In 2022, let’s bring back more powerboat racing content on YouTube

Powerboat racing video content has increasingly been placed behind paywalls in the last two years or so. We have nothing against people trying to make money, absolutely no problem. Our major disagreement with this push towards pay per view is that by having the content behind a paywall that the content will be obscured.

There has been powerboat racing since the early 1900s, long before many of us were born. The sport has seen ups and downs and had what many refer to as its Hay Day. There were certain categories that enjoyed national TV coverage and were seen by millions of viewers.

We are now entering the age of digital live streaming in the year 2022 when you can stream with a device that fits in your palm. No video trucks are needed, no employees are needed, and you no longer need a tripod or even a large camera to stream.

The first embedded video shown below was shot last season by Frode Sundsdal using his iPhone with an attached Rode Go mic system. As you can see both the quality and audio are more than adequate for social media. We especially like the content by Frode last year showing just how capable a simple iPhone can be. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s not enough. We also love the second clip below shot by the gang over at Throttled: Stock Outboard Racing Podcast

We need more powerboat racing videos on YouTube in 2022, so let’s get it done!
