Switchfoot "Fading West (Documentary)" by Julia Kitzing (cmaddict.com) on 2013-12-17 08:08:19
This video is very well done and shows you behind the scenes of what Switchfoot does. A lot of the video takes place when they are on tour overseas and shows a lot of different surfing spots. The shots taken while they are surfing are awesome!! I’ve personally always loved the ocean, and the shots of them surfing where you can see the different colors in the water and watch the waves breaking, is really cool. There are also shots of them enjoying a very pretty spot in Bali when they are not surfing, but most of their free time on the road and between shows is spent surfing.
There is also a part when they are in South Africa where they visit a group of children who are in an AIDS infected area. Switchfoot has visited there before and the kids were very excited for their visit and came rushing to the vans when they pulled into the parking lot. The kids are in a choir and they get to actually be a part of their show in the area and spend time with them. Really cool for these kids who have lost at least one parent to AIDS.
In the video Switchfoot also talks about missing their families and the struggles they deal with wondering if they are doing the right thing leaving their families to go out on the road and tour. This video is very well done and I really enjoyed watching it. I would recommend this for anyone who is a fan of Switchfoot or enjoys the ocean and watching the waves.
