Amazingly I'm finally going to a "proper" kite festival in Berck this year! Looking forward to seeing everything - looks amazing. Strangely I'm actually wondering if I should take some kites in case there is a location for public flying, or if I should just leave them at home and enjoy the experts.

Take kites there's plenty of room on the beach, when the tides out.

I shall take some kites then :-) But I intend to do more watching than flying.

Got back from Berck yesterday - I had a lovely time. Watched the team flying demos, did some flying on the beach, loved the night flying and generally enjoyed being there. I just wish I could get to do some Rev team flying - but until I find another Rev flyer around here AND make some time I guess I will just have to dream :-)

If anyone is interested here is a short video I put together:
