Hey guys,

Just cruising YouTube, and came across this video of me in Argentina...

http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=iEzcWlpmZOY

Wind was probably a variable 3-6 mph, guessing 3 wrap in a masterpiece (non-vented) sail.

Reason I'm posting it is to provoke discussion about the "load and go" technique used...

Also, when we add a little slack into the line to complete a stop.

One of the cornerstones to iQuad technique is leaning away from the kite, or giving a pull towards us as we prepare for or initiate any movement with the kite... Check it out, talk amongst yourselves, share what you find (or have found)!

hey john i did see a part where it looked like you were doing a falling leaf.. i was wondering if im right.. its where you take the kite over head and you snap the handles and then do it again when the kite drops.. if so i want to try this as i want to get this trick down.. ive been trying it for a while but no sucess yet.. i think i did it once but got wraped up..

Split screens would be an excellent addition to those videos.

lol - omg! (thanks) ;)

I know it's a bit of a drone to watch a body flying for that long, but I thought ya'll might find some additional perspective with that angle.

FYI, they're not my videos... Just something I found on the web.

Hmmm, I flew for just over a half hour this evening and the last song I listened to was the theme for Peter Gunn by the Blues Brothers. Maybe there is hope for me after all!

I was doing the same thing as Ant, trying to figure out what the kite was doing by watching the hands. Kind of cool.

I'll have to work on the step forward and back. I was trying it some today (works great for a fast dive stop in relatively low winds).

Who took the videos? Reminds me of some of Bob Guccione's work (the blurred lenses that is). :kid_devlish:

So there you go. Don't need split screen.

Just play them alongside each other.

There is a idea John. Don't edit the training video into windows.

Send out 3 or 4 "views"

Get loads of PC's and place the screens together fot a real time panoramic view.

I have 3 PC's here so would be willing to be a trial viewer for you?

See there you go again Baloo trying to muscle in ahead of us newbies... I have 10 PC's and 5 Macs ... I win.. so obviously I will be the beta tester!

Just got to figure out why my electric bill is so high???

For what its worth John, Mrs Jones thought that was the best kite video I had 'subjected' her to and wondered if you had anymore like that? .. perhaps the swim wear version?? EEEK!

This looks promising - You guys will let me know when I need to buy a hat won't you ;)

Interesting videos. I certainly don't power up the kite like that before moves. Will give it a try next time I am out.

You need a new hat Jeremy, perhaps one like this would suit you for those sort of moves :P

If I were to start moving like that they would just up my medication.
