    • Lots of fliers underestimate fundamental control as mere “precision” when it’s the very thing that allows you to set up your tricks reliably, consistently, in the right places in the wind window and with the right sail pressure. 🙏🏻

    • Yea the 2 is my fav.  I pull it out when the wind hits 12+ , toss on flight of the bumblebee or Bumble Boogie and have some high speed fun.
    • Don't wash the kite too often. That will put more wear on it than the dirt probably would. If you fly in or near saltwater rinse with fresh water each time. Don't use detergents until you can see that the kite is really grubby from a distance. You can use Woolite in cold water on low cycle for 10 minutes in the washer, with the frame removed, but I wouldn't unless the kite is absolutely filthy. 
    • Rinse under low pressure hose. Can be setup or brokedown. Make sure to get bridles well. Air dry. Dunk whole lineset (winder and all, no handles) in a bucket of water.  Don't scrub unless absolutely needed.
