We found a blog post from Newport tripper/filmmaker Jack Coleman. He shares a Ward story and an excerpt from his Super 8 film “Secret Sound Underground”. Watch Ward and Mason make their “artsy” debut performance in indie surf film history.
MASON HO N WARDO – SECRET SOUND Underground
Posted on February 6, 2014 by jack
One of my favorite sections from the movie. It features Mason Ho doing that backhand tube thing that only he can do. He blew my mind with his approach, aggressiveness, courage, ability, vision, humor, and energy. Was so sick to meet Mason for the first time in Lombok, since then ive run into a few times and its all smiles:)
Wardo is a maniac. Of course you knew that already. Got a classic Wardo story outta this trip. He asked to go into my room cause he had stashed something up in the rafters from a previous trip. He then pulled out a dusty old matchbook container, filled with something not legal in the country of Indonesia. Also, 3 weeks ago i ran into him checking pipeline in Hawaii. Wardo was there with his wife and their new baby. This was my opportunity to give the film personally to Chris, so i did, he was phyched and called super 8 movies “ARTSY”
