And then luckily I was sent this video which reminded me what a popular extreme sport this is! My apologies to all wakeboarders!
Danny Harf was in partnership with renowned Action Sports Film Maker Sean Kilgus of BFY Productions for his most recent project, called ‘DEFY, The Danny Harf Project’. It is a documentary of progression as seen by Danny Harf and some of his closest friends. It’s a wonderful video with some truly amazing wakeboarding and photography:
So good in fact that it was chosen as a finalist at X-Dance in Salt Lake City, UT on Jan 12th-15th, and was nominated for 5 awards:
- Best Core film
- Best Editing
- Best Cinematography
- Best Biograpy
- Best Soundtrack
They won Best Soundtrack.
Known as the biggest film festival in all of action sports, X-Dance celebrated its 12th anniversary in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 12-15. ‘DEFY, The Danny Harf Project’ was one of 30 films selected from over 100 submissions.
Danny is a 4-time X-games gold medalist, has multiple pro tour victories, 2 Master’s Championship, 2 National Titles, a World’s Title, 2009 Bro Stock Winner and winner of countless reader and rider polls in Wakeboarding. He was the 1st wakeboarder to land two different variations of a 1080, and the only wakeboarder to land a 1260. He is considered one of the most well-rounded riders in the world and has dominated the sport of wakeboarding over the past few years.
