(Based on the tried and true knowledge that a new kite purchase creates the perfect conditions to fly a kite of inversely proportional charactistics)

Tom it's a little hard to interpret, I can't work out whether you bought a SUL, Foil, UL, and then Vented... or was it QPro VV, Vapor, Micron, Tensor, 4D...

That there Tom is a kite god saying you have bought to many kites (in what appears to be a 1 hour time frame), if that's the case then it's your fault, you provided a 'kite acquirers environmental perfect storm' KAEPS);)

Clear as day to me :)

Out the window, while I ply away on an edit...

Wind is harder to get than a lotto win here also, getting about 15 mins to 1/2 hour a week of flying if I'm lucky :( and as a very rusty flyer, it's not helping...

My VF 18 entry is in, so I'm now just wishing I could 'upgrade' it.

As with most entrants I guess, I would love another go at it...  ;D

Tom
there was a day a week (maybe 10 days) ago that I got out to the hill... actually surprised I didn't see you there filming.  it was muddy and wind was all over the place, but when isn't it.

There's nothing wrong with flying in a driving rain, the kite needs a fresh water bath every once in a while... The lines bind up easier, the kite flies a little heavier, but it's the same otherwise.

We that and when you say you nailed a new trick though you can't prove it people can say your all wet and it would be true :P
