  1. Work and life can be too good at keeping me from kiting! I've gotten out a bit but the wind hasn't been obliging when I do. I finally got a chance today to practice in good wind with my BF (Cyberc0ms, Brennen). First I worked on slides as there had been some great chat about them here on the forum and I wanted to think hard about what I'm doing while on the field. The first 3min of this video are slides done all the ways I can currently figure out how to. After that I got into some axle practice! Last time I went out we all agreed I wasn't giving enough slick after the tug. This time things really started to click! Not quite totally there but wow is it fun to feel that little bounce before the kite starts to spin! Here is a slow-mo video of both. Axle practice starts at 3:15ish. Edit: Here is the real-time footage of this session, edited to maximize flight time but nothing else. it is long and more for me to review my progress than for anyone else but why not include it Finally, I got to take out the unknown black Shanti kite that my parents grabbed off Craigslist (along with an Allegro). I have some footage of flying it that I'll post here tonight or tomorrow! Edit: I took it up! The wind was 8-10 knots(ish) and the kite buzzed like mad. I didn't play much with it as I don't want to break it in too much wind, I'll take it out again in something lighter. It looks great up there though and I like the way it handles
