GoPro footage of the final round of Saint Peter’s Fiesta Greasy Pole Sunday, Kyle Barry’s win, and the triumphant swim to shore.
Pretty exciting to be in the midst of it….even if my board is now covered in grease.
Good times. Congratulations, Kyle!
IT’S NOT EASY BEING GREASY!

Congratulations to Kyle Barry, the 2014 Saturday Greasy Pole Champion! This was Kyle’s second win. He was also the 2013 Friday Champion.
The first clip is especially Felliniesque but then again, the entire time I am shooting the greasy pole I feel as though I am in the midst of a Fellini film. Friday’s and Sunday’s films are coming in the next few days, with some Very Fun Footage.
I Loved this song when first I heard it and thought it perfect for Greasy Pole Walkers. Written and performed by Fitz and The Tantrums, “The Walker,” (that is really the title of the song!) is from their second album, More Than Just a Dream.
