I managed to squeeze in an hour or so kiting today too and did some kite aerial videography at one of my fave fields, Tronvik Beach.

Yet another cold day here up in my neck of the woods and the north easterly winds were much stronger than I thought. Meaning a pretty cold hour or so on the beach.

But wind makes kite kites fly so no complaints from my side and soon one of my Rokkakus soared up there and I was ready to hook the KAP-rig onto the taut flying line.

When the temperature drops way below freezing and the winds build up, your hands and fingers get really cold despite wearing kite mittens so I fiddled quite a bit before I got the KAP-rig ready. But finally everything was in place, the GoPro connected to my phone and I could let go of more line!

...up you go!
…up you go!

I was wondering if it was too cold for the GoPro. -8°C and winds at 6-7ms makes for really chilly conditions, but so far it looked good. But my hands….! Brrrrrr!

But soon the camera was way up there and I could see what was going on the screen of my phone. It looked good! I got really good footage of one of my favourite flying fields, the Tronvik Beach.

The beach is facing north and when the wind is coming from that direction, this is a super place to fly. Just like today.

When I got back home and warmed up a little, I put together a little video of the footage captured by my GoPro.

Here we go!
