I don't fly to JC, but grew up with the music. A lot of good stuff from him.

For me, it all depends on my mood. I am a music lover and listen to pretty much everything except Rap...to me that really isn't music but hey, if you like it then go for it.

I have over 8K songs on my MP3 player and about 50 different playlists. My mood will always dictate my flying music. Sometimes I just want to unwind, relax and forget the issues of the world (and work) so the softer side of music comes out, like Enya, Savage Garden, Enigma, George Jones, Waylon Jennings etc... Sometimes I just want to get after it so Techno, dance, and progressive surface. Other times I may go into older classic rock like Pink Floyd, Moly Hatchett, Dire Straits, Nugent (Stranglehold is one of my favorites), The Who and Peter Frampton (etc..etc...) too many good classic bands to list!!!

I need to add that it also depends on what type of kite I am flying. For power kites & buggying I tend to go more towards the upbeat techno or hard rock. For duallies and Rev's it could be anything.

I do seem to prefer the longer "steady beat" type of songs over the short N sweet ones. A long song like "Do you feel like I do (live)" just makes flying all that much better and you can really get into the music.

If I had only one type of music I think I would go nuts.

I live and die by my iPhone, best $300 I ever spent, hands down.

Otherwise, the iPod Touch is nice too. :D

Gosh- that kite flying is one expensive hobby. When I bought my first $15 kite i never thought I would have to spend four digit amounts just to play in the sand. Three kites, three linesets, a kite clinic here a kitelife subscription there, I-Pod, and now, after reading and listening in on some of the music I have to spend MORE money on more music. Hell I think I go back to collecting stamps...
Thanks for all the input
BTW: How can you make $5000 with kite flying? You start with $10000 :lol:

Wow Monks....reaching deep for Metheny.

Howzabout some Gentle Giant to fill in the spaces while flying? Very astral stuff.

Anyone fly to Cirque du Soleil music. Afterall it is designed to go with motion. I find its tempo to be very "revolutionary" as opposed to "dualicious".

Also check out Blue Man Group......Aside from their awesome stage show, their music offers a great many possibilities for routines.

For MP3 players, I use the Creative Zen. One of the things I love about Creative players is that they play just about any type of music file, you can rip any CD straight to them in MP3 format and you aren't somewhat forced to use third party music handlers such as I-Tunes or others to get your music. My Creative player hooks up to my PC directly through USB and it appears just like another hard drive, just drag & drop your music from your PC to your player. Super simple to use. It can also sync so the minute you hook it to your PC it automatically downloads the new music from your computer to your player.

Here's my new MP3 player:
Creative Zen X-fi

Thumbs up from me!

You can buy right from the Creative site, but you could also purchase the players from most local electronic stores. We have a Frye's here where I got mine. You can usually save a couple bucks getting it locally especially if you find any sales or coupons, the online site is full MSRP. I would highly recommend getting the 32 gig over the smaller ones, 16 gig can get filled up pretty quickly if your MP3 collection is on the larger side. My older player is the Creative Zen Vison W 60 gig and I filled that one up - but I did have a bunch of full length movies on it too.

For accessories, I would suggest picking up an extra car charger for the player. It comes with all the connect cables and an AC charger. You also may want to get a good quality headset, the ones that come with it are pretty good but there are better ones on the market. I got a set of "Skull Candy" ear buds and those have pretty awesome sound quality.

Skull Candy

All of this is of course just my opinion and what I like. Hope it helps.
