    • It's a fast hard POP with the brake line towards and slightly beyond your thigh. When first trying to learn it, it is easiest to do the axel from a Samurai slide in light to medium wind. Remember to practice both directions. It's more difficult with your non-dominant hand. You want to POP the end of the kite that is closer to the ground and immediately give the other complete slack. Later, you will be able to try different directions of entry.
    • Just out of interest which one's do you like ?
    • Once you gain some experience you begin to realize that kites are like everything else. You start with a Chevy Cavalier and it flies and you learn to fly it, but you notice it doesn't perform as well as others. So you trade it in and get a used Mercedes. You can see the difference immediately, but the Corvettes and Ferraris are all still leaving you in their dust.  The reality is that it takes more labor, better materials and better design to build a Ferrari than a Cavalier, and building them one at a time costs more than mass production. You can buy used to keep the price as low as possible, but a used Ferrari is almost always going to cost more than a "brand-spankin'-new" Cavalier. Of course, you can try to build the Ferrari yourself. I'm not being a wise-ass here, just saying that you get what you pay for, and this is especially true with kites. Spend as much as won't break your budget. You won't regret it. Also, the kites I like you will probably hate. You may like them later, but right now you'll hate them. In the end, the best recommendation I can give you is to take your time with acquisition and fly as many "other people's kites" (OPK's) as possible to see which ones talk to you.
    • Of course, we're turning kite flying into rocket science here. If you just fly the kite often enough all these things will come to you naturally with time without realizing that it has happened. Sometimes it's better to just fly without trying to wrap your brain around what you are doing.
    • You definitely should try it Bill.   Getting any sewing machine and just practicing is really what is needed.   If you know basic sewing, that's the biggest skill you have to bring to the workshop.
