THE MOTOR-SURFER

.........................................................

Documenting life during the first attempt at restoring a vintage motorcycle.

Similar to the zen -like feeling that is realized through surfing,
motorcycle repair can elevate the mind to a meditative state that eludes time and space...
Meaning I obsess over it, get frustrated, yell, laugh at myself and overall waste a lot of time.

Brazilian Kick-Flip "HiiiiiYAAAAAAH" - First in surfing history?


Whaaaa?!? So a while back Volcom had a surf contest awarding $10,000 to the first person (with proof) to successfully land a kickflip (a staple skateboard maneuver). I remember seeing several video attempts, but no one had won and after a while I lost interest. Just the thought of all those fins spinning between my legs doesn't sound like something fun to learn, maybe that's why it never gained much popularity. Stumbled upon this video while trolling the runamuckvisuals website.
Brazilian Ricardo Wendhousen landing (not very clean though) a kickflip... All that Jiu Jitsu probably helps with the fancy foot-work. Well done lad.
