Kiteboarding Exercises with Sarah Ellis

I teamed up with a local kiteboarder/personal trainer/friend, Sarah Ellis, to make a video for an upcoming article in a kiteboarding magazine.  Sarah really is a joy to work with.  She knows her stuff and can deliver in a manner that makes it simple to understand.  I need to start taking some of her advice before hitting the water!

You can find more info about and from Sarah at her site at

Air & Earth – Summer Commercial

Here’s a spot I did for a local kiteboarding and skateboarding shop. Shot with Canon XH-A1, Nikon D80 and a Viosport POV1. Edited w/ Premiere Pro CS4 and AfterEffects CS4.

That’s me kiteboarding at the 16 second mark using a camera rig called a ShadowCam a friend of mine, George from invented.  Really nice setup using carbon fiber polls with the VioSport POV1 camera head mounted on the end looking back at you.  That was shot in Islamorada, Florida.
