Made In Ocean

The Russians prepare to take on the world… the world of film that is!

It seems that every pro windsurfer on the planet is busy gathering footage for the next big movie right now. Those involved in Andre Paskowski's (Fanatic, North) 'Second Life' project are in Cabo Verde already. And, news has just hit us that Russian born PWA freestyler, Olya Raskina (JP, NeilPryde) has been in Mauritius filming part of her new production.

Raskina commented:

"Over the past couple of years windsurfing has become very popular in Russia with Russian sailors achieving top 10 positions on the PWA World Tour, and a lot of Russian windsurf centres opening up all around the world. However, there's a huge lack of information and footage in our country about our sailors. So, we've decided to change this situation and produce a movie (DVD) with the best Russian windsurfers travelling around the world. 

This isn't going to be a pure action movie. It's going to show windsurfing in all its variety and beauty with Russian sailors of all major disciplines (wave, freestyle, and slalom) getting involved. 

We filmed the first action-packed part in Mauritius over the past few weeks with 3 riders: Seva Shulgin, Alex Zlobinskiy, and myself. Our next destinations include Dahab (Egypt), Chile, South Africa, Hawaii, and some parts of Russia. 

The name of the film is "Made in Ocean" because it is the ocean that inspires us all."
