Just noticed that from 1:49 to 2:22 you are flying one handed.

That's just sick. :clap;

The "No Fear Man" in action, very nice, I like everything especially the part at the ocean waves, that's not easy to do. Just everything is done with Mastery. Thanks you John for this gifts you give us all.

Those running tip dips (my words) were inspirational to say the least. I will keep trying. Practice practice practice… When the wave got the kite I came unglued. How did one of my videos get mixed up in there? You just did it to show the kite can live thru it I’m sure. I do hope the larger resolution version is downloadable. I love to put them on my laptop and have it running off to the side at work. The one handed work is outrageous as well. I have a set of handles in front of me now I can’t get them to move individually while in one hand. I think I will start another thread and ask for help on that. That way all my pictures won’t have to be a kite sitting on the ground. Totally outrageous video John. Every move is so smooth and precise. You’re the best.

Grab me on a field anytime, always happy to share the tips and tricks I've accumulated over the years. ;)

Information and context really helps the process, while learning without experienced fliers nearby is obviously the hardest.

Through the dogstake, yes?

If so, I think it was about 60-70 feet... This is cut in half of course, when it goes through the stake.

You must become one with the Rev grasshopper then it will do your bidding, relaxing while flying will help more then anything, don't try to do it goof off and it will happen.

After that anything is possible.

Personally what aggrivates me is he gets cool color combo's I was drooling over the kite so much i had to watch it again to see what he did with it lol.

Great Job John, I'm getting close damn fall had to show up already :kid_brooding:
Jim,

Rev's are like a carbon framed out-of-body experience
