The Gripboard

The GripBoard offers a faster and more maneuverable ride than conventional body boards. The GripBoard is a molded, foam-injected board with a patented "grip" that makes turning the board simple (no leaning over the board and onto the rails).

The molded fins on the bottom of the GripBoard create wave compression to push the board forward with power and control.

The shaped nose of the GripBoard lets you duck-dive back through the wave at the end of your ride and easily go through the waves on your way back out. The result is a smoother, faster ride that can cut in any direction on any wave.

I Try Stupid Things

Sam Buckle's latest offering, I Try Stupid Things, sees Sam focusing his keen editing skills and love for crazy waves almost entirely on Cornwall, and he has captured some amazing looking slab, wedge and backwash footage.

The film is also very strong on DK action throughout and features a ripped section by Aidan Salmon, along with some shocking footage of Kirstin Prisk kicking out the tail in nothing but his underpants.

Overall there is a very 'up close and personal' feel to a lot of the action, which is guaranteed put a big fat smile on the face of your average adrenaline junky.

The Sin City-style editing techniques are not only beyond anything you'll have seen in a UK bodyboarding DVD, they are way more advanced than many international bodyboarding DVDs. Sam's put some serious time into this project and it's paid off.

Running time: Approx. 45 minutes plus bonus sections.
