No story just that?  Unfortunately we see it in the flesh here so having to sit somewhere and watch is hard duty.

I unfortunately did not watch it...so no idea. I was a bit disappointed in The SUP Movie they did through kickstarter. It is amazing to watch the skill but I can get that on youtube.

the cinematography and editing was pretty good...worth the watch....i think the PoorBoyz had a hand in it? or was that something else i saw lately?

i didn't like the primary surfing marketing appeal...all the other genres were  treated as gratuitous:  windsurfing kiting padding.foiling.....i get that that's where RedBull market is and it's the only "PURE"  form.   Don't recall a longboard, and nah the story wasn't really there

SUP the movie was better though..storyline: friendship and travel fun....this was more about skill set...the Paradigm Lost theme was supposed to show that it ain't what you ride....but ....it failed in that way

Drone footage is here to stay though, and that you can't get while on the water...the perspectives are pretty cool

There was less story and travel than in the SUP Movie? (Poorboyz did that too)

I know what you mean. My self, I'd rather do than watch, but it is free and you can fast forward all you want. I enjoyed it but probably won't watch it again.

There was minimal story, I agree. It's weird that at this point they are still telling Kai's story over and over. Next film needs some travel and more purpose.

But it's great to see him go and I loved it. I'm not as mad about the focus. I think his challenge is to be seen as a "real" surfer but we need to remember that SUP wasn't his starting point and it most likely won't be his end point. It's a dot on the graph.

I loved the kite and windsurf footage, as I haven't really seen as much of that and seeing all the pro surfers get on foils and act like kids was fun. Nothing sadder than when a passion becomes work and the tour seems like a grind a lot of the time.

Next time, keep the shooters and even the editors but hire a good story producer and they will make an even better one.

I  liked  that  they  pointed  out  that  a bunch  of  windsurfers  moved  to  the  north  side  of  maui  in  the  80s. Their  kids  grew  up  there  doing  all the  water  sports  and  are now the waterman  stars .

I reckon if we move to Maui you'll do some watersports or the lot like Kai.

Was actually very hard duty for me.  Watched a bit at the beginning then did the FF skip and view for a few seconds at a time.  Then said enough of that.  Real nice footage on some waves -> but kinda got bored pretty quick.  So off and went paddling.  That was a lot better for sure.

I'm surprised people are commenting now that the video is gone.

I will say "It was Excellent"

Probably some of the best surf / waterman cinematography ever.  Great budget, great content.

Given the current passion for Foiling here is the foil segment.  If there is anything that Kai may be eventually associated with it will likely be the low speed adaptation of foils to surfing.

Dave Kalama and Laird tried with big waves and jet-skis.  Too bad the potential audience was ~ 12 people.  This will be much more impactful:
