Now Video Taping: Skimboard Stunt Man Rich Gardner
And so it came to pass that I found myself in need of an athlete to appear in the new video to promote Gadzooks! A Comically Quirky Audio Book . Fortunately for all, I was able to hire Rich Gardner, a top notch skimboarder whose sense of humor matches his sense of adventure. Local skimboarders are well acquainted with the Gardner Brothers who are credited with popularizing the sport in St. George. I met Mike Gardner a few years ago when he filmed and edited the promo for Jitters-A Quirky Little Audio Book https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGGbatmaDeM and Yikes! Another Quirky Audio Book https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPotQyyPsuo&feature=g-upl . I was more than happy to hire Mike's brother, Rich, to do skimboard stunts for my new production. Rich makes skim boarding look easy, but believe me, this sport takes a lot of athleticism and finesse to pull off. Everyone is excited that Rich is the one photo bombing the camera for this shoot!
