Sint Anneke Plage

It's always a pleasure when the local newspaper is writing something about "special" activities seen in and around Antwerp...
An afternoon flying my kites at Sint Anneke plage...


Sola 2014


Sola Drageklubb - Kitefestival in Norway on the 7th and 8th of June.
I know the secret recipe for a successful kite festival in Norway during 25 years:  Enthusiastic and motivated people over there; Working hard at the kite workshop on Saturday making more than 200 kites a day, Play and show the kites on Sunday. (and in the evening a beer or two).   I am looking forward to join them, to help them and to drink a beer with them!! 

Guadeloupe V

10 km away from Saint-Francois at the tip of Grande Terre:  Pointe des Chateaux; one of these must visited place at Guadeloupe.  The sand changes from off-white to volcanic black with striking cliff formation. The perfect combination for some KAP pictures

Vliegerhappening 2014

De voorbereiding draaien op volle toeren.
Vanaf mid April geven we in verschillende scholen een spoed cursus vlieger bouwen. De bedoeling is dat alle (+130) kinderen  daarna hun persoonlijke vlieger de lucht inlaten op 18 mei.

Averbode



We had a great afternoon flying our kites over the abbey of Averbode. http://www.abdijaverbode.be/. A beautiful place; I definitely want to go back without a kite ;-).
It wasn't that easy to fly since meadow that we used to take off was surrounded by high trees. (Lucky the cows were not out). The kite was sitting at 200 m, the camera was mounted at 100m line just enough to get a stable air flow (4bft).

Dunkerque

 Visiting Dunkerque. Couldn't wait to take out my KAP equipment.
