Meet Travis Grant’s M2O winning board from NSP

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Please subscribe to Distressed Mullet TV here on Youtube by clicking the SUBSCRIBE above.

In this video, DC (Dale Chapman) and Chris Chamberlain walk us through Travis Grant’s Molokai 2 Oahu-winning stand up paddle board, the first unlimited production board to win the M2O.
DC is the shaper and was also on Travis’ support boat for the 5+ hours across the M2O’s Channel of Bones.

Travis’ Board Dimensions:

17’10” x 24.5″ wide unlimited board was designed by Travis Grant and Alain Teurquetil and shaped by DC for NSP. It has a progressive rocker, designed to get up and over the waves, with edge on the rail through the back and rounded more forgiving rails throughout (rolled bottom that Travis likes from his OC-1 background). There are no concaves.

There’s a super interesting section where they discuss Travis’ decision to take two waves into the finish on a board of this size.

The Fastest Ship in the U.S. Navy: Boeing Pegasus-Class Hydrofoils (720p)

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

This educational video is shows the Boeing built hydrofoils named after Tucumcari, New Mexico, the design basis for the technology used in the subsequent United States Pegasus-class patrol boats and the Jet-foil ferries. Its unique feature was a water-jet propulsion and a computer-controlled fully submerged foil configuration of one foil at the bow and foils on the port and starboard sides. The Tucumcari was one of two prototype boats contracted by the Navy for the purpose of evaluating the latest hydrofoil technology with a fast top speed of 50 knots. The second boat was the rival Grumman built USS Flagstaff (PGH-1).

Last year 3x World champ Mick Fanning took the year away from full time competition to explore the world and experience new places. I was lucky enough to join him on a trip the the Arctic Circle to direct an episode of Red Bull’s “Chasing the Shot” where he surfed through the night under the Northern Lights. Although the days were extremely cold and short with only a few hrs of light, we managed to find great waves and stood in awe of the scenic beauty in every direction. This is my directors cut from that trip and features some of my favorite daytime moments while focusing on the scenic side of our trip. Special thanks to Red Bull for making it happen.
