I guess that it is a good video because when I try to get it I receive:

Stoked you guys like the flick, it's just the short version, the long version will be available on DVD along with "Shades of Green" in a few months.

BTW - The site is back up, we had it crash this morning! Sorry about that.

If any of you guys even care, on the bigger day at the end of the film, we were on 5m kites smoked out of our minds in the gustiest winds ever. I think my kite was in the water more than the sky, so it was kind of scary coming onto the waves knowing your kite could fall out of the sky anytime - fun though.

Cross backwash, chop, unpredictable wave, rocks, gusty wind. It all seemed to be the sort of stuff that made the decision to go strapped in the past. Interesting to see it ridden strapless at such high speed - and staying on the board.

Excellent video!! Can't wait for the long version :jump:

For once though I'd like to see the camera stick it out a bit longer on some of the kiters who get eaten by the waves... just for fun cause I'd like see the recovery process :) Do they actually relaunch or do they just wash ashore? What goes on there? You know, do it for us 9 -5'ers who only see real waves in videos :thumb:

Great movie - those boys have big kahoonas - the conditions in the big wave section at the end look insane
keep up the great work and thanks for sharing

Video was good, but the reality show style "confessions" really take away from it. The first ~13 mins where mostly talk, covering arrival, driving the winnabago, fixing a leak, talking about conditions, etc. If I am going to buy a DVD, I expect more action less talk. My only suggestion would be to maybe have a mix of music and voice over while showing the action. I was very impressed with Ben's strapless riding, so hope that the final DVD will have different editing.
