Episode 9 of Open Source Trickkites features a design by Werner Hulstaert from Belgium: B'zar 2009. Flown in very turbulent suburbian wind near Berlijnplein in Utrecht, Holland. Thanks to Wim and Wouter Eskens for supplying the kite.

Plans of this version (and newer versions) are available here:

I need to build a new 2009 B'zar... I like the way it flies, but mine has taken a significant beating and the fabric is in terrible shape.  I like your color scheme.

While i'm not such a big fan of the 2009 layout (i love the 2011 panel) i do think the grey/yellow scheme is quite nice indeed. This kite is not mine. Will return it to it's owners next weekend in Zeebrugge, Belgium.

I can borrow a B'Zar 2011 as well, so i'll be doing a video of that in the near future. It's trick repetoire is a bit more modern. I can't get taz's with the 2009, but the 2011 does 'm.

Still the 2009 feels quite solid and could cope with the (very) sh*tty wind okay.

It did seem however like you had to force it into and out of many of the  tricks... But then again your flying is superb so you were able to pull it off nicely 😜

You're right. It was hard to get the tricks. There's a large parkinglot in front of that field, but it's about 6-8 meters lower with a very steep hill. So very turbulent conditions.
