    South Tower Video - Kitesurfing under the Golden Gate

    I have been working on filming this and editing it over the past year and its finally done!!
    Watch the whole thing and I welcome all comments and critiques
    Please repost and share the video if you can.

    Enjoy!



    A day at the South Tower. Filmed over the past year showing an average day of kitesurfing and life around the South Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge... where all the good wind and waves for are centered at.
    Kiting at Crissy also has LOTS of perils and things that can (and do) go wrong out there even to the best seasoned local riders.

    Always something fun to do and watch out there. Kiting, surfing, SUPing, windsurfing, sailing, swimming, tourist watching, etc

    Great job!

    The multiple cameras makes all the difference. I can only imagine how much material you had to work with and how difficult it was to edit it down to this 7 minutes.

    Outstanding work!

    Great work. That was a fun video . I guess these guys are better off kitesurfing than sitting around in an asylum (where they really belong).

    Out of interest, what camera(s) were used to take that footage? Also, what editing software do you use?

    THanks guys,
    Parking, Yeah it took a lot of time (maybe 48+ hrs nonstop) of time and several cameras to film and edit this over the course of a year. Not to mention years of learning to kite. LOL
    Ralph, I used iMovie to edit it and a Canon 7D to film most with a little shot on a GoPro.
