Evan and hugo had proven with sonic4 that a 6m foilkite can be a true alternative to tube kites

I confirm that too ! this size is amazing ! :)

hey, man!
I have huge respect for what you do and your kiting skills!!!
with that out of the way, i think your camera or editing software needs an upgrade :-)
the amount of shaking in that video gave me nausea and headache.....
please dont take it the wrong way :-)

Cool funalex.

I dont see anything wrong in the editing, but assume one or two things:

You have the cam on your helmet, which "rattles" in the wind.
and or you have an older GoPro where stabilisation isnt as evolved as newer ones - they are simply brilliant in this respect.
