Clips of the Week: February 22, 2013

Our favorite video clips of the week:

1. Tenkara, Short of…

Our first video this week comes from BRO reader Robert Gibbes and his “Brookie Buster,” what looks to be half an old school bamboo rod used in a tenkara fly fishing style for native brook trout in the North Carolina high country. Not quite fly fishing, not quite tenkara, this is a unique style, but it proves effective as he brings many beautiful fish to hand.

2. Get Some Air

From the same group that brought you “Strong,” here is “The Joy of Air” a stunning look at human thirst for adventure and risk through poetry, both auditory and visual.

3. Sick Nic

Absinthe Films profile of Nicolas Muller, one of my favorite riders of all time, right after Terje. “He has bird bones.”

4. Ping Pong

Just a casual behind the back in tournament play. Opponent reaction is classic.

5. Walk on Water

Inspiring look at Greg Mallory. Paralyzed in a skiing accident in 1994, he turned to kayaking and is now an accomplished Class V boater. Even if you don’t kayak, this one is worth your time.

That’s it for this week. If you have a video you would like to submit to clips of the week, please let us know in the comments. Thanks and have a great weekend!
