Hi group,

finally, I put together some samples of my efforts in catching some nice
sculling moments on video.
Originally, they videos were produced for what's called 'TeamRowing'
here, ie. ergo sessions together, trying to match the beat of the songs
with your rowing. Works pretty well, BTW.
That's the reasons why on some shots there are things like iPods
attached. We beat-matched our rowing as well. Then on special occasions
we don't just play the plain music for these erg sessions, but use a
projector and imitate what's seen on the screen. The music has to be
omitted because of legal stuff. And the 'sound' would rather be noise,
so I left that away as well. Use your favourite music or imagination.

Some shots were just to get a feel for camera angles, others were
'produced' for the above, some just out of curiosity. They all feature
our home waters, reached withing minutes from our boathouse. If you like
what you see, feel free to visit us nothern lights. If that's not
feasible and you suffer from less nice waters, get a boat of the
featured brand, they will make any water pleasant to row on. And if
you're near, there's a strong chance for you to try one here...

I was (very nearly) shocked by Henning's blatantly beautiful video ;)  Tsk!

(But, needless to say, a link will soon be added to our FB page).

Thanks, Henning!

Carl

Henning -

Not only do I love the video but I love that it automatically links to my
Google+ Account. It is  +1 if ever I have seen a +1.

I, however, must confess to a bit of envy. In all the years I have sculled
I have never once -- not once! -- sculled on such water. If Sandy and I
ever make it to Germany, would you be willing to take me out?

Congratulations,

Charles

Ps Your ability to row square blades is also enviable.

A beautiful video, Henning, and it would go perfectly with "Jesus Built My Hotrod" if you could lift your stroke rate a bit.

Of course. It's a bit rippled at times, but almost never sees waves the
way you have.

I have to confess it's not as good as it looks: I had the other blade
skimming the surface to have the camera blade go nicely over the water :-).

Wonderful - thanks for posting. I want to be able to scull like that! (although my boat is JUST as nice)
