Just want to introduce myself as I've just joined today. My name is Lee and I currently fly a Benson Deep space dual line stunt kite and a Benson Airbow Quad line Hybrid kite. I've only flown a Revolution once and I loved it so I'm gonna be buying one when I get back from holiday in the next few weeks....

Thanks for reading :)

Hello Lee

See you after your holiday.

Hello Ian I certainly do remember thanks mate for allowing me to fly your Revolution and it was a real pleasure meeting you too. Once I'm back from Tenerife we'll have to meet up and you can have a play with the Airbow ;)
Oh BTW I solved the problem with taking my kites on as luggage too, I went to the local fishing tackle shop and found a canvas wrapped drain pipe thingy with a carrying handle for fishing rods. I fitted a hasp and staple to it and bingo, problem solved so both my kites are coming with me so I can still have my kite fix ;)
The cost of the holder was only 10 and the hasp and staple was just kicking around my shed and needed to be used, have a look below...

Hello Lee and welcome along

That's what we used to carry our frames too ;)

It came out no problems at all.... well the frames were unscathed, just a slight tear on the outside of the case... not bad considering the journey it had made :D

happy flying

I was over in Tenerife a few months ago.Been a few times and flown duals and quads.Kite flying space is at a premium,depending on where ya go.Early morning[5am-9am]thers zero winds mostly.So stay in bed.Take a Sedgewick rev 1 or SUL.The DS will be sweet.The Air Bow will Love La Medano.

Best spots i flew

La Medano always has a wind and thers long Sandy beeches.Surf and kite Paradise on Teherife
Flying on the beech between Las Americas and Los Cristianos[nr the convelesance Home] is a good spot but,gets full of half naked young folk during full sun hours. :rolleyes: get ther around 7pm.The sunsets awsome[take camera].Thers also a Mc Donalds that do a great Coffee
The surfers at the central beech in Las Americas are quite terratorial at weekends with other surfers but,like watching a kite when waiting for a wave.
Thers a spot,just behind The Las Palmeras Hotel in Las Americas.Which i love to fly at.Again,loadsa surfers,but after 7pm,its pritty empty of sun bathing beautys.Ya gota take a camera.The sunsets are amazing towards La Gomera.

Have fun and welcome to the forum ,,,,,BTW,,,,SIAM PARK IS AWSOME for the water slides....Lauro Park is a great day out to,,,,
