Boat Skateboard Jump

Testing a skateboard trick off a moving boat for the in progress film project “Thrash or Die.” Stuntman is skater/actor/writer Nick Sommer doing the boat skateboard jump onto the pier. The shots are from the Milwaukee River in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Nick having a good time on our way to the test site:

Pulling up to the test site:

I call this masterpiece, “Party Foul.” Note the wasted beer in the bottom frame.
Nick landed this 3 or 4 times in a row while the boat was tied up, but this makes me giggle, so had to post it.
There’s also a wedding party taking pictures of us and them and cheering Nick on right next to us, just off-cam:

After landing with the boat tied up, we finally did it they way I wanted 😛 with the boat moving!
Nick lands it like a beast after a couple tries. No beer spill either:

Zach has me more than a little scared here.

Hailey Shoots Me
My right hand was on my camera while Party Boy’s young niece took this photo. Obviously I had to then do something especially cool with my left arm.

Party Boy Steers
That’s MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design) in the background. MIAD definitely has some great locations in Milwaukee’s 3rd Ward, including this one.

Overall, a great day and night!
