A nice story and a couple of kite aerial photos of the medieval heart of Ljubljana, Slovenia was just published on our KAP website ... 😉
Launched from a tricky, narrow place with a lot of turbulence - but with quite good results it was worth having a couple of litle heart attcks 🙂 ...

Full day dedicated to learning our way around short line (30') quad line flying - focus on tuning, basic "holding patterns" to maintain flight with minimal effort, 360s, up and over, catch and throw, variable and no wind conditions.
Light / variable wind flying in urban environments IS possible without a great deal of effort after you've got a handle on the fundamentals - then you can fly anywhere, even your front yard or in a local courtyard.
We only have space for SIX students this time around, this is a one day semi-informal gathering at Overlook Park in Portland, OR... Registration is $100 per person, discounted to $75 for KiteLife subscribers.

Video from the same location...
Students should come equipped with 30 foot lines - 50# Skybond is preferred, but 90#/100# or LPG is acceptable... You'll also do best with a STD 1.5 size Revolution kite equipped with 2 wrap, black race or diamond rods, it could also be useful to have mid-vent but it's rarely needed.
