Came across this rad little blog called Inspire your Imagination that profiles, links to, showcases, talks about etc. etc. photographers from around the globe. Awesome resource for inspiration and to see what people are getting up to. Couldn’t quite find out to much info on who runs this but am impressed none-the-less.
Awesome Idea, as Dave says in the quote below it took them 8000 balloons! A Lot of work. I personally would love to see such project done with a cleaner background, possibly all white, pool painted sky blue and skater in plain bright colors…would look amazing visually. How long before a major skate brand copies this idea? Can it be adapted in any way? Anyways, Nice work to davetheknave.
“I had this idea for a while to fill a skate bowl with balloons and try to ride through them. It seemed like the chances of it working were slim. I figured they might make your wheels stop. We finally tried it anyways and as you can see from this video we made of Matt Beach, it worked just fine. The popping sounds are not added in. That is the real audio of balloons popping. it took over 3 hours to blow up nearly 8000 balloons using 2 air compressors to get it full enough. location- department of skateboarding, Portland, OR.”
