Kite buggy roller coaster!


Found some old footage from last February. The first minute is kinda slow as it's an upwind drag out to the point. When I'm riding the banks; it even sounds like a coaster! Let me know what you think.



Kite was a 2.4m Sting. It was pretty windy that day but I don't remember how windy.




Sting 1.7 - Flow 2, 3, 4, 5 - Reactor 2.2, 2.8, 3.5, 4.4, 5.5 - Yakuza 2.2, 2.7 - JOJO 9

Mood: Missing my power kiting friends

Sweet! Great sound effects. Going 3-d in a buggy is a ton of fun. I've got a sports complex in town I ride at sometimes that has a soccer field next to a baseball diamond. The two are quite a bit different in altitude and when the wind is blowing in the right direction I can cross the soccer field diagonally, shoot down a steep grass hill and fly out onto the outfield of the baseball field. Coming back up is even more fun!

Nice set up for you. Funny, no pedestrians that day. Go figure.

Cool vid. I like how that goose by the water looked surprised as you zoomed by it.

I would ride like that. All I need is the location, and the equipment, and the skill, and the courage, and the experience, other than those few details I'm good to go. :thumbup:



Flying mostly single skins, with some orphans, the American flag, and a PL buggy. US01
