  2. Attach an adjustable 3-point bridle to the top two corners of the kite sail and through the sail’s center point, tying the bridle line around the three spars where they cross. The bridle lines should be relatively long. Tie your kite line to the central line of the bridle. Fly the kite, adjust the bridle, rinse and repeat!
  3. Are you on Facebook? I just posted this: If not, I'll try to create a PDF file for you.
  4. Even the best songs and the loveliest poetry can't fix erratic winds, and even the steady winds on the beaches sometimes give in to lulls! On light wind days, all you can do match your single-line kites to the conditions. Choose kites with greater sail-to-weight ratios, and adjust bridles toward the kites' tails for the greater resistance. I often fly soft kites or the cheapest Chinese sparred kites on such days, but my last resort are my four Laimas— almost no-wind kites— but even they will glide to ground in a lull. Here is a tip you might consider for the occasionally errant kit
  5. I fly mine on Texas Gulf Coast beaches and it's a breeze! [emoji6] I generally fly on 300-lb line, and then 500-lb in strong winds, but I have multiple winders of both. I never fly over 300'— I only put 330' on the winders. The Premier insert (http://instructions.premierkites.com/33050i_13ftFloTail_instructions_REV_9-22-15.pdf) actually says "250–500 lb test line," but that's a range recommended for a range of conditions. Don't worry, even in low winds, a 500-lb line is no weight or drag for this huge kite! I get my line in bulk from Goodwinds. https://goodwinds.com/line-winders/braided
  6. Sorry, guys, it's my first rodeo! I didn't know that I was supposed to run the RNG until John filled me in. Thank you all for for your understanding and kool karma! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  7. Here is your RNG sequence: 4 Mike Klaiber, you are our winner! Congratulations! 3 5 1 2 6 Timestamp: 2017-07-15 05:02:51 UTC Thanks all for your patience and understanding! Thanks for playing! Thanks for supporting KiteLife! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  8. HEADS UP: I won’t make the Post Office today. (We still don’t have a winner.) So, I’ll probably mail this on Monday. Patience, Grasshoppers.
  9. Great! Everybody’s chance is now 16 2/3%!
  10. RNG! RNG! Hello? Is it time to make the call? Well, yes, if you want me to try to get this in the mail today. After all, I gotta contact the winner, get their bridle preference, pack it up, and still make the Post Office before closing (at the worst time of day for both traffic and lines). OK, quit your whining. Ill be waiting, that is if you West Coasters are finished with your lunch…
  11. In under the wire! You have a 20% chance to win! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  12. Only one more day! I guess all you SLKers are waiting to the last minute— but this ain't eBay and eSniping won't do you any good, so jump "in"! If my RNG buddy draws your number early and you let me know your info and bridle preference, I'll have it in the mail tomorrow! Keep the karma kool! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  13. Six days to go! The next kiter "in" would have a 20% chance of having this kite in the mail next week! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  14. New Tech 6.5-ft Cascade Delta - Summer Colors SKU: 50350 Sail: Ripstop Nylon Frame: Fiberglass Size: W 78" x 180" / 198 x 457cm Wind Range: 5-20mph Flying Line: 50# Line Included* Tail: Wide Streamers I love this kite! Put the spreader in, attach the line, and let her soar! This keelless delta will fly nearly overhead, but won't overfly due to it’s three long flo-tails. Once overhead, this kite does not pull hard, and you can hand it to your three-year-old. No longer made by New Tech. (Probably now only available from Kite Guys.) Never flown! You can have this kite one o
