Nice one. The kite surfers often get the dolphins, to get the wales they usually have to go a bit further out than they usually do - but their faces tell it all when they get in :)

Never thought of mounting the camera to the kite for kitesurfing. What a sweet way to get pictures of yourself when nobody else is around to take them. That's a really cool shot to and such an experience to get that close to a whale and live to tell it.

Happy flying to everybody. Now get off the computer and get a kite out! hehe

I had a link to some amazing kite-mounted video of kitesurfing where the video is constantly reorientated so that the picture is always the right way up (if you see what I mean) - so you never got that vomit-inducing feeling.

But I can't find it now... :blue-confused:

That's such a great shot, obviously. I love the way the swells texturize the image.
Here's one of my KAP shots from earlier today... hey, I saw KAP :sq-wink:

Eeeeeek! WHOA! I'm sure glad the guy (and whale) didn't get hurt. Kinda funny that the whale tapped him on the head tho. :?


Here's another story about a kitesurfer and a pod of Orca! Geez! Busy waters this week...

Hi Laura,

Felix, Those are some great photos. In particular I really like those that kind of represent the human body and the windmills, all relying on the lines of the kites below and above them to give them their form.

The lines are an aid but actually the fliers have to hold their hover!

Hi Felix...
Thanks for the links. I enjoyed all of it. The custom Revs are beautiful. ... and the photos, well, just too cool for words. I hope I can get some shots that are as stunning as some of those!
