Last year I got the call from Kilgus, “how would you like to go to Australia for the filming of Bent Felix?”. Without hesitation I obliged and started planning for a trip of a lifetime.

The trip was stacked with a top notch crew of riders from around the world. Joining the roster were JD Webb and Keith Lyman and from Australia Scotty Broome and Dean Smith. There would also be a few cameo appearances from Amber Wing.

Check out the video trailer for Bent Felix and a few teaser galleries from our trip to Australia.

Wakeboarding gets another shot at primetime on Fuel TV’s Insane Cinema program throughout the month of April. Sure, it’s not a major network, but anytime you can catch someone riding a wakeboard and it’s not part of some cheesy commercial, that’s a good thing for the sport.

So program your DVR if you haven’t already seen this unique film from Sean Kilgus and if you have seen it, make sure you remind all of your buddies that haven’t to check out Fuel TV this month.

Check out all of the details, along with a preview of the video after the jump.
