If my friends would have asked me to come out wake surfing or wake boarding any other year I would have said no, "too cold for me buddy!" Fortunately, this summer was really warm in my little part of Washington state. Several 100+ days of beautiful sunshine. The water in our rivers warmed up nicely. So nice in fact that here in October they were still relatively warm compared to past years at this time. Sure, if it was a lake you can have it later in the year and still be warm but this is a large flowing river.
We filmed a little bit of footage last weekend. I used my DJI Phantom 3 Pro shooting over the water capturing the surfing behind the boat. It is always a little bit nerve racking flying over water, but it all worked out well. I am now hoping to produce a more planned out video of wakesurfing next season. This was all shot in one afternoon so its pretty basic. Enjoy!
