Watching video of driving and pumping

Postby JS » Wed May 21, 2014 9:26 pm

I wonder how many hours of my life have been spent watching the "waking up", "eating breakfast", "driving to the beach", "kite pumping" and other related parts of kiteboarding videos.

I've noticed that some short kiteboarding videos have almost one half dedicated to doing stuff before actually going kiteboarding.

I'd get it if I was seeing some truly killer gear-carrying or line-attaching style or something, but I'm just not seeing that.

I agree.

But I think, if you are a "non-kitesurfer", and never have seen such a thing/movie before - it is more interesting ?

That is my best guess....

Of course, the idea is to capture "the spirit" of kitesurfing yes, but when you ARE a kitesurfer, it does not have much effect, and we want to see some action instead :roll:

I like it if it helps build anticipation. Sand blowing across a tile floor while the featured kitebabe scarfs down a quick bite, tropical palms quaking in the stiff breeze on the short drive to the beach, her kite fluttering mightily while being pumped up, the launch, then BOOM, some awesome riding...now that's a kite movie.

I don't know Dude , but i could watch That for a while, without
getting Too bummed !! :D
It was the first girl on the google search.

Face-it , we already Seen all the moves a kiter can do on the water ; we Need some
innovation in the filming & editing for kite movies, in order to keep our interest !!
I can't get through more than a few minutes on most videos, without going to sleep.

Yep. i jump straight past all that shit. if theres too much "fluffing" I cancel out of the vid.

Same goes for endless wakestyle unhooked handlepass style rotations. One of 2 is fine. 75 in one vid uncool

Also endless strapless lips being smacked. I get to about 5 lip smacks and i'm done.

Well it is all about trying to tell a story. Pity there is not more creativity.

The old 13 Daze movie had a lot of really fun stuff. You really got the feel the team had a lot of fun together...after that movie I am drawing a blank as to a movie that made me not reach for the fast forward button. I generally start at minute 2 of any movie.

If you are going to make a sick action sport movie, I mean edit, these are all required components. This has been posted before, but describes in detail the requirements for any video.

Yes, that's the kind of creativity I embrace. But not 1:35 of routine normality to introduce 1:42 of kiteboarding, thank you :)
