The thing I love about this isn’t the glossy presentation or the New Zealand backdrop or the swirling sound track………it’s the way they’ve captured the elegant simplicity of Vaea’s riding. No whips, flicks or fancy tricks, no fancy video editing or anything other than pure riding.
Whether it be the long lens lateral shots or closer up cornering & trial eating shots, they’ve got it spot on.
Pay attention to how straight Vaea’s back posture is, the angle of her shoulders and elbows, the position and movement of her hips, the timing of her movements against the terrain, the extension of her legs and arms………in short it’s a masterclass of technique.
So so much for your mirror neurones to feast on.
If you’re going to take the time to practice, practice like the elite.
