First Flight


Today was my first time flying depower.
I picked up an 8m hq apex from Tom last week, but I had to wait for a harness to come in to test it out.
Also, I ended up deciding on a Dakine Chameleon for a harness, which came just in time for today's light 6-8mph winds. It was a perfect test flight, just enough wind to get the kite moving and give me some pull if I worked it in the powerzone. I'm pretty excited to test this kite out in some better winds and get into this breed of kite!

Looking to get into snowkiting this winter, which I have heard it is a great kite for, but I want to test it out for off-road kiteblading once I find the room for it
