TKL at SPI 2017, clinics and more!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Super stoked to announce that Team KiteLife will be returning to the SPI Kite Festival in February!

  • Thursday, Feb 2 evening: Indoor show (tickets available at B&S Kites)
  • Fri/Sat, Feb 3-4 all day: Outdoor festival

Additionally, we'll be offering TWO separate workshops / clinics / classes on Sunday Feb 5th!

These are fun and educational workshops covering the most important aspects of dual or quad line kite flying and we do cover a lot of important fundamentals in the starting presentation of each class, so please be on time.

If we have full classes would mean one instructor for every 2.5 students over the course of three hours, with four instructors rotating through the class... That's a ton of personal, one-on-one time with experienced fliers. ;)

Included for each discipline:

  • Basic introduction to kite types and bridle / tuning
  • Field-proven techniques for setting up and breaking down your gear
  • Basics of flight posture, body, hands and feet, as well as line tension
  • Training with an instructor on your own kite(s), building your skills

FYI, you CAN register for both dual and quad line classes if you fly both styles!

Please note, kites are NOT provided.

Location: The Flats in South Padre Island TX

FYI, there is some odd Internet-related stuff going on with PayPal right now that is causing registration process to hang up - please be patient and try again tomorrow, thanks for your patience! ;)

      I have a skytiger hi100 and I can't seem to get it to go to the top of the wind window.  It's been a number of years since I've flown, so any info would be helpful

      Brand new condition, original custom colors, never flown except for the ST which has less than an hour of light use on it... My wife just doesn’t have time to fly, and we’re letting this set go to raise funds.

        
      All three are yours for $999!
      Normal retail for the suite of three Djinn is $1155 - pick up / meeting welcome or I can also ship via Priority Mail (usually less than $15 in the US).
      Full set only, not willing to break up the set, price is firm.

      Join us for two very full days of quad instruction on the beautiful shores of St Annes Beach in Lytham St Annes U.K. on Aug 30-31, 2018 immediately before the St Annes International Kite Festival!
      Instructors will be John Barresi (www.johnbarresi.com) and Josh Mitcheson.


      DAY ONE - AUG 30
      Quad 101: We'll be covering everything from absolute basics (pure beginner) all the way up through advanced techniques as well as the "weird stuff" like dogstake, short line catch and throw or any other quad line flight styles that may be of interest to the students, this first day is primarily focused on a full range of individual skills.

      DAY TWO - AUG 31
      Team Flying: Actually easier than it looks, team flying is proven to help your skills along much quicker while having a ton of fun at the same time in a very forgiving social environment - after having done 100+ clinics, it's very very rare that fliers didn't find a fair measure of success on the line with others - come on, pave the way for participating in a mega fly at your next event.

      Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Djinn, Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) or similar "1.5 platform" models (like Phoenix, Freilein, Polo, etc), designs like Fulcrum are also welcome - we'll go through painless equipment set up, good tuning and all aspects of flight - this clinic is not brand-centric, the goal here is to demystify quad flying and set you up to win at your own game.

      If you want to be able to try team flying, 40 metre / 120 ft lines (Spectra or Skybond material) are strongly suggested as the international team standard.

      Registration is $135 (approx £100) per person and includes full access to the clinic on both days (Thu 10a-4p / Fri 10a-3p)... Please note, there are ONLY 20 SPOTS available and we expect them to fill up very quickly.

      @Flintfootfilly (Sarah) @FlyingHigh (Gavin) @Simon Cooper @Steve SLF Caroline S. @Neil Lover @GRAHAM MARSHALL @Ferrit (Peter) @Mickp14 (Mick) @Stephen Sunderland @JWharton Diana M @bluesign2k @Rick Gill @Caller Stephen Alice M ? ? ? ? If you're coming, we start the "Quad 101" portion of this class at 10AM SHARP on Thursday morning... It's jam packed with invaluable information and first time attendees are encouraged to consider attendance mandatory, lots of little details that add dimension to your set up and flight experience.

      There will also be an add on indoor clinic on Wednesday Aug 29 from 4:30p to 9:30p, registration is $30 (15 spaces available) and covers 5 HOURS of indoor access and instruction.

      If you want some homework, you might also check out the tutorials available on KiteLife at http://learnkites.com/ and Kite Forge at http://kiteforge.com/help, can’t be too prepared!
