does he not have a glide ratio? besides, as i have learned, even falling is part of flying. so, if your feet aren't on the ground and you are moving through space, i'm willing to call it flying--not thermalling, or soaring, but flying.

the whole point is that he is f*^#ing amazing!!!!

Things in my life don't allow me to fly as much as I should to be safe in the air. I'm not really worried about myself, in the air or landing. I just feel that since I can't spend the amount of time hang gliding that I feel someone should, then I won't be safe to other people in the air. Just looking out for other hang glider pilots.

Went back to kiteboarding at the beach. The things in my life seem to fit in with kiteboarding at the beach. The kites that we use now are much more efficient than they were 3 years ago. I'm currently using an Ocean Rodeo Rise kite.

This is a link so that you can see what's possible with these kites now:
(around the 1:30 mark in the video you can see a sample of the hang time people are able to get.)
