Continuing to demonstrate youth breaking new ground in mass media, Tristan Underwood recently passed his Vancouver (BC) audition for the inaugural season (2012) of Canada’s Got Talent (CGT)… Already a veteran flier and kite competitor at the age of FIFTEEN, Tristan has more than 10 years of serious kiting experience under his belt and is skilled with all manner of controllable kites, both indoors and out.
For his performance on CGT (below), Tristan utilized the iTrix indoor dual line kite, followed by an Indoor Revolution quad line kite.
Thanks to Gary Mark for making the footage available for review… Per the info on YouTube:

Some of you may recall Connor Doran’s adventures on America’s Got Talent a couple of years ago, where he battled his way into the semi-finals using only indoor kites… That exposure increased public awareness of indoor kiting, and has enabled Connor to tour and perform, still sharing his experiences with audiences throughout the year.
Best wishes from the whole Kitelife team for Tristan and Connor’s continued success – kiting will continue to evolve and it’s the young who certainly help drive that evolution!
