Words from Geoff Mitton
The movie was made using footage from the last two years. We just came off the best season on record for wind. All spots are within 2 hours of the CBD of Adelaide except one – Robe. We do day trips there – 3 1/2 hour drive each way. Worth it though.
Most of this footage is taken before or after work as many spots are within 1/2 hour of the CBD.
There are quite a lot of good sailors in South Aust. I am certainly not the best or close to it. Ben Severne came from here and I learned how to forward loop whilst sailing with him. We often sail with him in Western Australia at Esperance (we go there about once every two years – 1 1/2 days drive from Adelaide).
We don’t get it as consistent as Western Australia but we do get as much sailing overall as we sail almost all year round. We get fronts in winter and seabreezes in summer.
There are probably 10+ sailors of a calibre between he and me.
There are actually a few better spots than on the vid in South Australia but they are 8 hours from Adelaide.
Looking forward to getting a Soloshot2, the next gen of Go Pro and hooking up with a drone guy for the next vid…
