Speaking from an aussie perspective. History is big for us. But there is a new generation who dont know household names such as Roach, Barba, Manny Vargas, Skipper. Do you know that I talk to groms and they have no idea who Skipper is? Manta boards are a joke in australia. Anyone that rides them might has well have bought one from whammo at a supermarket. I havent bought a skipp board since LMNOP because the Manta ones are a piece of shit that dont match his template at all.
I remember going to the NF 10 premier, the 10 year anniversary and walking out going "what the hell" and thats the polite version.  The chance to do something amazing was missed. That is why the Skid kids movie is going to be so good.
Does anyone remember Ben Holland? He was amazing, prone and drop knee he was at another level, and then he vanished.
I loved NF clothing, I loved the team. I loved all the movies.
I think Dre need his own movie but that would be an Empire/662 mob thing.
So my suggestion would be do a round up of team riders, show them then, show them now, get them talking about where their life went.. is going. And throw in some retro inspired tshirts to go with it.
And also if anyone wants to see movies that remind me of NF videos check our Richard Lornies, Chout and Chout the World, both epic bodyboard movies, full of Hubb, Houston and Romero footage.

This man speaks the truth.

- Bodyboarding has a bad habit of forgetting its legends from the past. Surfing does not do this - look at how well they still regard the legends like Rabbit Bartholomew, Occy, the Ho brothers, Andy Irons, Tom Carroll, Mark Richards, etc etc.  The NF documentary would be a great way to promote our past heroes.

- Manta boards are a joke. Nothing like what they were in the 80's and 90's with their awesome beaded polypro core and 2-piece noses.

- Ben Holland was a legend too. Awesome air forwards and DK skills. My first board was a Rheopaipo Ben Holland with the terrible flat tail and wizard graphic on the slick.

b4 the trolling takes over this thread..

Stoker, please do a box set of the NF videos!

Re: No Friends / Roach Documentary - Stoker doing videos again....

Stoker, I will donate couch space & an extra car to drive if you need to come to Oahu to do any work on this?   Almost all of the legends of the sport are around & very active in the bodyboarding world still.

I wonder if the younger generation who do the IBA contests know how much of an honor it is to have a judging & contest organization panel consisting of:

Stewart
Severson
Kainoa
Pat Caldwell
Sasaki

depending on how rad whatever it is that you decide to make, id be willing to throw $50

i think the most constructive and important commentary on this thread is on the 1st page.

what good fun

Re: No Friends / Roach Documentary - Stoker doing videos again....

Those videos shaped my youth and I am not sure you realize how much influence you had on my generation (I am 35 now).  We ran into you guys probably 20 years ago surfing at Leo Carillo and I will always remember how cool you, Ross, and Skipp were.  We were just a bunch a kids who idolized you guys and worshiped the videos you produced. You guys were humble, and took time out to shoot the shit with us about music and our twisted public access TV show that we had at the time. 

I look forward to seeing this project completed and supporting it anyway I can.

I hear ya guys. Trust me, I have been trying for 2-3 weeks just to schedule a stupid meeting and that first step hasn't even happened yet. Kinda pissing me off at this point. I can't really say much right now other than that.

If you're trying to schedule a meeting with bodyboarders, don't bother. Generally speaking, bodyboarders are lazy fucks. You just have to do that shit yourself or show up on someones door step. I could see this process drag out for several years before you're able to complete anything, and not from any fault of yours.

Re: No Friends / Roach Documentary - Stoker doing videos again....

Funny you said just show up on someone's doorstep cause thats just what i am about to do.

Re: No Friends / Roach Documentary - Stoker doing videos again....

I had some good meetings last week. Still lots to discuss, but Step 1 is sort of out of the way i guess. Still lots to do, but trust me, i am trying. Hopefully this all sees the light of day.

Re: No Friends / Roach Documentary - Stoker doing videos again....

Nobody should be surprised that nothing is happening. Bodyboarders are lazy fucks in general. You were expecting a different outcome, then you don't know bodyboarders. "Yah, I'm totally interested. Let me get back to you on that." I'm sure that's what Stoker heard, before never hearing back from them. Fact is most everyone has moved on from Bodyboarding's luster years and probably don't give a flying fuck about reliving the past. Good on ya for trying though.

Re: No Friends / Roach Documentary - Stoker doing videos again....

You should have just told Stoker from the start bro since you act like you know it all..Good on you for clarifying whats up though.

Cause you can't tell a man not to do something he's so passionate about you fuk. You wouldn't know about that stuff though.

104

Re: No Friends / Roach Documentary - Stoker doing videos again....

Maybe they have other priorities like jobs and families to take care of? These guys are getting old and bodyboarding isn't like surfing where the legends are still sponsored or paid enough to retire with and able to live off the sport.

No shit, I was being sarcastic. You are the one sounding like the negative douche bag.
