We have just started up a new video series trying to put as much fun as we can into gear testing.

.

We've got another few episodes lined up and lots of ideas for even more (they're great fun to come up with)!

If anyone has any ideas of tests you'd like to see - let's hear em :)

Have several riders race using the same board models and have each rider use a different light wind kite or the racing kites.

Pump up all of one size each of some manufacturers different kites; ride each one out a ways; maybe a jump or two; come back and switch kites. Offer commentary, opinion, and observations after the back to back tests. Same day, rider, board, wind conditions.

Boards that are best suited for jumping or handling chop?

Maybe ride several sizes of the same board.

Take a batch of kites out and see which one jumps the highest?

Just some ideas.

Hi Pjhardie, the idea is good, the shooting... not so good. To obtain a really good footage, you have to be careful when shooting. During the first part (guys are talking), the leftmost guy is often partly out of the scene. Zooming is too fast. At about 00:37, the head of the guy is out of the scene. At 00:47, the leftmost guys is half out of the scene and so on. To obtain a good footage, you have to choose moment by moment your subject. A guy is speaking? Then shoot this guy, better his face only. Want a group? Must fit the scene, nobody must go out abruptly while shooting. Want to show the board? Then shoot it directly, it is the main subject. When passing from a group to a singular subject, first move the camera, then zoom to shoot the face. Zoom slowly!!
The "action" part is better, only be careful when changing scene, trim the footage so that the subject does not appear and disapper too suddenly. There's a flag coming in and out for a second on the left, cut this part.

Anyway the idea is very good, I really enjoyed the video!

Have fun

Paolo
