Title: Nice Wind, Sort Of.
Post by: chilese on November 23, 2013, 03:13 PM
Currently in Las Vegas:

Winds NW at 6 mph.

However,

47F and raining.

Not that I haven't flown in the rain before:

John Gillespie and David Barnby at Shoreline 2003, although the EFIX data says Dec 4, 2002.

The kites on the left and bottom are slick looking kites.  Bottom looks like a TOTL not sure on the left one.

isn't the one on the right a Wayne Knott/Dreamweaver Kites model?
Maybe a Sahara? Ronin? I'm not sure, Wayne had quite a few limited run kite models, but those look like his style of graphics.

Yea that has to be a Dreamweaver.  Knott did a lot of unicorn kites :P  I loved the dreamweaver I had but hated the rainbow unicorn.  Made a little girl happy back then though :)

I still have 3 or 4 Masquerades, wonder what happened to Wayne Knott?

His masque was one of my all time favs out of all of them. A really good kite once you learned its dance moves. If i ever get done paying my dentist off and you want to sell one I'd be interested.  I'd offer a trade but most of my kites are waiting on rods since a kid did a back flop on my kite bag at the last fly session.
