  1. Such a good time last year, I'm glad it's on again.
  2. Sorry, I get kind of near sighted with the website sometimes - that one was too obvious. lol Moved and edited this topic accordingly, thanks brother.
  3. No sense in beating around the bush, only one place sells these anyway.

  5. Didn't see a dedicated topic summarizing , all the popular links for online sport kite plans. Bear in mind, one should always assume it's for personal use only when using someone else's kite plans. Please feel free to add more below!
  6. All topics merged here.
  7. Same kite being offered? Got links? I'd like to consolidate if so.
  8. @Subysvxak, are you still selling the kites you've posted? I've seen a few questions on your posts but the forum doesn't show you visiting since Dec 31 - the community only works if you engage it, hope to see you posting again soon.
  10. In short, magic sticks (jokingly called by non-users as "sissy sticks") provide kick stands for when the kite is in a resting position on the ground, allows some roll up tricks, makes the two wings a little more interdependent and they also shift the center of gravity away from the pilot slightly (behind the kite a few inches instead of on the same plane) which changes all inertia based movement (axels, flic flacs, quick turns, glides, etc). I not a fan myself, but they are a totally valid quad addon if they suit your style.
  11. Some references...
  12. With a heavy heart, we wish one of KiteLife's longtime supporters and friend of the kiting community an unburdened flight into the great beyond... Thanks for being Rich Comras (@quaa714).
  13. Oh BS, I usually drop a handle once at least every other session. Just not at key moments.
  14. I still drop a handle now and then.
  15. I still drop a handle now and then.
