  1. Hum, poking@esinger to see if he will share his sand anchor story from this weekend at Regallo in the OBX. His beautiful new huge bowl kite had some anchor lessons to teach. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  2. Yeah...it was really odd to have him swoop in out of no where into "our" airspace. I mean he was not only a normal kite length behind us, but also quite high above us so the lines didn't go in the right direction at all when you tried to figure it out. Odd, very odd. Glad to share the sky (and the weekend) with you and your creations Rob. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  3. Ok guys, somehow I got myself deleted out of the message chain where the clinic guys were talking about next weekend....can ya let me back in? I don't know what I did but I cannot find that message chain in my account inbox anymore. Just when the karma for the trip was looking good too[emoji6] Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  4. That kite is really pretty. I love the way the colors turned out. Is the mesh for the LE or for the vents? Nice work Riff. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Does the line color endorse a specific line brand:) Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  13. 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.
  14. I had forgotten the right side wrong side issue. Looking forward to seeing it done. Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
