Crazy kite trick: parasailing connected to other kiter

Postby arnoldjager » Sun Jul 22, 2018 5:50 pm

Hi guys,

I once saw a YouTube video with a crazy kite trick... two or three kiters hooked up and the most upwind kiter would allow the other(s) to take off and fly/parasail. Does anyone know that video, or another example? It was part of a longer promo vid.

Cheers and keep jumping :jump:

Nick Jacobsen is a prince of this kind of fun.
The 2up1down video you mention is with him, Youri Zoon and Kevin Langeree.

Look up Hidden Lines, riding in a pool, crane jump, roof jump for more ideas which are advised not to be repeated.
