Tim Durtschi Diaries 17

Durtschi just sent us over his newest edit. Some fresh dama clips around the 2:08 mark. This just brought back some epic Dama Fest flashbacks! Be sure to check out Saga Outerwear for some fresh winter threads!!

This Diary is about my trip to New Zealand with an intro I shot last year and never used, thanks to Monster audio for the gear! I filmed a heli trip with Field Productions, and skied some park with George Pengelly at Cadrona. New Zealand was a crazy trip it is action packed with athletes riders and everyone trying to get some Southern Hemisphere snow. I filmed some Kendama tricks back at the Saga Warehouse waiting for snow! Also got to session the snoflex at Woodward Copper, Thanks to you guys for the ramp time.

1 day in Japan by Colin Sander

In this powerful, long-form showcase- one day of Japanese kendama-play is documented. Top performers from across the globe spend quality time with one another in the land o’ the dama. This was just one of many days during a blessed summer trip for WKF2012. I photographed so much, but had such little time upon my return I have only now begun to reach the footage. The longer-yet piece, ‘Peak Performance Kendama’ is in the works, including the whole of this trip, as well as the KG Roots tour, and more. One Day In Japan shows the joys of veteran-form… we didn’t set out after stunts. … this time.
