They fly like buttah!! Posted Image The winds we were facing last weekend of 25-30 mph would have been too much for anything else!! Not unless you were willing to stretch your sail or risk getting it blown out!! Posted Image It's a great kite to have and not worry about your flying so much! Let's you concentrate on your position in the group!!Posted Image

i actually had the std out in 2-3mph today... it wasn't great, but it was pretty good with race rods. the wind wasn't consistant judging by the flags

I have had winds like that.
My solution when I was learning, was to pack up my REV and go to the beer garden and have a beer and talk to people.
There would surely be a better day to fly.
But at that time only the REV I and REV II existed with standard rods.

Think he meant Stroke Survivor (SS). :)

A plan coming together.. hmm... la réalisation d'un grand projet! .. accomplissement final.

Love your photos. I think your dog is feeling left out (solitaire). ;) He/she can have fun chasing them!

the cigar smoking white haired leader says

"I love it when a plan comes together!"
