Race Site Initiation:

Aden and I were on the ice as they shot the video above. You can see our awesome mode of transport from about 20sec to about 25sec through the video. An atv and a garden tractor...
Sweet transportation to the WISSA ice track. Heated WAK Shack in the background.
Fun with the the atv on the ice:

PBS covers Worthington Nationals

At the end of December, PBS did a nice program about the 2014 US Nationals at the Worthington Regatta and Unvarnished Music Festival.
Check out the video at this link:

I shoot across the screen near the intro at 2:40, and there is a nice sequence of a start that is shot from a GoPro on the nose of Mark Boersma's board at 7:41. It shows Mark establish position over me and cover (rolls me), so then I have to pump out from under him but give up a lot of speed. Interesting for any racers out there...
