Re: Hi from a brand spanking new kite flier

Hey Goes (Steve), I'm going to try to make it to Wheaton Saturday. It is unusual that the kids don't have 6-7 activities during the day. I'm going to try and bring one or two of my offspring with to check it out too. I hope we get a change to meet. My Snapshot already has the grass stains to show ad...

Re: Hi from a brand spanking new kite flier

I just wanted to give a quick update on my progress. I did decide to get a Prism Quantum to start and am learning the ropes all over again with a good quality kite. I decided to buy a Prism snapshot 1.9 for fun for the older kids (not to mention that my 13yr old was beating the heck out of my starte...

Re: Looking for plans for kids kite making

Thanks for the suggestions. I used one of the templates and cut out some blanks from garbage bags and used straws for the spines. They worked great and the more we loaded them up with stickers the more stable they proved to be. Flying in the park across the street with some nice wind made them fly v...

Looking for plans for kids kite making

I've gotten my wife to buy into my new kite obsession, but she's called in my marker for my kite purchases. We are cub scout leaders and she wanted to do kite making for our cub scout den meeting. I've read on the festival posts that there is kite making for kids. Can anyone help point me in the rig...

Re: Hi from a brand spanking new kite flier

Thanks again gang. I am about to run outside and take advantage of the great sunshine and weather for the holiday weekend to fly. My 15 yr old has no interest unless it's electronic or plugged in, but I know my other kids 13,9 and 6 have watched me through our front windows. I can't think of a bette...

Re: Hi from a brand spanking new kite flier

Thanks guys. I'm really brand spanking new. I'm getting my feet wet with the dual lines. I'm sure that after I've been addicted for a while that I will come over to the dark side, but for now I'll stick with the gateway kites. :up: I have a large park across the street from my house and a large pond...

Hi from a brand spanking new kite flier

Hi folks. I'm brand new to this thing, but I've been bitten hard. (So far at least) We were on vacation in Myrtle Beach a few years ago and I saw a guy flying a kite on the beach and was immediately drawn to it. We left before I could stop by a kite shop to learn more about it, but this year we went...
