"Lets Go Fly a Kite"

I can't take it any more. The winds have been perfect the last two days or so and I hear them, and my two string stunt calling, begging for me to take advantage of the conditions.

Yep. I'm into flying kites. I have several kinds, boxes, deltas, airfoils but my latest and so far favorite is my two string stunt kite. This is the kind of kite that you can actually manipulate to do loops, fly in vertical or horizontal lines. It's pretty damn nifty (mine is exactly like the one in the picture).

I'm still learning but it's a lot more fun than you remember as a kid. This kind of kite does the the things you wish your plastic, Snoopy kite could do when and if you ever got it in the air.

That's it, my small airfoil and stunt kite it is... We ride!

Have fun! This past weekend was beautiful and it seemed like everyone brought their kites out of hibernation. I haven't flown one since I was a kid, but it was fun :)

Oh that's cool! I haven't flown a kite since I was a kite, but it always brings a smile to my face to see one flying through the air on a summer day.

There are too many trees where I live to fly a kite. :( Have fun!

I highly recommend getting out and flying one. It is strangely relaxing. And it makes you feel like a kid again.

Mejis: Sorry about the trees. Perhaps you can find yourself a big enough park with a good clearing.
