The behind-the-scenes wavepool machinations from Candy's Ski the World Audi short…
I ain’t real sure what the attraction to ride skis and motorcycles on waves is, but there it is. A little bit of pointless silly to make us whoop and dribble the chocolate ice cream out of our fat mouths.
Last year, French freestyle skier Candy Thovex made a promotional video for Audi’s four-wheel-drives called Ski the World where he rides down iconic structures (Great Wall etc), sand dunes, through jungles and a wave pool.
Earlier today, the behind-the-scenes reel of the wavepool shoot was released and it shows Candy at the prototype Cove in the Basque Country (don’t you dare call it Spain! ETA Lives etc) and at Surf Snowdonia in that pretty Welsh valley.
Keys jangle in the ignition, the brake rips and off Candy rumbles.
Like a sharp knife that’s been stuck in your eyes so they pop like grapes.
