  1. Past hour
  2. Have you seen this ?

    I was wondering the same thing. Do they own the rights to that design...? Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  3. Creating Single Line Kite Trains?

    That might do it... If I can find a grommet around here. China is not exactly a shopper's paradise if you can't read the language (and have only 2 years of college Mandarin).
  4. Welcome K'Tesh

    Not long after the 1989 crash, Kitelines magazine did an article on kite injuries, and I was quoted in that article.
  5. Today
  6. Material for Rokkaku- kids paint

    There is a kit that is exactly what you're looking for... My family got me one for father's day a few years ago. They never finished the artwork, so I can't say how well it turned out. The rest of the assembly looked pretty easy, and the sail material was similar to Tyvek.

  11. Welcome gljjr

    Cool beans. Welcome aboard. Sew if you're sew inclined.
  12. Win: JB for a Weekend (5/15/2018)

    This sudden feeling of Deja Vu settles over the contestants like fog in the marsh. Could it be ...... Look, up in the sky -- nope, just a bird.
  13. 2019 WSIKF World Record Quad Questions

    Does anyone from the area know of hotel options or discounts to festival flyers? Be looking for travel mates to split costs from east coast. Trying to make it happen. Thanks!

  17. We flew our kite above one of the largest intermittent lakes in Europe, Lake Cerknica, a Ramsar and Natura2000 site. This lake is very good at playing "now you see me, now you don't" - check the full story on our website! ;-) Shot with Nikon 1 J1 on a Great White Delta.

  20. Advice for a new REV Purchase

    I remember watching 'em fly in a dead calm for a whole year in DC (none of my kites from Chicago-land or Ft Lauderdale would fly there!) I remember the first time someone asked me for advise (and I turned around to see who they could possibly be speaking to) I remember the first time I thought I could make a better bridle, then an improved overall design, finally I don't want it made "factory-fresh styled" anymore, make it my way. You can push kite flying in so many directions, the best builder, tuner, flier, team-mate, sherpa, or spouse!
  21. Quad Count (they all count)

    I am adding another quad. It doesn't have a name yet, but "Illegal" is as good as any, one of Ashworth's 3rd Gen designs made by Eliot Shook. Pictures to come eventually! Hopefully bridled-up and testing this weekend in ocean city
  22. Replacement line for Rev 1.5

    imagine a fine sports car with old useless bald tires, ... it doesn't matter how much power you put out, it ain't getting to that last square inch of the road! Well you kite is that same way, save a dime and see if it effects performance overall? Okay sure, but Save 25% and I will question you again in 60 days and at the end of the year. Did you really save money or in hindsight you should have gotten the best darn tires to fit your ride instead, regardless of their price? I am hard on my lines and fly a lot, (10 hrs a week minimum) so the expense of lines is just a part of being sport kite flier, several times a year I buy new strings. You could make your own handles or even a killer kite, but you gotta BUY flying line no matter what! This is no place to go cheap, save $ on something else and get the best darn lines you can find, it is that last sq. inch of contact with the pavement!
  23. How much longer to replace this bridle?

    i named that pigtail. may be loop, may be extension. how long is easy to do and cheaper the name is not important
  24. Replacement line for Rev 1.5

    i love Skybond, i have 2 sets of 120 and on 2 years no stretch on them except after first fly. that yellow is visible on any terrain i flayed and even they show some wearing they remain slippery. with LPG i had some bad experience, trying to untangle the lines i had some bad knots because of dried grass or small twigs caught in at landings or in parking
  25. Corolla Quad Clinic (Apr 7-8, 2018) **SOLD OUT**

    or any one of us from my perspective..
  26. Premier Vision

    Google "wind map" and you can see how the wind is constant flux and how many different directions are happening at the same time. Now imagine that the map of the country you are looking at is only the county you are in. Well, there won't be quite as much variation locally, but obstructions like moutains, buildings, wooded areas, depressions, river valleys, cold and hot areas of ground will all affect the wind a bit. It never all comes from just one direction except from off the ocean. Too many variables to "pin" it down.
  27. Replacement line for Rev 1.5

    Does anyone have replacement line recommendations for a Rev 1.5 SLE? I bought the kite about 10 years ago. I’d only had it a little while when I took it to Port Arkansas,TX and was flying on the beach. While taking a break, a car drove over my lines and tore them up. I think they were trying for the kite, but only got my lines thankfully. Lacking lines, I put the kite away and haven’t flown since. However, I now have children that are old enough to begin flying and would like to start flying the Rev again with them. I’ve searched but can’t find a good recommendation for replacement line. What weight, length and type of line should I look for? Thanks.
