Anyone flying at Upton Court Park this weekend

Hi there,
Just wondering if anyone is flying over Upton Court Park on Sunday that might be able to offer some advise and tips on setting up and flying my HQ Montana depower 9.5m.

Maybe I can help. I don't fly depower foils and have not used a HQ Montana but if it's advice on basic set up, flying and tips then I could help you with that.
I'm not too far away from you ( Lingfield, Surrey ) but I'm busy this weekend and I need to be close to home. There is a small field not 5 minutes from my house where you can try otherwise you might try for a better response on kitecrowd as that is predominantly a UK forum.

Hi Redsky
Thank you for your response. Ideally I am after an experienced depower pilot to pass on their advise and wisdom to a depower newbie but I still fly my non-depower kites if ever you want to meet up for some recreational flying/landboarding some time.

Redsky is being humble Barnes. He is a great depower pilot but uses lei's not foils.

You're too kind Sean. (I have deposited $20 into your PayPal account as agreed)


Sorry barnes4884 my fault. I did not explain properly. I do not fly depower foils currently. I predominately fly kitesurfing kites so called LEI's which are also depower.

I'm not going to be much use to you this weekend I'm afraid as I'm holding a garage sale of my kites and gear. :(

If its landboarding tuition you're after then you'd do much better to meet with someone who has experience of both. That would be the way to go imo.

I'll gladly help you in anyway I can. I fly at Purley Way, Croydon off Jnc 6 M25. Message me or email MulliganAk47@gmail.com

:)

I contacted him on kitecrowd and we'll try and meet up sometime soon.

Thanks ssayre

Ah I see, your too modest Tom. I'd still like to take a drive over to Purley Way one weekend when you might be over there to say hello and perhaps you can guide me through the process of correctly trimming a depower foil/LEI to its full potential for the conditions on the day.

No problem, I'd be happy to help. I love Purley so that suits me fine. I hope the wind picks up soon.

Thank you Tom, me too. Liking your youTube video of "Purley Way by Air" as well. Well put together and edited.

Love your "Power Kite Humiliation" youtube vid as well. I'm all to familiar with getting dragged round the park by my Blade as well lol
