TKL at SPI 2017, clinics and more!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Super stoked to announce that Team KiteLife will be returning to the SPI Kite Festival in February!

  • Thursday, Feb 2 evening: Indoor show (tickets available at B&S Kites)
  • Fri/Sat, Feb 3-4 all day: Outdoor festival

Additionally, we'll be offering TWO separate workshops / clinics / classes on Sunday Feb 5th!

These are fun and educational workshops covering the most important aspects of dual or quad line kite flying and we do cover a lot of important fundamentals in the starting presentation of each class, so please be on time.

If we have full classes would mean one instructor for every 2.5 students over the course of three hours, with four instructors rotating through the class... That's a ton of personal, one-on-one time with experienced fliers. ;)

Included for each discipline:

  • Basic introduction to kite types and bridle / tuning
  • Field-proven techniques for setting up and breaking down your gear
  • Basics of flight posture, body, hands and feet, as well as line tension
  • Training with an instructor on your own kite(s), building your skills

FYI, you CAN register for both dual and quad line classes if you fly both styles!

Please note, kites are NOT provided.

FYI, there is some odd Internet-related stuff going on with PayPal right now that is causing registration process to hang up - please be patient and try again tomorrow, thanks for your patience! ;)

      Helping my dad sell kites to reduce his collection. Most are new or nearly new.
      This is the revised list after several were sold. Most are not priced but will work on any you are interested in. Shipping is extra. The Prism Nexus is $180 (pictured). 
      If there are typos in my table below,  the photos of the original hand-written list are correct. (see original posting by searching "2 dozen")
      (Note: several people have reported they are very happy with what I sold them over the last month since the original post. If there is a problem I will fix it.)

      I dug this out today and remembered that we opened our show at Disney in 1989 with this Force 10 with a 100 foot tubular tail and towed behind a ski boat on the lagoon at Epcot Center.

      It is definitely well used but still in rather good shape considering the number of times it was flown.  There is one wing batten that is missing the attachment bungee cord which can be easily repaired. (see photo)  The sail is still brilliant.  All the spars are in good shape and no rot on the bridles.  The cross strut cotter pins are a little rusty, but still fine.

      I have know idea its worth, but I would be satisfied with $200 + shipping OBO.
      Please someone let me know your thoughts on the price.  Not sure?
