What's your favorite time to fly?
Posted 23 May 2013 - 05:57 AM
As the last of the sun faded today, I grabbed a most therapeutic half an hour with my Standard. A fairly steady 8-10km/h (5-6mp/h). The sun setting behind the kite, the halo effect of the sail. It was such a peaceful time and peaceful conditions. ALMOST Zen like.... It got me thinking. What's your favorite time of the day to fly?

Well ok 9am to 11am for many reasons: parks are empty as kids are in school, sprinklers are finished watering the grass by this time, its not too hot yet even during middle of summer, and its one of the best times of the day to take kite pics and kite video.

Any Free time, is the best time to fly.
Wind or no wind.
Dawn and Dusk are great though.
Less people around.
Great to hear you caught some air Rob.

I had to think about this, since I fly at any time!! Nothing seems to feel as good as a inspired indoor session, as much as I like outdoor!!

Seriously, I've had so many "best" moments flying at all times of the day, in different places...
They're all my favorite.
Have kite and energy, will fly.

It's important to have as much fun as possible while we're here.
It balances out the times, when the minefield of life explodes.
