How To Snowkite
Volume 1

Price $29.99 - List Price $49.99

New snowkite video from Morten Gjerstad comes new up-to-date snowkiting instructional DVD. Like his action DVDs, this one is filmed in stunning hi-definition. Volume 1 is an incredibly thorough introduction to snowkiting with chapters on terminology, equipment, kite flying, foil kite instruction, tube kite instruction, riding basics (edging, turning, upwind), back country riding, expedition kiting, kite repair, and basic jumping - 2 hours in all. Volume 2, when it comes out, will go beyond the basic jump and introduce all the trick jumps and other specialized snowkiting skills. A bit pricey, but all in all the cheapest way to learn to snowkite safely.

New kiteboarding video from Alexis Bilderback Add it all up and this is video rocks. There is a great cast of characters, none of whom is taking themselves too seriously. There are truly insane waveriding locations, and a great flat water section in Cape Hatteras. The emphasis is definitely on waves though, and aside from the unfortunate fact that the waves are mostly lefts (can you tell I'm regular foot?), there is a great mix of strapped, strapless, hooked, and unhooked riding, with no particular emphasis on one over the others. I'm calling this by far the most progressive and entertaining surf footage ever. And it's about time with all the coverage riding surfboards gets in the mags. I don't know whether that's a long-term trend or not but this video isn't doing that image any harm. Great soundtrack, great length at about 1 hour 20 minutes with the bonus stuff just tacked on at the end, and a great soul/surf video feel. Unless Elliot Leboe gets his act together and releases his new video Future This, nothing is going to challenge this DVD for a while.

Ben Wilson has followed up his new action kiteboard video The Unknown Road (which we also have, with a surf instructional DVD. Ben is known for his hardcore strapless and unhooked riding so our first concern was that this would be all about riding strapless and unhooked, which is not the way most people ride. But fortunately it caters to both hooked and unhooked riding, although the word "strap" is rarely mentioned throughout the video. My take is that it's a very good video and very well done, but suffers slightly from "the guy who's teaching rips" syndrome, meaning that it has a pretty high-end emphasis. Some of the feedback about the Real Surf DVD is that it's very basic, and truth be told, that's the way all the Real DVDs are...on purpose. This one is at the other end of the spectrum. That said, there are sections on basic stuff like board and kite selection, safety, basics skill requirements, getting out through the surf, etc. etc. However, it progresses through all that stuff very rapidly. In fact, just about every single topic receives around the exact same explanation time, i.e. short. This keeps the video moving along rapidly and at no time does it become a boring instructional. Smack really starts to shine once Ben gets to the maneuver sections. He breaks down very subtle differences in board turns into different specific moves, and explains how to do them both frontside and backside, which is nice.

Something Stronger

Price $24.45 - List Price $34.95

Morten Gjerstad rocked the world with the release of snowkite videos like Entropy last year. He pretty much made every other DVD look bad after he filmed the first kite DVD in high definition (the clear mountain air doesn't hurt either) and then hit it out of the park with breakthrough performances in snowkiting combined with fantastic editing. Something Stronger is the sequel so this is the one to get for winter 2008. Take a journey to the frontier of snowkiting in the snowdeserts of Norway, the windblown peaks of the Alps, and the bottomless powder of North America. Another hi-def film that fires on all cylinders.

 Surf Advanced Kite Camp

Price $24.45 - List Price $29.95

Welcome to the fourth installment in what will be a 5 DVD instructional kiteboarding video series from Real Kiteboarding - the largest lesson center in the world. Real's Surf instructional kiteboarding video is the first of it's kind in kiteboarding, an instructional video dedicated entirely to riding waves. Although it would seem the direction the sport has taken in the past year is decidedly surf oriented, particularly in the magazines, Real Kiteboarding has incorporated surf instruction into it's lesson programs for several years. Now they have openned the books from their highly touted 3 day Surf camp into this new DVD. Surf Skills teaches all the new skills that you will need, and how to modify some of your existing skills to be successful in the waves. Just a few of the topics covered are circuit training, heading out through the surf, absorbing whitewater, duck diving, kite power, turns, staying upwind, and troubleshooting and safety concerns. Surf Sessions lays it all on the line - jumping off waves, turning on waves, surf style, staying on the face, kite looping, controlling the power, freestyle, aerials, and yes, even getting barrelled. And with all Real instructional DVDs there are massive bonus sections. These bonus sections ensure that you are not just getting kiteboarding instruction, but are also getting some of the more difficult to find information that advance your knowledge and comfort about being a kiteboarder. Always a favorite, is the Coaches Tips section, where the Real coaches tell of their trials and tribulations, and ultimately their successes, that have turned them into some of the most confident and respected riders around. Other bonus sections include Equipment for Ocean Riding (Yes, this video is bow kite enabled), and Keeping it Surfside, which discusses the importance of becoming familiar with and comfortable in the ocean.

SSS (Triple S)

Price $24.45 - List Price $29.95


This is the fifth and final DVD in Real's instructional kiteboarding video series, and this one is a bit different. Instead of a full-blown instructional you get the best of both worlds. On side one, if you will, you get all the crazy action that went down during this year's Real Kiteboarding Triple 'S' invitational contest. And I use the word 'contest' loosely. Instead it's more like a week-long excuse to cut loose and take kiteboarding to the next level. SSS stands for Surf, Slicks, and Sliders, with the event taking advantage of a flexible format, riding the sliders, or flat water moves in the slick, or surf sessions (with or without a kite), and even skateboarding as conditions warrented. The motto of the event became, "The world is not ready.", as the riding was off the scale. Some of this year's invitees included Andy Hurdman, Jason Slezak, Andre Phillip, Davey Blair, Greg Norman, Suzi Mai, Moehao Goold, Shannon Best, Sam Bell, Thomas Kogut, Jon Modica, Dimitri Maramenides, Aimee Rabee, and Evan Netsch. Convinced yet?

Well, if you're not, let's talk about the back-side of the DVD. It is an instructional series, after all, and all the riders give their tips on handling a multitude of high-end kiteboarding maneuvers. Subjects include, getting better pop for powered flat-water moves, tips for unhooked riding, handlepasses, kite loops, board-offs, riding blind, and hitting sliders. And after all that there's an nice bonus section of the unbelieveable surf kiting that went down during hurricane Florence in late summer in Cape Hatteras. Quite an exclamation point to the end of the 5 DVD series.
