  3. Hi. My name’s James. I’m from Brooklyn, NY. I’m new to flying Rev’s. Was just wondering if anybody was in my general vicinity who’d like to meet up one day and fly together? I could travel to Long Island or New Jersey... Thanks for reading this. PM me if you’d like to meet up. 🤙🏻🤙🏻🤙🏻

    B-Series VTD package (9/25/18)

    Didn't notice the lines. That's okay, I've got plenty of line sets in my bag. I knew the kite would work wonderfully in my bag. Here's hoping for the win.

    OSK CHALLENGER

    Put up my Silver Fox 2.2 UL first today in 12 or so mph winds and it handles it well. Yes I know 12 is to much for a UL but hay I’m not to smart. Lam’s Silver Fox is my sons favorite duel line kite, we both have the UL models. He didn’t want to stretch his out so he flew the Widow NG. As the wind picked up he was sitting down and was getting drug slightly. I was laughing. I then switched to the Challenger Max and it was much easier to fly and more controllable. My wife just recently started flying and was able to fly the Challenger for over an hour in winds that were in the high teens. We live on the Oregon Coast so the winds at the beach are constant not like they were in Colorado where we moved from. I also have 2 of Lams ATM kites, an UL and a Standard, witch are very similar to the Silver Fox 2.2. The production Lam kites are quality built with his tweaks and parts installed like the wing tip tension pieces. Very convenient. The high end custom Lam kites are a work of art. I don’t own any yet but have looked at several at festivals and will eventually purchase one or more starting with a vented model. The only kites I have comparable to them would be Sky Burner Delta drive or the Solus kites that I love to fly in light wind. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

  10. Last week
  11. I don't mind modifying the E2, I am not going to get rid of it anyway. I went to Prism the other day, and they punched a few holes in it for me in the area I wanted. They said to do it in the reinforced area, and do it in between the trailing edge zig zag threads. I am going to be at the beach in Newport Oregon for a few days flying next week, and Keith at The Kite Company there has the Skydog Thunderstruck, and Freebird in stock. I might buy one just to have. He thinks they would be a good choice for what I am trying to do with it also. I would like to know if it is capable of doing sharp turns and squares or not.

    Still playing with colorizer

    Definitely a good idea. I went back to the colorizer back in the day after I got my B-Pro set. I'm lucky I don't own 3 sets.

    Hello from Ontario, Canada!

    Hi, and welcome to the forum. Ontario is my favorite province. Spent lots of time in my youth west of Thunder Bay in the Shebandowan area, fishing of course, with a bit of water skiing thrown in. If you have any questions about any aspect of kiting, this forum is the right place to be. You're going to love dual-line kites and what they can do, and maybe even get into quad-lines someday. It's a journey that will make you smile.

    Welcome MineshP

    Hi everyone,We've had a great summer in Ontario this year so far - earlier in the year I rekindled my love of kites and gotten my kids into it as well. Recently got into 2 line stunt kite - been challenging so far to get more than 1 minute of flight time - we have lots of hot days, but not many breezy days to let the wings soar!Fell in love with kiting as a child back home - built my first sled kite at the age of 10, and particularly love single line deltas - we recently flew a small delta (50 incher) about 500 m (~1500ft) over Grand Bend Beach - out on Lake Huron. What a feeling to have my kids look at this kite so high, holding the reel, feeling the pull on the string....then as people pass by asking "What are you doing?" - and watching as a 7 year old says "Flying a kite...look way up - see that yellow dot in the sky?"...........the response and reactions are just amazing! Even more amazing when they look at the reel and ask, how much more string you got?.... another 500meters!Hoping to learn more about Dual line kites and explore such a simple yet humbling hobby again!

    1993 AKA Convention in Seaside

    John, Here is a link to my video files just uploaded to YouTube. This is the 1993 AKA convention. I also uploaded the files from the 1992 Northwest Regionals, and 1993 WSIKF events. I placed them in separate playlists with index in the description. Let me know if I can do anything to improve upon them. I was a novice in those days, and didn't capture everything I now wish I had. Please feel free to share the url's wherever you wish. Oh, sorry I spelled your name wrong inside one of the videos. I corrected it in the description. -See you in Long Beach next week maybe. I'll be with the blokarts and buggies. -Steve Irby

  18. Just got home from the Keystone Kiters Summer Kitebuilders Workshop. We made Mike Mosman's modified Edo. It was a great learning experience in some new techniques. Not mention I've now got a great new kite.

    Welcome CaCondor

    Definitely go and fly with them. You will accomplish in two days what would have taken two years on your own. (I'm exaggerating, but not much). If possible, have someone walk you through the entire setup and breakdown process. With a bit of instruction, you will have basic control of the kite by the end of one day. It took me 4 or 5 days on my own, and I understood flight dynamics before I started.

    50# short line lengths ?

    buy a spool and do it yourself, nobody else will ever care as much as you do! No sleeving (just another tangle point waiting to make you angry). Make a stopper knot into the single length of line FIRST, then fold the line in half (and keeping that knot centered perfectly) add a doubled overhand figure of eight knot to complete the loop. Since you are not using sleeving, there's "only shortening, NEVER untying!", so make your loop longer than normal, in case you need to make minor adjustments later for equalizing. or be lazy (like me) call Cath/Eliot and tell 'em what you're looking for, they've got a whole store full of cool accessories and kites, just needing a generous portion of your money & few minutes of their time to make it happen! There are eyes screws embedded into the fence rails and painted-off marks along their parking lot parameter, so challenge 'em with funky lengths <LOL> A QUOTE to share on the phone: "I'm painting the Sistine Chapel, .... I do NOT clean the stinkin' brushes". Ask for an explanation and hear a great tale
