I would get in touch with the photographer, Paul Porter and see what you can work out. If you email me, flkitesurfer at hotmail.com, I will send his email address back to you. He did nail some great shots during the race. I can recall a down draft eddy from the chopper spinning along and about dropped my kite to the water during the shooting. Great times.

Steve McCormack of Kitepower in NSW, Australia sent this video along. Amazing what you can do with some flowing water.

As it is snow season in parts well north and Christmas today, wanted to put up a few shots from the mountains in snow ...































The guys were kiting from Key West to Cuba around the time this was taken.

This just came in from Norway via France? Pretty amazing stuff and well filmed too. I understand there is a second extreme sport. It involves competing teams of guys running around below the cliff catching the skies the flying squirrels kick off?! Looks like St. Nick was the third guy off the cliff. Glad he made it home in one piece to take care of things last night.
