  4. Need to rant?

    I went to the Monthly Rogue Valley Windchasers Fun Fly this weekend, Beach was packed, Wind was light and I flew for hours , it was awesome !!! OH YEAH !! The Rant !! Watched the firework's , went to bed , woke up at the normal 4:30 am, left the hotel with no key, 1 rev kite bag and coffee. It is normally Foggy , chilly and Zero wind . But I fly anyways... I had no plans to return, I walk a half mile to the beach, Blue sky, No Fog and Beautiful 8-12 mph Wind... WOW.. Now , I have 4 kite bags at the hotel... single line's, Power kite's, Line laundry, scrub board and my brother in-law. No cell service, and I am not walking back.....It's Rough So ... Can you believe it..... I Have to pull out a brand new x-tra vent, that I have had for almost a year and never flown..... AND FLY IT .. For almost 3 hours ...before the other flyers showed up.. And then it was time to go Home......... Sorry all... no kite breakage... Just a broken Heart, Having to go home!!! Rant; Newbie Brother in-law - Missed out on the Excellent Wind . 4 bags of un-flown kites Took video with head mount go pro, and the camera view was not adjusted right, nothing good in the frame ! Had to leave............
  5. String length for a two line parafoil?

    The longer it is ...The bigger the wind window - the slower the kite will Fly... The Shorter it is ....The smaller the wind window - The Faster the Kite will Fly... Enjoy !!

  8. Off the Grid - short line

    Yes, Makatakam....The sail was wet.... from taking a unplanned swim !not so much from the mist. The wind was blowing Down stream, But the down draft from the Falls overpowered the wind, pushing upstream. Not much room for foot work, All good fun , loved it....
