Finally starting the conversion of my (very old) Symphony Beach 2.1m circa 2013 (I think). Primarily for my 2 oldest daughters to learn to fly 4 line kites... and of course for me to play with!! They got a decent introduction last year with this kite as a 2 line at JIBE... this year it will be 4 lines. Maybe my high wind engine too :lol:

Angus sent me lines; Randy made me bridals; Im about to sew on the tabs and the handles are a special project!!!

That looks like a fun mod, spencer. Make 4 of em and get the whole family in on a routine like Team Kitelife's Facebook video Riffclown posted above. I have a feeling it would look a lot like the pileup 30 seconds in (definitely would if I were behind the wheel).

That Kitelife vid is some seriously impressive flying.

There is a trick to getting the bridles just right. They are adjustable and once you get them tweaked in the kite is just about unbeatable in the air.
A couple of videos for your enjoyment.
Time lapse from converting the kites for Team KiteLife. I add a center bridle point for those that will be stuntin with the kite.. It flies fine without it but does aid a bit in stability when the kite is inverted or flying backwards..


Here's where I put one in the hands of John Barresi for the first time.


Here's immediately after that where JB flies over for a bit of impromptu flying with Fellow team mate Scott Benz. The Dive Stop at about 1:10 is priceless.

Took it out and flew it on lunch today... lotsa fun for sure!!!

It was a fun reminder of the joy of static flying!!! This little mod has me thinking that it might be a reasonable idea for this kite to be a crazy-as-hades storm kite for the buggy.
