I cant decide if this is legit or not...your guys's thoughts?

One moment the cameraman is at the beach, then he is next to a roadway near the airport. I don't think you can have cars driving by that close to the sailing site.

Here's a pic by Justin Cederholm of an Air France Boeing 747 coming in for a landing at Philipsburg/St. Maarten–Princess Juliana Airport in the Netherland Antilles.

Ive actually seen video of this and this is a legit photo.

I dont know if youre allowed to kite at a place like this, but personally I think you'd have to be a fool if you tried. Forget watching out for trees and power-lines...watch out for the Jumbo Jets!! ohmy.gif

Obviously it isnt the same place, but you get the idea...

But notice that the road I mentioned is perpendicular to the beach. If it is right there, then it should have been visible in the early part of the video clip.

Here's another one for you.

Haha hell yeah...its the only way to fly baby!

Nice kite...how much did that cost?


About the video...couldn't he have his back to the road while taping the rider, then get it as he turns around and zooms out while following the plane? I really dont think it's a real video either, Im sure we would have heard about something like that happening in the mags....

I saw this earlier today...I love how some guy just walks by like nothing is happening.

Joel, I dont think I could pull off a stunt like that sorry man, ducks arent really my thing.

I did find a video of that dream job of yours you were telling me you wish you had...
