Venom by Kites Up wanted

Tue Sep 26, 2017 12:55 pm

We would like a second Venom by Roy of Kites Up 

They were made quite a while ago and I bought this one at the kite addiction at Storey Annes kite festival this year. We're having fun flying it and are starting to fly a pairs routine using kites of a similar speed but very different in looks.

Interesting looking kite - not seen that one before. A little like the Utopia.

Nice!

Good luck with the search. Could Roy just make you a new one perhaps?

Definitely Utopia-esque, but different. Curious how it flies; turns on a dime?

I have been in touch with Hayley at Kites Up about the kite. Roy has a cold at the moment but if there is a kite out there for sale it will save time as we are going to Fuerteventura Kite Festival and would like to take the two kites with us. 
We flew mine at a very windy St  Annes kite festival the day after I bought it at the auction. Great fun and it behaved well.

To Flying Fish
The kite tracks very well, very steady flyer, pulled like a train in the high wind, behaved well in the perfect wind last week and Hayley said it would trick as well. 
Here's hoping for a second one soon

Fingers crossed, Sue. I've never come across one, but am getting more interested in the kite, given its unusual construction. Have also talked to Hayley, and if they take up making Venoms again, I wouldn't rule out one or two going 'fishy'. Obviously you've got first dibs!

Hayley sent me samples of the chikara colours that they have available, and we're having a hard time narrowing down options for a pair of Venoms. Looking at having the 'triangle' in a different colour from the main sail :)
