Robbo Stabilized

Sunday, February 22, 2009 / Posted by Rambo / comments (1)

I'm constantly working on ways to improve video footage shot from moving boats or Jet Ski's. I've written a script for my camera program to stabilize extremely shaky footage, and I'm happy to say it works fantastic considering the boat is moving at 25 - 30 kph and the camera is hand held in a fig rig.

This next short video sample is a split screen format with the original footage on the left and the Stabilized on the right.

Va'a Kane

Monday, February 16, 2009 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

Thibert Lussiaa has asked me to help promote this race both here and around the world. He knows we are forming a Va'a Association in Oz and now have craft available here through Zulu and wants paddlers to register their interest in this race. He tells me that lot's of Tahitian Top paddlers have agreed to support the event and Marsh "Tiger" Taylor has a new V1 being made especially for Ocean racing at this event that is much shorter than the sprinting V1.

From Tiger re the new Va'a

This canoe is an entirely new model. Like the old sprint model, the hull comes from va’a builder Philippe Bernardino of Tahiti. Its made for open water conditions. Smaller in volume, as the sprint model used in the IVF sprints is considered large, it has more rocker and no “V” through the center of the hull. It is looser and more maneuverable. The cockpit is high to keep water out. The canoe will have a skirt if one chooses.
