I don't know how much this has been pointed out in the past but since I have not seen it anywhere else...
Have you ever felt that kite flying has more to do with controlling a fish in water rather than some flying device?
In the month and a bit that I have been flying stunt kites I have the feeling of seeing a colorful angelfish swooshing across a liquid medium in front of me.
The feeling is more liquid than airy.
I think it is a great albeit strange feeling.
