Rocannon created this amazing drone video recording a kitesurfing trip to the Black Sea in Russia's Crimean Peninsula.  The video does a beautiful job of intermixing shots of the spectacular natural scenery of the Crimean coastline with some epic footage of multiple (and clearly very adept) kitesurfers skimming the water of this vast inland sea.  It looks like the trip of a lifetime, and the video was picked as a Finalist for the Drone Video of the Week contest in June, 2019.
