15 - Steven Leonard does a 3D catch

West Coast Rev Clinic V

I have been flying kites for a long time, probably 25 years. I wouldn’t say that I was proficient with anything other than a 1 line kite. I am ok and am learning to trick with dual line kites but where my heart is, where I am I believe passionate about kiting is quad line […]

Issue 77: Windless Indoor Kite Festival 2011

The longest running Indoor Kite Competitions and Performances in the world! (I think. Please let me know if I’m wrong.) I speak for everyone when I say thank you Scott Davis, Event coordinator and all around nice guy. You ROK! We truly appreciate all the work you have put into it. As the founder of […]

Issue 70: Windless Kite Festival

Yeah, we’re on the road again, this time to the 9th Annual “Windless” Indoor Kite Festival – the oldest continual Indoor Festival in the USA. Every year, I’m kind of surprised by how young this “oldest” USA festival is, but then I remind myself that Indoor flying is really a relatively new activity on the […]

2006 Washington State Intl Kite Festival (WSIKF): Daily Updates – Day 6

Yep, this one’s late… Couldn’t be helped, however. After nine days on the road, the last two of ‘em getting only 4-5 hours of sleep per night, I was just plain wiped out. So there comes a time when all I can envision is a bit of food, a hot shower, followed by my pillow. […]

2006 Washington State Intl Kite Festival (WSIKF): Daily Updates – Day 5

Today was a most interesting day that started out with a 7:00 AM wake-up call. The first order of business was to reassemble a couple of Rev 1.5s so we could free up the shower curtain rod in order to get a quick shower. The Revs that flew in last evening’s night fly were so […]

2006 Washington State Intl Kite Festival (WSIKF): Daily Updates – Day 4

WOW, what a day! It all started with a 6:45 alarm, followed by the extra nice Continental Breakfast here at the Super 8 in Long Beach, WA. They put on a fine morning spread, and we all had enough to eat. Good thing too, because it got to be a l-o-n-g day at the beach […]
