This week has been a creative week for me. I have designed rash guards/poster for the Waterman League Tahiti SUP exhibition event “STAND UP WORLD TOUR: CONTENDERS” I am going to be down in Tahiti filming all next week and its going to be intense. Below is the design as well as the poster.
On Top of all this. I also entered into a contest for Hurley. It was to design a shirt for ALL TIME LOW, a band that Hurley has been promoting. I figured I would try something different thant the usual montage of randome images and make something dope and with a message at the same time. Below was my Entry.
And to top it all off, Pandora also has a Poster Design contest that I entered. Its about supporting global education of music as well as promoting Pandora. So again I went with simple and effective. Below is the poster.
All and all I have been very creative and excited in these past couple weeks. I am also working on a movie poster with Murray Mile for “FOX HUNT”. I feel its starting to look great and hope to post it up soon. I will be back in Orlando for the month of September so will be looking forward to see what projects come up then.
This is the newest Stand Up Paddle Surfing Video I made for The Waterman League. Its an intense video showcasing some of the best in the sport. You have the talents of Ikaika and Ekolu Kalama, Bonga Perkins, Leeleo Kinimaka, Kainoa Mcgee and Beaupre. Also is The Waterman Leagues own Tristan Boxford and industry leader Robby Naish.
I decided to go with a Wild West Opening just because thats who these characters are, they are the Outlaws right now of the surfing world. SUP right now is growing fast and its breaking the stigma of what is surfings mainstream appeal and these characters are making their presence known.
We will be in the future working on more International Videos as The Waterman League grows. So if your a SUP surfer from over seas, get ready we are going to have a contest for you.
*As an editor. I had to really make the 2nd part of this video just as any other surfing video to showcase the talents in a manor that the public is used to. I threw in a couple of my editing tricks, but the montage over 1 track is what some people dig in the action sports realm. As a Graphic Designer, the opening was very simple using Final Cut and Photoshop. I will have my next blog explaining some of the steps and my thoughts on making exteme sports videos interesting.
Thanks to all of the people that provided footage of these athletes.

This a screen shot of the DVD menu for The Watermen League. The Owner of Ku Hoe, a manufacture of revolutionary short SUP boards and Longboards, is releasing a film they shot and The Watermen League will be showing some promo stuff there. We are going to be in Honolulu.
It is a beautiful montage of SUP clips desaturated and tinted blue to give a free feeling. A inspirational song plays as the clips shot at 60fps just mesmerize you. All while the Waterman League logo shines.
For Up and Coming designers. I used DVD studio pro, After effects and photoshop. Actual Menu Itself was made in Photoshop. The shining waterman logo in after effects and the menu buttons are simple DVD Studio Pro buttons. Its a very sleek design and only took 2 hours.
Ekolu Kalamas Blood Line, life, and training have made him more than just another SUP stand out, but a heavy favorite in The Stand Up World Tour
