  1. Past hour
  2. Kite Forge

    I’ll be backing the Kaiju with an array of new tutorials too, I’m really excited to dig into the information - way easier than it looks. 🤘
  3. Line length

    Thanks that makes perfectly simple sense. I'm' going to replace the lines on a widow ng soon. Was thinking 100 ft would help quicken the learning curve.Makes sense that the additional lag time won't do that. My 90 lb are actually 65 ft not 82. I'll try that when my lower spreader is repaired.
  4. And The Collection Grows

    Yes. It's the Joel Sholz design made by Go Fly. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  5. Yesterday
  6. Kaiju

    Thanks! Probably a bit too light for 6mph steady, I’d expect this [indoor] to periodically fold up in that. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  7. Quad Count (they all count)

    Adding in my two latest additions. 1 Rev SLE 1 Beautiful Evil quad That brings my total up to 30. I think that's enough, don't you?
  8. Perception

    Get to go out in a few minutes. Practicing. Inhale exhale repeat. DO NOT HOLD BREATH TILL FALLING DOWN !! Hoping for success.
  9. Fluke's journey

    Been playing in 0 to 6 mph last 2 days with my nighthawk. Tried 50 lb x 50 ft line set. Not much success . Kept tipping on it's nose trying to launch. Adjusted nose to farthest point and made it worse. Kite has p 200 lower spreader and P 300 upper. Nose isn't as reinforced as my widow and am real leery of removing it. Did it on the widow and not good enough see a difference but it has p 300 in both spots. Fly in a pasture and the weeds will really tear up those fifties if I keep trying them. I'm more relaxed learning in these low winds. It's harder but the crashes have been a lot easier. There's no one around so the walk of shame is not so shameful. Don't think I'll ever try the widow below 5 or 6 mph again. Wasn't made for that anyway. The nighthawk has a lot more flex so I'll continue low winds with it. Don't have the proper stuff yet for low wind but I'd rather be frustrated walking to the kite than not flying. 35 ft x 65 lb line set ?

  14. Welcome Justin2kites

    If you have a crowd at the beach watching and your kite hard turns all by itself into the pier look quickly into the crowd. Some will be roaring with laughter ,some walking quickly away others just hopelessly staring. Look for the ones with tears in their eyes. Run to them with all haste. They're the kite flyers. They'll help you fix it.

  16. Win: B2 STD Revolution package

    Not long now... In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  17. I started flying kites relatively late in life. Following a fifteen year career working in the entertainment industry as a theatrical lighting designer, I was given a stunt kite as a gift. Well, that was it! I was hooked. I proceeded to develop a stunt kite show which performed at outdoor festivals and special events throughout Canada and the Eastern United States. Our kite show matured, and in 1989 I ended up on the lagoon at Epcot Center/Disney World, Florida. My Kite Team (The Shooting Star Kite Show) performed a series of 450 stunt kites shows, choreographed to music while being pulled behind ski boats powered by 200 horse power motors creating our wind. The show was called "Fantasy of Flight" and was performed five times daily throughout a three month contract during the summer of 1989. The Disney Corporation loved it so much, that in 1991, they invited me back to help conceive and execute a 14 minute spectacular outdoor extravaganza called: "Surprise in the Skies" https://youtu.be/XjWHZ2fQczw

  20. Neil This is actually a decorative piece that is attached to the fly line between the anchor point and the suspending kite (ie: a 125 or 252 Flo Form or alike) The below link will give you a good idea of what I mean. Be patient as you watch as the spinsocks show up about half way through. The lighted spinning spinsock is the 45 footer in action. https://www.dropbox.com/s/98lxccefn4qyuky/VID_20171123_123446512.mp4?dl=0 Kindest regards Pete

  25. Kite Sale

    OK some of you have heard this story before and some have not so let’s start at the beginning. Well back at the Apple Festival we got approached by a lady whose brother had died in California and left her his kite collection and she did not know what to do with it. We, being Nancy Lockwood, Phil Salzstein, & me (Harry Gregory) went to the lady’s home in Warren, Oh. to look over the collection. What we found was shocking, amazing, and downright silly. To bring this collection back to Ohio from California was not what we would have done. We would have tried to sell it right there. But hey, it’s here now so here where do we go from here! We feel that they are here so go with the flow. If you go to the OHIO SOCIETY for the ELEVATION of KITES Facebook page and go into the “File" directories (or the attachments here) you will see 3 files called “KITE SALE SPORT KITE SHEET.PDF” “KITE SALE SINGLE LINE SHEET.PDF” AND “KITE SALE ACCESSORIES.PDF”. These list the kites and accessories we found is the collection and the condition that we felt the kites are in. On 12/06/17 we rented a hall and opened each and every one of the kites to be photographed so if you look at the sheets you will see each of the kites has a number and the photos are coded to what the list is, so sports kites are SK1, SK2 and so on. Single Line SL1, SL2, if there is more than one photo it will have a letter after like SK3a. So look on the list to see the kite you want, and then look in the photos. The photos are in the Facebook page and go into the “Photo" directories. The photos are separated by the Sport kites, Single Line Kites, and Accessories. If you have any questions, let me know. We are taking offers on all the kites and if you want them before Christmas I think we need to shut this down by the 15th so look over the list and the photos. A word of advice. We took the octopus into UPS and had them tell us worst case shipping. We figured $350.00 to ship the west coast. I will post the offer list every day and when a kite looks like it is not moving any more I am going to drop the stake hammer. Look and offer. I will try to inform anyone who get outbid but remember I am not Ebay. I just take PayPal. I will update the list every day. Let me know at kiteinfo@osekcleveland.org or at OHIO SOCIETY for the ELEVATION of KITES Facebook page. Our club get a percentage of the sales. 12-08-17 ACCESSORIES KITE LIST.pdf 12-08-17 SPORT KITE LIST.pdf 11-23-17 SINGLE LINE KITE LIST.pdf
  26. Welcome Breezin

    Ha that's funny. Went to the Doc for real this morning and told them about my new about my new affliction. The nurse and P.A. were pretty concerned. There experience with kites is watching traction kiters in the snow and on the beach. Explained the different aspects of kiting and they concluded this will be a good thing. Told me my med intake better not go up and I said to much Tequila makes me stupid and fall down. Don't worry about it !! Got my snapshot 1.4 and Micron today . The Micron is the ugly orange one that I'll be able to see 100 feet away. Winds were blowing to fifty today. Blew some of the siding off the post office Glad I didn't get a Fazer. Would have tried it and then you know. More Tequila than advisable.
