The reason that video had such an effect was that I connected with it more than the kite surfing vids I'd seen (in fact, right up until I was up and riding, I was only interested in kite surfing as a vaguely fun way to get in the water between good surf). It showed great appreciation of a place I love as well as for waves and wave riding. I felt very authentic, made by someone wanting to show the beauty of porthcawl/the sea and not by someone purely trying to drive traffic to their business via social media, just because that's what everyone else does these days. Watching it again today, it still evokes a strong response - I want to be out in that water right now!
No idea how much of this translates to other people, but you certainly hit the nail on the head with that video as far as I was concerned and I hope that's in some way helpful feedback.
SOME TRIP ADVISOR FEEDBACK :
I had lessons with Marc and Sarah whilst at university and bought my first set of kitesurf kit off them. They are great instructors and are the source of my passion for kitesurfing. Over the past 7 years I have been on a number of group holidays including Portugal and Brazil, which were fantastic trips. In their shop they sell great kit and offer opportunities to demo kit to ensure you buy the right things. They are very honest and give great advice. I'm very happy with the last set of kit I bought off them. They also do great things for the kiting community in South Wales. For all things kiting, speak to Blast!
