Indoor Kite Flying 2000

In 2000 I invited Anders Matson and a few other kite enthusiasts to do some indoor flying. The national Norwegian Broadcasting Coorporation was invited too!

And guess what, they accepted the invitation and I recently dug up a copy of what was broadcasted.

This video was broadcasted on the NRK main channel prime time on a Friday night back in the year 2000 and as you can see, I haven’t aged a day!

  1. It been said that time is the greatest thief, but in this case the passage of time only made made me smile. Very nice video too – didn’t know that you were doing these things to this extent at the time.
    B.t.w. discovered the background “Sukiyaki” (Ue o Muite Arukou, ) song a few years ago during some semi random Youtube music surfing.
    Your kite was the HQ Feather, but what was Anders’ kite? The colours look a bit “Prismish”? Was the student eventually successful b.t.w?

      Thank you! …or thank you to the NRK, they’re supposed to be professionals! 😉

      Well, this was my first stab at indoor flying. …or… my second actually. The video was shot on a Sunday allowing me to practice all Saturday.

      In the following years we used to fly a handful of Sundays during the winter season In a local gym. So I’ve done my fair share of indoor flying. 👍

      Yes, I was flying a Feather (the one that I’m still flying). Anders is flying an HG Gieny (teal colour) and another indoor kite designed by Anders.

      > Was the student eventually successful b.t.w?

      Yes, from not being able to keep the kite in the air for more than a few seconds to doing 360’es and up-and-overs in one day! 👍
