My first post, and wondering if anyone can provide some feedback to a first-time festival goer. My wife and I have decided to attend both the Wildwood and Washington State kite festivals this year, and want to know if we will be able to fly our kites at these venues as non-compeditors. We live in South Florida, and are both self-taught as we don't know anyone in our area who fly sport kites. We are hoping to meet fellow flyers and hone our skills at both Festivals. Just unsure of how the fields are setup for casual flying.
Mitch is a good guy to hook up with. Let him talk you into making the trek with him to the festival in Jamestown, ND where team 180GO! will have a team of 6 Revs flying. It's a 3-day festival and the first day, Friday, is all about lessons and learning to fly.
For an online kite shop, I highly recommend TheKiteSite.net
Big Mike and his wife run the shop, and Big Mike knows his revs--he's on 180GO! and has been flying Revs for years.
