Freo Laser surfing

Recommended Posts

You might remember the Rocko to Freo run footage and Freo Laser Sailing footage from last winter, down under winter that is.

We had a bit of a blow yesterday and after racing was canned at Royal Freshwater Bay the boys just could not resist.

 

Enjoy.

Thanks for embedding it Driftwood. Couldn't work out how to do it but then again I had only 2 hours sleep between end of the TDF coverage and kick off for the World Cup Final so wasn't really with it when I posted it earlier.

Rumour has it that these extreme Laser junkies here in Perth have appropriated a clapped out Laser to rebuild special purpose bullet proof for these shenanigans.

 

The narrator on this vid was talking about going out today, more breeze, better angles.

 

Cant get hold of the camera mount, so no go.

 

What is it we say here, pics or it never happened :lol:

 

Expect to see more from these laser hooligans!

Ok, so if work are looking for me, just show them this and tell them I've gone sailing. They can't argue with that, right?

And one day someone will invent the sailboard which will be further developed into a short wave board that will sink if it is not moving...

 

Although sailing a laser in big waves can fun - Used to have a ball off South Head (Sydney) in the right conditions without the hassle of launching in the surf.

what video camera and mount do you use?. The quality of the images was excellent considering it was a grey,overcast day. the laser shots seemed to be steadier than the onshore vision

 

good stuff!

God I wish I were young again. Reminds me of some times we used to have back in the early/mid 80s with Lasers on Lake Mich. Thanks for the trip!

The camera mount was a homemade job comprising of some 3/4 ally tube and canopy fittings which was all mounted underneath the traveller fairleads with some homemade right angle brackets made out of some s/s plate.

 

I know as it was thought up and put together in my shop!!!

Can you answer Scribe's question re the camera Mezaire? Also I'm guessing you've come up with the idea for the reinforcements for the fittings for the bulletproof Laser?

Just a waterproof standard digital, something like the lumix I think.

Definately gusting 30. Waves at that beach don't look like that on a typical seabreeze day and that's 20-25.

Yeh we have a tripod planned for the next onshore footage. The camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1.

Probably something like Adobe Final Cut ( http://www.apple.com...io/finalcutpro/ ), but there may be cheaper software that can do the same thing ..

 

 

Software was an Apple program... not sure what one, is on my friends computer.....
