  1. Hi Rob

    Not quite sure how to 'post' but here goes :-)

    Got my first 'real' dual line stunt kite for Christmas!  It's a Maelstrom by Kevin Sanders... nothing like a genuine Aussie Yeah!

    Had my first flight on Boxing Day in a very gusty Southerly - see short video taken by my wife Jan on her phone.  I was stoked that she also had some good fun watching me and helping set up to launch.

      Thank you - you just answered my question (if videos can be directly attached and not only via a video site) in http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/7657-video-help/#comment-61926 ! It also seems like that the 3MB limit is raised to 5MB (allowing for longer videos) when becoming a member (as well as storage area). Good luck with your future kiting!

      That's awesome!

      Nice kite btw. I really like those colours. I have 4 of Kevin's kites.

      2 Temptation's, Std and UL dual line freestyle. A 6 foot rokkaku and a 3 meter delta. He's a class act. Very giving of time and information. 


      Yes the wind wind over Christmas time was quite gusty, I got limited flying done but it was with the kids so that was good. 


      Definitely have to organise a meet and fly day. There is getting to be a few Perthites with kites now. On our way to "start a festival"...

  5. Hey Rob
    Just wondering if you went ahead and bought the Skydog 'Dream On' kite you mentioned in a previous post?
     If so, are you happy with it?  I'm currently looking at what to buy next - do you have an update?

      I ended up getting a Skydog Jammin instead. More a freestyle kite than the Dream On. Still going to get one as the sail is just glorious! Very happy with the Jammin. As its a bit cheaper than my boutique kites I tend to throw it around more. Even fly in car parks with it. 

  6. Hi Rob
    Where's the kite fest you're going to at the end of August ?

  7. Hi Rob You look like a seasoned kite guy :-) Whereabouts are you in Perth?
  8. Correction... That reference should have been Tim Parish of my-best-kite.com Apologies Tim
  9. Thanks JohnI've only just started exploring the world of kiting so I'm a real novice.Recently made a delta, a diamond and a soft sled kite using plans by Tim Frazer of My Best Kite here in Australia.Looking forward to learning more... and keeping an 'eye on the sky' for good winds!
