Continentseven: Who is Blacklab?
Josh Wilmot: Blacklab is a collective of new school freestylers and film makers. Set up in 2010 as a ongoing project and a label for our films.
C7: What is the goal of Blacklab?
Josh: What I personally really want to achieve is that when some one watches one of our clips they get stoked and want to go sail. My filming is heavily influenced from other sports, I surf and ride MTB and I think there is a lot windsurfing can learn from the way these sports are presented, especially from the media around world tour events.
C7: On which spots did you film for “Out with the old, in with the new”?
Josh: We filmed all over the Sinai in Egypt. El Tur, Dahab and Moon beach, it was a bit of a road trip. We had about 50kg of jibs, tripods etc, as well as over 200kg in windsurfing kit so moving locations got interesting.
What else happened during the filming period?
Josh: Haha yeah! Adam cut his head open on the cable in El Tur… first run ever and almost stomped a raily but put the board into his head… We had to go get it stitched up. Drinking with the Russians in El Tur was pretty funny too…
