New Quad

Postby Jeff » Mon, Sep 15 2008, 12:49 PM

While I was out of town for the week, my daughter decided to make a quad line kite to fly. Susan got a picture of her trying to take it out and fly.

I think it needs a few design adjustments, but she's off to a good start. :-)

Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

Excellent! You must be so proud to have a kite maker starting out at this early age.

Yes, and I suppose you'll come up with "CLOWNS GO!" for some of the rest of us! Of course, like 180GO!, we'll have to wear different hats and shirts ... maybe even a special red nose ...

Or maybe 360GO! for the slightly larger members! Or ...

Darn I wish the wind would pick up

Cheers,
Tom

Actually, she looks like she has my low wind technique down pat ... when the wind is low, so is my kite.

How old is Susan ... I ask because I'd like to get my grandson interested. At four years old, he simply doesn't have the attention span yet.

Cheers,
Tom

I don't think Susan wants me to say. ;)

But Kayla is 4 years and 9 mos.

She is interested, but doesn't quite get the concept of controlling a kite. She will pull and yank on a single line kite as if she's trying to fly a sport kite, since that's what she sees me do when I fly my Revs.

Okay, I deserved that one ...

Now where did I leave my walker?
