Watch: I AM ADDICTED | Experiencing Megaloops on Hydrofoil Link in the stories: DocuFilm
Storms are rare in the northeast of Germany. We needed to be patient. But finally we got the perfect conditions for our project.
About two years ago I started a documentary about Hydrofoil Kitesurfer Borja Vellón García. We were able to show his extraordinary passion in that discipline. Unfortunately we missed good conditions for Megaloops and we decided to work on a second part in the future.
In January 2023 the perfect storm hit the coast with up to 40 knots. We only had four days to get everything ready. We needed deep water close to the shore and safe wind directions. We decided to go to Ahrenshoop, a small town in the northeast of Germany. In the beginning the wind was not as strong as expected but soon the sand began to fly.

Under the Hull takes viewers behind the scenes as the Newport, Rhode Island based team lines up against the masters of the sport of offshore sailing – the French – in the build-up to the double-handed race across the Atlantic.
From the building of a brand new, state-of-the-art 60-foot foiling race boat, to the physical, mental and onboard training, the film gives unrivaled insights into the highs and lows as the four sailors, supported by an international shore team, prepared their two entries – Mālama and Alaka’i – for the race of the year.

Without them we wouldn’t experience the real challenge of all the extreme Off-Shore sailing. And, sometimes, as it happens for Solo Challenges, is the sailor itself that becomes his self-OBR

3. Whitbread 1981-1982. The cameras weren’t well-protected. They used the American all-terrain Bell & Howell models. Rustic but reliable.
4. 1989 “I devised a kite to move the camera away from the boat whilst she was underway – obviously, drones weren’t yet a staple back then…” Rick Tomlison. Ph Credits @theoceanrace
5. In 1993 the “official” title was photo and video manager. “At that time, for reasons of fairness between those who had decided whether or not to have a media reporter aboard, you had to choose between photo and video equipment, or the equivalent weight of the equipment in the form of lead pigs” Rick Tomlison.

6. @knut.frostad became CEO of the Volvo Ocean Race and decided to make the presence of an OBR compulsory on every boat. He went on to manage the event from 2008 to early 2016. Today Manoeuvring is prohibited. it’s important to remain discreet and not to get in the way, but if we offer one of the guys a cup of coffee at night, it’s generally appreciated. The idea is to pull your weight, integrate and win over the crew,” @martinkeru Ph Credits @theoceanrace @jrenedo

Another beautiful series from the FFF FIRST EDITION 2022 to watch again: FLITE FOIL BOARD FULL SERIES 🎥 Link in bio
Adventure athletes, Hugo and Ross Turner, have survived a host of world-first expeditions including rowing across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands to Barbados, climbing Mt Elbrus and reaching several “inaccessible” poles.
In this 3 part series of eFoil expeditions they explore some incredible locations using a Fliteboard - from the freezing Alps to uninhabited islands.
“We’re always looking for brands that are pioneering new technologies that help people explore the world around them. Fliteboard is a brilliant new invention that allowed us to explore some remote locations while having the cleaner benefit of being electric powered.
Riding hydrofoils was a completely new experience for us so we had to learn how to ‘fly’ these eFoils at the local Fliteschool. To our amazement we were flying across the bay within the first hour, so it was great to know these were easy to learn.” - The Turner Twins
Written and produced by the riders: Hugo and Ross Turner

Back to Italy, he found Ushuaia Film (www.ushuaiafilm.com), an independent film production company that, in two years, realized many commercials, videoclips and five docufilms, three of which written and directed by Niccolò: The Italian Spirit of Le Mans (2018), Don’t be afraid if I hug you (2020), A Dream Called Vendée

Have you ever seen a big wave in Nazarè?! LAIRD AT NAZARE Full video 🎥 Link in bio
In early 2020 Laird Hamilton, Terry Chung, Luca Padua and Benny Ferris were out with top surfers across the globe in Nazare Portugal to surf waves that come about rarely, if ever.
