4. Don't Let Go
Not all DVDs need to be able learning something though, sometimes we just want to sit back, relax and watch some awesome windsurfers in an equally as amazing location.
Don't Let Go, in one such film that not only has the action and locations. but inspiring stories and insights into the riders (Robby Swift, Boujmaa Guilloul, Camille Juban and Flo Jung) too.
An absolute must watch. Click here for more info and to purchase.
[part title="5. Just Like That"]
5. Just Like That
Just Like That is the latest movie from Umi, following Thomas Traversa and Alex Mussolini. It's another amazing watch with some great, gritty action with a real Euro feel. Definitely hoping this will be in our stocking!
"Just Like That is about two European kids from a small sea without waves, who had dreams and dedicated their life to what they loved the most : wave riding.
"Buy this DVD if you’re looking for new destinations to go on a windsurf trip, want to see some big and gnarly winter wavesailing in Ireland, nice waves in Galicia, Indonesia, and New Caledonia; if you don’t like crazy futuristic movie effects and don’t want to see any acting or cheesy story telling; if you are not expecting some Ho’okipa action or helicopter shooting and want to see something cheap and real; if you like old cars, Nokia 3310 and vintage clothes, old and classic stuff. And of course if you have a lot of cash and don’t know how to spend it, then you should definitely buy many many many copies, just like that…"
