It will either have a rating or it will be shown in the order from easy to hard for each section.

I cannot explain all tricks, just the main info in generell.
But you are always welcome to ask on this forum for tips on how to do it!

I have so much power in my kites from 18 knots on, so I am not missing out on anything.
But I do have way more control over my kite.

And I have done it before...no need to do it anymore.
I truly enjoy what I do now!

Toby,

Why do you feel that you need 600 tricks??? Are you trying to document every possible trick you can think of?

I am sad if I pre-ordered a video that just shows one trick after another. If you want to make Airstyle a legitimate segment of kiting and not just the style of that one kiter named Toby, you will share some instruction and advice on progression. Oh, and lose the slow motion, deep voice announcing each segment of tricks.

I understand why you don't bother to kite in higher winds. A 18m Dyno in 23 knots is a handful for any kiter, much respect.

Thx for the feedback.

The DVD is about inspiration what is possible and what I came up with.

It is not a movie about someone going kiting like Hidden Lines, it is not about a how to DVD like Progression.

I will explain the most important and then show all the tricks.
Then you can learn from what I explained and find tricks you like to repeat them.
Once you landed the first, you will then be inspired to try the others and this way push your level.

I could do 20 how ro videos with get speed, turn the kite, lift off, take the board off, spin it, put it back on, land...and make lots of money with that!

But that's not why I am doing it. I do it my way. If someone does not like it, don't buy it.
Simple as that.

And I am always here to answer questions if someone needs to know a detail!
