  1. Karma Flexifoil Stacker 8/14/17

    No files here, Karma drawings are purely user to user - just send @drdemonx a private message with the info. And of course, we all look forward to seeing what you put up for the next drawing - just let @bbailey49 or myself know if you need any help setting it up.

  4. JORDAN AIR PRO bridle

    I know Steve Huff is making his own Jordan Pros these days (personal use), he should have quite a lot of info available. https://www.facebook.com/steve.huff.961/posts/1918486901744137
  5. Looking for the next step

    Aye, any kite requires some degree of footwork in the lightest winds, can't be helped. What can be helped how the kite handles (stability / trick), how well it creates sail pressure (flight) with an even draw on both lines and durability relative to your skill, balanced against what you're willing to spend - speaking generally, there is quite a difference as you go up every $100 or so.

  7. E-cigs ? Vaping ?

    Just switched to a Goon RDA, still mixing my own juice, running at about 29 watts.
  8. Quad 1.5 bridles available!

    Also note, the Spectra bridle knots are now all glued - I seem to remember @Paul LaMasters asking about this a little while ago, it's been adopted.

    Just like that, gone! Thanks Dave, and apologies to anyone else who missed the opportunity. ❤️
  10. UK Quad Clinic (Aug 31-Sep 1, 2017)

    Although this quad workshop at St Anne's sold out a while ago, ONE SPOT HAS JUST OPENED UP due to a family illness - we have adjusted the registration form to accommodate one more sign up, it's likely to go fast! http://kitelife.com/forum/store/product/51-uk-quad-clinic-aug-31-sep-1-2017/ Remember, sign up form doesn't work in special apps - web browsers only.

    The other thing that's really fun with these 4' Flexi kites, fly one on like 40' lines and handle the lines themselves using your hands to "walk" up and down the lines, bringing the kite closer and further away... Saw Lee Sedgwick do this a few times, pretty fun stuff.
