Kevin did not break any gear during the big days
Continentseven: You are well known for high end film equipment. Did you bring any new innovative cams or additional accessories kit?
Kevin Pritchard: Not really. Just my faithful Sony FS 700 and the water housing for it. The first three days it was too big to swim out there for water shots, there was so much water moving around. The Sony loves a nice water shot so I really tried hard to get a couple water shots out there!
Continentseven: What’s the most important thing to bring to Baja?
Kevin Pritchard: Hmm, that is a tough one. Besides your windsurfing kit, I would say water! It is a long drive and while you can get water when you are down there, if you break down out in the desert it could be deadly. You also have to be on your safety game. Driving down there is pretty tough, you need to be aware of what is going on, and you don’t want to mess around.
Continentseven: How far away from the spot are the next market, patrol station, paved road, hospital,windsurfing shop?
Kevin Pritchard: It is a 2 hour dirt road to where the market and gas station is. The hospital the same, but I don’t think you want to count on that hospital. A windsurfing shop is not till back in Los Angeles. Although the guys at Solo Sports do have some gear you can negotiate for!
Continentseven: Have you already decided on your next trip/video?
Kevin Pritchard: I am in Portugal as I type! On my way to Cabo Verde! Not sure if we will have time to film stuff, but I am going to try!
Continentseven: Do you plan to travel to spots in Europe, Asia, Australia or Africa to produce any new episodes in the near future?
Kevin Pritchard: I would really like to do something in France and Ireland. That would be fun!
