Been busy with some car problems, but I finally found the time to upload that clip that shows both a kitesurfer and Kevin Pritchard kind of struggling to make it back in.
Talking about videos, I need to find a good video hosting system. In fact:
1) the video uploading process of blogspot.com sucks. Very often it gets lost somewhere or it generates a mistake of some sort.
2) I wanted to try Vimeo for the first time, but when I uploaded the above video, I had to wait 135 minutes before it was processed.
3) I liked youtube so far, but I just received terrible news. Two of my videos have been muted because "A copyright owner has claimed it owns some or all of the audio content in your video".
The videos were: 09 ultralight superfreak test and 10 18 07 kanaha wavesailing.
Both had songs of my favorite band: The porcupine tree. I've been following these guys for a while, been at 6 or 7 of their concerts and tried to promote them as much as possible (for example through my videos). I just can't help it... I'm taking it a bit personally!
Those videos won't be the same without that soundtrack.
And if I can't use a song as a soundtrack of a video, a big thick slice of fun is taken out of the process.
I need to find a solution. Any ideas?
Well, finally the day after the vimeo version was ready and I thought about publishing it too to see the difference.

Definitely way better quality. Still, I like the exposure that videos on youtube get independently from the blog. Mmm... maybe I'll use both!
Oh yeah, I forgot about the youtube high quality setting. Here it is.
