  1. BMK (and Aerie) kites rule....for me and my old school style....end of story... Yeah they can do all the tricks but there is something about that "Blue Moon feeling" that who cares about flippy flopping.....they want to FLY!!! I have by Aerie....a K2, a K3, 3 AirFX`s (2 standard`s/1 vented). My all time fav is the Air FX.... By BMK a Mojo ul, Mamba, Mongoose, and Mantis....all standards. Given this...some BMK/Aerie standards can go into UL territory no problemo. However my Mongoose, Mantis, K2, and obviously the vented FX being the exceptions as they like a little more wind....the ones you folks have...lol... Have fun!!! bt
  2. I have a few Revs I will be parting with real soon......however they will not include lines or handles. I'm in transit so I can PM you later when I get home....waiting for a ferry at present..... bt ps.....forgot this part....I haven't posted or sold very much from this site but have bought and sold many kites through the GWTW forum over the years......
  3. When I lived in Vancouver many years ago there were a bunch of us flying at Vanier Park and one Mr Ray Bethell would put on "shows" all day long to cheering crowds. I'm certainly no Ray Bethell and I don't live in the city anymore and also kiting was in it's '90's heyday.....ya had to be there. Now I live outside the city right across the street from a great beach at low tide and personally I could care less about what the general public thinks about my kiting as it is my "alone time", which is precious to me. Sure there are a good number of folks who take pix and I've met some wonderful people while flying which is way cool....but I don't fly kites to put on a show or engage folks. It is quite nice to explain to what is happening with the kite(s) and why I bring a number of kites to the beach. I also go as far away as possible from the crowds more for safety reasons than anything else.....the walking on a huge open beach directly towards a moving kite constantly astounds me. I am also very lucky in that I can use kiting as part of my work which is a musician. I can listen to and learn music that has to be performed or mixes of things that have been recorded. So in that case I generally don't like to be bothered however will engage if approached.....ya never know when someone will actually "get" kite flying and get one or three for themselves. bt
  4. If you have the kiting bug big time....ask the same question in a year from now and you'll have probably answered your question by counting your kites. Not to mention how many line sets you have..... bt

    Weather

    Yup that's what happens... The other is when the kite arrives, the conditions are perfect and you have something else that gets in the way of flying......and then when you have the time...the weather says nope..... Both of these scenarios happened within a couple of days about a week and a half ago when the weather was flip flopping.....raining now as well....go figure. Like the old ketchup commercial.....anticipation..... bt
  6. Yes they sure are amazing kites crafted by an amazing kite maker. I'm an Aerie/BMK fellow for sure. Well "if" I ever decide to let one go I'll send a note to you....there ya go folks first dibs go to Paul..... Or do as I did and use the power of will as that's how I acquired the vented and the white sailed one(s)......both in the last year.... Actually for the vented I was doing research on Air fx venting and came across a couple of pix and realized the venting was pretty daunting. Besides it's a KMac sail. No offence to Revs but I've self vented a couple of those....a Sedg 1 and a single panel 2, with most excellent results...... bt
  7. Finally it got nice enough to go outside and take a few pix. Just took possession of a vented Aerie Air FX which matches a standard, plus another makes three. btw for the trio pix I did not install the winglet battens..... bt
  8. Was doing some poking around for info on AirFX vented's......came across this!!! I have two standard FX's and one is just like this one.....message has been sent. bt
