We want to give video parts a bigger spotlight and maybe even push riders
to get back into creating video parts that are worth the name.
we invited 8 riders with their filmmakers to produce their best 100 second video part!
starting today they will have 4 months of filming and editing before the videos need to be sent in. They will be published online to be judged by every one of you - creating a base for the panel of judges to rank the top three spots.
This contest is about taking the time to create something that will stick,
something that is worth the name video part.
A contest that is about pushing the creative part of wakeboarding.

some quick few word questions
3 things that are not missing on a film mission
camera, sun hat, good vibes
when and where are trick ideas for video parts popping up in your head
a lot of inspiration from watching videos and edits. In wake, snow and skate.
video that took the longest to edit
definitely the first movie I made “The Coalition The Movie.” I knocked it out in about two weeks but prolly over 100 hours behind the computer.
who gets to see a final edit first
Always the crew at VWC get to see a few versions before the final edit is complete. Then when it’s done we’ll all sit down and watch it together
favorite part of creative process
definitely filming banger clips gets me hyped up to start the editing process
favorite detail on one of your graphics on boards
I really love everything about the first coalition graphic and how it looked on the water. I’m truly blessed to do graphics with Slingshot. I absolutely love it
most interesting person you met
always hyped to meet and become friends with legends like Scott Byerly and Parks Bonifay. Without them our sport would not be what it is today.
your all time favorite video part
In wakeboarding probably Felixs X game part or Doms winch part from a few years back
which 3 wakeboardspots/cables should be planted in your backyard
VWC, Thai Wake Park, Bricks
the Mob is
SPACE MOB OR DIE.
"The Space Mob is a group of like minded individuals" who are pushing the sport further. With producing video parts and two full length wakeboard movies they don't stop with impressing the core wakeboard community and spreading the love of wakeboarding to the public.
Follow their journey and everything they are up to.
Let's get right into it: How would you define a "proper video part" ?
Video parts can be so diverse. Just make some creative and something you can be proud of. Play to your strengths.
You are creating video parts and even movies with so many different riders all around the world. What makes you put so much effort into producing these ?
I make movies and edits because I grew up watching shred edits and I want to contribute to that vibe. Also, making edits helps you remember those good times you had with your homies filming it. It’s always fun to go back and watch some old edits and reminisce with friends.
What is making a proper video part so special ? Why should there be more video parts ?
More videos, more memories, more stoke, more people joining our sport.
What are your thoughts at the current state of wakeboarding in general ?
Park riding is incredible at the moment. The level of riding and creativity is at an all time high. I truly love this sport and the direction we are going. Sky is the limit.
Now to Space Mob - planning a cable on the moon ? Or what is next ?
Cable on the moon would be sick. Antigravity??? Hellooooo!!! Future of SM is really just keep filming, editing, and slowly developing the website into a full blown online magazine. I have so many ideas for SM I just have to keep pushing and making small steps for the future.
That sounds awesome - we are ready to follow the journey of SpaceMob.
What is it about that you put your creativity towards so many different "outputs" ?
I’ve been creating things since I was a child. Creativity is in my blood. I have a lot of energy so I have to put it somewhere. And I truly love creating things. It’s what I was put on this earth to do.
Back to video parts. Do you want to tell us whats your favorite part of a video project ?
Winching is my favorite and least favorite part of filming wakeboarding. It’s so good when it’s good but it can be hell when things don’t work out. But when it works out you truly get the best clips.
And in the end: Do you have any tips to anybody who wants to start creating video parts..
Just do it! Get started somehow. Watch tutorials, get creative, have fun.
SPACE MOB OR DIE!
Thank you Wesley for taking the time to talk with us about the topic of video parts and wakeboarding in general. We can't wait to see where your journey is taking you!
Much love for your work and dedication. SPACE MOB OR DIE!
thoughts behind the contest
for us sessionismore, creating video parts always have been the thing we wanted to do. But even we got into the video situation that's happening right now. Everything needs to be shown immediately, with Instagram the hectic of uploading became a thing. There is no more taking time to create something. No more shooting the whole season, trying a trick 100times until the shot is seriously good, no holding back off the footage to come up with a video part that is worth the name. With that wakeboarding went missing something.
So we want to give video parts a bigger spotlight and maybe even push riders to get back into creating their video parts.
Video parts expresses each athletes riding the most. Video parts are about creativity, about bangers, about style... about a concept behind a video, about a team that wants to put something out there that will be remembered.
it’s about taking time to produce something that will stick!
that's why we are introducing "crafted seconds" - a wakeboard video contest by sessionismore.
support for this project
with all this being a non profit project, where it is only and truly about pushing wakeboarding - we are hyped to say that 100% of NISSAN Europes support is directly going to every invited team to help produce their best video part and into our prize pool for the top three spots!
So thank you NISSAN. For supporting this. For seeing the potential in wakeboarding. For pushing our sport further. THANK YOU.
