Top stuff Alex finally I've got to watch it - it took ages to load! Very good, very interesting and looks like great fun. Is that a school!!?? I expected a paddock and you were DSing over the tennis courts! Is it completely flat on the other side of the trees? It looked like it.

got me thinking ... there must some seriously good treeline DS opportunities in NZ. I remember when we were travelling around over there, the big wind barrier treelines between sheep paddocks were amazing. Some were super tall. They needed a big cherrypicker to get up there to trim them, (poplars I think?) and they were really very solid walls - complete windblocks. If you could find a big one like that which faces right into the strongest wind it could be amazingly good. Maybe add that to the International NZ DS fest agenda!

Beautiful landings. You could see the power of DS ... when you bungee launched you got reasonable height and dived in, then after a few laps you punched out to about 3x higher!!

Good work.
