Really nice album!!!
I left before they got the big Manta out of the tree, or did they get it out of the trees?

I didn't get a chance to talk to the owners of those beautiful foils with the beach scenes and fish line laundry.  Didn't see them there on Sunday :(  They were spectacular an added a lot to the show.

The owner of the Manta got a 24 hr parking pass from the city so he could stay overnight with the kite. The city was set to help him get the kite out of the tree on Mon. If they had come out on Sunday, it would have been overtime and been charged to the owner.

Those are custom 100 sq ft Skyhooks made by Martin Blais. I’ll have them at the Ocean Beach Kite festival and if there is anything happening in Seal Beach this year, they’ll be there.

Reckoned it must have been you, Paul, from the selection of trick kites in JC's pics.

Great photos! They make want to make the trip! I've never been to a kite festival because of the expense with a family. Now that one is out on his own and the other going to be a senior in college next year I'll have to start thinking about it.

The closest one is in NJ in May (Wildwood?) though KONE might have some good events. Anyone know anything about NYKE?

My wife says I don't need all 20 odd kites I have (xt.r set, Nirvana set, DS, MiniGem). I might have to sell some to get one of the Blue Moon Ichibans or a Reprise.

@CharlesG, thanx for the info.  I look forward to seeing them again.  I haven't heard anything about the Seal Beach thing.  As you know it has been a pretty informal gathering for a while now.  I may make it to the Ocean Beach event, not sure about that.

@ BobD, Hi Bob.  The Wildwood festival is of course a big one and certainly worth attending if you can.  But that being said I would encourage you to see if you can find a local event just to see what you think and maybe add to your knowledge base regarding what field equipment etc. would make you comfortable and hopefully make your wife comfortable too.  To state the obvious, if you can make kiting "family fun" it's a plus.  My wife has become my biggest supporter and best "kite crew." As far as the NYKE I know nothing about them but I do know that for me at least the socialization aspect of kiting is part of the fun and there is usually something to be learned from fellow kiters.

Very nice. I work on that launch to fade every time I fly except on the PDSUL. I have used probably a 1/2 small bottle of c gel on c clips trying to flip close to the ground like that. Not kidding. Get it fairly often now but sure not that pretty. Very encouraging.
