Ice - dude, that was insane! I have stolen it and dropped it into the BFS thread hall of fame. You just put the Eurpies in the lead for the 2009 BFS Cup.

Holy crap that's some big freakin' sailing!

Thanks for all the nice feed back, really happy you all like it!

It really hard to describe the fun and power in sailing - so really happy we made this video ... When our season starts again, we'll make more!

Smackdaddy: Thanks alot - lets hope we can keep the flag high for the eurpieans

V70

V70 would be an awesome experice! That would be a dream come true any contacts?! ...

We made one dive, into a wave - the boat was almost complety covered in water, as you see in the Volvo Ocean Race videos ... The skipper asked right away.... "excuse me, are we racing V70 now?"....

Great video! My monohull is a Buzzard Bay 14, so a bit more sedate to say the least

Well, not the sailing you might be used to but kinda neat from a rider perspective using a small wide angle helmet cam. A mere 22knots of wind but over 30mph max board speed. Of course this sailing activity is all about going vertical. Quite the rush for this AARP card carrying member; sort of the polar opposite of my Buzzard Bay Cheers!

Really like the angel, when you can see the board aswell You get a better feel of the speed and can see the tricks better...
looks crazy when you're flying over the green fields! Gotta try it one day..

So Iceteam, what's that bag for hanging in the hatch? A water or line catcher? Nice video.
