Volume 10 of Kite Lines uploaded, SKQ too!

Thu Sep 07, 2006 8:39 pm


We've just added the 10th volume of Kite Lines magazine to our on line archives, bringing us to a grand total of 40 issues now available in PDF format... That's roughly 2,600 pages hand-scanned, cleaned and character-recognized for easy text searching and browsing.

As one of, if not the single best kiting magazine ever produced, Kite Lines spans from 1977 to 2000 and published an amazing variety of high quality event reports, kite plans, interviews, and much, much more.

Thanks to Valerie Govig, who has allowed us to reproduce Kite Lines and make it available free of charge via the web... Thanks also go out to Harold Ames and Felix Cartagena who have been kind enough to loan us TWO complete collections of Kite Lines for what will turn out to be roughly two years while we complete this project.

Enough talk... If you haven't read Kite Lines before, I heartily recommend it... Great history, single liners or sport kiters, your heritage can be found in these pages.

Kitelife also hosts the entire collection of Stunt Kite Quarterly (SKQ)... Published from 1988 to 1993, SKQ provided specialized sport kite coverage and scores during sport kiting's hey day.

If you appreciate projects such as these, please consider becoming a Kitelife Subscriber... There are a few worthwhile perks for you, and it helps us a great deal.
