Awesome talent. Who is riding the BWS Josh Mulcoy board? And check out PR's bar at 1:25...not your stock SS Compstick :-)

Anyone notice at 1:25 he has a different center line setup than the stock SS center line swivel?

I wonder what he's got going on there. The only time the swivel bothers me is when I'm downlooping a lot in the surf. Most times it works great! Other times my center lines look like a braid...

Just a novice error. Got a line hooked on a turret and he's just going inside to unhook it.
Probably no-one else around for miles.

Looks like there is no trim or flag out just a single line from a snap shackle to the front lines.

Agreed, people sometimes set bad examples or use bad practices in videos. But in the big picture no one really takes their lessons from one shot in a single promo video and if they do they're on their way out of kiting quick.

The real reason I'm posting - what a badass! And a good video - the best shot is that little slo mo section of him in the sky from below with his wrist cocked back like a bird of prey - that would make a great screen saver.

Cool video, but notice at 2:24 Rebstock walks back into the castle after leaving the rally flapping on its edge...whats the take home message here...If your a badass you don't need to properly secure your kite after a session? Or this is how one is supposed to park the Rally? :rollgrin:



Seriously? That's the comment you come up with after watching that video. Get a life!
