Hawaii: A Kitesurfing Short Film

Cabrinha has put together quite an amazing collection of kitesurfing footage in this 12 minute long short film. Among the massive swells of the North shore of Hawaii, riders shred the mounsterous winter waves. With Anders Krüger behind the lens and editing screen, this short manages to give you an idea of just how majestic, and threatening, the area can be.

STX: Beauty and Kiteboarding [SWZ Feature]


Seeing how Sidewayzine is currently only a one man project, progress is... slow, to say the least. But, having said that, I can gladly present to you a project I've been working on with my friends at the Leading Edge Kiteboarding School in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, and Ocean City, NJ. We had a full week of great winds to get some real nice footage in the sunny paradise that is St. Croix. It includes footage of the island, the owners of the school (Chris Doyle and Sara Seaver), and their students strutting off their newly earned skills. The final clip nearly killed Chris and myself when an oversized wave plowed into us while at the nearby tide pool.  I, of course, was standing over a hole and filming that a month before my arrival, someone was sucked down, washed out to sea, and died. They were also probably hit by one of these huge waves first. This prodution has been underway for four months, and now, it is ready for the mighty interwebs!

Take a look at the beautiful island of Saint Croix in the US Virgin Islands with The Leading Edge Kiteboarding School, as the owners Chris Doyle and Sara Seaver kiteboard in paradise.
