Very nice flying. A question: at about 1:15 in the video (right after a JL) . . . is that a Torpille . . . or just a smoothly flowing Comete?

That QPro SUL (dualline) is one of my favorites, and that Talon UL is one of my new favorites. SWEET !

Don't forget Stoked in the Park videos. They are top of the list for me. Just want to get some better quality copies.

Amsterdam Tricks Clinic.. Masque/XMasque/Impact/Mayet.. Maybe the most important (from a tricks perspective) kite video ever done.

ABW Stoked October 2004.. Andy wailing on the Gem, plus a lot of fun media high jinks and great music work by him as well.

Rekindle.. Paul O. Gausel on the Nirvana.
RekindleII.. Very high quality vids at the beach, great flying.

Double 00 Indoor 2004.. Gregory Reynes.. unfrickin'believable.

New Mix.. Nirvana/Debray
So Freestyle.. KrystalFX/Debray

Sam Krystal.. Krystal/Sam Roger

Goth.. Machine/RonG

Just a few.. there are Sooo many..

Yup, for on-line videos, the Mayet Amsterdam Tricks Clinic is still a good view after all this time.

Another online fave is the KrystalWW pairs in the snow with Laura and Samuel. Nice flying, nice scenery & nice camera work. It's my go-to civilian video.

For DVD, the Trick or Treat from the Benson Nuts is hard to beat.

For Oldskool VHS, it's a tie between Flexi's Tricky Flickery and Prism's Trick Show. The music is so aweful in Trick Show I tend to think of it as a silent film.

Top of the heap in any format is the riverbed flying by Martin in the Tricktail Feeling vid. Great stuff.

Too many great videos to mention but speaking of the Krystal WW there is this one which is very nice. Zen-ness and relaxing. Literally tricking in "bullet time" slow mode.

Those must be the slowwwest slot machines every caught on camera Smiley

Yeah well, if we are bringing up the old "buy it in a store and plunk it in the VCR" stuff then definitely Tricky Flickery is my fav.

Flight School III has to be mentioned too in that case.

Trick Or Treat.. I watch it quite a lot, especially Tim's segments. It's a must have.

There are some nice French discs, none of which play very well on any of the machines around here.. someday.

My favourite is still the Gemini / Deepspace Mix video that you can see on the Benson site or download from the Bensontwins page.  I've spent a bit of time with the Gemini and appreciate the difficulty of a lot of those moves on the Gem, particularly the comete.
