I think the issue was that there was a massive spike in the advancement of tricks and kites over a reasonably short period of time, and fliers progressed pretty quickly to a good level, naturally that plateaued off leaving advanced fliers nowhere really to go, maybe only to get more consistent.
It was a really exciting time, new kites being released left and right, some kites only good at certain tricks however once you got that trick down it became easier to move it onto a kite that was more rounded (polyvalant), then it became much more personal to how you liked the kite to fly, but new tricks stopped coming, leaving moving onto combinations, good but not breaking new barriers.
Probably the best dual line flier in the world, Richard Debray flying his R-Sky Unik last November, amazing talent and wonderfully consistent flying, but still the tricks are from a decade ago, this is not a criticism, just where we are!https://www.facebook.com/windr.cerfvola ... 280104952/
Personally (until Covid-19 hit) I still fly a reasonable amount generally everyday when I'm on holiday as the sun goes down, if you see a green or orange SuperFly on a beach in Spain or Portugal it could well be me
It'd be good to have a meet up, however I posted in April last year in the Fly-meet section it's still the top post after a year with 2683 views, but no takers
