Separate Volume World Premiere
Oakley premiered its first surf film, "Separate Volume" at the Headquarters in Foothill Ranch, Ca. The fiesta started with catered street tacos, margaritas, a mobile mariachi band and a sunset photo-op with a donkey. As the sun went down the stadium lights turned on for the pre-movie event of Mexican Lucha Libre Wrestling, like previewed in the new Jack Black film "Nacho Libre". The crowd of 1000 people gathered around the ring to watch these guys beat the living crap out of each other. As the show ended, everyone flowed into the Oakley Lobby and into the Amphitheater to watch the main event unfold.
From gauging under the lip turns on 60 foot waves, by Nathan Fletcher, to Aaron Cormican’s rotation flips in 2 foot waves, the crowd witnessed the lifestyles of our Oakley surf athletes in top form. Directed by Matt Goodman and edited by Curt Morgan, the same editor of Oakley’s "The Community Project". This duo added a different feel to surf films that are being made at the present time. Filmed in exotic locations around the world, on the best waves known to man and captured in 35 and 16mm footage. This project was given an artistic approach totally unique from anything out there, which created a timeless piece of art in motion.
