  1. Jockey's Ridge State Park - Nags Head, NC

    That's quite a polite response there, "riff". Mine wasn't so kind, so much in fact, that after much thought, I have opted not to post it. I just don't see the point. Sad, sad, sad.

  6. Looking for a tutorial on bridle replacement (found)

    It's really no big deal. Lay the new bridle out on your kite. Remove one attachment point of the old bridle at a time, and replace it immediately, but with the new bridle. Just do it exactly as you took off the old one. Repeat at each attachment point, and before you know it, done and done..... Oh, do the top center first, as you need to pass the entire bridle through the loop, to make that attachment.

  9. Velcro kite straps

    Yep, seems ok now, if that is what you were asking
  10. Velcro kite straps

    Not sure what those .jpg's are, but not working - here, anyway ?
  11. Velcro kite straps

    Sounds great (and not being critical), but just curious, what part of (50 straps for $5 - $6) wasn't appealing. They are 1/2" x 8", which is entirely adequate for bundling a kite, if not, they can be tandemed together to make 16" or longer. They can be easily cut to an "exact" length with scissors, and at that price, they are practically disposable. Another bonus, you will find 1,000 other things to use them for. 😎 Link> Well, I tried to add a link, but it didn't appear to work right. Just go to eBay an search "velcro straps", should you be interested.
  12. Tail management tips please

    Well, it's pretty hard to see those wrinkles, way up in the sky, or when the tail is zooming out of the bag. By the time you bring it down, the wrinkles are basically gone anyway. Time to stuff again...... So, good luck catching me.........
  13. Tail management tips please

    I used a stuff bag. Just begin by putting the trailing end for the tail in first, then just continue until the attachment loop is on top. When it's time to go again, you can hook the kite to the tail and simply fly it right out of the bag. Sure, it might wrinkle the tails a little bit, but I never had anyone say, "your kite's tail looks wrinkled up there", not once.
  14. Velcro kite straps

    I agree with Sparkie's methods, which I eventually began using. I used the velcro straps for a while, but it just became a hassle to keep up with them, etc. If you want something of that nature, these are pretty cheap and easily found on eBay (50 straps for $5 - $6)
