jepp! this is a very nice video! but me, as a very old sailor, i am judging the wind a little stronger than announced in the videos context !
but, no doubt at all! great flying in low winds!
with some money, my strongest whip, with the love of my "labrador-lady"
i could get my "adopted son matze" to follow me in the snow. there he had to fly the zen in even less winds, as shown in "zen-play-video", .....but more snow, than john had "on the docks".
merely to say, that this "big-little-man" is able to fly a wooden toilets-door in indoor conditions,
as soon it is attached to four lines. ;-)
here a poor-quality-video. shot with my canon powershot.
we didn´t take care of the video-quality, but wanted to show, what is possible, when the talented pilot gets "a good tool" in his hands. ( 8,5 minutes ~ 14,5 MB)
have a look at: the german answer to "mr. JB" ;-)
having watched this video and still arent tired of watching "white THINGS"?
ok, than have a look at an web-album i took whilst matze was flying: zenGHOST in the snow
what i want to say is: " IT IS NOT ONLY THE WIND; THAT MAKES A KITE MOVE!
it needs a skilled pilot!
and a very lot of talent should be available, too!
btw: john, whats about a trip to germany? i can get you in touch with that skilled AND talented kite-flyer. sorry, that you AND TK have to come to germany, but matze and me...............................................................
.......we ran out of money (spended all for kites) ;-)
have fun folks and remember:
there is a big difference between "kneeling down and " bending over"! ;-)
(you know, who said this first? send me the name of the author, an i´ll invite to a nice "kiter´s dinner", you just have to com to germany with johnB" ;-)
again, please excuse my bad english!
