Wave-o-rama and all captured with a GoPro HD camera.
Nice job guys!




And, if you miss December, cooler times (windier too),
the same fellow put something together in homage of
a white Christmas (in Oahu). Almost looks like Greg
Noll riding in some of those wave shots.

"Counterbalence 2010
Following the lives of two kiteboarders with unique styles and documenting their attitudes toward life. Patrick Rebstock a strapless kitesurfer searching for waves to ride with his friend Reed Brady a technical freestyler both hit the water"

Hats off to the videographer and editor in creating new and interesting ways to present hand pass footage. That is a huge challenge all in itself.

A big, long jump in stormy conditions. The kind of European squalls that have killed and maimed more than a few riders. They've had some right here in Holland too. See that one windsurfer do an emergency jibe to stay out of the lines? He blew that jump with lines stretched out in front of a bunch of sailers. What's wrong with being a jump hero and responsible?


"We had a wonderfull day on the 3rd of september 2009 in Holland. Winds exceeding over more than 44 knots. Conditions: Sun, rain and thunder, and mostly Storm, storm, STORM!
It was a perfect day with me and Ruben Len10 doing a Stormsjees 3 tour along the coast, which started out of the blue. First spot was Wijk aan Zee for a real hard trashing on Ruben, then off to Scheveningen to do some more. Also there was Eddy Lansink doing his thing to, and very well indeed! "



Here's another clip showing one way to approximate jump height. Still no mention of risk to the other guys on the water posed by the jump.



64 ft., good height. I suspect there have been higher jumps but a big one all the same and with a happy ending but not for lack of trying.

A kiting "documentary" out of Lithuania. I think it was prepared as part of the degree requirements for the maker. It is an intriguing, well shot and edited clip. Not too sure about the name, "Get Trauma." Perhaps it has a different meaning in Lithuanian?



A clip of Aaron Hadlow riding in an interesting setting. The videographer, challenged as always but the prospect of presenting endless handlepasses in an intriguing manner, succeeded! Some nice editing went into this one.

Yes, the HD does provide unusual access to nice images at a great price! Quite a few more GoPro video clips many with the previous WIDE model underwater at: http://fksa.org/forumdisplay.php?f=92 (usually with a green arrow on the subject line).

I am amazed that board leash was used for the flat water condition (Bahamas). Both riders were quite skilled. I wondering

Hard to say why. Could be the meter was running on the expensive helicopter and videographer doing the fly overs and they were worried about board retrieval delays? They can have ripping tidal currents in some of the cuts over there, didn't notice any of those however. In distance races in waves some use them but it is best to avoid jumping, not so in this case. Also, it was a simple surfboard leash too, don't know if he used a weak link either. Anyone understand French, is this a trailer for a longer video?
