  1. That little bit of slack is normal... at least it is on all of mine. Try pulling the nose forward just a bit. so it doesn't hang perfectly flat like you mentioned. It is a sensitive kite, but this *should* help.
  2. exactly! and it should fly equally as well in 7-10 deer farts! My first guess is that the bridle is tucked under the t-fitting or something as obvious as caught at the tail piece. It really shouldnt be acting like that. Maybe the nose tipped back too far? hmmm.
  3. hey no problem! John, You've got some airtime on a Desire UL too dont you? Something isn't quite right with upnet's...
  4. Something is wrong. Check that bridle closely... the Desire UL is generally a smooth kite, not too squirrily... I mostly use mine in very light wind but even up to 7mph it should be stable...
  5. Yes, this is huge. What a loss for the kiting world.
  6. Thank you! ...as do I to yours! Sadly, we wont be there. Too many conflicts this year and it's bummin' me out!
  7. ... and we were planning to be there... but the gas prices! oh the gas prices!
  8. Hey Steve!! great to see you here. I cant wait to see the vids. anything new?
  9. Your bad Carl. Oregon and WA are great. Ocean, mountains and desert in WA. Walport, OR (sp) is a great place for power kiting. It rains in WA, but wait 5 minutes and that will change. BB Penny Yes you're right Penny, I am bad! And you raise a good point, so I stand corrected. Although Oregon is full, Washington still has some room!
  10. I dont know if this happened to anyone else, but when I clicked that link my browser opened up in a million new tabs! they kept going and going and going... had to crash out. I gotta say... I am a wee leetle bit leery of looking again. has this happened to anyone else?
  11. I also have 2 Hawaiian Team kites that I could possibly part with. They are presently set-up for a 2 stack and the individual bridles are around someplace These have not been flown for many years, and have been in safe clean storage. From what I remember they are black with warm scheme chevrons at the trailing edges. Conditon GREAT! no rips, tears, or fading -at last look. I'll listen to offers. Photos available soon.
  12. hmmm I have one. They ARE nice! Sure wouldnt mind another though!
