I agree. LOL. "I LIKE DOING THIS" and "GO FASTER." Two of the best phrases I've heard on a kite video. Sounds like he is ready for his own buggy and kite. Also what kite were you using van. Looked fast but all i could see was red and white.

pyro,

that was my Cooper 4.5m . I was way under power especially with the extra weight of the seat and henry on my rear axle. Wind was only about 6-8mph in the morning so was nice and safe for henry to tag along. The wind finally picked up to about 17 - 20 later in the afternoon so it was a much better run. I will post that video up tonight. I plan to do a 3D shoot to see how it works.

chad .. that's why I got that second gopro from you. Always wanted to do the picture in picture view.

the beach has a few poles here and there that you have to go through but on the long runs , the pole groupings are about 1 mile apart. They are only densed near the DBBB campground. The sand in that area is kinda wet right now. You will see what I mean in my second video.

Here's the second video. Taken a few hours later when the wind picked up a little. Finally got into the high teens , lower 20's by late afternoon.

Had to dodge the local wildlife too .. on a leash ... :smilegrin:
