    Default Surfing Portugal

    Hello guys,

    I recently returned from a surfing trip in Portugal, which was a really amazing experience. I took my camera and a gopro with me to capture the vacations and this is the movie I came up with in the end:

    I only regret I didn't take the tripod with me - as you can see the shots are pretty shaky. Please, share your thoughts about it, I would love to hear criticism and/or advice from people as excited about videos as I am

    I thought I would give this video a go thinking it would be another one of those UN edited holiday snaps. Have to say pleasantly surprised looks great fun, fast paced with fitting soundtrack, good edits, I liked the split screen additions too. great job well done.

    I agree with Caption World, I think you made a good job of this. May be tone down a bit on the film burn FX.

    Nice job all round. A bit of a shame you had two good endings!
    I think it would have been great with just the one (not two) skateboard shots.
    But then again the silhouette shots against the sunset just had to be used.

    Liked the pace/music too. Didnt like the beginning with the guy getting spanked.... Why was that there? I can imagine many people clicking out in the first 5 seconds (too much to see, any weird detail and bye bye...) Split-screens were very good. Liked the product: It shows you had a great time there.

    Hey guys, thanks a lot for the feedback

    I used the film burn for the first time and clearly I was very excited about it - looking back I agree there should be less of it. Thank you also for the comments on the beginning and the end of the video

    Ha Ha, I did exactly the same when I first used it.
