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 […]

Issue 71: From the Editor

Wow, seventy-one issues… Can you believe we’ve been at it this long? Even since I took over ownership from Kitelife’s original owner Mike Gillard in 2003, we’ve done fourty four issues and a great deal has happened in the meantime, much of which can be found in our archived pages here on the site.
