Hey all, Anyone know of a good flight field in the Chincoteague VA area? (town of not just National Park) I am headed there with friends the first weekend of June and can't resist coastal winds, which even my non-kiting friends know about me by now. Any advice on area fields for flight would be great. I am a little worried that the wild pony situation may = a no kites policy in some areas, but have not managed to find references to kites on any of the area web pages that I have read so far (including NPS ones) I don't want to be scaring ponies and making people mad. And, I gotta ask - Anyone fly quad around Chincoteague and want to fly with me for a couple of hours???? Can't ignore my friends for long, but we could amaze them nicely for a little while.
Simple question. What kite festivals are on your list to attend? Are you going to just watch or fly? Even compete? SLK's, stunters, quads, freestyle, precision or a little of everything? Do you piggy back festivals that are close both geographically and time wise?
I'm coming from a 2-line airfoil (seattle air gear) background, which I love, and it's super-packable for traveling. I saw some nice 4-line Revolution recently, and I'm considering getting the travel version of a 1.5, as I'd like to be able to fit it in a carry-on case. Are there any downsides to this travel tote model? I presume it's slightly heavier, but will it make a huge difference?
