Isaac and Leslie send some love to the Outer Banks(video)

Check out this little, non-branded video I filmed and edited featuring team rider Seth Barrick, along with Kim Diggs, Mark Dawson, Cheyne Magnusson, Ricky Whitlock, and Dege O'connell!
I'm stacking a lot of clips of the fam for a full length, Ability video production that will be completed down the road.  Stay tuned for a trailer some time in 2013...

A little more Issac!

Graciously received this photo of  teamster Jeff Myers from photographer Jon Carter during the Isaac swell and wanted to include it in a post!  I believe it was taken at Pea Island's 'New Inlet' on the 1st or 2nd day of the Isaac swell. Thanks for the capture Jon!!!

'da boys shredding at home!

Granted the waves weren't as epic as predicted for the Leslie and Isaac swells, good times were plenty over the last couple weeks on the Outer Banks! Photographer Michelle Conner captured long time teamers Bradley and Christian at the playground.

Nate Thompson surfaces in Wilmington,NC !

Photographer Chris Frick and team rider Nate Thompson nailed several photos during the recent Isasac and Leslie swells in Wilmington, NC.  I haven't heard from Nate in months and thought he dropped of the radar, and then boom!  He comes through blowing up with a bunch of photos shredding in our "Forward Thinking" tee shirt.  *side note* Photographer Chris Frick has really developed into a great photographer!  Keep up the amazing work Chris!
