Snow Park NZ hosted yet another amazing event and with conditions in our favor the filming went perfectly.
Shooting our feature content on the new Sony FS700 we lifted the production value up a knotch with the added advantage of shooting at 200FPS in full 1080.
Also in the mix the guys from 'Heli Shot' brought in their octocopter and another FS700 strapped to it. End results are quite exciting considering the camera out of the box is very afordable!
Other cameras included the EX1, 5D & an AF102.

“Zeestraten had been working hard in the build up to the event, and qualified in first place on day one,” said NZ’s head park and pipe coach, Tom Willmott. “With a sketch in his first run of semi-finals and sitting outside the top-eight cutoff, the pressure was on, but it ran like water off a duck’s back as Stef rose to the challenge, cementing a great second run to qualify for finals in third place.”
Zeestraten’s winning run was his first of the final, the local favorite registering 79.30 points from the judges. He began with a cab 270 gap to the down rail, followed by a frontside 720, a backside 900, switch backside double cork 1080 and a switch 50-50 on the final feature.
“Good times! It was a fun event, I’m stoked to ride away with the win and stoked to ride with some solid riders, the boys were killing it so I’m happy to be a part of that,” said Zeestraten.
