MATADOR ATHLETE AND FILMMAKER SHON BOLLOCK has completed his second feature film, Slippery When Wet. The filming and editing took over two years, as Shon and his crew the Shasta Boyz adventured throughout Hawaii, Mexico, California, and Pacific Northwest. The process culminated in an expedition to Japan which was nearly called off due to the tsunami, but then undertaken as both a kayaking and relief volunteering mission.
Over the past several months, Matador has been showing the trailers (Shon’s highlight reel / trailer is above), and we’re stoked to announce that the film is now available for purchase online.
In a recent interview over at Sanuk, Shon was asked about hi takeaway from making the film over the last two years:
Well apart from it be finished I would say that having the opportunity to share our stories with people is what its all about. It is a tough time in our world right now and I feel extremely fortunate to be able to live the way I do. Looking back I think that the small amount of relief work our team was able to do in Japan was what made the film for me. I suggest everyone adds Japan to their bucket list.
If you’re looking for some stoke, inspiration, and buena onda, buy Slippery When Wet, or gift it to a friend.
