Re: Hi from a brand spanking new kite flier

TMadz, Your thought process is mine exactly. I bought the Prism 1.9 Snapshot for that same exact reason, then I got a Prism Hypnotist. This way when someone wants to try, they can fly the foil & I won't have a major anxiety attack. I'll be flying this weekend on some FL beach and won't make any ...

Re: Club fly to shake off the winter blues!

Hi everyone, My faithful companion (adventure dog) and I both had a terrific time flying with TJ, & Steve. My journey into the "Dark Side" was well rewarded, and I had a blast. I learned more in 30 minutes than in 3 months. Later that afternoon, I couldn't resist and flew a dual UL in...

Re: Hi from a brand spanking new kite flier

:welcome:

The Dark Side calls us all. I will be working on my quad flying sometime this weekend. However, I still really, really enjoy flying duals, and get a kick out of flying UL's & SUL's. Between the dark side & the light, there is twilight.

Steve, let's get the Wheaton gig going. I was planning on flying this weekend. I'll meet you at your park, it's Danada right? Let me know.

Finally

Hello everyone,
In Chicagoland, we finally hit the motherload. It was in the high 40's (what global warming?), and the wind gods sent us wind (high teens). I put work aside, & gathered the flight crew.

Re: very quiet...

Well, I grabbed adventure dog, and went out on Wednesday, with my new gift to myself. It was shifty, gusty, and cold. I got in about an hour, and then we both called it a day. Wednesday was the only decent day when I could get out. Even then, it was a shifty gusty, cold day at best. Better days are ...

Re: Lightwind dual-line kite

Hi everyone, I've been flying duals and have a Prism 4D. It's probably in the top 1-3 kites as far as being the lightest on the market. There is a Sky Burner which may be lighter, by a 10th of an ounce. I'm not even sure what a 10th of an ounce difference could be. I've flown the 4D indoors and it f...

Re: Maybe fly this weekend? 12/3 or 12/4

The weather looks to be wet & crummy all day. I don't mind cold weather at all, but the wet puts a 'damper' on things. :oops: (did I say that?). Tomorrow would be better, so I'm goinng attempt to re-arrange my Sunday. I'll post later tonight if I can. Busse would be fine, plus it's centrally loc...

Re: Club Fly Nov 19th or 20th?

It was nice to see everyone again, Even though it was border line chilly/cold today the wind gods were with us. I had some friends meet me and we all enjoyed ourselves silly big time. I really didn't even bother putting anything else up except my heart, and not on my sleeve (Ha!). Breeze on, David

Re: Club Fly Nov 19th or 20th?

The wind gods have changed their minds & blessed me at the last second. I will make it on Sunday around 1 00. I'll grab an hour of some flying tomorrow between domestic activities scheduled for me on Saturday.
