It's Summer, Let's Go Fly Some Kites / by Anne Kreamer

Ray Bethell lives in Vancouver, BC Canada, and is believed to be the world's premier multiple kite flyer.  This video is an representative example of his ephemeral art: a flawless physical mastery in the service of beauty. He started sport kite flying in 1980 and for many years flew in team competitions with his team “The Vancouver High Flyers."  He taught himself to fly two sport kites simultaneously, with one kite manipulated from the hip while he steered the other with his hands. By adding special handles to his kites, he was later able to add a third to his routine: one attached to his waist, one in the left hand and the last in his right hand. Enjoy.
