Those jumps are huge. :eekdrull:

I'm assuming you are on a Blade??

Ever get the kite caught in one of those trees? :embarrased:

Doesn't look like a whole lot of margin for error.

Whenever I see nice big jumps like this, I always wonder what it's like to jump in wind that doesn't change direction or gust like crazy. And then I wonder if I'm just making excuses for my lack of skills.

Regardless, nice jumps. What kite?

Nice! Couple of things I noticed- you never redirect the kite in flight and when you land I can see the lines just go limp and I can't understand how it does not power up and you turn into Superman?
Your other video this slack line deal is shown more but it never seems to even be a concern vs when I land I am totally focused on getting the kite under control.
You are either very lucky or are very good and have a secret method?

I would be worn out after the first minute. I don't know how this guy holds on for that long, that powered up, that high off the ground....

Then again maybe that is motivation not to run out of steam and let go!!
