Re: 2015 festivals!

I'm definitely starting to think about it...would love to do Florida in January.

Now they run the Treasure Island Fest, and the local club runs Kitemania 2 or 3 weeks later. But I think most people will likely do the Treasure Island fest, no? I know it's better for me on the MLK weekend.

Re: KOLM Questions

Just be aware that this festival is pretty tight on space for public flying. They will likely have a "learn to fly" area, and then there's the big demo area and the show kites area. If the weather is nice, it's quite crowded. But don't let that dissuade you. It is a great festival and wort...

Yeah, that's probably the best so far. My trigger is having the same problem.

Re: Help 180GO! design our team kites

Venting is fine. Grey gives you 3 colors on the kite, and that seems too much.

I'm still struggling with the panel arrangement on this model...

Re: Help 180GO! design our team kites

I'm struggling with this panel layout.

I love the stark boldness of the solid color on our current kites, with its asymmetry.

Do we have to have grey panels?

Otherwise, July is often a pretty slow month kite-wise.

Could run a Hangout for multi-party video conferencing.

OK, so come out and ski on Saturday April 5, and fly in Arvada on the 6th. :)

Ft. Collins is the last Sunday of April.

Re: Revolution frame opinions

I was really happy that the kite I was flying at TI for demos had lighter rods (even if it's only for the psychological boost), because we had very little wind at that point. Well, lighter is certainly better...I just think that once you get down to 2-wraps and Race and whatever, the differences ar...

Re: Revolution frame opinions

I'm going to revive this for a moment. For light winds, does anyone prefer two wrap or race rods in their sail? I don't want to buy a SUL or zen, but figured I could fly all summer long with my B series and race rods. I don't get that concerned about it, and often just forget to think about it. Thi...

There are some pictures posted on the 180 Go! Facebook page, which is publicly viewable. Some videos from other people have started showing up on YouTube too, I'll link some of those here when I get a chance.

Looks like my time in Florida will be extended a bit. Work wants me to go to a meeting in Orlando on the following Thursday. When I told my manager that I was going to be in the Tampa area on the weekend, he said he needed someone to do a site-walk for a customer on Tuesday as well, and that's in St...

I'd need to be flying Jynx's lingerie kite this weekend. We've had wind gusts reported up to 70 mph.
