Well, I've been away from the forum and from flying for several years and the kite scene sure has changed! Steve is working through some serious life events (my thoughts are with you!), Kite Connection is now just another boardwalk kite shop, Blue Moon has closed it's doors, my post count reset to zero. About the only constant is John Chilese!
For the life of me, I don't even know where you could buy a Benson, R-Sky, etc. these days.
So, I'm assuming the kite arms-race has slowed a lot ... I left in the middle of the French Revolution when a new hot kite came out every other week ... is this a true statement? I wouldn't want to miss out on something fantastic, after all!
In the bag now (off the top of my head):
- Benson Minigem
- Blue Moon Mako (original)
- Blue Moon Mamba
- Level One Easy Light <-- re-framed with 2PT
- Level One Easy Vent
- Level One Level Two
- Level One Black Jack
- Level One Amazing
- R-Sky Frenezy
- Something French I can't remember ... R-Sky Krystal FX, I think?
- Aerostar Sano SS
- Andy Preston Psycho
- A couple I sewed myself. At least one turned out pretty nice.
Any new kites that I just "have to have" in this stable?
Anyway, it's good to be back!
