The Winter Situation - Mathias in France part 2

A Windsurfing video by boards - 8,235 views



The new Rock-n-Rohwurst production is the sequel of the already very successful first video about windsurfing in Southern France published a few months ago. (

The major challenge was trying to make the best out of difficult conditions and later the best out of bad-light-footage. It's not summer, it's winter! We want to show what windsurfing in Southern France is really like &#xu2;013 far from stereotypical images of palm beaches and turquoise waters. In this clip the windsurfing takes place near the Rhône rivermouth where the oil-industry provides a dark background that clashes with pictures of the infamous flamingos and natural salt water lakes. You can nearly feel the cold and smell the oil even though the deceiving blue of a sky that has been deprived of clouds by the strong mistral winds suggests some warmer temperatures. This video is the result of our passion for the sport of windsurfing. Its goal is to provide its spectators with some quality images despite it being a no-budget production. Just like the first Rock-n-Rohwurst production the video is a result of a collaboration between Mathias Genkel as the windsurfer, his girlfriend Julia behind the camera and Johannes Neumann as the editor who edited this whole piece within one weekend!

Now sit back, put it on full screen, switch on the volume and enjoy! Ah, and don't miss our special-guest in the end-credits... ;)

Again, all filmed with a very simple pocket-camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1.

Music by: The Naked And Famous - Young Blood; M83 - Graveyard Girl; Caribou - Melody Day.
