I understand the need for edited highlight videos for time sake, but it would be way more instructional to also include the tough times instead of only riding down the face or in the trough all the time.  Stalling out, spinning out (Robin did show one of these), swamping, wave after wave passing you by, ski pointing upwards, missing runs, THEN how you recovered, how hard you paddled, when you paddled, etc would really help in the learning curve.  Hat camera gives a great perspective, moreso than looking backward, or forward from behind the paddler.  Keep them coming, and a perhaps the occasional unedited version.  Thanks


Ok, you got it...  Let me try this: I'll show the slowest kilometre unedited where clearly I'm doing the least right and then the fastest kilometre where I'm doing the most right.

With Worlds just wrapping up, thought I'd post up a video from one our FF team athletes who participated. He's only been paddling a ski for three years - so his progress is just mind boggling.

Inspiring stuff, thanks!
What concerns me is showing the Downwind, Eh? T-shirts and not being able to find them on FF website. Are they available or do I have to get sponsorship?

Hey thanks Crabstick. Faster Farther sponsored the Canadian Downwind Champs, and that was this year's official race shirt. So all you gotta do to get one is come race in 2020!

That is an exceptionally cool video!

I love hearing from people who've discovered our sport and become so passionate about it.
