How to Snowkite Vol 1 Basics DVD
Who better to make a great new (and sorely needed) snowkiting instructional video than the maker of the amazing snowkite DVDs like Entropy and Something Stronger - Morten Gjerstad. He is not only an accomplished filmmaker (using all high-definition footage) but also has access to the top riders in the world who are on the cutting edge of what is happening in snowkiting. This is 2 hours of the most thorough introduction to snowkiting you can imagine. There are chapters on terminology, equipment, location and conditions, kite flying basics, using foil kites, using tube kites (each kite chapter includes information on setup, safety systems, launching and landing, relaunching, and even packing), riding basics (like edging, turning, and going upwind), back country riding, expedition kiting, kite repair, and basic jumping. This is definitely the complete course to becoming a safe and confident snowkiter. When volume 2 is released it will take off from the basic jump and go into all the trick types of jumps and many other specialized advanced snowkiting skills.
Something Stronger DVD
If there ever were a DVD that changed our expectations of not just snowkiting, but filmmaking in general, it was the release of Entropy last year by Morten Gjerstad. As the first kite project shot entirely in high definition, combined with breakthrough snowkiting performances and fantastic editing, it was simply stunning. Now, from the same minds comes Something Stronger.
Take a journey to the frontier of snowkiting with the world's elite riders as they explore the vast snowdeserts of Norway, the windblown peaks of the Alps and the bottomless powder of North America.
A High Definition film that fires on all cylinders to bring you big air, epic freeriding and cutting edge freestyle. Something Stronger was shot entirely in High Definition video in Norway, France, USA and Canada during the 2006/07 winter season. Featured riders are Claes Lundin, Petter Johnsen, Fabio Ingrosso, Sigve Botnen, Bjorn Kaupang and Remi Meum.
Morten Gjerstad rocked the world with the release of Entropy last year. He pretty much made every other DVD look bad after he filmed the first kite DVD in high definition (the clear mountain air didn't hurt either) and then hit it out of the park with breakthrough performances in snowkiting combined with fantastic editing.
Something Stronger is the sequel so this is the one to get for winter 2008. Take a journey to the frontier of snowkiting in the snowdeserts of Norway, the windblown peaks of the Alps, and the bottomless powder of North America. Another hi-def film that fires on all cylinders.
Once again the performances on the snow behind a kite have gone to another level. Crazy kite loops and psycho handlepasses, and even double handlepasses abound. Combine that with with more stunning cinematography, crazy locations, a great soundtrack, and great editing, and you've got another jaw-dropper. Wow!
Coming Together: Ben Wilson DVD
The film's title is a reference to those magic days when you score the perfect combination of wind and waves. The film contains a collection of footage of some of the world's top kitesurfers smashing waves and getting barreled in exotic locations from every corner of the planet. The who's who of wave riding deliver stellar performances including, Josh Mulcoy, Maurcio Abreu, Moehau Goold, Reo Stevens, John Amundson, Bertrand Fleury, Ryland Blakeny, Marc Ramsier and of course Ben Wilson himself. Supported by a cast of the usual suspects including Grant Baker, Jake Gordon and Martin Vari just to name a few. "Coming together" showcases a plethora of wave riding locations including Micronesia, Indonesia, Chile, California, Hawaii, South Africa and Australia. This awesome collection of footage and exceptional level of riding will have you frothing for some overseas travel and on the phone to the local travel agent before the film even finishes. "Coming Together" features both strapped and unstrapped riding - not something we have really seen in BWS's previous productions. Showcasing all aspects of the waveriding side of kiteboarding, not just the unhooked and unstrapped approach. Illustrating that there are many possibilities for getting out into the waves with a surfboard and a kite. Wilson has always said that he respects all forms of riding be it strapped or unstrapped and here's the proof.
