Mostly shots off my iPhone, with a little bit of footage from a GoPro suspended way too far up the line.

Real good times. Amazing food and friends. I always look forward to gathering in Galveston. You guys are the best. :thumbup:

Great video Chris- wow that iPhone takes some nice images. The video really gave a great sense of the atmosphere there- and I love the choice of background music!

BTW- I noticed that Matrix 15 in your profile pic- what's been your experience with that kite? I've been very intruigued by it.

Man who is talking P.L. into coming next year. Also who were the motogliders. I saw one had a tandem were they maybe giving rides or did they show up at one point and are unaffiliated with the bash. If there is a chance to watch and maybe try motogliding talking the wife into going next year may not be a problem.

More of a matter of funding. Peter enjoyed Galveston. But Jeff Howard paid for his airfare.

Blake and Jeff did most of the powered parachutes, or whatever they refer to them as. They gave lots of rides for most of the event.

Thanks Mike. The iPhone rocks. I'm a bit biased (I work at HQ USA) but the Matrixx 15m works real good in light winds. Faster than a Flysurfer, so I believe it flies better. Quick to self-inflate. Easy to launch & land. Seen the video? http://youtu.be/qucThPhfWlc
