Sean 'The Cameraman' Nolan, (otherwise know as, Sean 'The Man That Filmed Mike Smith's Videos' Nolan) has been busy in Tenerife and Cabo Verde with ex-world champion, Mark Shinn. For the last couple of years, Mark has disappeared off the radar and has mainly been getting barrelled off his face, pushing kiting in a new direction for him. Funk is a fantastic reflection of Mark's life now, his views on riding past, present and future and some amazing action footage, consisting primarily of Mark's insane new unstrapped riding style. It's unbelievable how smooth he makes it look, gets locked into barrel after barrel, and - I'm pretty sure - manages the first kick-flip on a surf board...I know that the onboard camera angle is the first, anyway. Surfboard sales should rocket when people have seen this.
Funk was featured in Issue #16.
