    That’s beautiful. Initial thought was ‘whats the possibility of a tangle?’ Towards the end of the video it became clear that the combination of good piloting plus the tail staying downwind takes care of that! Original concept.

    There is a very little posibility of a tangle in the tail because – if it is tangled, this means that the kite lines are also tangled – and this is something you dont what to have because after a certain amount, the kites can not be controlled anymore – so you have to have a leader how gives the orders and do quite simple moves the second kite has to follow in a “miror” mode…

    Not so easy to do – but not so hard either –
    if both people know how to fligh a kite, i guess it’s possible to get nice moves ready in one afternoon
