Steve - while Ray is clearly a fantastic kite flyer lets be honest - any tears in that rendition were probably more to do with the pain of Bette Middler being broacast at outdoor field volume...

Seriously impressive flying though.

I've loved that video since I first saw it several years ago. It is realy breathtaking.

Is it available in higer resolution? I think I used to have a better copy, but I've lost it now.

Asbolutely stunning!!!

Not a great deal I can say that hasn't already been said.

Many people struggle to even pat their head whilst rubbing their stomach, so how many people are there in the world who can focus so completely on three different kites like that? Can't be many.

I would so love to witness his show in person.

Yeah you are right, I should have noticed they were cupping their hands over their ears at the same time! :o

The thing that blew me away was that Ray was somehow flying to the music and he is very deaf.
Also how quickly he can move when he is flying. At other times he moves like his joints need oiling!!!

Cya and
