“It’s again time for speed here in Holland. The autumn and winter storms will provide for sure some more cool footage for the upcoming movie Ghosts of Speed. In the meantime we realized this short video about the tuning of racing sails for speedsurfing. It’s interesting how the riders have different preferences in matter of tuning. That’s why we asked them to explain what is important and what to check, in order to get the best trim. Interesting video also for the freeriders looking for their maximum speed.” (Angelo Pecere, Director of the movie Ghosts of Speed documentary)
