That was interesting, shame the flying up the common tailed off, I did used to enjoy the trips up there, I wasn’t a regular but did manage a couple of days a month. I also raced model yachts, and that took over really.
I have recently wonder if a local kite shop would work, it couldn’t be a shop as such, would have to be online, don’t think kiting would support rent and rates etc. I think most kite shops went down the line of power kites and kite surfing, They dropped the stunt kites and single line stuff due to lack of interest. there are a few specialising in powerkites, but not many on the smaller stuff.
