I've mentioned the fact that there's a lot of talent in Cayman at the moment, some of whom are also WATERMAN team riders, and everyone's been out with SLRs and video cameras throughout the season to capture footage to help propel them into the pro-circuit.
I love photography and I've spent a large chunk of my season taking pics for others whilst I was injured. Recently though the Go-Pro has taken over from my trusty zoom lens and I've been exploring the world of movie making. For those who have been hiding in a hole for the last couple of years and don't know what a Go-Pro is, it's a TINY little camera which takes incredible HD video footage. It's waterproof, practically bullet proof and comes with 101 different attachments for your board, bike, helmet, arm, car or whatever else it is you're trying to turn upside down, perfect for adrenaline junkies everywhere wanting to share their experiences with their friends. Shooting half decent footage with it however, takes some practice. And I'm not there yet.
The best thing (in my opinion) about the Go-Pro is the fish-eye lens which means that you can be 1ft away from the rider and still get their whole body and the kite in the frame! :)
Hopefully there's still time to get some more footage before the wind completely dies for the summer. But if not, look out for a video from my upcoming trip to Brazil in a couple of months time....more on that soon....
If you're in Cayman you can pick up a Go Pro at WATERMAN and if you already have one make sure you check them out for new attachments and accessories.
