Exchanging kites between 2 foilers while riding!

Postby austroKiter » Sat Dec 30, 2017 8:30 am

After watching this video

phpBB [video]


I'm wondering who will be the first foilers to pull off the following trick:
- Both are riding closeby, then completely unhook and let go of their kite
- Then continue foiling to the floating kite of the other rider
- Hook in and keep on riding with the other kite

Doable?

Who will be the first to pull it off?
My bet is on the BRM Cloud guys.

Doable, absolutely.
I would just " hand over" the kites, throwing it like on the video has a low success ratio IMO.
