2012 Viva Colombia!

One of the most moving moments of my kiting life, I’d been demonstrating my Bugs Bunny routine in Bogota Colombia with some very challenging winds…

Lots of work, likely a sub-par performance, but I gave it my all and as I finished, a large group Colombian kite fliers rushed me from behind, hoisted me onto their shoulders and off the field with a great deal of laughter and celebration.

It wasn’t “put on” or anything like that, just mutual love – I’ll be working to pay it back for the rest of my life – viva Colombia, una familia!
