We are up and running on our live video Huntington Beach live web cam...

So click on: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/hbkp2010 and let us know how it comes in for you...

We'll leave it run live for a few hours hoping to hear back from some of you!

If all is well, we'll start the live stream for Kite Party 8, sometime tomorrow afternoon when things get going!

Later...

Yes, the sun was out,and the wind was crankin'. We had a great time flying today, although, there were times when we had to hang on to Mike. If we could have figured out just how to bridle him, I think he would have flown real well. :lol:

The weather is awesome here. Sunny and warm. :)

Just did a mini-mega fly with 15 kites.

The camera shows a decent view. We couldn't get the second one going because of internet issues at the hotel, but the one webcam is doing nice job.

How many ways to say awesome? Great weather, lots of flying, a great time had by all.

I didn't take pictures or video this year. I figured others would do enough of that. I'll link to what I find...

Here's Mike and me flying with 3 of the Rev Riders from New Jersey:

This one is also the Rev Riders, and definitely Mike, and I think that's me in the middle, but i can't make out who's on the end...

Here's some footage from the day I missed, Sunday:

Thanks for all the video links Jeff.
Kite Party is unlike other festivals. Some of the most fun is had before or after the official festival weekend. Especially for quad fliers, it's all about party. Flying together, going to meals together, seeing old friends and making new ones is a large part of the fun.

Yeah, I can lead a mega fly and dance at the same time!

Here's a few other photos I like.
What the kites were doing while Dave Bradley and I were doing our leg kicks:

The IKE group photo:

IKE with honorary guest star:

The Rev Riders (Scott, Rich, and Laura) and Jim and Lynn Foster:

Mike S on the B series red in the upper right, I'm on the lower left with an standard red. Tom (Jeepster) on the upper left gold and Jeff on the lower right gold. iQuad arching behind us.

Like above, but put the new kid in. Zack is flying the kite in the upper right. He was doing amazingly well considering how few hours he's had on a rev.

That's me on #4. I think Jeepster is on #2. I know that's his kite. We both have the gold vented, his is slightly more yellow looking.

That's what I thought, but it was hard to tell in the photo. I'll edit the original post.
