What are you focusing on now? Which exercises or figures are you returning to? What is learned from them? A post of yours regarding a certain exercise might include (baked in) answers to a few of these questions: What are you working on now/recently? What did you learn and how did you do it? What do you think your hands/body were doing (if you were successful)? Why is it a good exercise for you? What was the feeling? Come on don’t be shy – even the silliest comparison/analogy/image might talk to someone. What were the necessary steps/skills/realizations before this exercise? What kite and line length do you prefer to use for the drill? What are the most favourable conditions to start out doing the exercise? Are there any other exercises or context in any form of kiting where your recently gained wisdoms are applicable to, like medium wind kiting with longer lines or perhaps kiting with another number of lines? If you didn’t post the exercise, but instead tried to follow the advice given, how did it go, are there any remaining question marks? Can something be described in another way? Perhaps you want to repeat an exercise suggestion, but in your way? It is fine to return to this topic if you realize something more about a drill/exercise half a year later or so, whether you originally posted the suggested exercise or not. 1, 2 or 4 lines are all fine, but consider to clarify if not obvious. Typically used line length? Without knowing it, you might be holding a piece of somebody's puzzle or provide an exercise that unlocks another ability for someone. Expressing something for someone else clarifies it for yourself as well. Sing it out!!
I've been doing a fair bit of urban/street kiting on my Revs recently and I thought I might be able to share some tips. Feel free to chime in with what works for you. Pick your area. Clean air isn't important, in fact it adds an element of excitement. Cars and people MUST be considered, law suits can eat up future kite purchases. Consider street lights if going out at night. Obstacles like trees, shrubs can be detrimental but signs, bike racks and playground equipment are a plus! It never hurts to have a look around before you pull any gear out. Pick your equipment. Buildings can both cause a wind shadow and a wind funnel. Distances of free space will affect your line length. Pick your time. Watch out for midnight watering schedules. Or even early morning deliveries. Most importantly is to be safe about it.
Hi All, I am looking to do some Urban Kiting in the Coming weeks, Single line and Quad. I plan on capturing my adventures on Film, but the thought that someone walking past could walk off with my camera and tripod has me concerned. I will have some of my concentration on my kite flying, so I wont be able to watch the camera constantly. Normally where I fly there is no-one wandering around, so the thought of someone running of with my Camera has not been a concern. Does anyone else have similar concerns when filming? Does anyone have any Anti-theft suggestions? Thanks.
