Learning To Fly, Parts 1 & 2...

Postby Knoted4ever » Mon, Aug 13 2007, 08:41 PM

i made a new dualie sport kite video :mrblue: ; it had to be uploaded in two separate parts due to Google's uploading restrictions. It was filmed at Clifton High School, where i often practice (situps).

The titles are Sport Kite Video... Learning to Fly, Part 1
and Sport Kite Video... Learning to Fly, Part 2

Cool! Now that I've watched your video I should be able to go outside this afternoon and mimic all your moves! :shock:

WOW!


Something tells me that it would take me 5 or 15 years to get that good. Very nice job!

Truly AMAZING Tom!!!!!!!!!!! After watching you fly here, I truly have a new respect for you duellies!! :up:

Your choices of music fit the routine very well, almost as if you had it playing while you were flying. :guns:

Wow! Thanks for all of the uplifting feedback you guys!... much appreciated! :mrblue:
i really haven't been flying that long... a bit over 4 years, with time off for laser eye (Lasik) surgery. You guys can do tricks too... it just requires making a lot of erroneous attempts (which i am still very good at)!

Special thanks go to 8) Mike for graciously uploading the stuff for me! We still have dinosaurian dial-up here where we might as well be in the middle of the Amazon... so i'm unable to upload or download much, especially regarding videos!

Tom you are a fun flyer to watch, and your kites are recognizable in the air just by how they move. Ya got style!-must be all the popcorn you lounge around eating at the festivals. :wink:
