Cool software effects, but waaay over done. Not one complete trick start to finish in the whole video! Watch it without the sound and you will get dizzy.

Really? I thought it was unreal. That's the first kiting video I have ever watched that made me want to kite right then and there.
I have a pretty good sound system hooked up to my computer, I wonder if that made a big difference?
Without the music, that video wouldn't make sense, that's for sure.

Yeah. Well I confess, I love the music in it and the timing of the edits. Outshined is one of my favs.

It is kinda overdone (in a way) but I thought it captured the emotion of kiting pretty well. The camera shots were crisp with color etc. I liked how he said "I am just bullshitting" about the kite, that cracked me up and the Beavis and Butthead thing about your kite sucks was funny too.

All the moves he does are so far over my head, that I wouldn't watch the vid to learn (like Billy does). I just watch for a "Rocky" type inspiration.

pretty damn amazing all around..

tho i agree with tom that seeing the full trick does give me more of a WOW than fancy editing..
but then again, this is some seriously top quality production work. edits are amazing and they really showcase the sport.
probably the best video i have seen that captures the raw power of kiting..

for some AMAZING footage of complete tricks.. this one cant be beat:

http://www.kiteforum.tv/component/op...025/Itemid,30/

the kiteloop Len10 does at about the 2:06 mark is simply jaw dropping. can you imagine rocketing across the sky like that??? and hes in breaking surf too. WTF?!??!?!?!

this one has some really clear shots of how to hit certain tricks, and you can go through it one frame at a time...

hmmm.

kgb
mobe
etc..

all look like the same trick over and over and over again.

i know how insanely difficult these are and how amazing Alvaro is but its just not pleasing to me to watch over and over again.. jump, spin, pass, land.
jump, spin (a little different), pass, land..

wash, rinse, repeat.

as a spectator, i'd take one of Billy's 40 foot board-offs any day.

Well, I agree mostly... Ruben does the same thing over and over... it actually gets boring unless he throws in a kiteloop with it. I think he is a crazy good rider, but I think he sort of lacks developed style... his moves look abrupt and forced... sort of jerky even.... vs Billy's smooth handlepasses that look like one smooth fluid movement. Thats something that comes with age and experience not balls out determination.

Speaking as a spectator of course because I can't do anything these guys are doing.
