well, I have some bad and good news...

Let's start with the bad: the list is up to 101 tricks again...I checked all files, rated them, marked different versions. But my personal requirement got higher and this is a once in a life time project, so I cannot let some clips slip thru, since I will always try to do my best with my work.

The good news are, that the majority of the files are in Germany soon, so the cutter can work on it, so it won't delay us re-filming the tricks. Another good news is, that the majority of the tricks can be filmed quickly, since I am very fit and can land them without many tries. And the forecast looks excellent!

Day 43:

Wind: 13-15 knots
Time: 2 hours
Location: Paracuru Kitebeach
Kite: Dyno 18
Lines: 25m
Board: Flyradical 128x38

Wind: 15-18 knots
Time: 2 hours
Location: Barra do Cauipe
Kite: Dyno 18
Lines: 25m

We started the day in Paracuru hoping for stronger wind. But the wind was lighter than hoped for. We did a not that great 2 hr session with few tricks.
Then we went to Cauipe for an afternoon session and found excellent conditions, so we could film 22 clips. Forecast looks even better tomorrow, hoping for a big movement in the to do list ;-)

Time: 4 hours
Location: Barra do Cauipe
Kite: Dyno 18
Lines: 25m
Board: Flyradical 128x38

We didn't travel further north, since the forecast was strong, and I was already very powered with my 18...and the north always has a bit more wind. Long session today and we did several slide tricks. New tricks landed: Barefoot Slide Front 360, Barefoot Slide Front 360 Transition, Jesus Walk Front 360, Jesus Walk Front 360 Transition ! We filmed now in total 642 tricks! Looks like we will hit the 650. Maybe tomorrow will be the final day already!

big shock! read here the story Fabian wrote on his wall:

"In the morning the insert of the connection from the camera to the monopod bunked. So my camera was falling and then overturning on the street while we were riding 40 km/h with the buggy. After 20 meters of rolling over the street the pic above came out. Yes i filmed a wheel of the buggy. After that i thought that the camera is totally broken. A few hours later i found out it was just about two electricity connections that i was able to fix
with my swiss knife. God bless my swiss knife! Fixing it took about half an hour. The camera looks like shit but is working again."

We were really lucky this time! We did a bit of interview today, since wind was lighter...hoping for better wind tomorrow to film the rest of the last tricks!
