We might consider broadening the interest base by combining with freestyle yo-yo.  That should get the public interested.  Roll Eyes  A whole new sports class "string events".

Hi Mr. O.

Hello Allen.  I pop in once every 3-4 months or so. Still flying foils and kite land boarding but my dualies haven't seen much of the light of day for a few years now saving the time we spend on the Cape during the summer.

Was the smoke smell a problem at customs? Cool

Why was Mr. Nasty so nasty?


Because he was on rec.kites, of course. Why not?

Get this. He turned up in a thread about the AKA on Facebook recently, and while not really nasty, he was kinda grumpy and opinionated. Gave me a warm fuzzy nostalgic feeling.  Smiley Smiley Smiley
