  1. I don't know how I have failed to think of this before- but is there an inclement weather policy? Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  2. I'm in. Will arrive midday Saturday....That was the compromise that fit in a date with husband and kite flying. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  3. How many mph of wind does to take to get something with that little sail surface to fly? Or does it weigh so little that it needs less wind? Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  4. When I read things like this I don't know if I am glad that my husband doesn't read this forum and so can't be worried by your lists, Or I think: Should I show him your lists as a "see? My two (three thanks to the drawing) revs are not many at all!!" Working to keep my bag lean and light but full of fun. . Currently 2 revB full sails 1 revB full vents One line set each at 30' 80' 120' Still drooling over Shook meshes, but gotta fly for a few years before I go there.

  5. Oh good, the guilt of two wins would have been hard to live with. [emoji56] Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  6. Oh! It matches my full sail pair and my vented....!!! Anyone ever done two wins in a row??? If I win two in a row will someone e give me a "two revs at at the same time" flying lesson? Although trying to fly two revs at once would blow up my dyslexic brain. Anyone else see that video? I had to stop watching cause I could not figure out how the guy was getting them to move opposite but symmetrically. Even now my frontal lobe twitches just contemplating....Man just watching JBs tutorials without a slow motion section to watch his hands is tough work sometimes.

  7. Really? Is this a sleep deprived hallucination? Happy wiggle...!! Wow, now we are just need the husband to learn to stay in the air and we will have a matched team. :-) Thank you, thank you. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  8. Hello, I am hoping to spend a little more than a month in Santiago Chile in August/September this year. Anyone got recommendations on where there might be good flying fields? Anyone living or flying locally? Any laws I should know about? I am debating on whether to take kites with me or not, so opinions would be helpful. Thanks Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  9. Ah man. I Never planned dates with my husband...Almost NEVER. Well I bought concert tickets for April 8th in Annapolis, and he knows about them. I shouldn't even be thinking about going to this but here I am typing to y'all. Arg. Our last pre-planned date (get ready for the irony folks) was to Flying Smiles kites for my first quad flying lesson....And we all know the "date" part of that was in part to minimize the guilt over doing something I wanted to do during a extended family week at the beach. I don't see anyway to swing this one but hasn't stopped we from thinking on it.... Arg Arg. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  10. Man, couldn't ya hold off on this coupon thing until after the drawing on the rev standard sail??? Gotta make the odds worse for me? Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  11. Ohh, bet he would have to arm wrestle my son for the lesson...And where the kids are concerned he is a pushover. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  12. Oh...Another chance to win a matching sail to make a team set in our household. Does it come with free lessons for my husband? Fingers crossed. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  13. I have found that I like flying to stuff I don't otherwise want to listen to....it is much easier to imagine and plan what is next for a song you know well...and thus set myself up for frustration when I don't do what I imagined for a favorite song. So for now I stick mostly to songs that I don't have emotional attachment to. I have been just starting an "unplugged instruments" station to stream and letting it go where it goes.

  14. I find that to keep learning I have a o pick a skill to focus on each time out. I try to do that skill repeatedly until I get a bit tired then I play and mix in relations within the play. I also find that listening to music helps. Music inspires repeated sequences. Getting the kite to do the same thing repeatedly, rhythmically, and symmetrically is the real goal. What ever you do with your kite at the first chorus of a song remember it and try to repeat it for every chorus. Play in between on the verses. Music also seems to allow my instinct brain take control from my over thinking brain... Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  15. Ooooo, 30s are hard. Go for 80s or 120s if you can. With 120s you just feel like the kite responds in real time but there is a bit more time and space to figure it all out before you smack the ground. And with more line you might hit smoother air up there. Welcome to the learning curve....it is steep but fun fun fun. Best part is that it is not a normal bell curve, it is more like a drive over the mountains...up and down up and down with lots of changes in grade. But if you have the patience to work in low gear the coasting is nice. The moments of good flying (just moments still) are as close to being a Jedi that I have ever experienced.
