Thank you for the welcome! I am new to the hobby/sport but recently discovered kite flying is a great activity to combine with my family's love for traveling with our RV. My home is in Monument, Colorado and my favorite camping destination is the Oregon coast. I happened upon the Lincoln City Kite Festival a few years back and was fascinated with level of control the quad flyers had with their kites. I picked up my first quad at a local hobby show and it sat in my RV until last summer. I now have about 15 hours of flying (and crashing, untangling lines, chasing the handles down the beach after leaving it leading edge up, chasing the kite sleeve down beach, etc...) under my belt. As a newbie, I appreciate the wealth of knowledge this community is willing to share!

Welcome to the forum. There's beginner videos available on this forum. Watch them, rinse and repeat. It eliminate all those "hard" lessons that you still haven't learned. If you don't have extended leaders for the tops of the handles, get some or make some. You can buy some on this forum. Minor expense. You need them or the kite will control you instead of you controlling the kite. Watch the tuning video. To avoid the tangled lines, watch the line management video. Watch all the videos. Then watch them again, and again. Treat them as Gospel because they are. You can work your own style into the process once you can stay out of trouble.

Most importantly, have fun, smile and don't forget to breathe.
