  1. Congrats! [emoji1303][emoji1305] Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  2. I've got the Trick or Treat DVD Tim did quite a while ago. It is cool to put on as both watching it intently or as background. The music is pretty good too. Some very good freestyle flying in it. One of the best pure kite DVDs going still. Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  3. When down the beach, I mostly fly 30's for keeping within a smaller space. To stake out I just point the handle tops upwind and push the bottoms into the sand. Unless it's a bit breezy, then I'll use a stake. Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  4. The beast is back!!!! Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  5. Hell yeah. Umm, do we still taunt the RNG or has it gone to sleep...? Wake RNG!!! Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  6. I found some stainless steel rod that fitted inside some spare APA wing tensioners. Think it was 4mm. Shaved them to 5 grams and tried that in my Temptation Std. A little funky but a lot of fun. Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  7. Flew a 4D on 20's once and thought it was alright. Good bit of kit. I found it a little twitchy with any more than a puff of wind. Not uncontrolled but bordering a little unstable. I had the chance to buy one second hand at a great price but never wanted to. I HAVE a Kaiju and much prefer the style. I do prefer 7-10 feet lines but have used up to 30's. It doesn't ever feel unstable like the 4D did to me. It is a real gas to fly and never fails to do what I want it to do. Bought it new from the Kite Forge release and keep it in the "everywhere" bag.

  8. That's beach sand. Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  9. Wasn't a custom but I would've made this exact design if it hadn't been a choice. Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  10. SUL I'm using #50 x 100 feet. UL #90 X 100 feet. These are for my Sevens. I need to get a #150 or #250 set for my Vented. I've kind of adopted 100 feet as the standard length for them. Like 120 is for quads. But. That's if I'm working on figures or tricking. If I'm just flying for expression then #90 x 50 feet. Or 30 feet if I don't have much room.

  11. A non rev like quad. Q flaps on a dual line count? Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  12. I think this is very cool. I think magic sticks could also come under the "lot of work for a little..". Good on you for applying a great design feature retrospectively to a common kite. The LE T on my Djinn is one of my favorite innovations. Cleans up the kite framework considerably. Might give this one a crack myself! Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  13. B series is 7 and a half feet. Effective spar length is 30 inches each. Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
  14. Glue to the centre spar. A 1.5 frame set has 4+1. The verticals are interchangeable with the outer of the leading edge. Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app

    Closest to kiting I've been in a while... They love a side slide but an axel not so much! Sent from my SM-G970F using KiteLife mobile app
