Kite flyers in Ireland? Anyone?

Wed Jul 28, 2021 6:16 pm

Hi.
I am new here. I have moved to the NW of Ireland 15 years ago. To my sad surprise, I can't find anyone to fly with here. No clubs, no forum.
I am originally from France where the community is quite big and enthusiastic.
Anyone knows of any leads to people or groups or forums based in Ireland (or Northern Ireland), please?
Million thanks for your help.
F.

Sorry no help to offer (do not live in Ireland). Just out of curiosity, what are the French kite forums? If I knew their name(s) I might have a quick google translate assisted look on them (since my French from school is quite weak). Or perhaps you meant real local people in 3D :-) ?

Hi
Thanks for the reply.
I didn't quite understand that part, though :
"Or perhaps you meant real local people in 3D Image ?"
Regarding French forums, there are a few :

http://www.lecerfvolant.info/forum/
http://photocerfvolant.free.fr/phpBB2/ (KAP)
https://miztral.com/www/index.php
https://pndt.forumsactifs.com/forum
A good German one :
https://www.drachenforum.net/
I guess, if you ask the members, they might give you more addresses.
Enjoy.

Thank you very much for the links – Have never been around looking on French kite forums before. Looking on the threads/topics “votre dernière session de vol” (2-lines. “Your latest session”) and “votre dernière session de vol 4 lignes” seem to be the topics with the most posts. Perhaps something for Fractured axel to mimic? A “low bar” topic, yet something that could initiate a discussion. To make it interesting and educational perhaps recommending sharing any new insights from that session or simply what (e.g. trick) one is currently working on.

For sharing images in “Au fil de vent” servimg.com seems popular (Servimg.com terms of use, privacy: “All information provided by the user is strictly confidential. Servimg reserves the right to release user information … if Servimg deems it necessary or appropriate.”…).

And the 3D persons? Simply that that local kite pilots (if you are lucky to have any in your vicinity) are “in 3D”, while text and people on kite forums and kite videos appear on a screen and are thus in 2D…

(Sorry that I dropped out of this conversation for… a couple of weeks)
