Take a Peek with “One Eye Shut”


Posted on November 27th, 2007 by Zack | Posted in General, Media, Riders

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with W.I.T. Production’s front man Spencer Norris and ask a few questions about his upcoming film “One Eye Shut.” Norris has been filming with some of the Northwest’s top talent as well as some rippers from Florida and other areas across the US of A. The film is the follow up to his freshman effort “The Arrival” and by the looks of it, will be a great addition to the young filmers resume.

Nick Jones Update : Surgery Was a Success, Road to Recovery

Itís been three weeks since Nick Jones went into surgery to repair a Liz Frank Fracture (a tear of the ligament between the first and second metatarsal) in his foot which was slowly pulling the two bones apart. He has been dealing with the injury most of the season since January when the initial fracture occurred. Now post surgery, Nick is in good spirits and on the road to recovery.

The surgery was successful from what his doctors say. While in the recovery room, Dr. Chi explained that once he removed the scared tissue from the injured area, the bones that were separated went right back in place. Dr. Chi says that the procedure went far better than he expected it would.

I am sitting here at the hospital in the waiting room while Nick Jones is in surgery. Nick has been plagued by an injury that occurred in January. However, it did not stop him from having another great season. He finished in the top 20 of the Pro Wakeboard Tour, appeared in the industry magazines, attended the CWB team photoshoot, and even had time to film a few sections for next year’s wake flicks. Nick Jones is truly one of the best Northwest grown riders. He is determined to start riding again in January after therapy is complete. We wish Nick all the best during his recovery. Stay tuned for further updates post his surgery.
