Come on guys! Are we really that cheap? How do we expect our fav riders to make these great vids for less than $20. A years worth of filming, sometimes more. Exotic locations to mix it up, all the abuse on there bodies. High quality editing and HD. We gotta support them a lil more and pay them for there good work. Dont you think all that work is atleast worth $39.99. Sorry for my rant.......

I assume they price these how they think profits will be maximized. For example, selling 1,000 copies at $25 is better than selling 500 copies at $40. Most people aren't going to pay $40 for a wakeboarding flick.

I agree with you eubanks, i understand that. But im not talking about the profitablilty of the flick. Im talking about supporting the industry, and sport we love. From someone who sees pros having to work a side job because theres not enough support from sponsors. I just think that makes us look like a bunch of cheapskates....LOL!

I hear you. You know what...the next time you buy a wakeboarding film buy it from those that produced it and give them 200% of their selling price. I bet you they won't turn it down and you would be doing your part in supporting the industry.
