you "hook a team" by going to the same place, on a schedule,.... then just keep repeating yourselves. Eventually folks will see you, try it, some get interested and some go so far over the top that it is considered a serious addiction. (Those are the folks you're seeking!) Someday soon, a whole club of various kite fliers will be with you and you 2 guys are the grand pookas!
As founding fathers of a new kite club it is your true purpose to spread the joys of all styles of kiting! Your particular focus is to assemble a team of quad-heads and actually look like you have done this stuff before (together!) Many pilots will come and go before you are finally satisfied, remember though,... we were all the new guys once and, the journey is more pleasurable than the destination. There are lots of ways to get there! Which route is going to become your style?
Thanks for the Encouragement.
Perth West Oz used to have a bigger stunt kite scene years ago.
It is mostly kite surfing out here now. Hopefully that will change.
Myself and West Australian crossed lines this morning and..... it was unreal. Great fun. Even had a couple of tangles but with a bit of a laugh, it took no time at all to fix. Will definitely be doing that again. We were on 80 footers as they were the longest lines we both had. Can't wait to try 120's! It was good to be it that kind of proximity of another kite. To interact with and upon another in the air is a joyous feeling. YOU WERE ALL RIGHT, it wasn't as scary as it looked. Advice for newbies, CROSS THOSE LINES!!
It sure was great fun.
Amazing how easy it was to sort out the kites.
I should be getting those long lines soon.
We just have to keep flying, we will get better at it.
I should put a mesh screen over my top lines though.
Stop you taking short cuts through there
Oh, dear.....you're hooked now..................
Enjoy the ride....
Oh yeh. I like to fly, just generally.
I try to fly every weekday infact.
But Flying with someone, just makes it so much better.
It does not matter if you are in the same patch of sky or spread out in the field.
Just having someone else out there to share it with. Sweet.....
Interacting with people at very close quarters requires absolute unwaivering control of your kite ... but it is SO worth the effort in getting to that point when you get the response from them.
I mainly do this on 30' and 50' lines, but I've done it out at 80' and 120' as well ... but the longer the lines the more you're removed from the interaction ... I like it when it's the victim volunteer, the kite AND me in the interaction.
That sounds like a lot of fun dude.
I hope to get to that level of skill one day too.
At the moment I am really trying to get as much air time as I can.
I have cut a set of 90# short Quad lines, about 32' at the moment.
I need to get some sleeving stuff to finish them though.
