We uploaded the “7 Sons of Freestyle” movie to our Youtube Channel (Link: www.youtube.com/continentseven).
“7 Sons of Freestyle” was our debut film produced in 2004 and at the same time it was the first windsurfing film dedicated to modern freestyle windsurfing only.
So, on March 12, 2004 we arrived in El Yaque on Isla Margarita in Venezulea, which was THE windsurfing & freestyle mecca in those days. With the idea to produce the first ever freestyle movie three of us, Kerstin, Charly and Chris travelled to Venezuela and filmed 20 DV-tapes with a borrowed camera from Sony.
Riders: Remko de Weerd, Antxon Otaegui, Andre Paskowski, Gollito Estredo, Normen Guenzlein, Ricardo Campello, Cheo Diaz
