Rip Curl is proud to announce the private premiere of TAO, the New Daniel Grant wakeboarding movie today in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand. This exclusive showing for special friends, celebrities and media will be the full length preview before the official online launch on the day of Grant’s 18th Birthday, December 23rd, 2015.
“2014 was a great season”, Daniel commented, “I won a bunch of events and ended the season taking the overall championship. But I still felt like something was missing. By last season, I was pretty much over all the travel, all the competitions and I was determined that this year I would do something different. Rip Curl and Monster Energy were supportive of me making a video instead. It was a huge challenge for me. Every edit was a big personal challenge, my toughest so far. TAO is my own edit, filmed on my own terms with someone who has always been there for me, filmmaker and good friend Brandon Thomas. I hope you enjoy it”.
Thrilled with the upcoming private premiere, TAO Filmmaker Brandon Thomas said, “The edit is basically Daniel riding at every cable park or winch spot doing impossible things. We tried to put together something very unique and I think we succeeded. In fact, I know we did. I hope everybody enjoys watching the premiere as much as we have enjoyed making it. And the music is unreal!”.
Boosting this film into the stratosphere is also the original soundtrack.“We really pushed the boundaries on this one”, Says Music producer Bear Kerry, “We wanted to make sure the audience felt like they were there in the water with us”.
The rumour is that Daniel Grant and his film team are going to be revealing mind blowing never-seen-before tricks, locations and concepts within this exclusive premiere, and that the after party is going to be the private wakeboarding event of the year.
