So I have had some really good feedback on the Scotland vid, but also some very angry and also some concerned and constructive feedback. It may be hard to believe for some, but my intentions for the video really were good. It seems I may have missed the mark somewhat and was possibly a little naive about my voice over on the video. I have taken out most of the voice over to exclude spot names and some other stuff I mentionedand replaced the video on Vimeo with the new one. That means that any site with the video embedded will be showing the new one too. (I have uploaded and swapped out the video at the time of writing this, but it may take a couple of hours for the new upload to be transcoded by Vimeo)
I realise that for some it may seem to be too little too late, but I do apoligise to anyone that was offended and, for lack of a better phrase, pissed off by the voice over.
This was our first video and we are learning as we go so a sincere apology to the local surfers in the area and I hope you can believe that no harm was intended and this really was a case of believing I wasn’t giving any locations away.
The video is a little weird without the voice over and when I get some time I will do a new one that hopefully appeals to everyone.
To everyone who commented, thanks very much. I’m sure I still won’t be welcome in a lot of places, but I hope you’re all getting waves wherever you are and if you’re ever in East London, South Africa when we’re back there get in touch and I’ll take you surfing.
