Went to the kite festival PacRim in Vancouver BC, Canada.. at Vanier Park...

what a great festival, the BCKA Kite Club is a amazing group of flyers

http://www.bcka.bc.ca/Home/About.htm

The weather was just perfect for 4 days of flyin.. both inside and out... I would like to thank BCKA for organizing this.... and bring Team iQuad to this event...

Well myself coming from Victoria.. just a ferry ride away.. my Girlfriend, Willow joined us for the weekend... and was a great help with the video camera.. now working on some new video for our Future DVD... check out our new one that just came out...

No just one set of handles and a really large special effects budget to add the second kite in during post production..... not that I'm in denial you understand :lol:

Steve flies two Revs with standard iQuad team kites, handles and lines. <grin>
