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.
