Quad Mega Fly Workshop (Mar 24-25, 2018)

John Barresi

Recommended Posts

Join us for two full days of quad mega fly activity and instruction with John Barresi (Team KiteLife) and Scott Weider (Rev Riders) in Long Beach WA including shoulder to shoulder team maneuvers, overall team awareness and technique relevant to mega flies as well as 4x4 GRID FLYING if we’re able to gather at least 16 pilots (including our two instructors), this is a chance to really hone your skills for mega flies at upcoming events such as WSIKF.
There are 23 spaces available, allowing for as many as 25 total pilots including the two instructors to make a grid of 5x5!
We start at 10am on Saturday morning with general roundtable discussion and orientation about participating in and managing quad mega flies, moving very quickly into what should be nearly non-stop mega flying for two straight days (end at 4pm each day) and of course, there will be remedial assistance for pilots who need it.
NOTE: There will be opportunities to not only be part of these team exercises, but also to actually LEAD (with help and support) if you'd like to expand your skills even further.
Registration fee is $125 per person ($100 for KiteLife Subscribers) and includes TWO FULL DAYS.

Plan on meeting up with Scott Weider and I at the Bolstad approach at 10am - anticipate minimal “presentation” time, we’ll mostly be working on the line real time as we work through normal mega fly techniques, maneuver / set up / linkage knowledge and grid (if we have at least 16 pilots)... Even if we don’t have 16 we’ll still drill on the basic concepts and physical movement used in a grid. Key focus for the weekend is familiarization with all aspects of 10+ flying, but we’ll break into smaller groups as needed for remedial help and / or available bodies.

If for any reason we’re not at Bolstad we may be just south at the Sid Snyder approach but you can always text me via 503-890-0280 for last minute updates... There may be some rain but the forecast is improving, be sure to bring appropriate rain gear regardless, maybe a shelter, hot beverage or anything else to make your day enjoyable. ;)
