  2. Hi, I am in search of a new owner. Since arriving at my current home sometime in Nov of 2016, I have been out flying a few times. During these occasions, I have been flipped, twirled, dragged, flown a little, but mostly crashed. Yeah mainly crashed, not too much fly time. Results of these crashes have caused a few things to break, tear, or get lost. To begin, I have a tear in the center near the tail section. This tear has been taped with kite repair tape. Seems to be holding ok. Next we have had a broken center spreader that has been replaced. Not sure of the brand, but it’s the red/black ones. Another flying occasion, my owner lost my tail weight…again by crashing. The great people at A Wind of Change were nice enough to send me a replacement. My tail weight is now taped on as so my owner will not lose it again. For my last time out….thinking this would be better! You guessed it…another crash. This one was really bad. The replacement center spreader held up nicely, but the center T broke this time. As you can see in the picture, it has not been replaced. One time, while out flying, one of the lines broke. I was hoping the other one would break so I could fly away from my owner that couldn’t fly me. Well he managed to get me back down, probably crashed… I don’t remember. With my story, comes a ransom note from my owner… Please pay $180 OBO to have me shipped to your home. Summary: Kymera dual line sport kite – Blue – Condition – almost like new except for: Tear that has been taped near tail section. (Will send black kite material for section replacement) Broken Center T (I don’t have this repaired) Sky shark center spreader is broken – but have replacements (includes both, broken and new) Instruction manual and tag Carry bag

  4. Hello All~ I am selling what I believe is a one of a kind North Shore Radical by TOTL. It is a tie-dye sail that is is beautiful condition. I am honestly not sure how long I have had it in my bag, but it has markings from 1998 as well as a signature by Ron Reich from 2001. I have never flown it myself, and the bridle looks in perfect condition. I am asking $300 OBO. It is a beautiful, rare kite that, as I am aware, is a one of a kind. Please let me know if you are interested. I can email pics, the photos are too large to upload.

  6. Dear forum, I want to share with you a video I made, a project really. This project took me about six months, four locations, 2 continents, 3 kites, 1 Xiaomi Yi sport camera, one John Lenon, some improvisation, and a lot of patience. The idea was to make a video of stunt kite tricks from a completely new perspective. The innovation of filming from the kite's perspective has an added value, meaning the simple fact of seeing everything from the other side, watching the affect of the lines on the kite, having a closer look on the work of the bridle, etc. Also, I hope that the international locations would add even more color to the backdrop, as it were. I'm no master in kite tricking. On the contrary, I bow my head to the masters and veterans, from whom I still have a lot to learn. But I do want to contribute to this incredible sport and its amazing international community, which I have grown to love and appreciate over the last two years. I hope that in some small way, I'm doing my part in growing the sport, drawing more followers to it, and possibly shedding a new, although possibly pocket size, light on things. I had a lot of fun making it. I hope you enjoy watching it. http://youtu.be/89vmM2UUzag
  7. This is going back in the bag. Thanks for looking. I am selling my home-built Monster std. in order to fund other toys. This is a great kite designed by Christian Derefat and built by me. It is built to the designers original specifications:Leading edge: 6mm pultruded (one piece)Upper Spreader: 6mm pultrudedSpine: 6mm pultrudedLower spreader: Skyshark 5pt black diamond Sail: Icarex and Mylar with Icarex pinstripes. LE is Dacron. APA fittings with RSky Center-T. Nose is Bisonyl.And yes, that is polyester florescent yellow contrasting thread!It has the Derefat feel that some of his other designs have. Very tricky, great jacobs ladders and super pitchy. This kite is a real looker. The only build flaw is that my machine dropped the pointed-part of three stitches in two of the pinstripes--only noticeable if you look for them. Look hard in the last picture.No holes, tears, or any heavy wear; the kite is over all in really good shape. I have been home building like crazy and have more kites than I can fly.Asking $190 plus shipping (keep in mind the one piece LEs may make shipping a few dollars more than normal--not sure about this though).Please don't hesitate to ask questions.
  8. Hi All I'm looking for a pre-loved, good condition Nirvana NSE 15. Does anyone have one to sell for shipping to Australia? Cheers Craig
  9. I've bought several dual-line kites as of late and need to find a new home for 5 of my kites. I hate to sell them, but I just don't have room. All sales will need to be through PayPal without fees. All prices are for the kites only, shipping is additional for CONUS only. Please PM for all communication. When communicating, please be sure to refer to the kite number. These kites come with socks or cases but no lines are included. I've tried to include as much information as I can for each kite, but if you need any additional info, feel free to PM. Thanks, Robert 10/28/2015 - Discounted some of the kites. Last time for a discount. If these don't sell, they'll just go back in my bag. Keep in mind that I am willing to do a trade or sell these kites as a package. Just let me know. 11/17/2015 - Thanks.... all kites are back in the bag.
  10. OK folks. The next Karma giveaway is a Benson Gemini. This is a great dual line kite made by a man known for his quality craftsmanship and innovative designs. This kite is very colorful as far as Benson's go. This kite was bought used to try to work on advanced tricks. It is very floaty. Too floaty for my ham fisted inputs and attempts to start learning some advanced tricks. Nor do I have the right winds for this. This would be excellent for those with some access to beach winds. Kite condition is good with maybe some TLC needed. No rips, tears or patches. No roll bars on this model and one of the standoffs is coming loose from the sail. Easily fixable, but it has never prevented me from flying it. Flown over grass only (by me). Comes with original bag. No lines. This kite deserves a home that can set free the tricks in its DNA. A different Gemini, flown by our own RobB on this forum: http://youtu.be/N0NNm0uLBcI The drawing will be on June 1st. Entry will be made by replying here, starting with "I'm in" and entry number will be by order of entry. RNG will be used for the drawing. 1. Amexpmh 2. Brucifer 3. Tim P 4. Sparkie Rob 5. GammoRay 6. 3wrapframe 7. FredVanCuren Standard Karma Note from the Moderators This is a Karma Drawing. The winner of the drawing is expected to pay it forward by offering their own prize for the next drawing. Please do not enter unless you are willing to offer your own prize, preferably not the prize you just won. Drawings should be open for entry approximately 2 weeks, and the next drawing should be posted as soon as possible to keep the Karma rolling. These drawings are run by and for KiteLife members. The moderating team only ensures that your drawing post contains all of the pertinent information (drawing date/time, adequate prize description, drawing rules) before approval. If you are a KiteLife forum member from the US or Canada, you are eligible to enter. You do not have to be a paid subscriber. Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize. Here is the link to the original Rules and Guidelines thread: http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/5426-rules-and-guidelines-please-read/ The mechanism for the drawing itself is entirely at the discretion of the person offering the prize. In the past, entry number has been determined either by order of entry or by the post number in which the member declares entry into the drawing. The drawings have been performed using the RNG method (http://www.random.org/sequences/) or by choosing the numbers out of a hat (I believe an adorable daughter did the picking in that scenario). The only requirement is that the method of selection is clearly spelled out in the drawing post. Entry into the drawings is done by STARTING a post in the drawing thread with the entry phrase chosen by the drawing host (Traditionally "I'm in", but "I LIKE" has been used as well). In order to remove any confusion or misinterpretation, only entries with posts that START with the phrase will be considered. As with all other KiteLife drawings, bantering is encouraged. This is for fun after all.

