Lol, I regret posting. I don't mean the be bumming you out.

Sure I do watch videos, but you know there is a limit to how many times I think it is fun to watch the same episode of Seinfeld too.

I liked the last episode of hidden lines. I like most of the wave riding vids that Reo puts out, or the Boardriding Maui vids, some of the Naish tv episodes, and a lot of the vids that are posted here. Mostly because they provide a mood, or I learn something from them.

The whole thing about Lentens vids is shock effect.

There is a limit to how many times you can watch the same scary movie and not go "ok the dude is hiding behind the door....and why is the token black guy walking around campus on his own?"

..unless it is Nightmare on Elm street...and lenten ain't no freddy.

Well, loops are his TM. But saying that he JUST loops does not give him the justice. Just watch his vid from the Gorge - sweet loops + 3style, some 3sss movies etc. Sure he does not have Uh style of, lets say Hadlow.

Lets face it we like to watch what we like to do. if your a wave specialist you will love wave riding vids, wake stylers want to watch wake vids etc.

Each and every style is as boring as hell to watch if your not interested in that style.

Wave vids of dudes endlessly smacking lips down the line bores me almost as much as wake style. I can watch toby's airstyle for a couple of mins before i'm bored of that.

But I personally love a good storm session. And this vid is storm kiting at its finest. I enjoyed it. Yes each len10 vid is similar. but every other specialists vids are similar too.

I want to see a generalist that does in all in one session. smacks lips busts freestyle, boosts huge.... never see that anymore tho.. too many specialists these days.

I think its great watching this not to many people at my local beach throwing down like this oops i mean none!I thought riding and jumping in 35 plus is challenging enough but that right there is sick!

.


there is probably some truth to this. I mean I was pretty amazed the first few times, I saw those loops...

maybe my skillset is not good enough to really appreciate the finer parts of this move..but I do not see the difference between this and the past 10 000 vids he put out. Maybe I am being put off by the cheap.."people think I'm crazy" nonsense. Drink the redbull, do the move, I think people can both see and appreciate that it is extreme.

If I was at the beach I would watch him do that all day! But if I watch some good wave guys or handlepass stuff I loose interest really fast. Storm winds and going for it like LEN10 does is worth getting on tape!

I hear you but throwing down like that is crazy! Like Toby said any kind of equipment failure could be devastating!

For sure there is some marketing with the Redbull drinking and such ... but I really love watching these Megaloop... it is just plain amazing.

I was at my friend Seb's place tonight and he showed me the clip on his big screen and wow... just amazing the way he can pull those megaloops in such big storm... most people would be scared to just go out kiting in such weather... you guys saw how he launches the kite !!! pretty extreme indeed.

Watching golf gets me bored but Len10... nope :nono:
