Big Windy Reviews: â€œWhen I watched â€œBig Windyâ€Â, it made me stoked that Iâ€™m a kitesurfer, we kite when itâ€™s windy & surf when itâ€™s not & it showcases our story with some of the most incredible water vision ever shot in kitingâ€Â - Ben Wilson
"Bilderback takes you out into the line up with him, putting you deep in the action like no one else can." -Jim Gaunt,Kiteworld Magazine.
The dvd's title is a reference to those m a g i c days when you score the perfect combination of wind and waves.
The who's who of wave riding deliver stellar performances including, Josh Mulcoy, Maurcio Abreu, Moehau Goold, Reo Stevens, John Amundson, Bertrand Fleury, Ryland Blakeny, Marc Ramsier and of course Ben Wilson himself. Supported by a cast of the usual suspects including Grant Baker, Jake Gordon and Martin Vari just to name a few.
Coming together showcases a plethora of wave riding locations including Micronesia, Indonesia, Chile, California, Hawaii, South Africa and Australia. This awesome collection of footage and exceptional level of riding will have you frothing for some overseas travel and on the phone to the local travel agent before the film even finishes.
Coming Together features both strapped and unstrapped riding - not something we have really seen in Ben's previous productions. Showcasing all aspects of the waveriding side of kiteboarding, not just the unhooked and unstrapped approach. Illustrating that there are many possibilities for getting out into the waves with a surfboard and a kite. Wilson has always said that he respects all forms of riding be it strapped or unstrapped and here's the proof.
Concept of Motion takes you there - snow kiting the best spots on Earth, the best waves ridden by the best riders in the world, plus whatever the land or sea has to offer. Concept of Motion isn't about the latest trick, it's about the love of the elements we play in.
From Raging Nation, producers of Fluid Revolution, Zero 3, and 13 Daze Concept contains all the riders you expect, with a heavy emphasis on wave riding.
This video won't be out of date when the next new handlepass trick comes along, i.e. tomorrow. With a solid slate of footage, including handlepass moves, board-offs, wake moves, snow kiting, and in particular, wave riding, this video will last. And a great "road trip" feel makes it an experience every one can relate to. Some highlights include the best Lanes (Maui) waveriding footage we've seen, ultra fun and perfect California wave riding, a unique Oregon Coast trip, and some awesome snowking from Mammoth and Lake Tahoe featuring 16mm film footage of Jason Slezak and Mark Doyle.
Other featured riders are Adam Koch, Robby Naish, Chris Gilbert, Elliott Leboe, Stav Narchos, Ben Meyer, Sky Solbach, Paul Macaj, Martin Vari, Mark Shinn, Peter Trow...okay, okay, you get it, good riders. But what we like the most about this video is the effort the producers put forth on all levels. It has some of the best editing, best graphics, best effects, best flow through the movie of anything we've seen, all without being over the top. Darren and Floyd from Raging Nation really stepped up for this one. It was worth the wait.

Welcome to the second installment in the 5 DVD instructional series from Real Kiteboarding - the largest lesson center in the world. The first DVD, Zero to Hero took you from rank beginner to the self-sufficient riding level. Now you're on the water and are ready to step up and do some more serious riding. What may be the most unique aspect of Evolution is not the specific moves and techniques within kiteboarding it teaches you, but that it lays out the most effective way you should go about learning these things. Other DVDs probably wont teach you the specifics of circuit training, or doing downwinders, or how to practice your boardriding, but if you really want to learn quickly and correctly, pay attention to these early sections. Plan out your sessions and stick to your plan - that's the way to get to the next level safe and fast.
Evolution goes into detail about riding both ways - regular and switch, the stop, slide, heelside, and toeside transitions, sheeting and safety systems, riding stance, and finally, the holy grail of kiteboarding - riding upwind. And just like Zero to Hero, the bonus sections are extensive. There is an Evolution level Coaches Tips sections where all the Real coaches share their kiteboarding learning and teaching experiences, giving you several different perspectives. There's massive tech sections on both kites and boards, which will be very helpful as you get to the point in your riding where you can understand the differences in equipment. The kite tech section is especially helpful as it lays out the differences and similarities between 4-line, 5-line, and bow or SLE kites. It teaches you how each are rigged, tuned, and relaunched from the water. At the moment, Evolution is the only kiteboarding DVD that addresses and utilized the new bow kites.
Helpful graphics and every conceivable POV angle - trackingcam, helmetcam, overheadcam, barcam - is used to best demonstrate both proper, and improper techniques. Keep your learning curve vertical with Evolution.
Volume One, Instructional Snowkiting DVD by Morten Gjerstad
Who better to make a great new (and sorely needed) snowkiting instructional video than the maker of the amazing snowkite DVDs like Entropy and Something Stronger - Morten Gjerstad. He is not only an accomplished filmmaker (using all high-definition footage) but also has access to the top riders in the world who are on the cutting edge of what is happening in snowkiting.
This is 2 hours of the most thorough introduction to snowkiting you can imagine. There are chapters on terminology, equipment, location and conditions, kite flying basics, using foil kites, using tube kites (each kite chapter includes information on setup, safety systems, launching and landing, relaunching, and even packing), riding basics (like edging, turning, and going upwind), back country riding, expedition kiting, kite repair, and basic jumping. This is definitely the complete course to becoming a safe and confident snowkiter. When volume 2 is released it will take off from the basic jump and go into all the trick types of jumps and many other specialized advanced snowkiting skills.
Intermediate to advanced instruction by Real Kiteboarding
Welcome to the thrid installment in the 5 DVD instructional series from Real Kiteboarding - the largest lesson center in the world. The first DVD, Zero to Hero took you from rank beginner to the self-sufficient riding level. Then, Evolution improved your on-the-water riding with valuable and hard to find instruction on learning techniques, kite control, stance, and transitions. Now comes the good stuff - jumping.
Everyone loves to jump. It certainly is the main draw that gets people into kiteboarding in the first place. But before Joyride jumps into jumping, you'll reinforce techniques like proper stance, which in turn lead to doing more powerful turns, downlooping the kite, riding faster with more power, riding in control, and riding in a crowd - all things you'll need to know first before hucking your first successful 20 foot air.
In the jumping section you'll learn the mechanics of jumping, progressive edge (kind of teching out with that one but it's key), load and pop jumps, boosting jumps, air transitions, and, of course, troubleshooting. Then it's on to the tricks - boosting grabs, load and pop grabs, hooked in front and back rolls and spins, and an intro to unhooked tricks.
Finally, there's tips for your continued education in kiteboarding. Finally, that is, except for the huge bonus section. There's the Joyride stage Coaches Tips section, the sure to be popular Sleazy-J Grab Tutorial, Gear Tuning, BVI Action, etc., etc., etc.. No effort was spared in bringing on the bonus sections.
You'll notice the filming location for this DVD was moved from Cape Hatteras to the incredible British Virgin Islands. While Hatteras may be the easiest place in the world to learn to kiteboard, guaranteed you'll be booking a flight for points south next winter after keeping your learning curve vertical with Joyride. Keep your learning curve vertical with Joyride, and then Surf, the 4th DVD in the series.
