  1. I just put this up for sale. I'm selling this bat kite because I purchased a custom Rev Series B. Everything is there to fly the quad line bat kite... instructions, carrying bag, skyshark carbon fiber, handles, and lines. http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/232124960438?
  2. Rain, rain go away but leave the breeze for today... So it wasn't the rain that sent me to roll up my lines today, it was the massive roll of thunder that announced the predicted change from grey and gusty to thunderstorms that was the nudge I needed. However, before I gave in I found myself contemplating "if the sail gets wet, it must get heavier. I wonder how much the wind range is impacted by the sail being wet?" Anyone got advice on how many more mph of windspeed is needed to keep a sail up when it goes from dry to wet? Just curious, the wind I get is frequently light enough that I am struggling to stay aloft - making skill building hard. Wondering if staying out in the (non-thunderstorm) showers is worth trying out or if borderline wind + wet wieght= no flight for me. Also, is there a secret "bring on the wind but not the rain/thunder" ritual or dance that I can learn? Don't get me wrong, I ain't complaining - I got a full 10 minutes with my full vent sail the other day before switching back to the standard. Not bad for an inland field round here.

  4. So recently I aquired a set of Shanti Skybond 100'x100# quads. I told myself in the beginning...I would fly both major makers and form my own views on what I liked. So no better time than now! I have flown a full year or so with LPG, different weights and lengths..so time for a change. I have about 50 hours or so on this Skybond set. I have to say that I am liking them. After flying opk with Skybond lines, my interest peaked even more... good timing as I am in need of all lenghts and weights again. My initial thoughts were super slippery. The coating used is great so far. A little color fade...but the set has been in the ocean completely for many hours...I swim and fly or float and fly. .hit sandbars...etc... I hope in the long term...this coating holds up, I dig it. Almost has waterproof properties when wet...sheds water very quick. On the plus side....no clumped up sandy lines when winding up Smaller diameter line compared to Lpg..which equated to less drag and a more direct feeling between me and the kite...almost like running a lighter weight line. I am tickled "yellow" so far and looking for the long term picture as I begin the switch..... I only have 1 gripe with LPG in the end...longevity. I have been wearing out sets at alarming rates...even with regular rotation.up and down..and switching ends. So we will see what transpires from a change this year... What do you fly and why? If you fly Skybond already.... what's your comparison to LPG?
  5. Sorry to ask this question,.. where's the best place to unload a couple of great kites that I don't even carry anymore? Race frames on both, french bridle on 1 and the 1point6 bridle on the other (they were used with four kite comparison testing sessions), magic sticks on both, SUL leading edge sleeves, some wear, but no sail damage of any kind. They have been greatly loved and cared for, now someone else needs a turn. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10200814036865492&set=t.1079141123&type=3&theater
  6. For the first time in a long while...things felt good. So here is some of it before i head out for todays session..with some funky boobtube tune. No Barresi or Underwood stuff here....but sure felt good to get back in the swing of things. Stella!:
  7. I had to make some repairs to my old full vent this evening. While I was at it...I went ahead and made another mod Mr. Paul Lamasters and Mr. Paul Dugard had mentioned several times before. To start..I added extra "tabs" at the folding points and the center bridle point in the l.e..... I will load some pics later. This gives you 7 tab attachment points in between the l.e. and the actual sail.This is well worth it in my opinion. Prolonges overall life of the kite and the l.e. mesh. The next mod..bungee covers on the lower verticals. I dig this one...and super simple. I used whatever material i had available. Just so happened to be a variety of webbed strapping. Sort of heavy...but all in the name of learning and old sails. I would definitely use a l.e. type material for these mods. These mentioned items will be done to all my new sails........ What do you do to trick your ride?
  8. Once again this year...I was fortunate enough to spend several days in Treasure Island for the 18th Annual Sport Kite Competition. This was my third year in attendance. Nice weather saw fair winds and large crowds.Sunday brought some of the largest spectator crowds I have seen. Unfortunately,I was flying line all day and unable to KAP.....never thought I would say that was an issue Saturday however, I did manage to put the camera up and do a 1500 picture run throughout the area and competition/demo field. I have had the opportunity to review and crop out 50 or so pictures and uploaded them here for your viewing pleasure https://flic.kr/s/aHsk7haVfu

    Rev GoPro

    Has anyone found a good way of attaching a GoPro to a rev?
  11. I am selling my 2005 Synergy Zero Wind Great Deca Indoor Quad Kite. It has never been flown and is in perfect new condition. It is my understanding that Guildworks is either no longer making these or at the least it is very difficult to get one. When I purchased mine back in 2005, I had to wait over six months for delivery. I am taking offers at this time. Look for my other listings on this site for a Synergy Deca 15 (new condition, test flown twice, and same year), as well as these other kites that are also in new condition. I have a Benson Airbow quad kite, a Revolution Indoor quad kite, a White Bird Firebird single line kite and a White Bird dragon single line kite.
  12. I am selling my 2003 Benson Signature Series Quad Kite signed by Andy Wardley and Tim Benson. It is number 10 of 10. It has been flown twice always on grass and only to test it out. There are no rips, tears or discolorations. Even the bridal is in new perfectly clean condition. It is my understanding that the Benson Airbow is no longer in production. I am taking offers at this time. Look for my other listings on this site for a Synergy Deca 15 (same condition, 2005), a Synergy Zero Wind Great Deca (never flown, in perfect new condition, 2005), a Revolution Indoor quad kite never flown, in perfect conditon, a White Bird Firebird single line kite and a White Bird dragon single line kite.
