Hello,
  I sold a kite to a new flier in Kenton, and he is having trouble learning to fly it.  Anyone here live near Kenton and willing to spend a little time helping a newbie there?  I'll toss in a burger and a 6 pack of your favorite cold beverage...LOL

Thanks

Could definetly take a day to run up there if he would like.
What kind of kite does he have?

Hello,
  The guy bought a kite from me on that FEE based place.  For his 1st kite he bought a Premier Sidewinder from me.  He wasn't experienced with a sidewinder and from what I understand he put it together in a rush and didn't get the wing tips correct.  Long story made short is it broke a spar in flight.  I have offered to help him get it fixed as well as told him I would check here to see if there was anyone near him that would agree to help a newbie. 

Thanks

Hello Guys,
  Thank you everyone for your help and your offers.  The kites owner says he is an experienced flier and he will just send the kite back to Premier.  He has declined all offers of help.

Thanks Anyways
