IDIOTS INC ENTERTAINMENT
Australia. It's a country so huge that it defies numbers. But that's what I've got, and that's what I'm going to use in my bid to capture 12K's magnitude: 48 riders at over 16 Australian locations, 450 cans of beer, 89 handle passes, 54 rail slides, 34 lip smackings, 25 indie grabs,19 bottom turns, 14 kiteloops, 3 skating sections (including Andre Phillip plastering himself on the concrete at the bottom of a quarter pipe) and a couple of token Aussie blokes getting their arses out. 12K is a true reflection of the high standard of riding in Australia and the incredible potential of its coastline. Slick editing and great intro and ending titles sew together this movie that's like every great rolled one in the world - home grown from start to finish. A verdict in numbers? 8 out of 10.
