Do these prices include shipping?

No but I can reduce the shipping right down if you are interested in both

Maybe sleeving a rod at the bottom edge of the flag? Has this been tried before?

I'm going through the same issue with my 30x50 flag. A weight on the lower leading edge will work the best, however the flag may need more weight than the lifter can handle. In that case, a line attached to the flying line and to a sandbag or some other weight on the ground would work. The flag would be flown from this line.

Hello!

I have a large (25' wide?) US flag.  When attaching to the line of a lift kite, the flag drops/curls on the bottom so it doesn't fly "cleanly" / straight / square.  Photos:

Anyone have any suggestions for keeping the bottom inline?  I thought about attaching an offset line to the bottom and middle, back to the main line.  Or, some sort of weight.  Or, add a thin stiff wire along the far edge?

Thank you for any for any pointers!

The other Las Vegas kite store, A Wind of Change closed.

Of course, before WindPower was in Vegas, it was in Monterey. That store was epic...



Windborne kites Monterey

Catch the wind, Steve Lamb had stores all along the Oregon Coast

Catch the Wind may have been largely responsible for the surge in kiting during the 1980's, at least on the north west coast. They were on the beach so often with fantastic kites and their windsocks (line laundry). It was all new to most people and they put it in front of countless people. Gomberg bought the last store and brought the last remnant under his wing.
