  2. I don’t get to the beach very often but when I do i want every hour I can and it always pays off. This time it’s the monkey bars maneuver. After years of wanting to get this move, it finally clicked. Anyways here is the last 10 minutes of me enjoying a heavenly breeze on a beautiful morning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Welcome to the forum sir. As Riff says above if you’re able, make a trip to fly with others before you invest in a new kite. Although I got a lot of hours out of my first kite and it served its purpose well, I don’t even put it in my bag anymore. I flew alone for the first 5 months and that kite took a hell of a beating. However as soon as I started to meet up with experienced flyers I quickly realized that I need something of better quality. The biggest factor of meeting up with folks is the learning curve. I learned more about all things pertaining to flying a quad in that first day with the kite club than I had learned on my own in 5-6 months. Hand /wrist movements. Handle settings. Line management. Sail loading. Feet/leg positioning. Things to practice. Just a few things that experienced flyers told me about that I had not ever thought of. That knowledge and being able to try their kites is priceless. Best of luck and Keep in touch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I don’t use sleeving. I color the ends of the loops I make with a bit of red marker to indicate the right lines and inch of black marker for the bottom lines. R for red and right. B for black and bottom. Also add a small loop on the ends to make it easier to undo the larks head knot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’ve only ever used iMovie to edit videos. In the last few years mostly on the iPhone. It’s small but very simple and user friendly. Plus I can easily transfer GoPro footage from the se card directly into my photos app Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks Tiwi. I’m using the DJI Spark for the aerial shots and a GoPro Sessions mounted on my chest for the ground shots, both in 1080p. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Between hard ground in the winter and leaving behind many stakes on the field I decided to get magic sticks for the rest of my kites. I used them on my first rev and should’ve done it for the rest of them all along. The ability to just drop the handles and leave the kite with no worries is well worth it for me.

    In this particular post no. I’ve always loved how direct sunlight or the lack there of affects the colors. Even on sunny days when big puffy clouds roll over the flying field it can look one way and change as I glide across the field in and out of the clouds shadow. Even the black panels can look almost deep blueish (is that a color) with the right light. However, with wind range, I tend to pull this out as soon as my Polo UL starts making noises and with a bit of tweaking at the leaders the more vented kites don’t come out till it starts to really pull. so yes a 2fer in both instances.

    On any given hour on the field or day even, I feel like I got 2 kites in one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
