Today Carl Robertshaw – does that name ring a bell or two? – published a Must See Video on his YouTube channel. The eminent “Flying Teqniques” from 2004.

Here’s a quick rundown, quoted from Carl’s video description:

Published May 29th 2020
Presented by Andy Wardley, James Robertshaw, Carl Robertshaw.

Produced by Qunit Media for Aeolian.co.uk, Brian Fattorini and Helen Ribchester. Released in 2004 on DVD and VHS.

Flying Techniques is an instructional video aimed at kite flyers who want to take their skills to the next level.

Flying Techniques details the methods for creating flying routines and concentrates on the skills required to master two and four line kites.

I have this on VHS but for pretty obvious reasons I haven’t watched it for a while. ????

However, now available on YouTube I’m definitely gonna watch it again … many times! Because even though this video is dating back sixteen years or so, it’s still packed with information for anyone taking his/her kiting somewhat seriously!

So what are you waiting for? Hit play!
