  1. Today
  2. I seriously doubt it since I just can't stand the look. Lol. That's why I was specific in my post of which one's I'm looking for.
  3. Little story... I got a second-hand Gemini from a fellow Kitelifer years ago (I'm sure he'll recognize it from the picture), an original, before the ones with roll-bars. I couldn't figure out the wingtip lashings, so I sent a message to Tim Benson. Within hours he replied, not just with text, but he shot a little video as well. Such an awesome guy. I felt that if he took the time and effort to support his kite to a second-hand owner, that I almost had to buy a modern Gemini to go along with it. So, I did... Yes, I might be spoiled, but unfortunately, he set the bar pretty high for what I expect from a top kite manufacturer. Prism lost my respect, although I still love flying their kites. Rev lost my respect just recently, but I still love flying the B's that I have.

  5. FWIW, It's pretty difficult to tell who is actually online in the chatroom.
  6. Cool dude, that's what I wanted to hear. The lady at kites and fun things, I don't recall the name, I spoke to here briefly about the kite on Saturday and she mentioned your name and said to give you a holler. I'm sure it will do well, I was wondering though if its a noisy kite like the ng or quiet, I like the quiet ones, my boy seems to like the noisy ones. I can find out when I call the shop back if you don't get back to me so no biggie. Will have to order in the next few days so it can be ready by the ocean shores kite fest in June as it well have to be made from scratch. none of the sul's in stock. Thanks vey much for the reply. We watched you and your teammates fly last year at wsikf and it was a real inspiration for my boy. amazing work. Btw, do you still have the blue sportbrella? I saw an old post about that and had to reply, check it out, you may find it interesting.

  8. Wow, I have had the same blue sportbrella since I don't know when 2008-10 maybe and a smaller red one that's even older. I've used the blue one a lot more because its a 9 footer. I saw this and had to comment. My blue one has been to all the kite festivals in the nw for years, and it's been through living hell. Last year at the greyland festival the wind on Saturday was almost 30mph, the sound tent almost blew away. I had it set up behind the sound tent trying to get out of the wind but it was blowing so hard the wind blew around the backside and swirled behind the tent- it blew the sportbrella loose and it got inverted. I thought it was done. I got it home and all I needed to do was resew some of the loops that hold the frame to the material. I've rusted out the grommets, ripped out some of the hold downs only to resew them back, It's so faded now, it looks like an antique. I've ripped the storage bag strap off, poked holes in the bottom of the bag, each time I just pull out the trusty ole sewing machine and ttadaa, back in business. I've lost most of the sand stakes so now all the new stakes I can find are too large and won't go through the webbing, the knob stripped out that holds the extension pole, I went to lowes and bought a new knob for 3 bucks and drilled and tapped a new hole for it next to the old stripped out hole. good as new or better. Long live the Sportbrella!

  10. I have nothing against the kites except they no longer stack well.. That's the same kind of deal breaker for me as the reflex addition to the Revs breaking my catch and throw.. The end result is I don't/won't buy what doesn't work for me.. I don't mind spending extra for what I like but I refuse to pay more for something I like less.. If you fly single kites, the Freilein is great.. If you stack you are either wasting your time or setting yourself up for a lot of tuning. time invested.

  13. We were flying (rev-like) kites with lights off the balcony in Corolla. extremely small window of opportunity.. if it made it in the wind shadow of the house, you had to have a friend spot while you pulled it up for relaunch.. Was still fun though.. Not trying to hijack, just pointing out the wind act very differently around buildings.. Just another factor that comes into play..
  14. Congratulations -- enjoy the new toy. Yeehah!
  15. Hi all, I'm looking for options of smallest quality delta for my sons first kite. I started in a delta and can remember the hours of joy I had with that wing and think it's the best option to start. If anyone has one or has input would be awesome!

  18. Those are pretty cool and quite stylish..
  19. Always looking to share the sky with those who fly.. I will probably be taking a short trip to San Antonio, Texas in the next month or so.. Any Kiters in that area that would like to get together for a weekend afternoon maybe???
  20. Wicked hang time, super smooth toss and separation.

  22. Hi, NomadFlyer, and welcome to the forum. Not a whole lot of flyers in your neck of the woods that I know of. The one exception is Jeff Faje, who is right in or around Denver. He's a member of the 180GO! official Revolution Kite kite team, and although he's more into quad-line kites, he knows his way around dual-line kites also. You can PM him here or on the IKE (Illinois Kite Enthusiasts) forum. I'm sure he'd be happy to join you on the field. I'm trying to remember his handle on this forum -- he's not very active here, but he'll definitely respond on the IKE forum, where his handle is his name. If I remember his handle here I'll come back and post it here for you, although your best bet is the IKE forum. It's free to anyone who wants to join, and you don't have to live in Illinois. We have members from everywhere. Have fun, smile, and don't forget to breathe.
