A few of us back in the early years loved the energy in a simple home video called Arcoholics.

Thank you for the link! I really enjoyed watching this time capsule
Strangely, I can see that I’m still working in these figures they were into, but trying to add some variations and style (maybe)
I never tried an Arc, but it sure did look like a serious alternative to tubekites back then.
Too bad their development couldn’t keep up with actual kites…

Space Monkeys .......blow minds back then , IMHO it's comparable to what Santa Cruz -wheels of fire ,or Powell Peralta- Ban this did for skateboarding...
But agree Túnnel Visión it's a masterpiece of kitesurfing....Cabrinha and F-one really know how to make good marketing videos...really enjoied also old Nick Jacobsen's Cabrinha videos
I didn't mind the Winging thing until i saw Wingsurfing New Caledonia from Titouan Galea , this one hooked me into the sport .

Ozone's Ozone DVD which highlighted their Frenzy '05 kite. The 5.5 minute video covers all formats (snow, water, and land). It's the video that really inspired me to pursue kiteboarding. Chasta was the shit!
A year+ later, AutoFocus was released, which was the top video at it's time.
