    What's up from Saudi Arabia!

    I have three New Tech Spirit quads. I really like them and enjoy them as a change of pace. My red-white-blue comes out every patriotic holiday fly. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    B-Series STD Package (11/15/18)

    Apparently everyone including me forgot about this drawing. It's been too quiet. Are all the hecklers gone? None of us "old-timers" left? Sad. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    Hi, newbie from NC checking in

    Hello, Mike. I'm on the Crystal Coast of NC. Hopefully you can make it down to our beaches sometime and we can get the chance to fly together. Karen

    And The Wind Blows Again

    Just like the Carolina Kite Festival this past weekend, the winds were high for the weekly community kite fly. But I did get to fly my new Peter Lynn Kite Show during the week. And The Wind Blows Again

    The 31st Carolina Kite Festival

    This past weekend was the 31st Carolina Kite Festival at the Sands Villa Resort in Atlantic Beach, NC. We had no idea how this one would be attended as Hurricane Florence hit us hard and many people are out of work and out of their homes. Also, many of the hotels and condo units were damaged which made accommodations in the area harder to find. But it didn't deter most of our regular out-of-town flyers. The 31st Carolina Kite Festival

    A Hectic Week

    The community kite fly this past weekend was canceled due to too much wind. But my week only got busier. A Hectic Week

    Finding Time To Fly

    I really hated missing the community kite fly. I also hated the thought of not doing any kite flying at all. Finding Time To Fly
  8. A beautiful day and some time away from the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. It was the first kite fly of autumn. A Beautiful Day And Some Time Away

    Missing A Good Day

    Fort Macon State Park is open. Although the fort itself is closed because of damage from Hurricane Florence. The early report concerning the weekly community kite fly was encouraging but we couldn't verify the information because we weren't there. Missing A Good Day

    Wind

    For most of the summer we would have great winds all week. But the time for our weekly community fly and we end up standing in the parking lot looking at the flag on the flagpole hanging limply. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    After The Storm

    After spending the week cleaning and removing debris, I was looking forward to a community kite fly as a means to get away from it all. Unfortunately, Fort Macon State Park is closed. For how long, we have no idea. They are doing damage assessment and repair and have to see how much beach remains after the storm. After The Storm

    All I Wanted To Do Was Fly

    The community kite fly day has come and gone. An unwanted guest showed up and caused a cancellation. The guest's name -- FLORENCE. Hurricane Florence brought two days of high winds and three days of rain. And evacuations and curfews which kept us from the beach. All I Wanted To Do Was Fly

    I Hadn't Realized

    Things in life distracted me and I hadn't realized that it has been two years since I wrote anything. To those who were following me, I sincerely apologize. The good news is we haven't stopped flying our kites. I Hadn't Realized

    help buying first kite for me and my son

    I have to agree. You're overthinking. My first foul was a Symphony 1.8. I don't care for a lot of pull (some is fun) and the 1.8 was the ideal for me. I flew mine with a streamer tail for looks. I have now attached an Eel banner instead and it looks like the eel is chasing the kite across the sky. I also have the 1.4 which is smaller and quicker. My husband has the 2.2 for the greater pull (which our son-in-law loves). Kites Unlimited in Atlantic Beach carries a variety of tails and kites. They also have a foil by Skydog Kites that is very similar to the Symphony line. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    Trilby bridle details; anyone remember?

    I have several stacks of Trlbys I can take photos of. However, it will have to wait until the Hurricane passes. I'm kind of pre-occupied now.
