-Coming soon to DVD - 'REALM' April 2010
Hey there everyone! So another year has passed and its time to get into the next chapter of Southern Underground Production life! Over 2009 the film crew followed 4 kiwi mates around the world through the seasons they love and shares with you how each of them lives throughout these seasons. It follows Lou Urwin and Josh Neilson as the Northern Hemisphere spring kicks off exploring new rivers up in Quebec in Eastern Canada. While they were here Sam Sutton and Mike Dawson were preparing for the Northern race season which kicked off in Vail, Colorado for Teva Mountain Games where Mike took the grand prize!
After that we all headed to Ivrea, Italy for Teva Outdoor Extreme Games with more wins for the SUP Crew and NZ taking out the World Extreme team Champs!
Some of the crew parted ways here and Sam and Josh Headed to Norway for Voss Extreme week where we raced, partied and ran some sweet rivers (seen in cover shot for 'Realm' - Sam Sutton Double Drop). While we were up there Lou Urwin was back in Canada surfing the big waves of the Ottawa followed by a trip West to run drops in British Columbia and Mike was in training again for the Sickline World Extreme Champs in Austria! After Norway Sam also Returned home to train and Josh headed out to Africa to surf the big waves on the White Nile and document his part that Southern Underground Productions has in raising money for Soft Power Health Clinic on the banks of the Nile.
Now the whole crew is back in New Zealand running the clean clear waters and big drops that we call home! Already firing up Tree Trunk Gorge, Aratiatia, the lower kaituna gorges and Huka Falls at some ridiculous flows! So this is what you can expect to see in SUP's new Film 'Realm' coming soon in March/April 2010!
