Last year's activities were one of the best single day kiting agendas I've ever been associated with,... you should plan on attending, if at all possible!



Thanks for the Zen

I received a replacement Zen a few weeks ago.  Man it is such a slick addition to my kite bag!  Lolly, Ben, Bazzer and Eliot all had a hand in crafting it to my exact requirements.  The darn thing is such a pleasure to fly, because I have expanded the wind range to comfortably use it in double digits and still kept all of that fabulous low-end performance.


It's a 3-D monster too, a killer glide (at least 3-1/2 or 4 times the altitude), axels can be timed with a sun-dial, it rolls up into the string on the ground, unrolls and is just too easy to fly regardless of the conditions.  I know why I wore out the first one, this kite gets used and abused as it's almost always the perfect choice for my local conditions.


Anyway, I just got back from Swift Current (Windscape kit fest) and the Zen carried me like a burro once again!  When others were not thrilled with the morning's conditions, I was like a kid in a candy store.  Sunday was too windy to even assemble it (so basically, they didn't need me at all that day!)


Friday night and Saturday morning though,.....  I dragged a full bag stuffed with Revs and only used this one kite!  90 feet of 90#LPG on 15 inch no snags.


Mine isn't stock and the differences in flight/feel/durability/tricking are profound, at least it is exactly what I expected.  Other Zen owners are the ones who are surprised.


Again, thank you to all who touched or had a hand in my kite's creation, you are GREAT and so are your efforts!
