What's up NUB NATION!! Today I went for the Van Life surf experience when I went surfing. Heated up the Dodge Promaster, changed in her & treated it like I was on the road trip. Stoked on how Big Rob operates & so stoked to take her out of New Jersey & on the novelty wave dream run. The waves today weren't amazing for most surfer 's but I was ON IT!!!

What a great wind swell and fun floater.  I went to a talk last night,given by Jack McCoy( a deeper shade of blue) and Wayne Lynch, dream chasers like you. I was dismayed at how heavy Jack's high speed camera was. We are so fortunate  with our light digital cameras. Check out my underwater videos Cottesloe fish 2016-2017 etc. on Youtube. Surfing here and Perth, Western Australia has mushroomed since I started surfing single fins in the seventies. On my twin fin I was able to swerve like on a skateboard to build momentum.  I put two sets of wheels on the back of my skate board to be able to carve like a surfboard.  I enjoy watching your ups and downs.  I get shivers up my legs every time you come to grief on the rocks. I came to grief on the rocks at Jake's Point, Kalbarri and at Cathedral Rocks, Rottnest island. A bloody mess both times! I suppose that is what life is all about.

All Weather/Wave Ben: the second shooting from the Solo Shot was less shaky. Wonder if you added weight to the tripod to minimize the wind effect. Put a few Gravy Stickers on your Solo Shot and engraving to CLAIM it; that is if warranty allows. Great second footage of a man alone in the lineup among 4' chop pulling rotations with INDEFATIGABLE stoke.
Ben Gravy
Ben Gravy - 3 years ago
Yeah the first half of the session the wind was about 40mph!! Then it calmed down and turned a little more west. It can handle about 25mph before it starts shaking. I have a sand bag for it!!

Wow ! You make it look so easy to surf 2 foot windslop ! You could probably make my home break of Captiva island look like an actual wave !
phu cue
phu cue - 3 years ago
Ben Gravy the best you can hope to see Captiva island is for a cat 3 or bigger to sit out in the gulf for a couple days and send 6-8 swell from the SW with lite east wind ! Doesn't happen often but when it does it can be much more hollow than the east coast of Florida ! I've seen carloads of Dade county surfers come over with one board and break it from not timing the paddle out ! Its a shallow sandbar where you can catch the wave of your life or a beating you'd be ashamed to admit happened to you in the gulf ! Look at it on google maps ! Sanibel/Captiva islands look like a reverse j ! Oh yeah the most common good swells are from the NW with NE winds ! Killer rights ! But don't go left even if it looks make able from the beach ! Its not ! At low tide if its head high the impact zone can be like 2' deep ! And the sand bars can be pact like concrete from all the broken shells !

Wow new solo shot is shaking like crazy is it the wind? Maybe need to bury the feet of the tripod. I had a 1978 Chinook Newport and I rigged a bitchin shower I used to be able to shower after a session hot water. You waterproof the floor for a reason. My new breakfast for the last month or so has been coffee and gravy LOL

Was checking with a local dive shop owner who buys Henderson wetsuits to see if he can order me a Ben Gravy Hyperflex wetsuit later this year through his Canadian distributor...we're working on it Ben!...wish me luck! That was an amazingly rad session on that new stick as it looked like, to the untrained eye, like me, that there was nothing surfable in that frothy mess...yet you pulled off a truly gnarly session there Mr. Gravy! YEEWWW! Mr. Soloshot seemed to work great...but you need to try my weight pendulum idea for wind stabilization to see if that works...footage kinda jittery as you well know. Fun with the fam Tucker and Sammy Upper...lol!...and Jordan ( Hi Jordan! )...good times, eh? NNFTW!!! Cheers, John ;)

The camera shake from the wind might be minimized by hanging weight from the center of the tripod if it has a spring loaded hook like most tripods have. Since you are always shooting from a beach, check out a quick sandbag that you can fill on the fly and hang from this hook if it exists on your tripod ... if not, look into such a tripod ... makes a huge difference.
Jerseyboards
Jerseyboards - 3 years ago
Ben Gravy since the shake is minimal you could probably stabilize the clips in final cut or iMovie. It would crop it a bit but could help.
Ben Gravy
Ben Gravy - 3 years ago
I actually have a big sand bag hanging down off the middle. I'll show you guys next video, but the wind effects just the top portion of the cammera. Anything over 25mph is tough

epic veelog, per usual. What do you think about taping your good camera on top of the soloshot and setting zoom for a better picture maybe, or maybe not. yew!
Ben Gravy
Ben Gravy - 3 years ago
I think I just need to use the 4k function on the soloshot and maybe the medium view instead of wide, but when i starting using 4k before my cam broke so I'm scared!!

Janene PSS that is cool John Egan is helping you with your vlog, that is very nice of him, I also watched his seagull video, it made me laugh so hard I shared it on my Facebook. I also watched his slushie ski contest videos and that was pretty funny too, along with some others.
Kirsten Courtney
Kirsten Courtney - 3 years ago
That is cool you are starting to make videos on your channel. I watched them and they are good for starting out, I see your improvements as you go along. I have no idea how to make a video for YouTube but would like to try someday, maybe this summer when my daughter is home from college and can help, she's a film major. I'm not sure we have all the equipment we would need as she rents most of her equipment from the college and won't have access in the summer when she's home, but we'll see what we can do. Last spring we did get a pretty cool video of a bird that flew into my van and landed on her ice skating team bag right near the pirate logo. Other than that I'm not sure what I would post about though. I watch Life With Beans and The Rybka Twins sometimes, they live in Perth so I guess that's kinda near you. I also watch Sabre Norris and the Norris Nuts over in Sydney. I love how you have so many beaches and awesome playgrounds there! (Not that my family is playground age anymore but I still like viewing the cool stuff some of them have.) Maybe you could have one of your friends film you surfing in one of your upcoming vlogs. Your Aussie accent is just fine, but I agree BG's is more over the top, lol. :) PS I usually do my taxes early too but this year I have just not been motivated but time is running out so I guess I better rip that bandaid off today! :)

Hi Janene, I'm fine just procrastinating getting my taxes done. Yuk! I keep seeing people trying Vegemite and everyone saying they are eating it wrong, so at least I know you're supposed to spread a small amount on toast with butter. :) I'm curious if I would like it because I like some foods a lot of people don't like such as umeboshi and seaweed because I lived in the Philippines for 3 years as a kid and my best friend was Okinawan. Maybe I will order some on Amazon and try it out. I'm also curious if it is good for digestion as I have colitis. I love reading your comments and always read them with an ozzy accent in my brain. (You also type ozzy very well so makes it easy.) :) I've been binge watching Bondi Rescue this past week and I feel like I've been to Australia now! Do you live near Sydney?
