  2. UK Quad Clinic (Aug 31-Sep 1, 2017)

    I do suggest EVERYONE with an Indoor Rev look at and utilize this article. https://kitelife.com/2012/03/01/modding-rev-indoor/
  3. Fluke's journey

    nvm. answered my own question
  4. Silver Fox 2.3 UL Wing Tip Tension Help??

    Yes, certainly seems like an overlooked design flaw. I can't see any way that I would be able to thread the leech line inside the velcro strap without affecting something else, but I'm not to crafty to begin with. I'll keep thinking about it.
  5. Lam Hoac's New AC

    That’s nice! I’m jealous. I think Lam was one of the first flyer who showed the trick "coin toss". Did you know he won many competitions with the kite sewed by himself? Mid 90's, I had his kite DREAM. It flew agile but also had a great stability.
  6. JORDAN AIR PRO bridle

    Thank you so much, Wayne and John. I got information I want from Dean and Steve. My kite was completely fixed. Attachment is yesterday's. So beautiful! JOE
  7. Yesterday
  8. Pro-Wasp

    It's a dual-line kite, Ninja. The bridle connects in four places on each side. It's bigger than most and gives a good time on the beach.
  9. Karma Flexifoil Stacker 8/14/17

    I'd get in for some line laundry or a fighter kite. Heck any of the stuff you listed would be a great drawing.
  10. Not such a beautiful sunset. 😔

    I leave the Dream On bridle untouched. It just hangs down out of the way. I've never had a problem with tangles. I put pigtails on both the Dream On and Little Dreamer for quick attachment of train lines and so I can fly each individually. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  11. Prism 25th Anniversary Special Edition Quantum

    Congratulations jimmy hope you enjoy it. Sent from my IPhone
  12. Just got finished with the Keystone Kiters Kitebuilding Workshop. This year's feature kite was the Drumbox. The weekend was fun, the camaraderie was great and the kite was a relatively easy sew. Looking forward to getting home and giving it its first flight. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

  15. Jockey's Ridge State Park - Nags Head, NC

    I know Paul and I know Jockey's Ridge. I understand completely where he's coming from and on a least a few levels I agree with the assessment.. If you don't make the equipment truck up, it's quite a trek and even a light load starts to weigh you down.. Like many other things in travel, it's a great place to be, just not the most fun to get to. I've had my almost fainting moment there a few years ago.. It's like a desert in the middle of an oasis. It's still one of my favorite places to fly just not looking forward to the trek up and down the dunes. Only difference is I love the howling winds and my quiver shows it. That even all by itself makes it well worth it for me.. I still plan to go to OBSKC, but my personal kite load will be much MUCH smaller with the change in venue. For the event the other site is a much better fit. Sandspurs and all.
  16. Unless this dealer has lowered its pricing, an Exodus Std goes for $215 & the Exodus Mid Vent goes for $245, plus the additional UL T-0 frame for the standard sells for $80. That's what I payed in May/June of this year. If they can be had for less, brand new, I can adjust as well. Both of the kites I'm selling are brand new & never flown.
  17. Newbie Bay Area friends and Rev learning tips

    @Paul LaMasters thank you kindly for sharing yes agreed, it's not great for the LE by sliding that way, that only happened to be the start of the clip the wife got for me haha, I am fine launching up down and inverted launch too, and turning upright from inverted at launch. @makatakam thank you too, super appreciated pointers! Like seriously, every tiny bit any of you share or comment or critique is absolutely priceless. How else would anyone learn anything then? I was flying with top leaders knots all out but one knot in. Barresi leaders. I'll add another video shortly from the day of flying before we headed out to the beach, it'll be more boring to watch since it's just slower more controlled flying drills. I actually got scared the spars would pop in that wind, 3wrap. I am seriously in love with the pull of the 1.5b in that wind though, it's enough to drag me along the sand but not enough to actually take me off the ground and into the abyss unlike real power kites would when dead on in the wind window. Post again soon :D:D
  18. Very Disappointing First Flight

    Truth.
  19. My HQ Symphony 2.2.4

    A few more of these have been spotted in the wild.. @Deke Haid and @windpoacher have published either pics or video of their adventures.. Looking forward to seeing more..
  20. Flying Multiple Kites

    Excellent photo description, shared already to keep for myself and others in the future. Great job!
  21. Foxy Silver Fox

    She came in over the weekend My new Low Wind Kite selection, the Silver Fox 2.3 UL by Flying Wings. Ill post an un-boxing review over the next few days and an initial maiden flight the first time she flys.
  22. at it again (now what?)

    Great kite. Great moves. Keep up the good work.
  23. Line Lengths for Beginners

    two lines of 50# rarely means 100# by distribution. this is happening just at launch till strait up over the head. any left right movement put the pull on to a single line or some percentage on second one so... be carefully and do not count on the sum of two lines.if you make tricks you must to have the full load on to a single line and add to that initial pull you give to create the movement.that actually add some more to the full pull of the kite.

  28. Silver Fox UL / Acrobatx UL??

    Very good idea, didn't think of that. I already ordered the Silver Fox, but just might try your suggestion anyway.
