THE GRAND SCALE - Wakeboarding and Wakesurfing Short film
The Grand Scale is a short film about one's struggle between doing what is socially acceptable and feeling the need to get more out of life. It features local athletes from Kelowna, B.C. wakeboarding, waterskiing, and wakesurfing all shot at night. Watch these athletes do what they love doing, as we push the boundaries of sport filmmaking. Obtaining perfection is impossible but trying to overcome our own weaknesses and expanding our potential is what makes us unique.
