Re: Two very confused windsurfers

I liked it, but what is Continent Seven? It's shot in Germany, not Antarctica.

My favorite WS video of all time was Camanchaca about two windsurfers who travel through southern Chile and Argentina to windsurf in glacier lakes and the waters around Tierra del Fuego. We got to visit all the spots they went a few years ago. Here is the trailer.

Maybe their primary sponser is a 7mm+ wetsuit manufacturer and marketing thought they need some visibility?

I am trying to get Coppertone or Banana Boat to sponser me but they have not called back yet.

Re: Two very confused windsurfers

Sponsorship is not all it's cracked up to be. Sure the money is good but the endless autograph sessions, being spotted everytime you go out in public and the groupies get to be annoying after a while. I finally had to give up my Marine Tex and Duct Tape sponsorships.

Germany was Antarctica last week. Continent Seven used to be Continent One when Pangeia was a thing. Then, like the Beatles and Oasis, there was an ugly break up.

TVAW, stay by your phone. That call is coming any moment. Biggrin

I don't even want to know what a Duct Tape "groupie" is into. Shok

They weren't nearly as bad as the Marine Tex groupies. But they are both good materials for bonding experiences. They were going to make a movie about the Gray Marine Tex but it only comes in one shade.

As for Continent 7 - the trees where pretty much a dead give away.

Steffi Wahl’s tips for Cold Water Windsurfing
Steffi Wahl is a tough woman. Windsurfing in freezing temperature requires a certain dedication. For Steffi an air temperature below zero and a water temperature around zero degrees is no excuse to skip windsurfing. We hooked up with Steffi to speak about cold water windsurfing.

The tribal dancing girls captured all my attention. Is that Brazil?

Re: Two very confused windsurfers

I don't know but I want to go there to find out. I'm guessing it is not Antarctica.
