KAP & PAP in Rapa Nui (Easter island) DEC 27-JAN 03
Blog - Travel
Written by Pierre Lesage   
Our last trip to Rapa Nui in May 2007 was a real torture test on the equipement with gale force winds as well as on our enthousiasm with more rain than sunshine.
The latest weather forecasts look quite promising as we are packing our gears for a week of KAP & PAP in the land of the Moais from Dec 27 to jan 03.
We plan to meet with John Kahn, the author of the Muppet show and a fervent Kite flyer : the project is to KAP and PAP some characters of the Muppet Show hanging from a kite line above the Moais...Some fun in perspective and more to come in 2010... Happy new year to all !!!

Rendez vous with the whales
Blog - Travel
Written by Pierre Lesage   
Saturday August 15, 2009 we met with the whales in Areva Bay in Rurutu, French Polynesia.
While a few of us went in the water to snorkel with the whales, I launched my Kiwi Nighthawk delta, but the sea was pretty rough, the wind quite unstable and the boat was moving up and down the wind following the whale... After two dives of the kite in the ocean, we decided it was safer not to launch the KAPrig and in stead we enjoyed the show !

KAP in Rurutu August 14-17, 2009
Blog - Travel
Written by Pierre Lesage   
The whales arrived in Rurutu a few weeks ago. They come up from the cold Antarctic ocean towards the warm Polynesian waters to mate  after having covered more than 5000 km. in 4 months.
Hopefully we will have a chance to observe them and maybe photograph them from the air... More to come !!!
