Francisco Pardo "El Pela" : heir apparent to His Majesty Toby.
Or is he plotting to de-throne him?
Let's see them in a one-to-one duel.

As one can see from my avatar, I am old and wise. I am therefore entitled to a few words of wisdom: Wooooooow!! fantastic moves and great photos! Well done to all, physical ability, training and creativity are more than obvious!!
PSs
* I enjoy the gentle (or not) irony exchanged between new and old schoolers, keep it happening!
* I also find a bit weird (weird but not bad or gay etc) the combination of ballet-like posture and masculin bodies in kitesurfing gear in the still images but in the videos there appears to be no controversy! Obviously the live action (speed, height, power!) testifies the physicality of the tricks which does goes hand in hand with the riders' physique and gear.
* I wish I could do some of this, it is one of my next goals... It worries me to use this stopper ball or a micro-loop :oops: but it did use to worry me to loop the kite as well and now I loop it non-stop! :wink:

Very nice thread, all in all, as far as I am concerned!

sorry, had to stop the topic from being hijacked into a worthless discussion.
So if you like old school, add pictures and your comments or questions.
If someone wants to rant about it, open a new topic, but not in here.

Enjoy the show!
