Hi everybody,

I just came back from Alcochete near Lisbon were i was with Thierry Helaine from Team LUNG TA for a clinic session day and the first indoor competion ever in Portugal, wich took place on sunday. Thierry and me have been asked to share our training tricks- It is the third time LungTa came in Portugal for that (with Marion last limes). Those sessions and the work of people like Carlos Soares who organises the alcochete festival have permited to developpe this sport which didn't exist 10 years ago. Thank you also for the Alcochete city concil for its support -

We worked this weekend with the team Expokite and the team Guincho Kite Club (some people are also in the great team QUAD PT) and also some younger people starting flying stunt kites. we had lots of fun and i took lots of videos of the indoor and outdoor sessions -

The guincho club members are flying power kites for a moment but have started flying revs for only one and half year and love it - you can see what great progress they have accomplished yet.

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

Yes i've told them to come - but it's quite far for them - so quite expensive -
but i think they will try to come next year
They have to plan it because they are 8 people !

They are going to the different festival in Portugal and Spain for now - but are working hard to get invitations everywhere -
they are really nice and hard working people.

i hope you can meet them soon

are you going to Berck?
