Windsurfing from the air (with some kites)

Another amazing quality video from Andrew F at Long Reef from the good southerly wind DS we’ve had of late. I know this is mainly windsurfing but there are some kites in the video so you may recognize yourself if you look hard. Be sure to watch it in full HD quality if you can. Andrew is getting pretty handy with his DJI Phantom, make sure you also check out his other quality videos over on vimeo.

Quad-copter footage at Long Reef

Hi All,

It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything up. Not much has been happening in the way of wind recently with only a few days kitable over the past few weeks. The dry spell has ended with a just about kitable SW’er blowing since Friday. I was lucky enough to get out and have a great session on Friday in the pissing rain, managed to jag a heap of good waves and a few big rain drops in the eye balls!

Saturday and Sunday saw some gusty and flukey conditions up on the beaches, down south at Dolls would probably have worked well or Boat Harbour. These lacking conditions were a perfect opportunity to get the new quad copter drone doo-dad out in some wind and have a crack at shooting some kiting. This is the first crack I’ve had out in a decent breeze and it handled it superbly.

Check out the footage that I whacked together. This is straight from the chopper with no extra stabilisation done to the footage.

Cheers
