Ivo asked me to join him for some kite flying in Wenduine at the  Surfing Elephant Beachclub.  See below some pictures of my kites?


During lunch time I was able to organise my maiden flight of my new Trilobite.    I am more than happy with this new kite!

In de aanloop naar de vliegerhappening op Linker Oever toe,  hebben we een 16 tal klassen begeleid in het maken van hun eerste vliegertje.  Man; Na al die jaren blijft het een kick geven om al die glimlachende kinderen te zien hollen met die vliegertjes in de hand.

Vandaag was het de laatste klas!   Vandaar dit filmpje!

- Kite workshop:  Linker oever


I was invited for a kite workshop with the kids (6th grade) of the international School in Brussels. The locations of this 4 day event was in the Stayokay hostel - Soest (The Netherlands); 100 meters walk from the Dunes. After a small presentation on the general kite world of today we had some talks on the kites used in the different parts of the world; Always interesting to see the feedback of the kids- having roots there.    For each group we had foreseen 2 workshops: An individual project (sled kite) and a team project (kite arch).
Although I wasn't able to stay till the end, I received the above video showing the result of those great days...


70 meter of tail spotted above 'het verdronken land van Saeftinghe'  it was a very surrealistic view.
