ok, you guys noticed it just recently? it was actual years ago, but lately it is getting more and more ugly, thanks to those talentless narcissistic kiters using more disturbing soundtracks and lame edit.
how about this one almost two years ago:www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2369209
please, don't get me wrong, i like SOME kiteboarding videos. but not the ones that promote kite brand and not the ones that promote the kiter, pro or not.
all the tricks on those videos are replicated, rehearsed and edited, you never see the original tricks on videos. i don't really care about the styles, but the boots especially make me just wanna puke. really, why don't you wear american football upper torso protective gear along with the heavy helmet with the jaw guard? now that is gonna look really heavy... it is clear that using boots is just trying to look cool. just like those young punks wearing tactical uniforms! in sense of performance it does absolutely nothing.
and thanks to kf i've learned that this most annoying noise in those recent videos is called dubstep. just another totally unnecessary piece of information i didn't really need, but now it takes a piece of my "hard disc" space instead of something really necessary.
i don't know if the authors of the recent kiteboarding videos use those soundtracks for making videos more dramatic or meaningful? but i don't feel that i care...
now, to be less destructive and more constructive: i would like to see videos about:
-how kite and kiter cooperate
-real life kitespots with crappy chop and ugly beaches, not the "butter-flat and the steady winds"
-not the latest "coolest" equipments, because the smartest of us know that newest gear alone doesn't make you champion
-then again, don't make nature scenes routine. use it creatively
