    • I recently came across these straps and thought it was interesting usage, makes sense to me anyways...I find I usually need to use the straps around my wrists because of the pull, but odd time will have it slip off around my wrist/thumb. Will try the finger grip methods and see how that feels.

    • Hey bt, pleased to make your acquaintance. Vanier park is where I've doing all my flying up until the last time when Jewel fall down go boom. That time I spent the extra 15 minutes to get down to Jericho beach. Honestly (and maybe it was just the weather its self), even though the winds were more.. erratic(?) there, I think it's probably going to be my new spot. Probably more likely to meet other flyers at Vanier, but it's been pretty sparse so far and, frankly, I'm tired of swathing through metric tons of goose sh*t. Plus Jericho is just.. nicer.   Had a chat with someone at Kites and Puppets the other day over the phone looking for a 4mm carbon rod. He didn't sound like a Sally though. I'll have to make it out there in person sometime. Haven't been since I was wee tiny. I'm actually a transplant from Victoria. Makes me miss Clover Point, if you've ever been there. Pretty tough to beat that spot. As for Garry Point, I haven't made it down there yet. I'm a slave to public transportation, and it's starting to get to be a bit of a pilgrimage to make it out that far. On the other hand, it does seem like the flying conditions there are pretty good and if there are kite people hanging around too then that would be cool. Are you northish or southish of Sechelt? I spent a couple months hanging around Robert's Creek a few years back. Pretty gorgeous out there...
    • Yes the winds have been pretty stupid over the last 5 daze or so here on the west coast....no wonder your kite broke...;) I’m close by......Sunshine Coast....and started flying mid ‘90’s in Vanier....when I was in the city. Two things to check out in Van......go see Sally at her shop on Granville Island....yay a physical kite shop of sorts. She is waaay kewl!!!!! The other is where are you and where did/do you fly? Dunno if anyone flys at Vanier these daze. Apparently Garry Point park in Steveston is the place folks who share our love of kites congregate. That lot should be good source of info et al....... I live across the street from the beach on the SC...see the indoor Tsuru pic on site page and some vidz below.....and rarely go into the city. bt BeaTee Riddims Go fly a kite.... https://www.youtube.com/@aleatorasounds4033
    • I pretty much fly for fun and don't really worry too much about the lines.  My current go to set I made in 2002, flew it a lot back then, and then started using it again about 3 years ago.  Five years sound kind of young 😉
