    •  as a slight counterpoint, please know that in the kiting world, there are no nobodies. EVERYONE brings something to the table and we all learn from each other every time we fly. Even a new perspective from a fresh face in the kiting world can change the way you look at a trick or even a specific type of kite. Even the well known kiters learn every day from the most unexpected places. Personally, I'm still kicking myself for not making it up to OC on Saturday to at least fly a little bit. would have been great to reconnect with friends for a few hours..
    • I’ll tell you hands down the nicest group of people I have ever had the privilege to meet, and even fly with is the group of Quad flyers at this years WSIKF. I’m a nobody in the kiting world but they all took me under their wing and helped me, my son and even got my wife Jenna flying a quad during the week. Too many names to list and my memory sucks literally. If you get the chance to go to any kiting event don’t be shy. And John is hands down one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He’s willing to share his love of kiting with anyone.     Sent from my IPhone    
    • Hi all, I am looking for some info in a kite i was recently given. The label says its a Top of the Line Hawaiian spin off.  I am from the UK and can find any information about the kite. Can any one tell me the ideal flying conditions as its a bit bigger and  heavier than the ones I am used too!! Many thanks
    • Great question.. This is one area of the throw and catch that I didn't feel worked for me.. @Paul LaMasters has done quite a bit of flying with that aspect of this trick and will hopefully share some of his experiences here.  I know from my brief experience with the Reflex, it was a matter of once you got the kite slack on the lines and gliding, you moved downwind to meet the kite. Unlike the typical catch, this was more like a walk to a meeting instead of a dash to a catch. The throw is generally the same but you have to work heavily on your throwing speed to keep the kite from rising and stalling out on you. Coincidentally John's B2 Launch video was the first time I saw the catch and throw.. I bought a Rev soon after I saw it just to learn that one trick.. I was already flying my Symphony conversion at the time..
    • Thanks for the explanation  Now I have something to work on    You say it's also possible with the reflex springs. Do you have any more info on how to do this?
