Now, Artem, I can, theoretically at least, figure out how you can go so high, and hang in the air for longer than an old man needs to piss. What I cannot understand is, how you can do all of this without landing on one of these 39 other kites or kiters, many of them so damn close! Did you learn it from bats? My utmost respect!

It felt, and looked, like Maui in July, even the chimneys in the background resembled the Kanaha setting. Looking forward to more days like this!

WHAT A DAY!!!! It was great seeing people that I haven't seen in a while!! It was great to see that everyone was pushing their limits and venturing out of their comfort zone!!!! Ridiculously high board off deadmans by Adrien, and Misha was flying sky high all day long making it look easy. Hope to ride with all you guys soon!!
