat, and is best primed with some loaded Eight.3 ballast.

 

SHIMS

Every hull shape is different - some are mostly flat and don’t require a shim. Others have a step hull and require a 1” shim - other boats have a more pronounced step and need a 2” shim. Be sure to measure the furthest back/lowest corner of your hull to gauge what set up you need.

We will also have the gear you need form Hyperlite, H.O., Ronix, Liquid Force, and many more major brands. March 17-19 in the old Ernst building on West Broadway.
