wind inversion during ride

Postby Regis-de-giens » Thu Oct 15, 2020 8:17 pm

Here is a "fun" video this summer of two wind inversions in a short time (less than 30 minutes);
- Onshore : kite in the water due to wind drop to 0
- then kite crossing my swimm at less than 2 meters from me (not catch by video, sorry) ...
- relaunch after 20 minutes , offshore
-ride offshore , then new wind inversion; kite kept in the air with dozens of loops
-ride onshore
