This past year, rather than piecing together a couple edits throughout the year, Ewan Jaspan decided to take a different approach and put together a full-length film highlighting his year with some of his best sessions. Teaming up with Alexander Lewis-Hughes from Knot Future, they started off in Ewan’s home country of Australia filming in Perth and Melbourne. From there they traveled to Cape Hatteras, up to Squamish, British Columbia, Hood River and finally down to Icapui, Brazil. The final result is a 26-minute film with plenty of freestyle, big air and of course wakestyle and slider action. Naish was able to catch up with Ewan just prior to the film’s release to get the story behind the film.
