Damn did Debray win? I thought Chris should have won.

One of the best trickout competitions I've seen yet though. No crashes and its just pedal to the metal.

Now I'm sure these are some of the best pilots in the world and I could only hope to be 1/100th as good as they are... that said... I can understand why stunt kite flying isn't that popular, especially for spectators. I rarely see flying from that perspective, and it doesn't look that good. I think I might have appreciated what was going on more from the first person perspective, but from the camera angle in the video... I would've just walked away if I were passing by. It's a real eye opener to someone like me who doesn't get to see other people flying & tricking.

Thanks for posting the video.

I especially liked the tit-for-tat invasion of each others space.

What kite was Richard flying?

Ah yes, could be a scene from any festival, with a bunch of field hogging pensioners quad fliers.

(the Frenchman started it ;))

Looks like a "Toxic" to me ... bogey colored.

Thanks for posting this - I loved it!

What's more, these guys are flying in some serious wind which makes it all the more impressive.  A huge difference between this and 5-6.  :)

A proto small NSE; an NSEFX if you like.

That would be cool if they did the tricks slow enough that people could appreciate the maneuvers.

Right ... but if was *rather* windy that day by the looks of things.

Given my druthers, and knowing the pilot skills and wind conditions....

Perhaps a slow-motion vid would allow many of us to appreciate what was happening too fast for mere mortals (and I am definitely in the list of mere mortals) to comprehend.   ???

Lol ! But the pilots have to do so many tricks as possible for a given time! This is the game.  ;)

I didn't realize that was the game.

Thanks, Mike. It makes more sense, now. I had to watch the first video again to make sure it was the same thing. Then yours again. I know I wouldn't have been able to trick in that wind, I didn't give the wind speed enough credit when I viewed it the first time. Why don't these guys fly vented kites ?   :o

You can't trick a vent like that ... not even those wizards.

Unless of course they were to all swich to Fearless SUL Vents  8)
