Freestyle Footstock

There’s been some debate about what exactly is freestyle barefooting… while here’s AN answer.  You see the Andre and Zane DeVilliers and Chris Morrison do some pretty sweet tricks, including hitting the ramp and doing more than your standard barefoot jumps.  Nothing we haven’t see before, but it’s nice to see them try this stuff out on something less than perfect glass water.  Granted they still had excellent conditions, but not the glass you see them do this stuff on all the time.

Music City River Run – Oct 18, 2008

The boys of Barefoot Endurance Racing on ning have announced the details of the 3rd Annual Music City River Run.  The endurance race takes place on Saturday, October 18th.

Sounds like they are doing two versions of the race this time…  one version will be the relatively normal 25 mile variety.  The other version will be 100 miles.  For more details, click the link above to check out the ning site.  Here’s the entry form with a bunch of details and here’s a link to the BFC forum with some discussion on the race.

Oh Brother…

This is kinda of an uninspired video from BFC… not a whole lot new in this one, and there isn’t a lot of footing either.  They go shopping for “cowboy” clothes and hats, do a little footing in what looks like just swim trunks and cowboy hats, but if you look closely, you can see barefoot shorts under their trunks.  So if you’re excited to see guys go barefooting with cowboy hats, enjoy…

Oh Brother Where Art Thou?

Do Your Thing

As usual, BFC has put together another video of really good footers doing some sick tricks on glass calm water.  It’s almost starting to get old.  But then about 2:30 in the video, they starting doing something interesting again.  I wouldn’t quite call them front flips or back flips, but the footers do go inverted, kinda of like a cartwheel, but with no hands (after trying to find the term for that trick, I guess its called an aerial cartwheel).  Then they start doing these over each other.

In summary, the first half is a little ho-hum with the sick tricks we’re becoming way too use to and then it gets interesting at the end.  Now go watch the video…

Redneck Barefooting

Here’s what we need:

  • rope… check
  • wetsuit… check
  • kneeboard… check
  • snowmobile… check

Snowmobile?  Yes, snowmobile.   Don’t need a boat or even a jet ski.  Just something that can move over the water.

KSO, on a trip to Wisconsin decided to try out footing on a small private body of water behind a snowmobile.  Here’s the video…

Redneck Barefooting with KSO

Then, based on some dates, shortly after doing this, KSO went on to win his 9th Barefoot Nationals at the Blue Moo followed by Footstock in Crandon.  He had a busy summer in Wisconsin.
