All this talk about wind range is at its core, irrelevant.

Pilot ability is what ultimately flies any kite........

 

Just saying...........

Someone pls hook Carolyn up with a couch or better yet a bed.

She deserves more than anyone I know, to be at WW having a kickass time.

If I was going to be there I would, so somebody please fill in for me and help Carolyn with a bed to crash in!!!!!!

When in doubt I have always been a firm believer in framing light, better to struggle with too much energy than fight not having enough

AGREED!




#93721 Flying at Miami Beach

Posted by quaa714 on 08 October 2013 - 12:32 PM

Hi guys,

I live and work and in the Miami/ Fort Lauderdale area and would love to meet up with you. There aren't any Rev flyers nearby (except for a couple of guys that I am teaching) so I could use the company. I agree that 75' to 80' lines are about the longest you can expect to fly, especially during the tourist season. I've been flying with 40' lines most of the time when I go to the beach. There aren't any regulations about kites that I know about but showing courtesy is always best.

Kurt,

Maybe good for ya or maybe not but I just relocated to Miami Beach and need to get the area on the Rev Map so lets get out and pound some sand!

I'll pm you my info but t be prepared......................heheheh!

Also, you should try to get up to the tampa area and fly with the Kiting Tampa Bay folks. Theyre a great bunch and love to fly at a moments notice! For example, 2/8-9/14

#93657 My thoughts on the new Diamond rods

Posted by quaa714 on 02 October 2013 - 07:47 AM

Jason,

 

I don't weigh the rods nor do I care what they weigh. For me it's about "feel" and "touch" also, "input" and "response" from my fingers to the kite and back.

 

My unsolicited and mostly feeble attempt at advice would be to forget about the weight of the rods and just go out and fly the crap out of them in many varied conditions.

 

Those are the kind of comps that should be made between different frame sets, not the frame weight alone. Read LaMaster's critiques elsewhere in the forum and talk to others who have used them in different sails and different wind conditions.

 

All of the above not withstanding.....lets fly some kites dude!

Thanks for the observation.  I hate testing to destruction so it is good to know there is some leeway.  I handed my kite with the diamond rods to an inexperieced flier last Sunday and was impressed to see him cope with team flying in low wind conditions.

 

Felix

I on the other hand, am a fan of hard core, test to destruction! its the only way to test the mettle of these bad boys!!!!




#93567 Flying at Miami Beach

Posted by quaa714 on 20 September 2013 - 12:00 PM

Felix my friend,

I am so excited to know you'll be in Miami beach!
By the time you arrive i'll be settled into my new home there.

The beach by the national is pretty wide but dominated by many beach chairs and lounges. There are areas to fly there on shorter lines, say 75 feet or so.
Worry not though, we'll have some options!

So psyched!!!
