  1. Welcome back. unfortunately kiting has declined since the 90's. Manufacturers aren't as numerous, especially in the US. Definitely check out Lam Hoac's kites. He enjoys conversation and is very helpful. I also like my LumoKites by Antonis Loumiotis A lot of top flyers are making and flying kites based on open source plans http://www.kareloh.com/kite-plans I've been told that Krijn Hemminga can make a lot of the open source sails and you just add the hardware. Check out Virtual Freestyle for some great trick performances and to see what kites top flyers are competing with http://vf.kiteclique.com/
  2. This Vega UL is a really good deal from a respected maker
  3. The Silver Fox 2.2 is an excellent kite for the money. It's available at the Kite Shoppe
  4. Who's the manufacturer/maker of this kite?
  5. Thank you so much for the history of these kites. When I received them, there definitely was a mental question about why two sets of the exact same kites. Now I know. That's a great picture! Thank you for sharing. Eric
  6. Thanks Barry. Did you ever stack them while you owned them? I found that I enjoyed it more than flying a single Synergy Deca. They become more stable and even more floaty. Thank you again for selling me these kites. My next attempt will probably be a 3 stack of Minergys Eric
  7. Stacked my two Synergy Deca Zero Winds. I really liked their floaty behavior.
  8. I'll be there with James in the early afternoon on Saturday.
  9. Here's the same Minergy Deca Zero Wind stack being flown indoors. Much more difficult.
  10. I put two of the Minergy Deca Zero Wind kites in a stack and flew them outside. Hope to try fly the stack indoors next.
  11. Thanks again Barry. I just received everything I believe I need to repair the others. So hopefully I'll have quite a few more to fly soon
  12. I decided to take the Minergy Zero Wind outside. Here is a short video of me flying the little kite Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  13. Here's a short video from my second time flying the Minergy Deca Zero Wind. Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  14. Nice videos from Cirque du Soleil. I'll have to put together a video once I get some more time on the lines. Haven't seen anything smaller than Zero Wind Great Decas in these videos, so I could add to the community some with those kites. This is the most impressive video I've found so far. Plus I enjoy his dual line style too.
  15. Thanks Paul, I did find one video from last year. He does do a lot of one handed flying. It also seems to be a trend that people are flying Great Decas. Which I do not own currently. Just normal sized Synergy Decas and Minergys Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  16. My search really didn't come up with much. I know they have used Decas in performances but can't find the videos Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  17. I've acquired some Decas recently. Both Synergy and Minergy Zero Wind Decas. I'm working on basic indoor flying with them and they are quite different from indoor rev kites. I haven't found many videos and I was wondering where the best source of learning might be. Thanks, Eric
  18. BTW John, I took my Focus Kite Designs - Hydra out the other day. Man that kite backspins so easy and beautifully. No wonder you enjoyed flying it last year when we were together. Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  19. I really like my UL as well. It's not as refined as the AC SUL, however it's a fantastic value. I like to practice yo-yo tricks with it. It's turtle is so deep it will easily flip into a yo-yo with slack lines. Just throw your hands out and wait for the kite to flip around the lines and take up the slack. No real setup moves needed like most kites Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  20. If you'd like to try a Lam kind of kite and don't want to spend as much money as an AC SUL. Try the Silver Fox Second Generation SUL by Flying Wings. Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
