Video Kite Tutorials (free and premium)

One of our ongoing projects is the creation of essential video sport kite tutorials that appeal to both beginners and hard core fliers on dual or quad line kites – over twenty five years of experience go into our videos… The tutorials are casual in nature but very detailed, working through basic to master techniques so that viewers can learn and improve their kite flying at a comfortable, yet efficient speed.

Most of our outdoor tutorials are picture-in-picture (PIP), showing both kite and hands at work – while we do favor certain kite models, these tutorials will translate to most any other comparable kite(s).

Roughly HALF of our kite tutorials (focused on basic beginner and intermediate competency) are free to view on YouTube, only the advanced content is limited to paid subscribers.

Subscriptions

While we’re passionate about creating tutorials such as these, it takes a significant amount of time and effort to plan the narration, find good venues for video, do repetitive filming, video editing, uploading and organizing… We work to make the essential (beginner) tutorials available to anyone free of charge, but restrict intermediate and advanced tutorial access to our official KiteLife subscribers.

We wouldn’t be able to continue without the support of our loyal Subscribers… If you find our services, archives and mission valuable to yourself and the kiting community, please consider signing up today. It may not seem like much, but every subscriber makes a tremendous difference!

Future Tutorials

As of this writing, we still have over 75 more topics on the “to do” list for new tutorials, both dual and quad line, indoors and out… For us, it’s just a matter of time and having reasonable conditions in which to film and illustrate the various skills.

If you’d like to be notified of new kite tutorials, be sure to connect with us through our email list, Facebook or Twitter… In the meantime, if you enjoy the resources here at Kitelife, we heartily encourage you to become an official subscriber – we couldn’t do all of this without the support of folks like yourself.
