KITES IN AN AERIAL BALLET.... BALÉ AÉREO DE PIPAS...



Ray Bethell is an amazing men. With over 80 years old, he’s a "Multiple Kite World Champion" from Vancouver, Canada. In this video you see him flying, in an aerial ballet, three kites at Vanier Park, Vancouver, holding one in each hand with a third tied to his belt. He’s used this same method to fly 39 kites at the same time! Just fantastic!

Ray Bethell é um homem incrível. Com mais de 80 anos, ele é o "Multiple Kite World Champion", de Vancouver, Canadá. Neste vídeo você vê Ray empinando três pipas no Vanier Park, Vancouver,  segurando uma pipa em cada mão e a terceira atada em seu cinto. Ele já executou a mesma proeza empinando 39 pipas ao mesmo tempo! Fantástico!

Many thanks to Kate St. John from the blog "Outside my Window", A Bird Watcher's View of the World, where I saw this amazing video for the first time.

Dear Sonia, I couldn't stop smiling watching this video and though it's almost 1am here, I sat through the whole thing. I was going to ask you where you find all this wonderful stuff you post about, then I saw the lady you mentioned. Stunning, what control, and at 80+ strong too! Thank you so much for sharing X

How gorgeous is that?! I would never think of trying to fly more than one at a time.

Thanks for the visit, Sonia!

That is impressive - I've never heard of this before. I don't know how he avoids getting the lines tangled.

How in the world does he do this?

What a clever fella!
That's some tricky kite flying.
We have a kite and my best trick is to drive it straight into the ground!
Isn't he in good shape for an 80year old - and obviously not to bothered about skin cancer.
