You've seen the videos, on shows like "Funniest Home Videos." That was a show in Australia some time ago now. But I'm sure there are, or have been, similar shows in other countries!
Don't you just love the sound effects they use. Screaming Junkers dive-bomber sound, building to a crescendo ... before the inevitable impact and canned laughter.
Now, a collision might not be the only reason you remember a stunt-kite flying session. As the stories below demonstrate, this corner of the kiting world can generate a whole range of experiences.
And you don't need a high-end delta to have a lot of fun. Our PP Mk3 dual-line diamond has done plenty of old-school wide and relaxed figures over the sand!
Are you a keen and experienced sport kite pilot? Think back to all the
things that ever went wrong. Or maybe nothing actually went wrong as
such. Perhaps a passing bird dragged its feet over the lines or
something. It's happened to me, while flying a small single-liner in a
stiff sea breeze! There has to be a story in there somewhere, that you could tell others—although not through this site any more.
