I saw the link on the AKA site, seldom mentioned here on the forum.
A year ago the link back to PKF was the only real info on the power kite section of the education tab. Alas the link is gone now, probably liability or lack of a reciprocal link here?

I guess green kites fly okay, my twister was green (probably still is) and would have made Mr Lynn proud. :thumbup:

Anyway here's a link to some archived news letters

Mood: Get in my buggy!

I get Mr. Lynn's newsletter each month via email. He is a highly cerebral dude and can opine a plenty at times on issues that vex him on the world stage. These newsletters have very little to do with kiting interestingly enough. He is actually quite (Ayn) Rand like in his approach to things, something in many ways right up my alley.
