Anyone know of any good instructional DVD's? There are loads on how to jump/backloop etc, but haven't seen any on how to ride waves.

'Smack', or 'crack' or something by ben wilson is as good as you'll get. Tell you what type of gear you'll need, conditions to ride in etc. Leave a little to the imagination, but i guess you've got to get out there and fill in the blanks?

Have you seen the kite film vids? Available in short low quality clips online.
They 4 wave riding bits and all kinds of other tricks. Not to bad for a quick little freebee.

I bought Smack last week watched it twice the bits of interest are about 5 minutes in total. In terms of info and move breakdown it is way behind the Fat Sand boys Progression series (they have yet to do a wave DVD sadly ) I know wave riding is a much more subjective topic when it comes to style but I was hoping for a lot more info on kite positioning and timing of kite redirection. Out of five I would give it two stars i.e not worth the £20. Any other DVDs out there anyone can recommend ???

Agreed, I am disappointed by this DVD. THe images are amazing but there is little in terms of information.
I though Mark Shinn was wroking on his own DVD
