you might wonder why there are no updates...and we wonder what is wrong with the weather!
No filming since 10 days! And might even get more!
Since 10 days either no wind, too strong wind or no sunshine, just clouds and rain.
In these conditions we do not film to make sure to have best footage.

And I am sure, we need to continue filming somewhere else to get the last maybe 150 tricks...

Looks like May in Egypt...guaranteed sun, that is for sure!!!

Wow, this is really frustrating! 4 weeks and we filmed 1 (!) trick! Even interviews could not be done due to many background noises. Looks like a conspiracy that the AIRSTYLE DVD should not get finished...but I will not give up, and no matter when and how much it will cost, it will be finished one day! Plan C will happen: Egypt in May!

Here the proof: clouds and no wind!

Egypt 2012 - Plan C !

We are back to filming...now in Egypt for 5 weeks !

Wish us luck to finish the DVD, we need it! But an average of 5 tricks per day will bring us to the final goal!
