fresh fruit for rotten vegetables...
I just got hold of a copy of Steve Cleveland's new movie (the guy that made Another State of Mind). It's called Fresh Fruit For Rotten Vegetables and is available from Xtreme distribution. First impressions are pretty darn good. It doesn't try too hard to be an arty film, more of a classic surf vid with an upbeat soundtrack, a fair split of progressive and traditional longboarding, some shortboard, fishes and hulls thrown in and waves from Cali, Oz and some cranking barrels in Indo.
Highlight for me was Chad Marshall's fin first hang heels (truly mental). There is some stellar logging from Jai Lee, Knost, Pickle, The Marshalls and CJ Nelson. If prog is your bag, Bonga gets big barrels (great sentance no?) Harley Ingleby rips and Taylor Jensen pulls a couple of christ/rocket style airs on a 9 footer. Nice to see some new footage of Tudor too.
Well worth the price of admission!
