Not very technical, but had a good moment or two :)

 

 

 




#94016 It's Here!

I guess that you have mastered it by now, but for someone that can relate to your experience, here it goes:

 

Reminds me of my first flight! A good practice for starters, before you get flying, is to set the kite upwards in launch position (bottom part of the kite needs to come a bit closer, not to self launch, explained in the dvd). The handles should be in a fixed position using a screwdriver or something. Lines straight, untangled. Move back from the kite, hold the handles so that the upper lines are stretched out. Now pull the kite just a little bit, lines streched, evenly, (this is the part to discover if your lines are ok). Then, move your hands just a little bit forward to strech off the upper lines a few inches. Remain still in this position. Feel the wind for a short period of time, feel how it blows the sail, then feel it in the lines stretching and unstretching as it goes. If you remain still for a few minutes, you can get an idea of the gentle ammount of force the wind gives, and the gentle ammount of force you are called to apply as to have control.

 

My first flight ended up just like yours because I would generally apply off positions to my wrists, without proper feel of the wind, always overcorrecting. With a little ammount of practice as described above you will get the feel of the wind, which is the most important. Remember that the wind is the main force applied on the kite. Then practice a few gentle take offs and lands. This part is all you need to learn so that your kite won't crash right or left.

 

Wish you happy times of flying, and all the best for your grand daughter!

A beautiful sea & mountain country, warm, you get to fly under the sun for long spans of sunny days that last from March until December.  The winds are of good quality for kiting, as are for every kite and other wind related sport. During the winter, we can find a lot of mountain tops and snow resorts that keep the fun rolling.

 

We are playing in the mountains and beaches around the country. Detailed info that you can check, or a way to contact us, can be found in our facebook page, there is a telephone number also.

 

About the wind quality we are checking this website that provides raw wind data:
