It's about time we got a snowkiting DVD in that was made in the US. We'll certainly give the Euros credit for pushing this sport into the future, but we've always had some killer locations as well, and some core groups of diehard snowkiters pushing the limits behind the scenes. Paul "Motz" Macaj is a pioneer of kitesnowboarding and a pro level guy at that. Now he's released his first video that not only has some insane snowkiting in it, but chronicles some history of the sport as well.
In fact, the video starts out pretty funny, with some clips of how goofy they were back when they were learning - you know, all of five and six years ago. Then the action ramps up into the modern era, culminating with the section on Guillaume "Chasta" Chastagnol, which will quite honestly leave you shaking your head in disbelief.
The Next Chapter is filmed nearly entirely in Colorado, but in extremely varied terrain, from super flat powder, to bowly skatepark stuff, to back country heaven. And it is nearly 100% kite snowboarding, but the bonus section with Alex Peterson on skis is a must-see stunt. Other riders include Motz, Mark Doyle, James Brown, and friends. But just for the 20 minute bonus section with Chasta is worth the price of admission.
