Interacting with people at very close quarters requires absolute unwaivering control of your kite ... but it is SO worth the effort in getting to that point when you get the response from them.
I mainly do this on 30' and 50' lines, but I've done it out at 80' and 120' as well ... but the longer the lines the more you're removed from the interaction ... I like it when it's the victim volunteer, the kite AND me in the interaction.
That sounds like a lot of fun dude.
I hope to get to that level of skill one day too.
At the moment I am really trying to get as much air time as I can.
I have cut a set of 90# short Quad lines, about 32' at the moment.
I need to get some sleeving stuff to finish them though.
Utterly different animals, no comparing or replacing possible.
Supersonic is FAST, super high acceleration on a much higher scale than the B2 or Rev II, which are simply quicker by size but still exhibit "traditional" Rev precision... The Supersonic is a wily creature, very difficult to fly precisely, but a unique ride all it's own.
Talk about HUMID! Singapore was crazy, like all of my skin turned into a faucet... It was all I could do finish that performance, thighs and hamstrings were SINGING for relief halfway through.
I absolutely LOVE it, yes please, may I have another? <grin>
Ian and Rob, you guys coming to the Redcliffe Kite Festival in May, near Brisbane?
A full iQuad six will in attendance, would love to see you there.
Way to Go the extra mile there John.
You do great performances.
Would love to dude, but the finances do not permit Travel to Brisbane.
(4,400km or 2800mi - 2 day drive - or an expensive plane trip)
Would be great to see you guys in person one day.
Also John, Thanks for the B Series.
Thanks for the Comments John, It means a lot.
Catching up with Rob has been a Huge help.
That first day out he gave me so much help. Tips, pointers, etc.
Also he gave me the confidence to Try Flying Quad Again.
