Issue 46: Letters to the Editor

We don’t hear from our visitors HARDLY enough, and are always thrilled to post comments when we get them… It’s your feedback that helps us streamline, and gives us additional insight into what we do here.

I couldn’t begin to express how important your comments are, and I’d like to personally invite each and every one of you to share your thoughts with us… Positive or negative, drop us a line!

I really enjoy watching your videos, but they all seem to be stunt kites. Do you have any videos of HUGE deltas or HUGE winsocks being flown? The larger the better!

What artist or event should I search for?

Guilty as charged… Alas, all the videos in our regular archive are sport kite oriented.

There are 7 or so videos in the subscribers section which feature a 5-10 minute (each) medley of single line, displays, people and sport kites.

However, single line and display videos are on my “to do” list in the new year… Look for some to be added, hopefully starting around mid to late February.

Thanks for the email… Just hearing this from you adds to my motivation. :)

Part of the challenge is having time to get everything done, so if any of our readers would like to get involved with creating videos for our archives, please feel free to send an email our way!


Just wanted to let you know that not all countries in the world have very fast broadband. I have tried to look at your videos, but sadly, I can see about two seconds, then have to wait about 20 to 30 seconds for the next 2 seconds of video to download. As you can imagine, the whole meaning of the clip is totally lost that way.

Why not just change your page so that the viewer can at least save the clip? I don’t mind having to wait half an hour to download a clip, if I can actually watch it in the end. Disabling the save is probably a way to limit the copying of material, but unfortunately in many coutries of the world, that makes the material completely useless. In South Africa our broadband is simply not able to show the clip at all.

It’s really sad, I would have loved to see it… From the peices that I could make out, it does look amazing.

Thanks for your concern and input, it is always appreciated.

Actually, you CAN download any of the videos directly through the downloads section of our forum here…

Thank you for the kind words, please let me know if I can be of any further assistance… Anytime.
