My wife would like to participate also, she is a novice.

So one hack and one novice headed North soon. :ani_yahoo::ani_yahoo:

I'm guessing the location is down the street from the Museum where the parking lot next to the beach is?

We have only been there once, not sure if I remember it correctly.

Thanks

We park on the beach if it's packed enough, or use the lot if not!! Usually just to the left if you were to follow the road out to the water! There's a wind break we use as a base of operations, unless really wet out!

Wayne, I see the big wooden wind breaks are parked up on the side of Sid Snyder, just east of the Restrooms. The good news...I see a big grader out there this morning, grading the approach road :)

Air miles locked and loaded for the next clinic where the suns shines, and that will work with our schedule.

We are hooked. :)

We had a great time at 'Long Beach with JB'!

A little cool, cloudy, some sun, as well as periods of liquid sunshine, but FAR better than forecast.

We are still the 'slow kids at the back of the class', but John gave us lots of things to work on.

If you can make it to a clinic with JB, you will not regret it!!!

Thanks for the invite Wayne, and letting me thrash your kite. You guys make it look so easy.

The 2 1/2 hour round trip was well worth it! :plane:

Might be able to catch a Wed now and then;

On an indoor Rev:

Regarding tuning the lines.. what/where is neutral. What kite characteristics are you looking for?

Is your kite tuned to neutral?

Why is the tuning made at the kite instead of the handles?

Thanks

Individual feel thing really! I had long leaders with many knots made for the kite end of my attachment points! Changing at the kite side, lets me keep my handle end feeling consistent in my hands! Nothing ever changes there! I've found a pretty regular knot setting I use 95% of the time! Sometimes I change it for room dynamics if I need more drive or brake!

Neutral? For me - yes! For JB - probably not! It really is a feel thing, you find what works for you!

Most new Indoors need a little more flex for the LE, they come a little too straight for most, but that again is personal choice! Best to set it up next to another to compare LE flex!

Characteristics - I look for a "floaty" feeling, others something else! The LE bend seems to make the kite float more in the inverted position!
