Andre Paskowski’s new movie is released! “Rewarded” is an amazing windsurfing clip featuring the multiple freestyle world champion Gollito Estredo. The movie was filmed at Gollito’s home and birthplace El Yaque (Venezuela), in Sotavento (Fuerteventura, Spain) and Tarifa (Spain). The movie follows Gollito’s story becoming World Champion from the beginning using the latest slow motion cameras and techniques.

Filmed by: Sebastian Dörr, Manuel Grafenauer, Andre Paskowski

    Hey Andre, just downloading this movie now. I had seen your others but never bought them. Can’t believe you’re releasing this one for free! I felt so bad so I just bought the Turbopack off your site (support Andre!):

    Keep up the awesome work, your an inspiration!

    Whens the next wave vid?
    “I want to see some big arials” 😉 hehe

  • oh says:

    Maybe it is real. But for me it is very hard to believe that Gollito lived in Favela and at the same time he is windsurfing with 5000$ kit.

    Andre, der Film ist wirklich gut, das publikum allerdings leider, wie man an den kommentaren sieht, _zum teil_, wenger ehh… nennen wir es mal höfflich “offen für Menschenportraits”. es ist im wohlgenährten deutschland aufgewachsen und interresiert sich nur für die Moves, naja, die sich in jedem windsurffilm wiederholenden, etwas zu beliebig reingeschnittenen nahaufnahmen von Frauenhintern stören das publikum auch nicht: ein move – ein hintern , ein sprung – eine titte. das gehört doch klar zusammen. nein nein, versteht mich nicht falsch – ich mag die nakten frauen auch, nur wirkt das ganze hm “etwas” billig. aber damit hat das publikum ja kein problem.

    Aber zum glück müssen die surfer nur eins wirklich: gut surfen können. der rest ist nicht ihr gebiet, entsprechend wenig muss man sich aus den negativen kommentaren machen.
    Aber nicht alle surfer sind so, bei weitem nicht alle, auch ich fand es wirklich spannend golitos geschichte zu erfahren, und ihn als eine echte person, und nicht einen sich hinter banalen sprüchen versteckenden “geborenen windsurfer” kennenzulernen. Ein wirklich spannender film.
    Bitte sich nicht demotivieren lassen und das filmneveau halten! es gibt in der windsurferszene mehr als genug publikum dafür.

  • schleudergang says:

    as oh says, the part where they all tell us about the poverty he came from and the picture showing the kid on a multi-grand kit let questions come to ones mind.
    Anre, how did he manage to start without money?

  • freestylefan says:

    Gollito borrowed gear from the windsurfing centres in El Yaque as a youngster, in return for helping out at the centre and the guys just wanted to help him, most of the gear seen in first years does not belong to him, that´s what I know. Through talent, hard work and dedication, he has made a new life for himself, something some of us will never fully understand, having had mostly completely different backgrounds, with all the advantages that come with it.
