Re: Indoor Kites

My pleasure Hector, Before you drop the dollars on a new vapor, look very closely at some of the more modern SSUL's. There are extremely light kites that trick easier than the Vapor (although none as pretty IMHO). I just haven't flown any of them to comment. Just an example, I think the Nirvana had ...

Re: Indoor Kites

Hector, I've flown the Vapor, Flashlight, 3D and Ozone. If budget is the #1 concern, then the 3D is hard to beat. It does lots of tricks and you should be able to get one used for $50 or so. While I haven't flown the newer model to say for myself, I've heard folks say the older model flies better. T...

Re: Indoor Kites

I want to second TheBigKiteGuy. Nice fellow, but hold on to your money until things are right. I ordered a indoor deca, got it in the wrong colors, sent it back and then months of not having a kite or my money ensued. It ended up being handled by Visa.

Re: How Many Of The IKE Members...

outsidetheboxkitestudio, My apologies for almost hijacking the thread... I don't compete. I realize that is exactly some folks cup of tea, but putting that pressure on kiting would make it work instead of fun for me. As soon as I make kiting a job, I'll quit kiting. Good luck finding some friendly c...

Re: Dual Line Instruction Sites

Those are all good links and I've used them myself, but from personal experience, there is *nothing* like being shown up close and personal how to do tricks live. With that said...I'm by no means adept, but there are a few tricks that I can teach you. I'd be glad to do exactly that up in GH! Be well...

Re: The Grandest Haven

Maybe we should take this off line Knotted, but I have spent a year on the verge of selling my Deep Space. I love my Gems and just haven't found a place where I feel the same about it yet. Maybe you and I can set aside some time at GH and you can introduce the two of us. Dan, Deep Space, Deep Space,...

Re: Short Quad Line Sets

Good topic. I've often felt a breeze coming down the street and wondered...hmm. I don't want to hijack, but to something you said, Chris: I am absolutely the worst indoor pilot I've ever seen. With that said, a 'no wind' day and 'indoor' are two noticeably different things. You will find moves that ...
