Here's a bit of a first video attempt...


It was a stonking wind and the video seems to prove I'm still a bit of a gumby with the rev!
My bicycle has a bit of the flat tyre about them and my clocks have a definite dali-esque influence!!

Thanks to Col for all the raw footage

Great video Mike. ;)

A suggestion, based on how I saw the kite behaving (not you)... In wind like that, try letting out another knot on your handles.

Make your top lines one knot longer... The hover ability will increase, and the kite won't jump around as much.

Short adjustment period, but I think you'll prefer it. ;)

Water flying, 1/4 clockwork, inverted slides... All in all, you're doing FINE mate!

Nice going, sort of place for more than one set of eyeballs.
Brings to mind a certain add on tv here, think it was for Fosters, fella sort of losing his head while bungee junping.

Appreciate the comments guys,
unfortunately we do fly with our backs to the water there alot
fortunately there are usually lots of people around and croc sightings are rare. (I've never seen one there)

John, really appreciate the feedback, I've mucked around a little with line trim but never enough to know what I'm doing with it, many thanks for the tip!

All in all even though I'm still a "gumby", it's such a hoot! One of my fave things to do is to whack on some groovy tunes and go flyin!

Awesome, I loved it when it submerged then resurfaced.
What could possibly go wrong?
