The Windsurfing Movie
Length / 52mins
The Windsurfing Movie ties together several stories about individual windsurfers who have made their mark on the sport, mostly in waveriding, of course. In telling the stories of Robby Naish, Jason Polakow, Kai Lenny, Levi Siver, and Josh Angulo, Jace Panebianco and John Decasare of Poor Boyz Productions somehow tie together the entire history of the sport of windsurfing with the current state of competitive sailing, innertwining all that with interesting travel and crazy performances from tons of different sailors. And they do it all without a hint of pretentiousness or cockiness that all points to a bright future for windsurfing. Oh, and it was all shot in either 16mm film or HD with a soundtrack that probably cost more than the entire production cost of every windsurfing video put out in the past ten years put together. And they made all this storytelling short and sweet, somehow not overshadowing what we want - non-stop rocking action. Killer video and that's that. Oh, and best sailing award goes to...Jason Polakow at Backyards...unbelievable. You have to have ridden that wave to know what kind of balls that takes.
