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.

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!

      View Advert OSKUSA Exodus Full Sail and Exodus Max Vented
      For Sale is an OSKUSA Exodus Full/Standard sail kite and an OSKUSA Exodus Max Vented kite. Both were bought in 3/2019 from Ocean Shores Kites. This is the newest version of these kites; check the logo placement on the top RH side of the sails. These kites have A-Holes instead of mesh on the leading edge. They also have Center T's on the leading edge to hold the vertical spars.  Both kites have Crystal T2 frames, come with a canvas bag, and include an extra endcap with bungee. The two kites are in excellent/great condition.
      Asking $275 for both, but am willing to sell them individually for $145 each. PayPal payment only. I will provide free shipping. Will sell to USA only.
      Please message me with any questions or additional photos. THX!

      We're pleased to yet again announce the next prize being given away to our most appreciated supporters, the Kitelife Subscribers... For roughly 10 cents per day they play a major role in keeping KL growing in every way.
      This is one of the more unique Subscriber prizes we've offered to date!

      Our winner will receive one moderately used Symphony 2.2(.4), manufactured by HQ Kites ($85 value) as a dual line foil and then significantly modified into a superb quad line (adding the ".4") by our very own @riffclown from here on the forum, Riff is already well known for his passion and ingenuity and received direct blessings from HQ USA as well... This is one of the best handling quad foils I've had the pleasure of flying, and Riff has even shared the plans for anyone who would like to mod their own kite.
      Previous forum discussion on the subject, and the plans:
      https://kitelife.com/forum/topic/7264-my-hq-symphony-224/
      ** Lines and handles are NOT included, recommendation is between 50'-100' of 90#-200# line.

      ==
      The actual build in time lapse...

      If you haven't done so already, You can sign up here.

      Odds of winning for this prize is currently 1/415, and will be drawn on June 23rd, 2020!

      Our thanks, and the very best to you... Let the drooling begin.

      Alright, we've got three hot topics lined up... Hopefully we'll reach a point someday where I don't feel like I have to stress this - do not underestimate the depth of subject and gratification available in these online sessions, we've ALL been surprised so far at how quickly time goes by, how enjoyable it is, and the sheer volume of details and experiences that we were able to comfortably relate.

      Registration includes all members of your household, we are expecting a variety of seasoned panelists to participate in each session, and projected duration is roughly 2 hrs each with the ability to go longer if group enthusiasm dictates.
      I sincerely hope to see many of you in one or more of these sessions - its odd times, and the socialization does us good. 🤟
