Thank god I found the time to edit this video, but the backlog of clips to edit is still huge...
This is the first longboard sailing video that I shot from the front of the board.
Even though the waves were small and the wave sailing action is somehow repetitive, I didn't feel like cutting it more, because I think that that mix of blues (the sail, the water and the sky) is just a pleasure for the eye...
So, excuse me the lenght (6 min.) and let me know if you agree with me.
I also saved it at the max resolution that WMM allows (2 Mbps) and the resulting file was 92 MB. I assume that youtube compresses it, but let me know if you could watch it ok.
Please, somebody gimme a feedback on this!!
Choosing the soundtrack was, as usual, the best part. Incredible number of good songs at around that lenght. Here's a few that didn't make it:
- Kruder Dorfmeister, Useless (this one in particular was bloody perfect...)
- Pink Martini, No hay problema
- Porcupine Tree, Fadeaway
- Ziggy Marley, Kosmik
- Lucky Dube, My game
- Zero 7, Likufanele
and a bunch of others, including Mozart, piano concert 21, second movement Andante...
But the final preference went to an italian rocker... actually to THE italian rocker: Ligabue.
I love the simplicity of his songs (most of them are four basic chords) and the lyrics go straight to your heart.
On September 10, 2005, Ligabue held a concert in Reggio Emilia to celebrate his first 15 years of activity. This attracted the record audience for a single artist pay concert in Europe, with a crowd of 200,000 coming to listen to his songs.
Too bad I wasn't there...
If you like the song, search Ligabue in youtube and listen to plenty more...
PS. Don't you love those "related videos" that youtube shows at the end? Check the second but the last: Volcom Stone's pufferish surf series and watch the kids ripping at Pavils...
Surfing, what a superior sport!
PPS. Little north bump on its way for tomorrow. I predict (and hope) head high at least. Yu and hu!
