Trick flying in higher winds is demanding, no question about that. Trick flying means your lines going slack all the time, but when the wind is howling it’s very hard to get enough slack in the lines to carry out the various tricks.

This goes back to the year of 2003, quite some time ago. One of the Nirvanas of the first ever commercially available Nirvanas happened to end up at the end of my strings!
I was ready to review the Classic Stunt Kite Opium by French R-sky, but when I hit the field the wind was a tad on the too strong side.
Some times when you want to fly you will find yourself in very light wind conditions. However, with a little bit of knowledge about how to set up your kite and some practice you can keep on flying even if the wind dies down.
Having fun with the Prism Eclipse on the field yesterday. Here’s a new video with outtakes and other stuff from the session.
Back in 2004 there was a lot of talk about the l’Atelier Transfer and it’s reluctancy to fade. I wrote an article on that topic, and some of it is applicable on a general basis too.
I thought you might be interested in how I’m doing the ‘testing’ of the Stunt Kite Classics. Come on and join me behind the scenes, and I’ll let you know.
A couple of years ago I got my hands on this HQ Midi. Never really flown it until recently. Now I wonder why…
More than twenty years old, but the Midi still delivers!
Not only the old school tricks, but quite a few new ones too. A great freestyler!
It’s been a while, but yesterday my fave kite for several years was dancing in the air again!
The Gemini was a real game changer twenty years ago and opened up many new doors in the freestyle department. My fave kite for several years!
Virtual Freestyle is an Internet-based kite flying competition that is free for everyone around the world to enter!
This is not a beginner kite. You will need skills, patience and determination to get the most out of it. But that’s what makes it fun, isn’t it?
That feeling…. You know, when you’re kind of telepathically connected to your kite and it will do anything you tell it to…
The Cosmic TC was a revelation to me and capable of all the tricks in that famous book.
My Plan A was to fly the Gemini and the Elixir back to back, but for several reasons I had to switch to Plan B.
The Nirvana WW (Without Wind) is an agile kite, perfect, for solo or team flying in low or no wind conditions.
It’s been a while, but here the other day I pulled a Nirvana out of the bag again.
The vote is over and the six tricks are selected. Here’s my selection of tricks!
…and the voting is closed! Thank you for voting for the six tricks I will perform in my project Stunt Kite Classics!
