Top 5 reasons why we LOVE making a windsurfing movie

Maybe the title should have read, top 6 reasons…

This is probably the main reason why we came up with the idea of producing a windsurf movie. We enjoy pushing the boundaries in windsurf movie-making, trying new angles, working on crazy ideas and filming with some of the best riders on the planet.

travel
The whole team loves to travel. Meeting new people, seeing different cultures, tasting unknown food and showing the magic a place has to offer through the lens. It is an exciting thing to be involved in when you focus all your life on wind and swell forecasts. You never know what is going to happen the next day. Today you sit behind a desk in Germany and the next you stand in board shorts on the other side of the planet, with a camera in your hands, shooting endless waves. To capture the conditions like we see them in reality is a never-ending conquest. We enjoy this step out of our comfort zone.

cloudy days
When we have already had some great days shooting in perfect sunshine, the riders want and need the rest on cloudy days. That means a full day of windsurfing for the camera crew and lots of happy faces in the evening.

Our job never gets boring. If its amazing waves we film from the beach, we film exhausting water session where riders almost land on our heads, we try not to get seasick on a boat, or nauseous from hanging outside of a helicopter at 40 knots. Every day offers a new mission.

movie premieres
It is such a reward that people come to a movie theatre to see what we have accomplished. To experience how they react to the movie. To see them smile, hear their „WOW“ and make them dream too. Priceless.
