Wakeboarding films are alive and well. To prove it, former editor of GrindTV Patrick Wieland teamed up with Slingshot Wake to produce Lipsmack, an epic film featuring the creative side of wakeboarding. Wieland and crew spent almost a year traveling to various locations filming and building over 47 custom rails. As such, the film focuses on the explore, create, and shred aspect of the sport.
Lipsmack features riders Jeff McKee, Oli Derome, Shredtown, Mike Ennen, Jeff House, Steffen Vollert, Nate Perry, Dylan Miller, Brian Reeder, and a few special guests.
The film is available for download on iTunes.
Here are a few photos from the filming of Lipsmack:
