Couldn't believe what I was watching...

Axels...

Flic-flacs...

Slides...

Downwind Glides...

Javelin Tosses...

This young guy is one of the best I've ever seen and I couldn't wait to find out who he is...

Looks like you'll have made John's day ... when he wakes up. Even called him a youngster.

Watch the last ten or twenty seconds for the answer to your question.

Cheers,
Tom

I've watched the whole thing from end to end a couple of times already ;^)

Naah, no need to watch out for the name (which is written in the video description, by the way). Just check out the dance moves :P The footwork is a dead giveaway.

I have a kite pretty much identical to the "mystery :devil: " flier.

His is obviously better trained than mine though. When I get mine out of the bag and put it's lead on it sort of flies around a bit, but only when it wants to. The one in the link is much better trained, looks like you put it's lead on and it wants to show off all over the place. :D

:lol: He might be better now than then.

I'll never look at a certain bush in that park the same way again. :lol: (inside joke with the kid)

I do have a question somewhat off topic.... sorry.

With all the travels of JB, how does he manage to stay so florecent? He never really seems to get any darker. Almost seems to get brighter. :huh: Just a thought.
