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


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. ;)

      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.
      ==
      Here is my own squad Team KiteLife, having an absolute blast on these...
      ==
      Some interplay, alongside a B-Series for scale and speed comparison...
      ==
      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.
