I don’t care how old you were when the first Matrix came out, you were wiping drool off your chin when you saw the bullet-time effect for the first time. Now, over a decade later, the team who brought you Neo and Trinity in all their ass kicking, 360 degree glory, has teamed up with Rip Curl and a team of champion surfers for something totally different. Filming in Malaysia’s Sunway Lagoon Wavepool with a rig of 52 Canon SLR’s, the team shot spectacular footage of Mick Fanning and Steph Gilmore doing what they do best, shredding waves. Timeslice Films and Rip Curl were able to pull off an impressive shoot, giving fans a glimpse of what it’s like to be the world’s best, from every angle imaginable. The project wasn’t without its casualties though – a couple of Macbooks plus half a dozen hard drives gave their life to bring you this goodness.
Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.
I love longboarding around NYC– even though it scares the bajesus out of me after seeing a few close calls. Great video on the craft and culture in NYC.
It’s been four years since charity: water started with the crazy idea that everybody on the planet should have clean water to drink. Since then and thanks to everyone who has donated, they’ve helped over 1 million people in 17 countries. Pretty awesome right? This September though they’re going even bigger, and they need our help. If you read this site, you know how much I care about this issue! Go watch the incredible video and get your campaigns started.

Plastiki (the crazy boat carrying my friends crossing the Pacific Ocean) was constructed using 12,500 plastic bottles. The crew is not far from Sydney and they want to get 12,500 pledges to beat waste before they get there. Let’s not let them down. Go, Take Action Now and make the pledge (and then please, tell the world).

Update: We did it, and in less than 24 hours. THANK YOU!
Friends, family, complete strangers,
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel through rural Tanzania. While I was there, I was able to witness firsthand the difference clean drinking water can make for a community.
I took the pictures below. People used to wade into this disgusting swamp to get their water several times throughout the day, or lower buckets into the muddy mess. It’s unreal.
We’ve all heard about it non-stop, but I needed to see it with my own two eyes. It’s unexplainable and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to keep helping.
Last year we built one well together, this year let’s go for two. That will serve 500 people clean drinking water.
Happy birthday to me,
