Windsurfing Video News:
Still No Rain!
This drought is pretty unbelievable. Some say it may be the worst in some 1200 years. Normal drought years seem to be pretty windy because of the high pressure that parks itself nearby, blocking the storms, but this year the wind has not been good so there goes that theory. But let's talk about videos because at long last there is actually something to talk about. We finally have a new action DVD (and a new SUP DVD). If you want to see psycho conditions and the world's best put to the test then you've got to get a copy of the Red Bull Storm Chase. Insane.
Otherwise, we have Andre Paskowski's DVD Below the Surface. If SUP is your thing then check out The SUP Movie. If you recognize the style of the title then you'll figure out that this was done by Poor Boyz Productions, who did The Windsurfing Movie. Shot in the same style, this film follows Kai Lenny and his buddies as they push the sport to the next level. We also havea great one in called Driftwood. It's by Peter Trow, who produced both Surface Tension and Chapped back in the day. This is not your typical film. It was 2 years in the making and is a travel/adventurediary of sorts. It has won several film festival awards.
And then there's The Windsurfing Movie II. If I thought the original The Windsurfing Movie was the best windsurfing film ever, what am I supposed to say about the sequel if the sequel is even better? Buy it, I guess.
We've also have the waveriding instructional by Jem Hall and Lars Peteresen called Winner to Wavesailor, which is obviously a sequel to their popular Beginner to Winner instructional video. And likeBeginner to Winner , this DVD is huge...almost 4 hours long. You can't go wrong.
