Topics I've Started

in the air again

01 January 2011 - 10:41 PM

After 15 years leave of absence, I am flying again.

Gave myself an SUL and mid vented B for Christmas, thanks to an American friend.
Used my old 10", rev 1 handles at first.

These are some photos trying out some handles my father in law made
17" handles, talk about twitchy!
I performed some stunts I have never seen before and would prefer not to see again.
But the kite recovered beautifully in mid air.

If only I could remember to pull on the brake lines rather than let them go when it is hurtling leading edge down into the sand.

Plenty of catching up to do.

The wind built up over the afternoon so both sails got an airing.
