Issue 60: KiteChi with The Coreylama

I had a nearly complete piece written all filled with more things we can do to alter the future of our kite club. I am on something of a tear concerning the future of the AKA. I started with this club back when kite flying was mostly single-line and mostly a hobby practiced by older, […]

Issue 59: KiteChi with The Coreylama

I want to change the world. Well, at least the AKA kite world. I want to change the way we structure our AKA convention. Before we go too far let me say up-front that I am not anti-competition, merely fond of finding other ways to play. I have found kite competitions to be a bit […]

Issue 4: Buggy Newz

So… You want to go buggy, huh? It sure does look like a lot of fun… But (I hear you say) is it dangerous? Buggies are a really fun way to sail on the land, powered by kites. The danger is only when a rider gets into situations beyond their skill level or knowledge. I […]
