It's the same as power kiting, you wake up one morning with an empty wallet, and a month later this shows up. about 31'x15.5' so how many sq meters?

Thanks Randy, I might have ordered 20m. She said she sold a 20m to some frenchman and I said oh yeah.
The green one above was about 11.5x22'. They fly on 550# or 1200# if it starts to sing to me.

I keep saying I need a single line day but, if it's good enough for SL it's worth a try with the bug so it doesn't get done. :(

FYI
A few of us are buggying at or near Ocean Shores, Washington this weekend.
So If anyone is on the fence... you'll have company.
I'm pretty sure Jed wants to set up a race course again:wee::wee::wee:

It's the composite rods that give you trouble.

Does it come with the uniform and a full head of hair?

Having done some Squiring for Windstruck I can attest that when "tips flow" they are often in the form of flowing tips [mmm Adult Beverages mmmm]



NASA wings -1 to 12m [mostly KM4]
Foils -2 -12m [mostly PL & Pansh]

Nice looking kites Ed. How does the trilobite fly? What size is it? Did you get it direct from china or from a US store?
Thanks for sharing.
