Venus Bay run

Recommended Posts

Got a low-wind run at Venus bay yesterday and it was GREAT!

The wind was dead on which opened up the whole of the bay (all 20 plus km of it), and although the tides weren't really low, there was still plenty of beach to be had. Interestingly I had more dog attention than usual - I think because the kite is black and looks more like a huge bird of prey. Fortunately I was going pretty slow when I nudged the Collie. As for the Jack Russell - he just took one look at the kite and ran . . . and ran . . .and ran.

The Spleene was every bit the low-wind monster all the reviews indicate.

Hope the video gets you in the mood!

      Haven’t posted in while been busy more with music compositions, but still kiting and slope soaring my gliders with my son Zachary here in Christchurch.
      The Distraction by Norman Freund

      Special thanks to my son Zachary for helping out with the time lapse pre-processing and advice during the music production.
      No I have not switched to LEI’s ha ha, some one else kiting in the beach scene.
      Hey  @bakersdozen, thanks for putting me on to the Reaper DAW (Digital Workstation). Takes a bit to get used to it to feel free enough to be creative with it. I tried putting the video together with  Adobe Premier Elements, very clunky, wrecked the quality, too slow …. . So I thought why not try the video editor that comes with the music DAW, Reaper, hey not bad. Cutting up the video segments and synchronising with the music phrases is simple in Reaper since your composition is already there with all the cues and midi notes. The video quality in Reaper is good too.
      Hope you like it.
