  1. Hi Your last video looks like the wind speed is slightly slow for the kite that you are trying to fly. My advice to you: Read and follow the kite specs (wind speed range). Read on-line about the wind window. Start practicing Dodd Gross's 6 step video (youtube). Its not about slack line tricks, its about gaining control over the kite and strating to work on the much needed "muscle memory". Its all about 3 basics - practice, practice and more practice [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G935F using KiteLife mobile app

  3. Nice kite. Enjoy it Sent from my SM-G935F using KiteLife mobile app
  4. I live in Israel and no kite shops at all...so I can relate to your situation... I would order all of the parts mentioned except for the bridle. It is very unlikely that you can damage it in a crash or even after 100 crashes....If you insist buy one from the kite manufacturer or buy the the string, watch some YouTube toturials and DIY. As to the spars and other parts - you can replace one if you can identify and buy exactly the same....if not replace to alike but on both parts of the kite (keep a perfect symmetry). I buy most of my parts on line from "Kites and fun things" but there are some also some other excellent places on line. Good luck and welcome Sent from my SM-G935F using KiteLife mobile app
  5. I am only flying "real" stunts for a year and can preform a limited number of slack line tricks, but I can tell you that there is no one kite that is the best. Pending on design and structure even the "elite" stunts are different in performance. It's all about personal taste, skills and individual prioritization [emoji41] Sent from my SM-G935F using KiteLife mobile app
  6. BTW - to my view the most important "must have accessory is simply another kite. At this stage you can buy an affordable stunt exactly for those days when things don't go your way. I always go to fly with more than one kite. Repairing is part of the fun and you will always brake something....I prefer doing it at home and not waist "wind time" Sent from my SM-G935F using KiteLife mobile app
  7. Forget about flying in Santiago....no winds....the city is in a valley.... You should travel to the sea shore, 1.5 hours from the city Sent from my SM-G935F using KiteLife mobile app
