Got a short offshore session on the Escape Kites on the Weekend.
It was short, but great for some Oldschool Judo Air practice.

Enjoy the short edit!

Nice video. Looks like great hang time with that kite. I missed the earlier posts about the Escape and had to search it. I'm surprised there hasn't been more talk about it.

Hi Dude,

I was on the 13. It was about 13 knots base wind gusting to 18-20 Knots. Typical Offshore frontal stuff here. Not really that much.

Ta thanks for that. And yeh some more video footage if you get a chance. Been passing it around to mates who keep asking me about correct load, release and body positioning for board offs. I said here you go look at this. So more please... :D

so didn't you use to fly foils? Flysurfers? Or am I going nuts?

Yeah it's a pity a lot of people are missing out on some great kite designing from Peter Lynn, really try and test them if you can.

I suppose, they are decent kites for sure....don't underestimate the rider under that escape. Now that I know it's the same Gunnar I've got some old footage of him on foils from ages ago, he's a damn good rider. More footage please.... :D


remember this one... :D (I like that variation on a tic tac, shown again on the one above



ps Gunnar by the way, what axis board are you on?
