Merry Christmas everyone. Here’s an early gift from me to you all…
Yesterday, I looked out of the window and noticed that the light rain was falling onto the snow on the ground, it was below freezing and the fog was lingering because there was no wind. Of course, the first thought to cross my mind was “let’s go kiting”!!! So I did, and it took the opportunity to give my Benson DeepSpaceUL an outing, for only the second time. The more I fly this kite, the more I like it. Despite being a true UL, it carries tremendous momentum through flat-spin moves and you can really hit it hard. Actually, flying in almost no wind at all opened up some interesting possibilities – notice the opening sequence where I break the first rule of kiting, and launch the kite upwind of me!
So here it is – I hope you like it, and that you all have a great Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
