The next installment of the always awesome Kranked series is a mere two weeks away – Kranked Revolve is slated for a June 1st release and from what I’ve seen already it’s destined to be the best yet. Here’s the trailer for those of you who haven’t seen it yet – be sure to set your underpants to ’stun

For the second year running I’ve been lucky enough to work on stills for a section of the movie, and was yet again blown away by the level of riding, creativeness and craftsmanship that have been captured on film. It’s truly awe-inspiring, and as usual the Coastal Crew were fantastic to work with; if any aspiring pros out there want pointers in work ethic they need look no further than Dylan, Curtis and the Kyles for how it should be done – relentless optimism, professionalism and just general awesomeness is all these guys know.

In lieu of the magazine-bound action shots, here’s a sneak peak taster of some of the behind-the-scenes images from my time with the crew:

A sneaky teaser shot of one of the most insane structures I've ever seen. You won't believe your eyes when you see what we got.

Not only can Dylan shred at a pro level, he's an amazing VT editor as well.

Thank God for waterproof boots. I spend a lot of time in rivers.

A lot of my shots wouldn't be possible without help - Laura and Dan are killer assistants.
