In the last years windsurfing has reached an unbelievable level. The freestyle and wave circuit is basically ruled by a group of kids between 18 and 25 years of age. Plug n’ Play follows this groups of kids like Ricardo Campello, Kauli Seadi and Konan Lang at the worldcups of Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura as well as at there homespots in Brazil and Venezuela. We experience them play with boards and sail and see them doing moves only two years ago nobody dared to dream about.
Head to head races with 35 knots of wind, spectacular crashes and manoeuvres at top speed. This is what the new PWA discipline called Super Cross is all about.
Plug n’ Play catches the historic moment as a new discipline is born and features it with impressive Helicopter and POV Perspectives. Plug n’ play shows the future and tells us of the past. We find out about the first windsurfers at Hookipa and learn from Gerry Lopez who started the watersport called Wavesailing.
A portraits of windsurfing stuntmen Robert Therietehau shows him not only on his favourite stage, the windsurf world cup Sylt, but at his trainingrounds on Maui Hawaii. We find out about his breathtaking free time activities at home on Tahiti were he likes to play with death bringing animals.
They used to be the biggest opponent about ten years ago, today they travel together. We jump in the car with Robby Naish and Björn Dunkerbeck as they go on a search for sacred waves in the Australian outback.
The Hawaii part tops it all and leaves no time to wake up from the endless dream of the deep blue ocean under windblown palm trees.
We see all the professionals as they push themselves into the obits. The Fanatic fotoshooting at Gran Canaria gives us an idea of the hard job of a professional windsurfer. Rik Fiddicke takes us on his 2 year worldtrip and Peter Garzke shows us the hawaiian playgrounds on Oahu as he mounts his camera at any possible part of his gear.
Within the last two years more and more professional windsurfers organized themselves a digital camera. We collected their footage and found lot’s of interesting sequences. There is no continent they haven’t been and no rules they didn’t break So in the end this video production is a world guide for windsurfer. It for sure makes you want to plug in your rig and go play.
