  1. Thank you for the replies. I appreciate the tips. I just recently moved and coincidentally near my old middle school from years ago. The football fields there turn out to be an excellent location with very minimal obstructions and pretty consistent direction when the wind is blowing. And the best part is its only a half mile away! I agree the coastal breeze is unbeatable. I'm looking forward to the lincoln city kite festival coming up the 1st of October. I may go over for the whole weekend if the weather is right. I'm interested in Delta Park near PDX... is the wind there pretty consistent? I looking to find areas around portland metro and suburbs (I live in Beaverton) that tend to be windy. I know it's mother nature and she's unpredictable, but are there areas that geographically around here that tend to be more windy similar to the gorge? Thanks all. This site has been a great find (well, found because John Barresi recommended it). Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using KiteLife mobile app

    I made the same mistake with the vertical rods because I was too excited to fly the kite before watching the instructional video. I couldn't fly the thing worth a damn (low wind too). Then I saw the assembly instructions on the video and had a duh moment. Much better now. And once I had about 10 mph winds I was able to fly the Rev. The higher winds made a huge difference in learning the behavior of the kite. Now I can fly in lower winds without issue. Love the Rev! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using KiteLife mobile app
  3. I am looking for areas to fly near Tigard/Portland rather driving to the beach. Any suggestions? Any areas with regular winds? Thanks for the help. Tim Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using KiteLife mobile app
