I thought this took guts at a national competition :shock: Flic flacs are easy now, but even so, more often than not, I get something wrapped :shock:

It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.

Nice flying and boy, that is gutsy. He must have made sure to get rid of his knots on the kite or at least cover them up.
I coudn't tell from the video if he had Magic Sticks on his kite. I think that's supposed to help too, but I've never used them. Several East Coast folks use them.

no guts, no glory...

I have a complete set of the PEKR fittings that allow you to hide your knots and then just larkshead the fittings to the sail. I have to get them on one of my revs this winter...
