  1. You might be a kite nut.

    If you've woken up at 4am to go to a kite festival that is only 45 minutes away... Sent from my SM-G903F using KiteLife mobile app

  7. Mid vented wind range

    Just wondering if flying a vented (not extra vented) in 30mph would you not risk stretching the sail? Sent from my SM-T210 using KiteLife mobile app
  8. Dunstable Kite Festival

    On Saturday I set off early from home and made my way to Dunstable Kite Festival. Upon arriving I met up with a few old friends and managed to get a bit of team flying in, which was cool because as some of you know I mostly fly solo[emoji16], I even got invited to take part in the megateam which was cool[emoji41]. Met some really nice people through the day and ended up going for dinner with some fellow fliers, well I had such a brilliant day I decided to spend the night in my car[emoji23]. After a brilliant nights sleep[emoji23] I found myself the first person on the field, had pretty much the same brilliant day again, although two megaflys[emoji4]. Was able to pick a few brains and just listening to peoples conversations(about kites)gave me new things to think about and I managed to get someone to show me an axle! yey. I feel the weekend has added a new level to my kite flying, and before anyone asks no i didn't mess up the megateam, well except it turns out I can't tell left from right lol and I zoned out 3 times watching the other kites and suddenly thought oh yeah I'm flying in this as well[emoji16] But it's all good.

  12. Axle help

    Thanks for the reply, some stuff to work on there for sure. Edge of the window didn't think about that I've always been in the center regardless of wind speed. And i think I've been missing snapping on the brakes with the opposite hand to the one that is being drawn back to my hip. Shall give it a go, practice, practice, fun, fun. If all else fails, at the UK quad clinic I'm sure JB will give me some pointers. Sent from my SM-T210 using KiteLife mobile app

  15. Axle help

    Hi everyone, my first question is are axles hard? I've studied all the videos I can and watched JBs and Wattys instructional videos. Does an axle depend on wind strength, I mean can one be performed in any wind strength? I understand (well I think I do) the theory of it being a slack line trick and what you have do to get the kite rotating. My problem in light wind is I just seem to pull a flat kite towards me, and in stronger wind I get a sort of powered up forced turn. Any input much appreciated [emoji5] Sent from my SM-T210 using KiteLife mobile app
