*Note: contrary to what the title might suggest this is not an entry-level video. It starts off at the early jumping stage.
Tronolone Production's (Unhooked, Awake) does a great job at filling an instructional void at the intermediate level. Both the VHS and DVD have the unique and innovative options of being able to view either a full-screen version with the kite tricks front and center during the voiceover, or a split screen view with the host's instruction on the left, the action being completed on the right, and text below describing the scene. Definitely a maximum absorption value.
What really makes this video is the professional and technical insight from host Shannon Best. His extensive background in wakeboarding, and understanding of the mechanics of kiteboarding allows him to share some tips that you'll find nowhere else. He pays particular attention to hand and body positions that will definitley help you with all aspects of kiteboarding, and other sports as well.
The video is divided into three sections:
- Body Position
- Load and Pop
- Back Rolls
Plus a waveriding bonus section.
