Making Noelani

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

Swaylocks contributor ‘Oldy’ dropped me a message that really stoked me tonight about a film he’s shot and edited about the construction of a quad fish called Noelani. The film is outstanding and is obviously not an amateur effort.

After checking his sways profile, a quick surf search revealed ‘Oldy’ as Nathan Oldfield, the filmmaker responsible for the longboarding movie Lines From A Poem. (Anyone have a link to a trailer?)

Nathan has also created a detailed board construction thread on sways. I spent a half hour wading through the comments and watching the board progress from fins to foil, from birth to death to rebirth, to the first surf and the first share in 11 pages.

If all this creativity wasn’t enough for you, the tune in the flick is by Nathan’s friend Mike McCarthy who recorded the song in his bedroom.

Why are you still reading this? Go make something, anything, while you still have time.
