Tia Blanco in “A Short Escape” – a Surf Film by Justin Jung with Music by Catherine Clark

  Although the vast majority of us ride surfboards shaped by someone else--hopefully your local shaper whenever possible--it's still fun to get yourself covered in foam by making an attempt at shaping your own surfboard at least once in your surfing life. If you can't get time in your own shaper's bay, a perfect alternative is to head to Shaper Studios where they have all the tools necessary to make your dream board a reality. In this video by the talented Justin Jung, Tia scores some time away from the competitive scene and enjoys a relaxing session at home on a self-shaped longboard, all backed by a wonderful track by Catherine Clark.
Film Description "After a long season of travels and shortboard competitions, it was nice to unwind at home and have some fun on my self shaped longboard. I will never forget days like these. Huge thanks to Justin Jung for putting this edit together. Also, thank you to Catherine Clark for the amazing song." - Tia Blanco

Get it here: http://timmycurran.com/options.zip Along with the release of "Options",Timmy launched his new website http://www.timmycurran.com/ where you can download previous albums such as "Citsuca" & "Verses" for FREE. "Options" was produced by band mate Andy Smith, who's been playing with Timmy since the beginning. "I am really looking forward to releasing "Options", Andy Smith did a great job producing this record. I recorded scratch vocal and guitar tracks in my garage, then Andy took those tracks to his home studio and composed the rest of the album. When I got the pre-mixed version of the album, I was blown away at what Andy created along with Jesse Carmichael and Jesse Taylor. Andy was able to get Dann Gallucci former member of Modest Mouse to mix the record, which was an honor to have someone on that level mix our record. We recorded final vocal tracks at the Hurley Studios, thanks to Greg Teal & David Warsop for engineering. I am very blessed to have Andy Smith, Jesse Carmichael, and Jesse Taylor playing in this band. They all added so much to the record, I am grateful." Below is "Suddenly" a track from "Options" featuring Catherine Clark, recorded at Hurley Studios. Timmy will be doing a coast to coast tour this Fall.
