Feelgood Camp 2016 throwback

No Comments The blog

Every summer since 2011 a small group of kiteboarders has made an effort to get together in the South of Sweden to hang out, catch up and enjoy the Swedish summer’s breeze. Last year was the first time I actually got around to get some video footage and you can see the rather quick and dirty result here. I’m already looking forward to Feelgood camp 2017!

Chapter One – The best kiteboard movie ever produced

The Red Bull media house just released something that will cause a lot of stir in the kiteboard community. Chapter One could be the best film about kitesurfing ever produced (personally I’ll always keep this close to my heart but that’s more nostalgic value than anything else). The picture, storytelling and soundtrack is all second to none. Regardless whether you kitesurf or not, this is a masterpiece to enjoy many times to come.

History lesson – Kitesurf videos from the early days

No Comments The blog

With kitesurfing being an extremely animated sport, and being born right into the Youtube age of internet it’s no wonder the most common media format to be produced and consumed is online videos. From breathtaking pro productions to more or less ambitious amateur GoPro footage constantly being posted you can almost fill your lunch break with new videos every day.

A typical kiteboard video is around 3 minutes long and contains:

A dubstep or hiphop soundtrack
A trip to the spot in a car/plane/longboard…
A rig and pump scene
Girls in bikinis
A bunch of almost identical looking tricks
A few slams

But this post is not about typical videos, it’s about 4 informative videos from the early days when people were experimenting the shit out of a sport that was being pushed and defined day by day.

Upwind – Launch of a sport

Best summary out there of how the sport was born including interviews with all the legends.

Globe Video Mag 1998

Taps into the same story as Upwind but brings additional footage and interviews.

Over The Water

Follows Aaron Hadlow when he was winning the PKRA world title year after year.

Old school action from not too long ago. Gives you a picture of how quickly the styles have developed in recent years.