  14. Bridle questions

    So i have a lot of dual line and most all have a little different bridle. i dont know the names and what they all mean. turbo bridle, reverse turbo bridle, whats the difference. i have a bead bridle system on my silver fox and its a knock of nirvana. the guy i was flying with yesterday made the same bridle that is on his nirvana and put it on his silver fox. the sea devil is the exact same as the nirvana as well what bridle does it have. is there any benefit to a fancy bridle over a basic 3 point bridle for an older kite that wont see any slack in its lines? cheers
  15. Fun Flies

    What measures do you take to get people together for just some plain old fun? I have tried several times to get some locals together...and it always fails for one reason or another. I am in no way stopping my efforts, just wondering what steps others take to make it happen. I work funky hours on days when most are relaxing..so it makes it tuff sometimes. Most of my flying is in the weee hours of the mornings now...but still want to make it happen. I have heard some horror stories over permits and city participation from not far away...but I'm looking for more fun then festival for starters. Anyways, input and thoughts are greatly appreciated
  16. new kite feeling

    So i have been searching and searching for the right kite. a few months now. no rush as i have a few that i am very happy with! i have been flying a UL and standard Ocius all summer. but its to fast for me. its a great trick kite but to fast and squirely for me i didnt have time to fix over steer and under steer. so i needed a slower kite. and i needed a kite that only did what i told it to do. I finally found it this weekend. A Kymera! wasnt first on my list. i was looking at lots of kites much higher in price but i never even tried one. until this week. i flew Johns for a while and it was great!! he had other kites that i tried as well they were all great. but i needed one that fit me. Its loud and fast when you tell it to be and not when you dont. turns great, goes straight no over or under steer just does what you want and nothing you dont. thats really what i needed something that would just do what i want. Did i find the perfect kite? i dont think that exist but i did find the perfect kite for me so im happy now. i havent felt this feeling since my first flexi foil. so my question for you is: what kite do you love? i want all the juicy details.
  17. 2 Point Landing Help - Dual Line

    I've been searching for instructions or a step by step tutorial on how to perform a 2 point landing. The most I got was this video, which shows a guy doing it over and over again. Cool vid but his hands move so fast I can't seem to get the whole thing down. I have been trying this for a little while now and the best I can do is get a stall a bit off the ground. I've walked it forward and it floats down but I can't seem to get the snappiness I see others do when performing the 2 point landing. Can someone either direct me to or provide me with a good step by step on doing the 2 point landing in the middle of the window? Thanks in advance. I'm new to organized flying and really want to get better at flying with intent. Augustus
