Re: Soloshot3 a New way to film kiting

It's a great product no matter what the flaws, well worth the money. I wasn't convinced until I saw all the example videos you guys have been using it looks fantastic.

Re: Soloshot3 a New way to film kiting

Toby I don't know what solo told you but it's impossible to do image stabilization with a zoom lens without having a bunch of video artifacts. They would have to lock the lens at a focal point and then stabilize it there, and I just don't see them getting rid of the zoom, going back to solo2 style. ...

Re: New High Jump French Record - 24m

I don't care about exact measurements I just want a video that really gives justice to how high these jumps are, I don't care if it's 20 meters or 30 meters, it's ridiculous. Drone is a good idea. Plant the drone at about 15 meters, so it's just below the kite, then have the kiter jump up past the d...

Re: New High Jump French Record - 24m

24m is crazy high, but you can see the video doesn't look that much bigger than a regular jump. It's really difficult to properly film these huge jumps so they give you a feeling for just how huge they are. The problem is that the kiter is out there in space and your eye doesn't have anything else n...

Re: Thoughts on the Jamie board

they say you "can't ride boots" on a lot of boards but the only way to know for sure is try it and see if the board breaks. They don't bother testing them in boots at the factory only in straps so when they say "don't ride with boots" it's just a guess from them. Sometimes the board will be strong e...

Re: Mittens vs. 3 Finger Gloves vs. 5 Finger Gloves

Nice. Completely agree with you, JeromeL that glove choice is tougher and matters more than your feet. Can’t really use 6mm on your hands anyways. I use ION’s 3/2 claw gloves and don’t feel fatigue either (presumably the pre-curve does a lot here?) but could do with more protection from the wind. M...

Re: Mittens vs. 3 Finger Gloves vs. 5 Finger Gloves

The dakine cold water mitt are very nice because the palm is not thick material it's thin, which means you don't wear out your forearms by gripping the bar. when you wear 5mm gloves, it oftens means a shorter session because the extra thick material causes your grip to fail long before you want to f...

I don't understand the reluctance to use the safety on a kite.
the QR is one of the best ways to land the kite. The reason people don't like it is . . . the lines sometimes get tangled? It is weird why people hate pulling their QR.
