A little video from kitesurfing this weekend and one from last weekend at the Chew Solo Open. The former is filmed using a W60 and the latter my iPhone4s. Given the quality of the iPhone I am starting to think that carrying just the iPhone and a GoPro for sports trips away is good enough – maybe the time to upgrade to the Pentax W90 is past? A decision that can wait for fund availability.
This first movie below is a rough edit for my first time on the water this year. What’s really helpful to see that I’m dropping my lead arm as I exit jumps and rolls – this probably accounts for my lack of forward motion on landing and hence some of the crashes. Makes me think how helpful video analysis must be for sportspeople – is that justification for a GoPro? Can’t wait to hit the water again to try the roll again without letting go.
Below again is a little video I put together for Chew Valley Sailing after the semi-abandoned Solo Laser open meeting.
