Danny Harf loves wakeboarding videos. Not the three-minute-or-less, one-rider-goes-for-a-single-session Web videos, necessarily. No, Harf loves the kind of feature-length passion projects that have all but disappeared from wakeboarding these days — the Hit It!s, Sprays and MayDays that originally inspired him to go ride. So it wasn’t a huge surprise when Harf and longtime wake producer Sean Kilgus unveiled the trailer for just such a film at TransWorld WAKEBOARDING’s 2009 Wake Awards. The footage from that first trailer for Defy, including Harf’s soaring wrapped nose grab backside 900 in stunning high definition and super slow motion, told us two things: First, Harf would use Defy as a platform to push not only his own riding but wakeboarding as a whole in new and inventive directions. Second, Harf and Kilgus planned to make people excited about wakeboarding videos again. Almost two years later, both expectations have proven true. Harf organized a handful of projects, from a seemingly endless line of double-ups to sprawling kicker-to-pool setups, that allowed him and his teammates from Monster, Ronix, Fox and Nautique to redefine what we think is possible on a wakeboard. All the while, Kilgus faithfully chronicled their endeavors, training as many as six cameras on progression in the making. With Defy just months from release, we talked to Harf about his hopes for the movie, where his riding is headed and why making videos is his favorite part about riding for a living.
