From the Editor It’s been a great year thus far and we’re now past the halfway mark for our 2011 season – lots of great events, interviews and experiences already but we’re really looking forward to the “home stretch” with late season events like the Antelope Island Stampede, WSIKF, the AKA Annual Convention and others.

Issue 74: From the Editor

It’s hard to believe we’re already into Fall and another kite season is well on its way to being over! This past August marked my 20th year in kiting and it seems somehow appropriate that we’re returning to Seaside for AKA Grand Nationals in just over a week, the very same event and location where […]

Issue 72: From the Editor

Well, I suppose I’d like to open up this issue of Kitelife by looking forward to the next one and encouraging you to take advantage of the resources we offer by sending in event reports, club or flier profiles, kite plans, photo galleries, historical pieces, “pre-event” press release articles, or anything that you might think […]
