Friday Flicks: 12/16/16

December 16, 2016 • Videos

This late-night edition of Friday Flicks for 12/16/16 starts appropriately enough with some late-night shredding courtesy of Ocean City, NJ’s Rob Kelly: “When there’s not enough hours of daylight in December but you still need to get your fix!” Kelly said on Facebook. “Been hitting the Lume Cube sessions in Jersey lately after watching Anthony Walsh and Jamie O’Brien do it in Hawaii. Not quite as warm but still a lot of fun!”

Then, it’s cold, so why not enjoy a little #flashbackfriday to warmer days in October and November with native Michael Dunphy boogieing both north and south during 2016’s excellent hurricane season, as filmed by fellow Virginian Jordan Montgomery

Next up, New England native James Morse sits down for a little Blunt Talk with Jennifer Schmeer…

Looking for more action? You can’t go wrong with Reef’s “Live From The North Shore 2016 – Part 1” — no matter what, Hawaii always provides. From steep and deep tubes to open-faced canvases to high-flying launch ramps, Evan Geisleman, Mitch Crews, Kai Otton, Taylor Knox, Mikala Jones, Billy Kemper & Thiago “Shrimpy” Camarao make the most of their front row seats at Off The Wall in another edition of #justpassingthrough

And finally, New Hampshire icon Ralph Fatello got this trip down memory lane in to us just in time for the 12/16/16 Friday Flicks deadline: “Back by popular demand! More of the old super 8mm movies from the 1980s. This was all shot in the great state of New Hampshire. I shot 90% of this, and my then-girlfriend Cory (Bunton) Fatello shot the first few clips in 1984. I remember handing her the movie camera and instructing her when to pull the trigger and when to let up. There was a foot of snow on the ground and she was wearing high heels. She did such a good job that I knew right then and there that I would marry her someday.  I did three years later, and she’s been shooting surf ever since. The surfers in this clip are: Kevin “Doc” Grondin, Steve “Mags” Magliano, John “Duffy” McCarthy, Dave “Crop” Cropper, Allen Bigbee, John “JT” Taylor, Michael “Iron Balls” Baytoff, and me. The music is once again by my fave band of the ’70s and ’80s, Roxy Music. The song is “Both Ends Burning.” It’s the ’80s, people. Step back and get jiggy with it.”
