There was one - the 2012 Underground Speed board, but the video wasn't as good as Alex's and I thought I might get away with it because Alex has a fin on the nose for riding it back to the start. :oops:



And a video from the North team which has some good slow motion of race board trim and control.


hahaha the cameraman cuts johnny heineken out of the scene in the podium part

What type of board are you riding? What type of racing are you doing?


i am living in mexico aswell, i see youre from progreso great spot, i kite in bucerias north of pv..
i used to race speedboards but now im into course racing whole diferent thing!


I was in Bucerias last year for the comp. It's nice. There is a huge course racing scene up there as i'm sure you know. I would just get Mike (the windsurf guy) to coach you or something.
