How about green, short cut grass as far as you can see, slightly sloping off of the sea. A light, onshore breeze clocking in at about 2m/sec (4,5mph) and a summer sun warming it all up to about +25°C.
Yeah, you also need a kite, some lines, a pair of handles and a kite stake and you’re good to go!
…and like always I brought my mobile phone and a tripod to shoot some footage.
Conditions were great and I was in the mood for experimenting. The A-Quad is a real floater and I played around with a bunch of slooow axels. They can be super flat, floaty and slow if you set the kite up correctly. …and I did … quite some times.
…and finally I was ready for catches and throws. The A-Quad is a great glider, so if you pull too hard on the front lines, it will fly over you. But after adjusting the pull a little I had the kite falling out of the air and right into my hands.
I even went for an axel directly on the throw … and I mailed it! 😎🤙👍 Actually it wasn’t too difficult. The kite is already in a good position for popping the axel. You just have to wait until the exact moment … and find out whether should pop it with your right or your left hand.
…and it looks like this!
