We've now got a pair of basic starter kites to show the public at festivals that pair-flying can be fun without necessarily requiring expensive kites. Blog post here if you're interested.

This is a fabulous idea. Ive flown pairs with beginner kites and think it really can be a whole lot of fun, especially with the right equipment. We've also had crazy success reframing the Premier Vision with P90s to make them lighter and more responsive for the same reasons, and also in stacks. Keep doing what you do!!!

It's all about somehow transmitting that element of fun and inspiring people to have a go. Rock solid precision can come at a later stage, but you won't get to that stage without that first step of just having fun. And we have every intention to keep doing what we are doing!
