Yesterday the new whitewater film by Rush Sturges, Frontier, was played in the Filmhuis Den Haag, the first (and only?) showing in the Netherlands. Off course we wanted to be there as Dutch freestyle kayakker Casper van Kalmthout is in this one. Last year we also enjoyed Dream Result from Rush Sturges in a bar in The Hague, so we didn’t want to miss this one.
After winning two tickets, one through adrenalinesports.net and one from Teva Netherlands (thanks for those tickets, really appreciated!), Ivette and I were set to watch the newest stunts these guys did in 2010. The film contains some really nice shot waterfall rides, but because of the overlighting you could not see the lines clearly. Might be related to the Filmhuis showing and not the quality of the DVD though.
If you want to watch a film you can learn from and get better at kayaking, don’t pick this one 😉 There is not one piece of whitewater in this movie for average boaters like myself. Want to be amazed at what some people do and the risks they take to ride the highest waterfalls and freestyle on the biggest waves, then this is your movie. Want to get inspiration to get on the water, and maybe if you are crazy enough, run the same stuff they do, then you want to watch it over and over again.
Enjoy the trailer if you haven’t seen the movie yet and check it out.
