Canceled - LB Team Quad Clinic: Beg-Exp (Jul 30-31, 2016)

2 posts in this topic

*****EVENT CANCELED*****

This workshop is specifically tailored for first time, beginner and intermediate quad fliers who want to try their hand at team flying - if you're able to launch, hold a basic upright hover for a few seconds, fly a little left, a little a right and back down to the ground (land), you're ready for this class!

It is strongly suggested that you have attend (or have attended) one of our past Quad Clinics or Rev 101 sessions, as there is key equipment knowledge (set up, etc) that really should precede team flying.

Fliers MUST bring 120 ft lines to participate, as team flying requires everyone to be on matching length lines.

Registration is $175 per person ($150 for KiteLife Subscribers) to participate over the full weekend of learning.

Schedule is 10a-4pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Fliers bring their own equipment, and we do generally break for lunch in the middle of the day - DO bring some rain gear in case we get sprinkled on.

 

Before then, I strongly encourage you to browse these FREE video tutorials for some pre-workshop study...

Hope to see you there!

Hi folks, this event has been canceled due to lack of registration and I'll be doing a private "squad clinic" instead (already booked up) - thanks for your patience!

      Join us for two very full days of quad instruction on the beautiful shores of St Annes Beach in Lytham St Annes U.K. on Aug 31 and Sep 1, 2017 immediately before the St Annes International Kite Festival!
      Instructors will be @John Barresi (http://www.johnbarresi.com) and @Josh.Mitcheson.

      DAY ONE - AUG 31
      Quad 101: We'll be covering everything from absolute basics (pure beginner) all the way up through advanced techniques as well as the "weird stuff" like dogstake, short line catch and throw or any other quad line flight styles that may be of interest to the students, this first day is primarily focused on a full range of individual skills.

      DAY TWO - SEP 1
      Team Flying: Actually easier than it looks, team flying is proven to help your skills along much quicker while having a ton of fun at the same time in a very forgiving social environment - after having done 100+ clinics, it's very very rare that fliers didn't find a fair measure of success on the line with others - come on, pave the way for participating in a mega fly at your next event.

      Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) or similar "1.5 platform" models (like Phoenix, Freilein, Los Hermanos, etc) - we'll go through painless equipment set up, good tuning and all aspects of flight - this clinic is not brand-centric, the goal here is to demystify quad flying and set you up to win at your own game.

      If you want to be able to try team flying, 40 metre / 120 ft lines (Skybond or Spectra material) are strongly suggested as the international team standard.

      Registration is $125 (approx £100) per person and includes full access to the clinic on both days (Thu 10a-4p / Fri 10a-3p)... Please note, there are ONLY 20 SPOTS available and we expect them to fill up very quickly.

      If you want some homework, you might also check out the tutorials available at http://www.learnkites.com/

      If you're coming, we start the "Quad 101" portion of this class at 10AM SHARP on Thursday morning... It's jam packed with invaluable information and first time attendees are encouraged to consider attendance mandatory, lots of little details that add dimension to your set up and flight experience.

      Hello! 
      My name is Jason, I am from Melbourne Australia.
      I was recently introduced to a 2 line stunt kite by my brother in law, and I was hooked!   I did some research online and am now the proud owner of a Prism Quantum and a 75 foot tube tail.
      I have had a few outings with it already, and I am sure you are probably not surprised to learn that I am already waiting on replacement center T as a result of some high speed soil samples.
      So in the meantime I was hoping for some advice and suggestions!
      What would you consider "must have" accessories? Is there a list of stunts or some sort of order that I should start learning them in? Good online resources for said stunts? (other than this one!) General tips and tricks for total noobs? Relating to the Quantum: Any suggested mods, tips or tricks? What parts are most prone to breaking? Thank you in advance!
      Jason.

      I've been looking for 2" wide tails to use with team flying (one per kite), but I've been having trouble finding anything with these specs...
      1 - No raw edges if it's fabric (to avoid fraying), all hemmed.
      2 - If not fabric, some sort of strong cellophane maybe.
      3 - Light enough to flow out downwind from the kites.
      4 - Color, either all black or all white preferably.
      5 - Each 45' to 50' in length.
      Have you good KL folks come across anything that might do what I'm looking for?
      I have used the 48' transition tails from Gomberg, but they are just too darned heavy.
