KITES ON ICE

Postby Hector Herrera » Fri, Dec 04 2009, 09:03 PM

I have never flown an indor kite, but I allways tought that it would be easier to do it on ice, since, while skating, one can create more wind speed, when going backwards.

That is cool!!

I've flown(?) an indoor kite and I've ice skated quite a bit. Can't imagine getting my brain around adding the two together. Those guys are fantastic.

Thanks for showing it to us Hector.

Cheers,
Tom

I miss you too yaall, I have flown kites every now and then, not much, and the reazon for not flying anymore is that I have to take care of my kids a bit more. It can not be just kites, kites ,kites...
I guess I need to be with them a little more. Kites can wait. Kids cannot. But the thing is that I am getting old and age is not waiting :-)

I understand Hector, life is a balancing act.
I hope the family is doing well.
