    • Nice 4D videos! That was way more tricking than I thought was possible with the 4D, especially in the above first video ”4D little kite in flight”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=109&v=5dfA0NLuyWI&feature=emb_logo From reading the Youtube Alex Belov background info/initial comment one can see that the bridle has been modified. The dynamic bridle of that 4D had been replaced with a 3-point bridle as shown in ”4D kite Set UP” (below video). In the video it also seems like a leech line in the TE has been added: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8C8EEoHKFQ&list=UU2TPphKeYJ3RtYpSLOp2j7A Since the Prodancer was mentioned I can’t help to link to a a favourite video(/post). Dual line tricking is not mandatory for an impressive show: https://kitelife.com/forum/topic/8173-favorite-sul/?do=findComment&comment=65913 When dealing with DLKs it is easy to end up only focusing on the tricks. I just saw an old post where there was a video where the Prodancer actually did trick by making a backspin and also entering a fade (end of video): https://kitelife.com/forum/topic/5849-whats-your-favorite-light-wind-kite/?do=findComment&comment=43537

    • View Advert Ocean Shores Printed Sail + Beyond Zero Frame I'm paring down my kite bag and am selling my Ocean Shores printed sail with a Beyond Zero frame. This is a super light weight kite that is 9 months old and in perfect condition. New, this sells for $300 + shipping. It's yours for $245 and I'll pick up the shipping in the lower 48.

    • Hi Marty. Just wondering what you ended up getting? 
    • The draught is over and we had a really nice KAP session over the flooded Planina karst field, Slovenia. Shot with Nikon P330 on a Rokkaku kite. Check out all the photos and more about this magical place on our KAP website! 😉
