Pretty Cold but Really Fun!

No, I didn't go for a swim like the featured image might indicate, but I found out the GoPro is waterproof!

It was pretty close to freezing this morning when I let the dogs out. The sun was shining but there was a hint of frost in the shady parts of the lawn. Brrr!

But we had wind, a car full of kites and a couple of hours to fly. So with proper clothing, and after two cups of coffee, I was on the go, heading for a beach.

When I got there, the conditions were exactly like I’d anticipated. The low tide was revealing a reasonably large piece of the sandbank where I planned to fly and the wind – a tad lighter than forecasted – hit the beach straight in from the water. The sun was beating down but still, it was really cold. I established my base camp sheltered from some shrubbery, assembled the kite and got the gimbal powered up. I was ready to fly!

Nothing more to say actually, other than I found out the GoPro camera is waterproof! Just check out the video below and watch it to the end!

  1. From the moon ( http://kites.aerialis.com/offshore-and-turbulent/ ) to an exoplanet landscape (the under water image above). I see a greenish sky on a dessert planet while something immense is landing. (Part of explanation could be the large amount of paperback sci-fi read during the years around high school and after.)

    Good forceful and quick piloting, especially starting from 4:36, showing that kite who is in charge!

    1. Yeah, I’d like to take you with me on this ‘kiting journey’ of mine exploring the different planets in our solar system … and beyond! May the Force be with you! πŸ˜‚

      Yeah, I kind of nailed those sharp corners! I take my playing dead serious! 😎

      /S.
