The Best Bits Bits from the 2018 Thundercat Nationals

2018 was a bloody long time ago already and this was a project I wanted to get out before Christmas… but didn’t.

The theory being is this kind of video is easily shareable, you don’t have to invest into the series, just watch the action!

A couple of pics that never saw the light of day

So there you have it. Stay tuned for the 2019 Nationals coverage which will be starting in a matter of hours!

See you at the beach.

New Zealand made Spearguns – OXS Enterprises

I love my New Zealand made products. I do my best to support NZ made and small companies. It makes sense that I would be making all my product myself, so I do!

So here we are…. Spearguns!

I’ve been developing and changing things for months now and still haven’t quite settled on a final product so the more customised route it will be.

As always check this video out with all the details

Some pics

I could go on about it for ages but I won’t, so if a finely tuned gun sounds like a bit of you then email me sam@oxsenterprises.com or shop guns here.

See you at the beach!

The Best Thundercat Footage in the World – Sponsors Wanted!

Over the last couple of years I’ve had an idea with Thundercat Racing. An idea to grow what is arguably one of the coolest sports in the world by showing it to people. Not on TV, not flashing my phone in front of you, not telling you about it but by documenting it with a vision and putting it on the internet.

The vision was to showcase the people, the sport, the good and bad and make some fun to watch videos. In short, it has worked. During the 2017 Nationals all I really wanted to do was work out what was going on. During the 2018 Nationals I felt I had it somewhat worked out. Over 750,000 YouTube views from this years Nationals alone. Not counting the Tutorial series. I am stoked with this!

Where to from here? Well as usual in my leaving it to last minute fashion I want to build it from here so lets break a few things down in a very simple form.

  • I don’t get paid by anyone to produce this series.
  • I would like to get paid to produce this series.
  • I have a lot of ideas to increase the quality of this series but I can’t do it alone.
  • There’s one big thing missing when it comes to producing this series and that’s more entertaining Long Haul coverage.
  • A Helicopter would fix this.
  • Imagine if someone would sponsor this and we could cover it properly.
  • The return on sponsors investment would be fantastic when you’re working with the media company.
  • To film and edit this series takes a lot of my time. The obvious travel and film time then an estimated 20 hours per video and photo set.. Per round.

To date I feel this is the best Long Haul video I’ve produced

Entertaining yes but it’s on another level to the Surf Cross events due to the difficulty of covering the race.

So what am I looking for?

A sponsor or sponsors that can get on board with this and provide some funding for the minimum of Helicopter hire to cover the Long Haul events this Nationals. See dates in the video below

So the events I need the Chopper for is Matakana Island on the 4th of Jan and Mayor Island on the 7th.

What is in it for sponsors? A huge return on your investment. I can provide you with media rights, logos in sponsored media, shared links to your business, far more exposure than you would ever get sponsoring a boat, a company video and involvement in this incredible sport. I can guarantee I will work hard on making sure your investment doesn’t go to waste!

There’s so many possibilities here that I can’t list them here but the options are almost unlimited.

So please to you readers, racers, potential sponsors and enthusiasts, share this blog post to someone you may know who can help out here. You can get in touch with me in many ways but phone or email is probably the easiest at 0211297511 or sam@oxsenterprises.com

I will see you at the ebach!

Hull Repair – Thundercat Tutorial

An inflatable boat with a hole in it is useless as tits on a bull so in our efforts to put as much Thundercat related info out there we kicked off a tutorial series with a Hull Repair video. There’s no Bull or tits in this, just a solid tutorial about fixing your inflatable boat.

If you’re ahead of schedule then you’ll already be up to date with the other tutorials online. If not then get along to my YouTube channel here.

See you at the beach!

The Greatest Web Series in NZ & how you can feature!

TV is dead.

Well not quite dead but it’s been dying for a long time now.

I’m not particularly excited to make a TV show. I am however quite excited on the internet platform. Mainly because of the creative freedom and the pick and choose nature of it.

Right so to cut to the chase I feel you should watch the video first!

Right so if you’re into the outdoors or know someone who is then get in touch. I’ve already started filming so it’s underway. I want variety, action and good times. This is a really good opportunity for someone who wants to cross promote their platform or just want to see how much of a pain in the ass it is to film everything haha.

Please share this around if it sounds like a bit of you!

If you want to get in touch then email me sam@oxsenterprises.com or one of the other hundred ways to contact me.

See you at the beach.
