Have I fully achieved full on OLD GUY mode when my takeaway from that video was "that roof really needs repair..."
Hahaha. I guess it could explain why the managers of that property allowed them to kite there in the first place. They don't give a fuck!

Pretty amazing how much control he has with his kite. I just hope most people watching have the sense to know how risky that is.

This is a pool I'm just waiting to see someone tag

You'd need 100m lines to get clean wind around those buildings :lol:

I don't know, when i see Lenten stuff like the last vid in Iceland i'm all like "this guy is a legend doing legendary stuff: he's an hero".

When i see someone doing this stuff in such an environment i just come to think that he is a guy with exceptional skill unfortunately coupled with an exceptionally low IQ. I've rarely seen something as Darwin awardable as this stunt.

I would also hand a Darwin award to Lenten for jumping over the pier in Tarifa, just to promote a sugary caffeine drink.. It is all fun and games until it goes wrong, and eventually it will.

I resisted watching "Nick Jacobsen going wild in a hotel pool" for several days, thinking Nick must have gotten really drunk and "Entertainment Tonight" or some similar trashy media outlet had probably caught him in a compromising position. Wish I'd watched it sooner. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
