Windsurfing, The Hatchery, Columbia River Gorge, Loops, Jumps (July 22, 2013)

I recorded this video of loops and jumps on my Gorge windsurfing trip. The recording was from the Hatchery (Columbia River Gorge) early evening on July 22, 2013. July 20 - 28, 2013 was a great windsurfing week to be at the Gorge! Enjoy.

Wow, sounds like you are state-of-the-art with your computer!   I have an older laptop (~3yrs) and can't really handle HD stuff.  Wondering if the Mac's do that better?

Thanks Jim.  I just messed around with the settings and changed the appearance.  Not much to it.  I liked your video also.  I have pinnacle studio and have just got it working and am starting to edit some video myself.  Unfortunately I bought my GoPro before it went wide angle and HD so the quality of the video is not very good.  I just don't want to spend the money on a new camera.  I would rather spend it on a new board.  I did however get the mounting system for the boom.  I am going to try it out and see if I get anything good without the wide angle.  I will probably just get shots of my armpit.

I do have the adobe premier elements, and yeah it locks up.  The Adobe Premiere CS5 is pricey though, isn't it???

The side by side was cool.  I'm interested in knowing which video editor you guys used.

Welcome!  A great time to join while we are buried in snow.  I am over in Whitehall near Muskegon digging out today.  I just joined not to long ago myself.
