  1. I still think you should put kite shaped pins at the end of the dogstake lines where they head off to the right. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  2. I agree with your synopsis of major contributors. There were two parts to the prize. Why not offer one part to each of them...or three years subscription to each? Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  3. What about putting the url in white from 12 to 5oclock on the blue...reversed so the top of the letters are at circles edge? Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  4. It would also be fun to put a kite pin at the end of his lines....could even extend the lines beyond the circle for this. Then you could attach whatever style you fly to the end of JBs dogstake lines. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  5. That is cool. I think it might even be more readable if we could get a tiny space between the words around d the circle. The .com part could also be smaller if needed. I like the circle of the logo, and the Rocky peak makes me chuckle a little bit...where exactly is he flying?? I think that we should ask some non kiter folk what they think he is doing in the logo just to be sure that there is no odd implications to the logo that we don't see with our kite focused eyes.

  6. I have been thinking about making a kite or two...and the holes in my collection are SUL, mid vet, and xtr vent. So I have been contemplating how do I fill in those holes with what I make- which naturally leads to what is really meant by those terms. The "all are under 6oz" comment is interesting to me. I am guessing that there is a wieght to sail surface area ratio that must be beat for the target wind speeds. In terms of buying equipment, seems that all I should think on for. The moment is to add 50# lines to my collection. Cath recommended that I wait until I spent less time on the ground...I think I might be there now. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  7. It seems like the kite line and silhouette and lines are thinner and more delicate in the old white version....and I think I liked them that way. The one question I have is the lack of representation of team.... Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  8. Does the line color endorse a specific line brand:) Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  9. So I ran a forum search and couldn't figure this out...so here I am asking for help, lots of questions but one main idea - what is an SUL really?: What is the difference between an indoor quad and an SUL? What makes an SUL different than a standard? Can I take a standard and change/tweek some stuff and end up with a SUL sail - or is the sail itself too heavy or is the sail geometry different? Is an SUL just an indoor flown outside when there is no wind?? I know that there are times when there is not enough wind to keep my standard afloat without lots of work....and that is ok. But I keep hearing about SUL but I don't know what that really means. Not looking for an equipment fix to the no wind issue, just trying to educate myself as to what the consensus is on terms.
  10. I had forgotten the right side wrong side issue. Looking forward to seeing it done. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  11. Nigel, you are a nice guy. Paul, you are too. Man, yesterday was fun. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  12. Do you not actually basket weave them together?? That would solve the all white back without changing the materials at all. It would also be fun to play with where they weave in order to get some colors to show clear and form a pattern or picture. Also, the back white is a less intense white than any of the front colors...So they show through more than if it was the same white from the front tails. I like the RWB on this one.

  13. What if we took and overhead view of a team line and put it at the bottom of that graphic? Kinda like this:https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2ZyaoDcHD8XNS1xRVF6T2VIbnc/view?usp=drivesdk But more artistically done of course... Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  14. I am a fan of the three kites in one graphic. While it may not be the right thing for this particular project, I would like to see it done with just the kite and each of the three kite typed picked out a bit more clearly through color use. I think that that could find future use somewhere. While is is hard that JB is so clear in what he wants it makes me more interested and excited to see where this ends up. I really like the RWB sports style kite logo. I would like to see that done with a quad. [emoji6] Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  15. I have been wondering if you could get/make letters for a word using the quad and dual style handles to make the parts of the letters. The quad handles have a nice bend to utilize, and dual handles could be manipulated to be straight or round or bent as needed. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
