I'm more concerned that my best man was called Julian and comes from Staines but I lost touch with him... Hmmm!!!
Bad news is Jeepster is right ..... we have all been where you are now!! ... the only thing to add is read the threads about handle leaders and using more break... Not sure what kite/handles you have but going to maximum break on my standard B-series handles has transformed the way I fly and in particular makes reverse flight natural an inverted hovers easier then upright!
oh and Welcome onboard!
Sorry that I've been absent for so long! I've been a best man so it can't be me. I went to Abbotsford county secondary at the end of the seventies. Makes me feel old!!
I've really got hold of inverted flight now. I've also got a vented and love it! I really feel the two versions are very different. In a strong wind the vented is like caressing a woman whilst the non-vented is like riding a horse! I know which I prefer: and I'm not into equitation or beastiality! The knot positions are really helpful and make flying much more pleasurable with top line 2nd knot in.
Thanks to all that commented on my initial question.
