Yes and its free! Happy you

"Anyone interested in the new Inland Surfer DVD can get a free copy by
sending an email to with your name and address (put
Free DVD in the subject line). The DVD covers the basics of safety and
learning how to ride and has a large section of tricks and riding footage.

More bikinis? No, seriously, it was a very good dvd and I appreciated getting it. You did a great job on it. Thanks for sending it so promptly.

I am also very happy to get your video and that finaly somebody decided to make wakesurf video, thanx Mark.

Suggestions are obvious, simply compare your video with others you like, watch the difference and you get it. (I like first Landlock promo video)
i.e. Cut more to get better dynamic in footage.
Maybe use not so slow slo-mo. Shoot all season to get more footage. Show falls and goofy stuff. Bikini too

Use more manual functions than automatic on your camcorder - for sharping and ligth stability (i.e. manual focus, white and colour balance). Rent camcorder with bigger lens and 3CDDs for better picture. Use external mic with that antiwind foam and you get way better sound. Or just simple stick piece of thin foam with double sided tape over grill of your build in mic - it quite reduce that nice windy noise.

Take care bout "special" effects. Audio level - when somebody talks to camera and turn his head away and level of sound drops (use microports etc.), hairs in picture (but I love this touch).

Take care with postproduction (graphic, efects, maybe colorgrading) and good encoding to DVD format (its critical) and you will be surprised what you can produce - your work is worth of it.

Or call my brother. He is director of photography in Chicago and he would like to try some wakesurfing for sure :-)

You are welcome, just "few" tips

Or you can be first in industry and jump to Hi Definition bandwagon and shoot instead of DV on HDV format.
Check stuning difference

or this beatifull big UW videos files

Instead of 480 lines you get breathtaking 1080 lines!! So you resize it down you can produce awesome DVDs with standart resolution and also HDTV version DVD playable in your PC to your HDTV plasma or TV. And in same price level :-).

Look at this 2 sonys addedTroughType=search addedTroughType=search

Smaller one has not so sensitive chip in low light conditions.

So for a price of DV camcorder you get quality of 16mm or nearly 35mm film footage. :-)

Nice cameras. The only problem is we spend all of our money on the boats. How about you get the camera, and you can be our director/camera man for the next vid?

I got my DVD last night.. and watched the whole thing... the interesting thing I found along with my "FREE" DVD was an invoice for $10 COD. I guess i will pay just out of respect for what y'all are doing for the industry, but from here on out i will be leary of any more "FREE" advertisements.

Hey gp, that doesn't sound like Jeff Page at Inland Surfer. He's a standup guy. Drop him an email and ask what's up, I'd be willing to bet he'll make it right.

hay gp I think you boat is sinking, we have sent out over 380 DVD's out and all of them have been FREE except yours sorry dude.
Old     (stevstaf)      Join Date: May 2001       11-18-2005, 5:42 PM Reply   
gp, I agree with Jeff Walker. I'm certain that the $10 COD invoice was put in your DVD mailing by accident. You're the only one I've heard of that got an invoice so I'm sure it's a mistake.

hay gp, You are looking at the ten dollar
C.O.D wrong. It's if you place an order for product and want pay by the way of C.O.D
[ collect on delivery ] it will cost you an additional ten dollars. The DVD's are free to
promote our sport.

Right on! Thanks for the clarification! It is just a coincidence that the DVD is listed at $10 above on the price list and that is also the price in the COD space so i figured i owed "cash on delivery".

Thanks for the DVD I enjoyed it very much.
