Aug 11-12 in Long Beach WA!
Led by veteran pilots Scott Weider, Paul de Bakker and myself, this dual line kite workshop is for beginner though master levels, starting from the ins and outs of your equipment on up through fundamental flight techniques and trick flying - we'll also have a few Prism kites on hand for folks to try their hand at team and "ground play" flying without fear of damaging valuable equipment.

Anything with two strings is welcome including foils, stacks with tails and delta stunt kites - the purpose of this workshop is first and foremost to help you maximize the kites you have, and the way you like to fly... During the weekend, we'll cover a whole range of dual line topics that interrelate.

RSVP so far:
I keep breaking my Kymera. Need a lower spreader (non-ferruled) and a standoff.
Is there a "parts list" somewhere or what's the best way to figure out what I need? I'm trying to avoid calling a kite shop every time I need something and just order it on my own.
The standoff mount broke, so I need both the standoff mounting piece and the mini-standoff-spar but don't know the sizes.
As a follow up question, I didn't crash the poor thing, maybe I'm pulling too hard on launch or something? I'm not accustomed to these higher end kites so maybe I'm just a bit too hard on them?
My experience has been mostly with Prisms.

The latest trick I'm working on (getting acquainted with?) is the flic flac - I expect it to be a quite long term project. In the light winter winds the Kymera serves me well for this purpose (more reading in http://kitelife.com/forum/blogs/entry/303-different-moods-of-winter-wide-wind-window-tricking-in-light-winter-winds/ ).
First part of image: A recent (and lately unfortunately a bit rare) prework session. In the sky you can see a sun dog and a faint halo around the sun.
Second and third part of image: I like the mood of the greenish toned winter. In addition the green themed Kymera goes well along with it. However I can't say if the reddish or the blueish tone in these two images (from the same session) is the truest one.
Found a nice little place in a nice little town to practice and learn indoor dual line. After an hour of trail and error, I started to get the hang of it. Can't wait to go back again! Here's a video of my progress today. I just felt like sharing.
