    UK Indoor Clinic (Aug 29, 2018)

    Sorry, John, I can't get past those security pgotos to confirm I am not a robot and buy a ticket for Caroline. Have tried many times yesterday and today. I have told Caroline I have been unsuccessful, and said I would ask you if there is any other way she can book a place. Any ideas, please? Sent from my E6653 using KiteLife mobile app

    John. Caroline asked me to check if she is signed up for the indoor clinic, but her name doesn't appear here. Please can you remind me how /where we sign up so that I can add her. Thanks. Sent from my E6653 using KiteLife mobile app

    How to do a handle wrap?

    Thanks guys. Lots of good ideas for me to try. I also asked Stephen and Steve from the Flying Squad to show me the other day, and I seem to be doing better with my handle wrapping, and unwrapping, now. Plenty of chance to practise handle wraps this week during this 9 day festival at Berck, France! [emoji3] Better get back on the beach..... Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    How to do a handle wrap?

    Thanks Eric, but it is the technique for wrapping the lines around the handles (as you walk towards the kite) that I am wanting tips on, rather than wrapping the lines around a winder. Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    How to do a handle wrap?

    It's something I have only tried a handful of times, but seems very useful at more festivals when I need to set up or break down my kite quickly. Any tips for the best technique please? Which way round to hold handles whilst winding? Straight wrap or figure 8? How to lock the handles together, and secure the loose end of the lines? Plenty of chance to practise different techniques this week at Berck! [emoji3] Thanks. Sarah Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    Water flying: tips please

    Ah yes. Interesting. Occasionally I have had to look away whilst my kite flies near the sun, and there is some level of flying through feel building up with that. Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    Water flying: tips please

    Haha, the Bahamas sounds a good idea, especially if I need to swim the swim of shame to recover my kite! Will keep a look out for suitable ponds in the meantime! Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    Water flying: tips please

    "stake the kite & walk the lines parallel to the water line, pulling the kite gently (!) to the shore" Am I understanding this right? So the lines will be following the edge of the shoreline? I guess I thought I would need the lines at right angles to the shoreline to gradually walk the kite back out of the water? Confused (but everything else you said seems to make sense. Thanks!)

    Water flying: tips please

    Having flown at the beach this weekend, I am feeling the need to start flying over water.... But don't want to lose a kite to the North Sea. I have seen videos of competent fliers going over and through water, but what do I need to know to do this successfully please? Was thinking of starting on my 30 foot lines, which I love.... And hopefully I won't have to swim out to far too recover any drowned quads! [emoji32] Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app
