Basic Kitemaking supplies

Mike,

for someone who has never done it before, what do you feel are the basic items required to make something like a Rev 1.5?

The basic tools (obviously a sewing machine) would be a good start and maybe a walkthrough on how to start and finish?

I need a winter project....

Re: Logo items

I just created a quick cafe press shop so you can see what it's like. I had the site put up all products with the same image, so some of the stuff will look a little goofy. If we want to do this, some of the products would have to be customized with the correct sized logo/text etc. http://www.cafep...

Re: Great Lakes Kite Festival

Man, sounds like fun... I've got a couple more kites to buy now... I've been wanting to get a SUL, I usually just pull out the 3.6 meter foil when the wind drops that low... But then that's just for field flying by myself. The foil can be flown (with much fancy footwork) in 0 wind. Now I've got a l...

Re: Calendar

the calendar on the portal page doesn't have event integration, only a list of the events coming up (well, and past... that's a bug that no one has an answer for yet).

If you want to see events on the calendar, you have to expand the Calendar link for now.

Introducing new people to the sport

My brother and his family are coming up from Florida tomorrow. Looks like we will have decent winds and tolerable temperatures so I plan on taking my nephews, brother and brother-in-law out tomorrow to show them that this is not just standing in a field and holding a string... Wish me luck in turnin...

Re: Flying quads builds muscles!

It does not hurt quite as much, when hitting the ground with the kites. Yes it does... :( It hurts my pride especially when someone comes along and is watching you intently as you slam your Rev into the ground.... but when I know that's going to happen, I make sure I hit hard enough to bounce back ...

Jenny is usually frazzled by the time I come home as she's had Elie all day long at home and also takes her to work (she's a barber). But, on those rare occasions when I get her to go with me, she's a dulie girl and there is almost nothing funnier than watching her flailing her arms and trying to ke...

My daughter used to love being pulled down the field. I actually had football shoes with cleats when I first was learning to control a 6 stack without being pulled away.
