Nice documentary
8 April 2013 | by otaku_125See all my reviews

This documentary shows some years and tournaments of one the most talented windsurfers in the world.

The director tried to show a personal perspective of some unknown heroes in this sport or at least unknown in Venezuela, showing that contradiction of fighting for your country and lacking the attention and support of people there.

So, basically the movie is targeted to Venezuelans, because most of those athletes are unknown for Venezuelans and they fight for a country that knows so little about their triumphs. They lack government support, private support and people support.

In my case I didn't know much of those guys, in fact I've only heard of one of them. So, thanks to this movie those guys receive a visibily they didn't have, but they deserved.
