77 posts in this topic

We're pleased to yet again announce the next prize being given away to our most appreciated supporters, the Kitelife Subscribers... For roughly 10 cents per day they play a major role in keeping KL growing in every way.

Because I'll actually be out of the country when it's time to hold our B-Series drawing, I figured I'd put up another prize right now to appease our supporters. :ani_giveup:

==

This time around, a Kymera, $198 value!

This package includes kite, removable weights and kite sleeve!

NOTE: Primary color of the kite in this drawing is BLUE, with WHITE and GREY.

You can sign up here.

Odds of winning for this prize is currently 1/297, and will be drawn on October 25th, 2011!

Our thanks, and the very best to you... Let the drooling begin!

Now there's one that catches my eye ! It also woke me up to the fact that my KL subscription ran out on Sept.1st.

Yikes !

If I get a Kymera for my birthday before the drawing (it's on my list), I'll pass it along to one of my quad-line obsessed buddies... maybe a kite like the Kymera is just what they need to break the Rev spell... :ani_giveup:

Break the Rev spell? :ani_giveup: Never!! But it would definitely be an upgrade over what I have now!! Or a nice addition to my son's selection!!! :lol: I'll see how the RNG influencing goes before trying any "voodoo"!!

I've had really good responses on the Kymera... Generally, folks seem to over-control it at first, and then begin to be more articulated in their flight technique.

Myself, it's great to see that kind of influence on a flier - and to see that the kites are actually flying just like my personal ones, right out of the bag.

Good luck everyone, I'm looking forward to giving this one away. :kid_cheerful:

Well, well, all I can say is, "that is sweet" ! SV, you probably wouldn't be interested in this one............you probably should take that RNG banner off. You might confuse the RNG, and actually win............ ;)

SV- Haven't you figured out that your voodoo is no good. This dualie is going to go to someone who actually likes dualies. Someone who can appreciate one. Someone like me. It will give me a reason to refine my technique. LOL. So don't worry about this one. It's MINE.

P.S. (Check out my blog for news of my latest acquisition. It's not a Rev.)

Had a GREAT time this past weekend in Lincoln City... Right alongside the Rev group, there were three Kymeras set up and flying regularly.

Spence Watson, Wen Jeng, Jeremy Franklin and I had a good time buzzing the quad heads - oh wait, three of us ARE quad heads! :big_band:

    • new kite feeling
      By Cyphert
      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.
    • Presentation and Kymera sail question.
      By crismarc1
      Hello from Spain!
      After years enjoying visiting this forum I would like to present myself.
      I live in Spain and I fly dual and quad line kites, also the Urban ninja single line.
      I´m always trying to learn to improve my skills and Kitelife helps me a lot.
      Thank you very much for your work!!!
      Recently I have bought a wonderful Kymera kite from kiteparts.net.
      I have only fly the kite once and I like it a lot .... but I´m not sure about the tension of the sail.
      I would like to know if is it normal or not that the sail is so loose after the assembly.
      Here I show some little videos of my kite where you can see the sail after the assembly of the kite following the John Barresi tutorial.

      Thank you very very much!!!
