Shoot the breeze

POSTED : May 16, 2012    2 Comments    Posted under: Video

A couple of months ago, Steffen Born asked if I could write a song for the Nasa Star 2 kite. I’d had a previous idea about writing a song about kite buggying and making a music clip to go with it, but I only had got as far as a riff and a couple lines of verse. I had not written anything for the last three years, but this was an offer and challenge I was very pleased to accept. Several hours of guitar playing and as many again of trying to get the lyrics to make sense and ‘Shoot the Breeze’ materialized. I know that the saying “shoot the breeze’ means to talk idly, but I figure if whitewater kayakers can ‘shoot the rapids’, surely us kiters can ‘shoot the breeze’. Of course, once I had the song, I had to make the video! So here it is.

  • Thanks for your great videos John.
    I’m going to buy myself a Nasa Star 2 on your recommendation.
    Just a thought for a new video….
    ….some of us come to foil land kites from LEIs, and are used to launching at the edge of the wind window.
    Foil kites seem to launch from power-zone.
    A video of self launching in strong winds would be useful (for me anyway)
    Thanks again mate for your input,
