Horizon – Vaea Verbeeck Killing it

on

Tip of the hat to Deity Components and Parallax Media because this video of Vaea Verbeeck is awesome.

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.

      You’re welcome! The film gives so much for upcoming riders to learn from and aspire to because it gives the time to appreciate your level of technique.

      Good luck for the rest of the season and we’re all looking forward to your next film…..no pressure but Horizon’s gonna be hard to beat!
