TV advertising using MTB down hill with kite...

Postby kitesurfbali » Sun Jan 25, 2009 7:24 pm

Hello friends,
tonight I was watching a Soccer game on a local Indonesian channel and at half time they did this advertising of guys doing land boarding down hill with kite.
Is pretty spectacular even if short!!
They use Ozone foil, it looks very cool and those guys are crazy!!! I wonder who they are???
I found it in You Tube:



Enjoy... Bye Jankie

Pretty sure those are Parasails not regular kites notice the controlled flight. I have seen an even crazier vid of guys skiing down a side of a steep mountain, makes those guys look like sissies lol. Either way my fear of dying would kick in :thumb: Polo..


Edit, Here you go .... >

Hey safe cracker. at the start of the clip butch and the boys were using ozone foil kites.then the production team cut in some paragliders for the cliff drop. The term parasail refers to a parachute being pulled by a boat. think you ment paraglider. The stuff of the guys speed gliding the Eiger is sick as though. :D

Football game, damn it!!! you r on an international forum :p


in the video:

speedriding: small paraglider used (10/12m²) eigther in freeride or in some ski resorts that allowed it, u can reach speed of 70/80 km/h, they have very tight turns. the sport is growing fast.

OK Football.... But as is an International forum the American will get it wrong...
Any how my Team AC Milan from Italy won!!! Yeaahhhhh.

I went to dig in as I was curious about this video and find out that actually has nothing to do with Indonesia... They just buy it from an International company...
They were team riders from Ozone and the TV add was showed as Red Bull in some other places..
See here more news and another longer version of the video..

Ya ya I did know the difference but when checked in the dictionary which I always do before I post there really isn't a term for paraglider and the word parasail fit the bill until you used it in parasailing which would make you correct. Either way they didn't jump off the cliff with standard kitesurfing kites which I would like to make known so you don't get some newb jumping off Mt. McKinley (Sp) thinking he/she can fly lOl. :thumb:


Polo.
