In the name of Extreme Kites, I will cut a path through the crowd with Century twos.

Expect to have all 4 of your kite lines shortened by some small kid flying a $5 kite.

Kiddy kite line (nylon/dacron, fishing line!!) has a much higher melting point than spectra.

I look forward to seeing you try. :popcorm1:

 

"Hey Alexander, Daddy's got some new kevlar line for you to use on your piggy kite." :grin:

Pay no attention to Nigel - he's letting facts get in the way of an awesome story.  Anywhoo - keep the Century two LOW and avoid all the other kite lines.  Anyone remember the opening scene from Ghost Ship ?? :grin:  Warning, the following video is NOT suitable for children or the sensitive...

I guess Joel's static buggy display will suit Nigel with his tyre fork clearance issues... Lol.

I was actually only joking regarding charging through crowds....

In the 90's, I did have my top lines cut on a beach while buggying with a 6m Quadrifoil because I didn't see a kid's kite on a long line. It was interesting how quickly the lines melted. It looked as if the the lines had run into a knife blade.

Back in those days, we would braid the lines back together.

I hope to be there for the fun..an excuse to fly single line kites.

And all will be in awe, listening to them sing :)

Love the way your lines always whistle.

Nigel sorted his kites while Alex and I were out this morning and when we got home Alex had to make sure that his kites had been packed for the festival.

For anyone with kids there is a kite making workshop at the Rosebud Plaza on Saturday from 10.30 - 2.30

Looks like some challenging weather for us fliers. :popcorm2:

Offshore winds......

...... 3m lines just became 30m lines :D 

All good, the pilot kites will be up on at least 75m lines if last year is anything to go by.
