Transitions, up for grabs...

Recommended Posts

Alright folks, due to my current life transition(s) and unexpected expenses I’m needing to raise some funds so I’m putting up my last full set of B-Pros for raffle...

Six kites (framed and bridled) in various good to rough conditions, ALL have a good bit of life left in them except for the STD (would need trailing edge panel replacement) but they are all part of a matched set that I flew around the US and at festivals worldwide for several years.

Man, if these kites could tell stories... 🤪

All are actual Bazzer-built B-Series Pros, some with aftermarket leading edge tabs and wear strips added, almost all are TK-ties bridles in various conditions... Here’s a playlist of some of the adventures they’ve been on:

Full list of kites and included framed:

  • STD - Race SPL
  • MID1 - 3 wrap
  • MID2 - 3 wrap
  • VTD1 - 3 wrap
  • VTD2 - 3 wrap
  • XTR - 3 wrap

Basic up close look at each:

All kites come AS IS, a very heavily flown set from my own performance collection - it’s possible that I’ve missed a small hole here or there but the photos and videos above are revealing enough - even at $125 each (a steal) this package would be worth $750, an epic score for whoever wins.

Enter here, any quantity...

https://kitelife.com/forum/store/product/95-b-pro-suite/

Enter as many times as you like!

Each entry ticket is $5, numbers will be issued in order of purchase, no cap on tickets available, one winner will be drawn at random via Random.org on May 10th.

Thanks as always for your support. 🙏🏻

So as it stands right now I have a 2.84% chance of winning? I like my odds! 😁

For this kind of raffle, I think of it first and foremost as a donation to someone who has taught me in videos and a few times in person, who is having trouble and needs money.  The raffle just makes it a little easier to give the money.

Thank you Bryan, very much. 🙏🏻

I always try to provide some value, anyway.

Apologies if my above comment was misconstrued. My intent was to inspire more participation. In my defense, it worked. I bought a few more.

Alright, per the 3rd party drawing service (totally unbiased)...

HUGE congrats to ticket #119, @TheJuggler (Neil) - these kites are going to Michigan!

To all... What can I even say... I hope I manage to show enough of myself that you know.

Thank you, lets keep making beautiful kitefliers together. 🙏

Congratulations, Neil. You should consider an unboxing video so the rest of us can share in the experience vicariously. I've worked in a kite store and remember how much fun it could be. Again, congrats -Michael
