Pretty cool :smile:

Dude, seems to be from an analog camera, right?

Why is the water so smooth and the jumps so high? There must be more wind (don't tell me it's the F-Arc :wink:

Hey Rod, you kick arse man!

Great video, like your attitude on the forum. After following your posts/website over the time you've been kiting you've really progressed.
Pity you don't live on the East Coast of Oz 'round my area, you could give the young guys who think kitings too hard a poke.

Keep it up, have fun, Dave (Dr Surf Australia)

That was my 5th time on the F-arc. And it really has the edge on everything on the water.

Huge jumps Not really. the wind was only a maxium of 18 knots. I cant wait to hit 23-25 knots again. They where huge and the float was twice as long. But I wasnt that good 2 sessions ago so It should be even better this time. Although out of 20 kiters only about 8 where jumping and they came nowhere near me in height or hang.

The flat water is from shallow water I think which means more speed and higher jumps.

Either way I had a great 3 hour session. Too bad you didnt get to see all my THRILLS and SPILLS.

Im still learning and although Ive got the spins and 1 footers happening I havn't been able to go toeside yet or anygood transitions.

Something for next time I think :smile:

And yer Its a very old camera with a cheap capture card. It looks just ok in full quality. The camera has hardly any zoom so I got my mate to walk out in the water. made for some good shots to.

Oh yer its because its an F-arc :smile:

Hey Rod! Sweet vid, dude...

Like the no footer with the "Jesus walk" at the end, but you need to work on staying up on the water and not letting your feet sink! LOL!! Nice...

Nice work Rod,

I will have to take some footage at the mambo so you can see some eastcoast locations and style. Great to see decent australian footage, with some length. I cant stand those 5 second vids.

Later,

Pete.

Oh yeah,

Dr Surf speak for your self:

I think I do alright,

and Im certainly not some rich old bastard, or one with a sweet job setup like yours.

But that will all change next year if I can get a job :smile:

Later,

Pete.
