Dont say that! Ive been waxing lyrical about how you guys just flew unvented 1's and 1.5's all weekend when the rest of us where fully vented, proving it was more about the flyer then the kite ... mind you walking around with your knuckles dragging on the ground is never a good look :lol:

Ha! The standard kites never felt too overpowered, but when you see the video you realise how much "bouncing around" was going on.

Thanks for sharing, Jade. It's hard to believe it was only a few days ago. Having to go to work since makes it look so far removed.

LOVE the Decs/FS combo stuff, well done!

Looks like the FS pilot in majority bottom right needs to work on their reverse a bit though, or add some brake. ;)

Don't know about reverse practice but I will be changing the batteries in his hearing aid! :devil:

That really was some bumpy wind infront of that Memorial. For those who have not been to Southsea take at look here to see what was behind us.

great vids, all of them.
particularly like the vertical kisses that split apart individually, slide down and then reconnect at the bottom.
also the opposing pinwheels.
very nice!
