Picaresque Film Review

This is a pretty cool review from Mattie at Oregon Surf Shop.

Just to note before anyone gets the idea I'm just shamelessly plugging a new video to sell it, anyone that knows me even remotely well will tell you that I am NOT a longboarder by any means. In fact, most of my close friends would describe me as the anti-longboard, even though you'll find me at most of the longboard contests around the Pacific Northwest. The anti-longboard side of me especially comes out when I'm forced to watch most longboard films. Anyone around the shop can tell you a list of reasons why I can't stand "The Present".

That being said, the mostly-longboard video Picaresque has rocketed itself to one of my favorite videos of recent times. While it's not qutie as jaw dropping as Days of the Strange, and it doesn't make you want to go travel to indo because you saw some pro get barreled and do an air in the same wave, it does entertain. It even made me sort of want to grab a classic longboard and slide away! Almost.

It is however an extremely well done longboard/fish video, with a killer soundtrack and awesome ciminatography. The soundtrack really does put this movie in a class of its own. Unlike most of the recent popular longboard videos, this one doesn't make you feel like you're stuck in an endless elevator with Alex Knost and a quiver of unridable heavy boards to be used on miniature waves. This film also seems to do a good job of leaving the hipster vibe out of the mix, something that has been proven hard to do lately. And to top off the good things about this film, there is NO narration, whatsoever!

All in all, what I'm trying to say is this shortboarder gives a 5 star rating to a video I would never have watched unless it had been thrown in the shop dvd player.

Japan: Randomness!

The road into Kawazu, on the Izu peninsula.

Amazing caves.

Jon Wegener and I wondering why people don't visit Japan for it's natural beauty.

We found this sand dune. Here's Matt Williams eating shit on a boggie.

Japan: 24 hours a day.

This must have been the longest day of my life. Up at 6am to surf Chiba, on the road to Tokyo to run around the city all day, then to our good friend Luli's club Le Baron De Paris to show the film. And, of course some live music from BLORR.

Matty and Yuta, post surf. Loggin dayz.

Adam and Chris- first surf in the land of the rising sun.

Rappongi, where it never ends and nothing ever closes.

Trace, Kristian Peterson, Yuki jazzing the glass at Le Baron

C.Wach, Harrison Roach and Matty Chojnacki were all in attendance for the film premier.

T-Stone and DJ Uncle Mike spinnin that junk you love at Le Baron. Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas walked in and supposedly just walked right out.

Cookie on the subway. Unlike NYC, you could eat sushi off the floor of these subway cars.

A walk through a shrine in the busy Shibuya part of Tokyo.


Ending the day riding the subway back to our hotel.
