Feels like I’m kind of borrowing this thread, not being very active in FA, but hey, kiting is kiting, knowledge is knowledge and OPKs are OPKs
Posted in KL and FA:
I’ll be in Sidmouth (in the SE part of Devon, UK) for two weeks starting Sunday 22nd of July. If anyone would happen to be in the area and/or know a good field within an hours bus trip from there (I have no access to a car during the period) and like to share the sky and kite knowledge, please let me know. I have done a fair amount of kite practice there on previous visits, but access to beaches/fields is a bit wind, people, tide and cow dependent, especially when not using short lines. But hey, it is a beautiful village/surroundings. And nope, I’ll miss out (going home when it starts) on the nearby Exmouth kite festival.
For some years I have been doing DLKs (yes (with a decent success rate): axels, landings, card flips, sleeping beauty (if the ground and wind is OK), 540, axel cascade, lazy susans, FA to fade…; learning: flick flacks; no (way José): comets, back spins, taz machine…). A year ago I started with Revs and have for the last year (winter and summer) been doing Revs (B-series “no”/mid/full vent and recently a Rev Indoor) 75% of the time (and Smithi Pro quad). The reason for the large share of the Rev was to be prepared for NKM ( http://kites.aerialis.no/memories-from-the-nkm18/
) and now because I’m going to the John Barresi Danish quad clinic in Copenhagen in September.
