  1. Win: B2 STD Revolution package

    Not long now... In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  2. Perception

    Sticker shock can stop you from trying things. Kind of like being really careful with a car until you get the first ding.... Being relaxed is a big thing and can help with the unlocks. Don't forget, holes can be patched. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  3. Perception

    Really good to here about your journey. Breaking stuff is one of those things, nature of the beast. Good that you can grab another bird and have some time with it. Yes, changing kites will delay things BUT what you learn from one will help on the other. Other posts taken care of. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.

    Woooo hoooo! Saddle me up partner! In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  5. Welcome Breezin

    Don't have a NikNak but have an iNak which is super close. Great kite. Well built and finished. I used it as my "no wind" dual. Good presence at the end of 20, 30 and 50 feet. Nice blend of tricks, precision and just flying around. If the NikNak is it's big bro, it will be a fun kite. Big welcome to KL. We are a big friendly bunch of enablers...

  6. Line length

    I have a few dual lengths but mostly fly at 100 feet. I use #50 and #90 in that length. I want a #150 set but have to make do for now. #90 X 100 feet would be my recommendation. As they wear, chop them down... In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  7. Deleted replicate post that didn't have pictures. Nice kites, good luck with sale. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  8. Handle length

    13's on all but one Rev in the 1.5 format. From B Std all the way to PoloVTD, 0 to 80km/h winds, 30 to 120 foot line sets. The exception is my street rev. 15's on that one. I have it set up to be very twitchy. It's only ever on 30 footers. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  9. Welcome Justin2kites

    Nice kite. Tube tails are a lot of fun. Welcome to Kitelife. JB has been hooking them for a while. Have a look around. There is lots on here. Have you seen any of the tutorials? Gold they are. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  10. Need advise-buying new rev (classic or b series?)

    Set up with the kite upside down. Trying to fly into the ground is the most stable and safe way. Blue kite is safe, red kite could launch. Put your handles so the kite has forward drive. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  11. Need advise-buying new rev (classic or b series?)

    Building blocks, I was meaning the very basics. Setting up, breaking down, unwinding and winding up are so essential in keeping that new kite feeling positive. If you have troubles with these you are less likely to be open to just go fly. It can be over before you start. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  12. Direct Line logs

    Good read. Some potential in here for sure. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  13. Need advise-buying new rev (classic or b series?)

    Honestly, practice set up and break down. Practice unwinding and winding up. Building blocks. Just flying and getting comfortable with the "turn left" and "turn right" is good. Landings are good too. Not sure if said or implied but use a stake and set up inverted. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  14. FS: Deep Space VTD and STD

    Great set. Someone will enjoy those. Might want to add a price or that you are open to reasonable offers. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
  15. Jammin' by Skydog Kites (11/10/17)

    Big congratulations. You will love this one. It's also great to use to teach as people are less concerned about breaking a "cheaper" kite. Fully capable. In between Heaven and Earth, there are kites.
