It was a dream for a very long time,
so i brought my revs from France in the Big Apple during the summer.
The wind was terrible, up and downs and turning 180 degrees all afternoon - and the weather not so sunny -
but i had a great time :

I wish I'd known when you were planning to do this as I would gladly have met you in the park for a time!

Nice video. But how come you didn't call the Jersey crew?! We all would have loved to have meet up. Anyway, nice kites and nice flying. THose lines look realy long, what length are they? THey seem longer than 120s (ft. that is).

Hi Cheesecake...

Nice video. Like the others said, too bad you didn't let the Jersey Crew know you were in the area and wanted to fly. We most certainly would have joined in the fun!
I hope it was everything you dreamed it to be.

btw, did you try Junior's Cheesecake? :P

Warm regards...
Laura

Hello my american friends,

I had a littel problem because i understood that you were flying only during the weekend, only in the liberty park NJ, in front of the statue and not in central parc - now i can understand why ! the wind is such a mess in central park - but i really wanted to fly there - it was during the weeke - a wensday afternoon as i rememeber - Helen Richester had to meet with all of you the next weekend and i was leaving on friday... so i did send any other messages - it seems too complicated - plus i flew in Fire island all weekend before, had a great time and was with my girl friend who has to wait for me while i fly. The hollydays where organised for her - not for me - so i stayed just 1 hour in Central Park with my kites. - I went also to 3 kites festivals in Jakarta, Muna Island and Bali (Indonesia) the next 2 weeks. and this was a lot of flying during the summer !

Now you know it all - but i will send you a message next time i come, and be very pleased to fly with you -
i will post very soon so videos about how to make incredible indonesian traditional kites with leaves and baboo !
I hope you like them - and please tell me when you come to Paris - we are 10 flying revs here -

Sorry for that !

Alex,
In America there is a saying......Wednesday is Sundae!!!!! (sp). Had I known, I would've taken the short time out of a the day to meet you. OH WELL, there's always next time to look forward to.
Travel safe on your adventures. Please touch base next time you're in the area.
