Thanks Kram... The videos are a favorite of mine as well.

It's hard to come up with fresh tapes... I know people have them out there, but getting them converted to digital format is inconvenient for most people, or even making a copy of said tapes for me to do it myself. Motivation is a big issue too.

If any of you have some of the VHS tapes put out by Mackinaw Kite Co. for the Great Lakes Sport Kite Championships, I have permission from Steve Negan (owner) to republish to the web... I can assure safe return of the tapes within 2-3 weeks, as I have a video encoder (hardware) here in my office.

All personal tapes are acceptable, as long you (the submitter) shot them and have rights to the film. :rolleyes:

Any commercial tapes will also be considered, but I would have to negotiate with the producer any of tape... Often it's events that no longer sell tapes that love the extra free promotion and won't lose sales (like Great Lakes).

Overdrive is sweet... I'll put up more good footage of them as soon as some hits my desk. :lol:

For those of you that don't know... There are also exclusive videos in our KL Subscribers area, which are not available anywhere else. They are general festival videos 5-8 minutes long, some with soundtracks... Currently there is one from Ahmedabad, and one from Malaysia, also exclusive photo galleries. We'll be adding more as we attend more and more festivals.

If anyone else is interested - http://www.kitelife.com/subscribe

Current KL Subscriber comments on the videos are welcome here in the forum, and please be frank... We can only try to improve.

Tell your friends, and as KL grows so will our ability to amaze you with our content... Plus, if they fill in the referral page after signing up as a Kitelife Subscriber you will receive one bonus entry into our current prize drawing.

Remember, I pretty much solidified my own Kitelife concept in August of last year when I took over ownership and could commit sweat and tears... So, it's been flurry of development! :)

Also, I could not stress enough how sincerely open I am to any and all comment... Positive or negative, I try to live by the "truth in all things" theory... I will always consciously consider all ideas, criticisms and comments. In fact, it is the fuel for what I do... You guys help stoke the fires.
