Eye Candy - Mind Candy

mp3 player playing, kite in the air, enough pull so that flying it is effortless, the wind pushing your clothes against your back and and the feeling that it is holding you up... The mind blowing view of a blue and white 3 dimensional sky, framing your kite. One with the wind At peace with the world

Re: Kite boarding

When I first got into kiting, the 3rd klite I bought was an Ozone 1.5M LD Stunt. I LOVE this kite as in a stiff wind, it has enormous power for it's size. I had tried to fly my Rev 1.5SLE for the first time and it was just an awful experience... I left it alone for a little while and flew the LD. Be...

Then again, low wind flying is something that takes a while to master... or even get used to.

Re: Kite boarding

as it was described to me.... I have an Ozone 3M Riot which I could use for most everything except windsurfing. I can fly it dual or quad, handles or control bar. For buggying, handles seem to be preferred. For things like skiing, the bar was recommended. In fact, when I asked the question to my ki...
