Hehehe! I wonder if that was Dave Shenkman the owner of the Kite Connection on the pier. :clap;

Gang, did you notice the ripped away leading edge sleeve, somebody has some mileage on the wing! Agreed on the location too, a most excellent spot to entertain spectators and perfect winds every time I've ever been there.

Except for the fact that I dont have a 1.5 in that color sail or that I wasn't in HB that weekend, safe to say the ripped LE could be any one of my kites!!!!!!!!!!!!!Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Very nice flying indeed! ;-)

What would you guess the wind speed is in the video?

Around 15 mph perhaps?...

The kite shure moves fast, but nevertheless the hover seems perfect!

Lynn and I fly there a lot, and the only Rev flier we see there on a regular basis is Alex Herzog. That's not Alex, and I don't think it is Dillon, who works for Dave, as he is just learning to fly a Rev.

I think it has to be Dave.

Strange thing is that the wind is coming from the south. Usually comes from the west or northwest.

Perhaps you should give some thought to Kite Party. During Kite Party, we restrict our space to inside the roped off field, but for a couple of days before and a day after, the pier is fair game.

Not that any of us would mess with folks standing on the pier. Right JB?

You can ask Mike Kory. No one would mess with folks on the pier.

I had conversations with the video producer who let the cat out of the bag... He said it was "the guy who ownes the kite shop!" I believe Shenkman should verify... just to make it official!

Come-on Dave... We know you're out there watching this stream! Posted Image

Amazing video... and even better skills... I'm envious and if you don't admit it soon... I'll take the credit! ...(just for the laughs folks... just for the laughs!)
