The beaches you ride at are incredible. And you guys had just about every kite ever manufactured on display there :D I'm sure Windstruck will approve of the Longstar footage.

RedSky - 3-26-2019 at 03:58 PM

One of those buggies is missing a wheel. Nice video. :thumbup:

Yes, our beaches are not too bad;)
Holland is a little bit Peter Lynn dominated, but we also had Ozone, Flysurfer, F-One, Paraavis, Libre and U-Turn kites at the beach. The Born Kite at the end was a Racestar+ 5.0

jeffnyc - 3-27-2019 at 04:41 PM

Hah, yeah, meant Racestar. Smorgasbord of kites :D Speaking of which, you went home hungry this time, or did you just run out of batteries when it came time for the feast?

Juan - 3-27-2019 at 10:59 PM

I had dinner back home;)

As always, great video Juan. Thank you for sharing.

Randy - 5-15-2019 at 04:18 AM

Juan we need you to come to some our events and shoot some videos!

Juan - 5-15-2019 at 04:45 AM

Thank you!:thumbup::D
Your events are a little bit too far away from me, I guess...:(
Wildwood would be nice! I like the rollercoaster in the background!

:thumbup: Thanks! Reminds me of when I used to buggy. Although I cannot forgive you for the last few seconds of Les Hemmes . Make sure nothing like this ever happens again. :frog:

Juan - 6-18-2019 at 12:38 AM

Because of the Holland-song in France or because of no meal at the end?:cool:

I don't know the song but it was clearly karaoke. I'm pulling your leg of course. Enjoyed both videos. :thumbup:;)

karaoke

Juan - 6-18-2019 at 05:43 AM

No karaoke. Its a funny german song about Holland.

Some drunken dudes sang louder than the wireless speakers...

Wow - too bad about the crash. I normally am the only kite buggy where I ride (and usually the only person as well), so I do get nervous when I go to Jekyll about running into someone (either another buggy, or just a person on the beach.)

Awesome video add usual Juan. I love the time lapse shots, so many riders and kites. Thank you for producing these and sharing them with us.

Nice....!!!!

skimtwashington - 12-7-2019 at 08:08 PM

At 1:25 I can see the kite's design with the highest aspect ratio I've seen on a kite...:o

That is a looong narrow width kite.

I wonder at what point( aspect ratio) you would start to get diminished returns on power/flight..?

Randy - 12-7-2019 at 08:44 PM

Another beautiful video Juan!

I think, the Peter Lynn AeroV2 has an average aspect ratio for a racekite. I dont care about data, but I am sure there are some other kites with a higher AR, like Flysurfer Race and VMG or PKD Inferno.

Juan - 12-7-2019 at 11:33 PM

Thank you, jantje and Randy!:cool:

Only a prototype, but the video shows what aspect ratio is possible:

jantie - 12-8-2019 at 11:33 AM

It can be the world best kite.
but like in Formula 1 it's the driver that makes the the car fast.
