Speed Stick Gear Goes Extreme with YouTube Filmmaker Devin Graham

Posted: April 24, 2014

The Speed Stick Gear team announced a new partnership with YouTube filmmaker Devin Graham, aka Devin SuperTramp. With this new partnership, the Speed Stick Gear team will proudly sponsor Devin SuperTramp's greatest challenge yet—capturing one of the most extreme stunts he’s attempted. Over the coming weeks, fans who engage with the campaign via social media will have the opportunity to guess the details/location of the yet to be disclosed stunt for the chance to be on location for the shoot.

"Ever since I was a kid, I was borrowing my parents camera to get the shots that no one else could and have continued this passion ever since," said Graham. "It's a crazy amount of preparation and work. Some shoots I find myself hiking 10 miles up a mountain, lowering myself into the mouth of a cave or swimming through shark infested waters... but I love it and I'll keep doing it until the day I die."

It is this dedication and passion that differentiates Devin SuperTramp from other filmmakers. His video releases have become highly anticipated among his 1.7+ million subscribers. One lucky fan will have the opportunity to travel to see Devin SuperTramp take on his greatest challenge live during a shoot this summer. Based on a series of clues tweeted by @DevinSuperTramp beginning today through May 6, 2014 fans can tweet to guess the stunt using #GEARChallenge The winner will be selected the week of May 8, 2014.
