On the morning of April 11th, 2016, Krush Kulesza’s words were poignant. They were rich with foresight and excitement, charged by his past week’s work in shaping the masterpiece that was this year’s Holy Bowly. They promised the rad, and that morning they reverberated through the stoke that hung heavy in the air. Those who were lucky enough to be there heard Krush offer hints to the best ways to film the Bowly, heard him advise follow-cam philosophy and skate-session cinematography. And for our friends at Lib Tech and Gnu, those words were reinforcement rather than direction. The weird and bitchin’ shreds at Mervin had been on the road and living in deference to flow for days already, attacking highways and skate parks with the very documentarian ideals Krush espoused that morning. Their sessions that week at Mammoth kept kept the program rockin’– the above video’s exhibit A, and while we’re sure it’ll prove our point we’d like to encourage continued engagement with the case over at Lib’s site, where you can check out a Tim Zimmerman gallery with enough bangers to get you packing bags for next year.
Holy Bowly 2016 was made possible by Snowboy Productions, Lib Technologies, Monster Energy, Mammoth Unbound, and Krush Kulesza.
