nice! Do you notice any wear on the kite from it rubbing against the pavement? I always wanted to try something like this..

I watched your first vid like this a while ago. I actually tried this with the flexboard with my 3m Legend in about 27-36mph and it worked great. I didn't have very good control though. Maybe I need more practice.

That kite looks like the tongue of a giant dog :lol:
Nice! Got me thinking now ...

naw i dont get any wear marks on the kite, i still try not to let it scrap, i usully fly with two hands when flying the 5 meter( i was holding the phone with my left hand).

Yeah with my 3 meter legend fying with one hand, i can control the kite with only a little pressure of my wrist (left or right). the trick is to keep your handles gripped tightly and lined up.

haha clifford the big red dog's tounge, its cheezy's old sprint
i bet i got over 100 skateboard miles on her already.

Nicely done...I still can't get over all that wide open space and no fences...I gotta move out of L.A.!

Skiteboarding! I can't wait to try it on my longboard!

Very cool video. I'll have to show this to the long board kids around here.
Have you got the handles direct to the bridle or very short lines?
