We are a sea tribe who paddle long boats in rough water conditions in the northwest of Spain.

Our playground is the chaotic frontier among the mighty Atlantic ocean and the ancient Galician coast, where it was said, in the ancient times, that the world ended and the maps showed terrifying creatures……

Rockgardens, ocean surfing, currents, cliffs, big swells, uninhabited islands, gale force storms………… Once you have been paddling between dragons, is not possible to paddle like a human again .

It is a one way trip.

If you can edit a HD video but your PC works slow and badly.... 

                                                If you can not see the effects and transitions.... 

                                                                                    Are you thinking about a new PC???......











First, the GOPRO HERO3 process three diferent files when recording:


MP4: the high quality video.

LRV: a low resolution video.....


THM: a thumbnail image.

STEP 1 - Create a new folder, in this case GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/, and copy there all the files from our GOPRO SD. (Delete the THM files if you wish).

 STEP 2 - Create the folder GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/MP4/ and Move the MP4 files to GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/MP4/

 STEP 3 - Rename the LRV files to MP4 extension in order to be able to work with them in VideoStudio.

 STEP 4 - If you are going to work with photos or audio in the video, I recomend to copy all the files into GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/

 STEP 5 - It’s time to work with the low quality videos and build your proyect in the way you usually do with the high quality ones.

 STEP 6 - Once the proyect is finished, save it in GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/ and close the VideoStudio.
Now comes the Nuts and Bolts......

STEP 7 - Create the folder GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/LRV/ and move the low resolution videos into it (You don’t need them anymore, but don’t delete them, just in case...).

 STEP 8 - Move the high quality videos from GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/MP4/ to GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/ and open VideoStudio again.

 STEP 9 - Open the previous proyect....a error window appears.....DON’T  PANIC!!!!  Video studio will ask to revinculate the first lost clip (in this example GOPR0259). Select the high resolution video GOPR0259 that is in GOPRO3VIDEOS/THOD/.

VideoStudio will revinculate the other clips automatically because all of them match in name and duration with the low quality ones. LOL!


 STEP 10 – Now you can Build the definitive High Resolution video and enjoy it. May be that it takes a lot of time processing, but at last you will be able to make the movie in an easy an clear way.

* Lets confront the worst case escenario: your PC can made the low res proyect but can’t built the high res video???. 
All the files are together in one folder???
Just move it into a external drive, call a friend with a good PC, buy some beers and go to his/her home. 

Tested with Corel VideoStudio X4            
(don’t know if it Works in other video editors)

From last weeks to now, as some of you already noticed, THOD have had a low profile... let me explain our current situation.

Thousands of years ago,one of the most 
famous seaman of antiquity lost the Gods 
favour, so they confused Ulysses for 10 years 
until he was able to arrive home, going through 
an insane variety of  Misfortunes and Pains


 Now, the Gods have returned to their gameboard, taking this time the members of THOD as Pawns

In this new game, for one reason or another, the four Dragons could not have been in the water together and the last time that we all were surfing, an old shoulder injury put the RED DRAGON as spectator in the beach.

From this day, the most diverse plans confused our ways, joining 2 or 3 dragons, but not all 4. In addition, last time that 3 of us was going to paddle , Poseidon prepare for us a mirror of waetr, leaving us as idiots sat in the shore.


Fate... as soon as you offend the gods, you must amend your affront or look for the way of gaining again their favour.

We have been thinking what was our error without finding the motive of their displeasure, so it is time to buy again their Bless.

This video is our offering to the Gods to pacify them, a video from one of our last surfing sessions that was edit to try a couple of effects, not to share.....but finally....here it is.

 So we hope that you like it and that Poseidon allow us to return to play in the ocean the 4 dragons together in a few days.
