I'm from California, and I started flying dual-line kites in my late teens. I was a member here (but it's been so long, I've been purged from the system!!
) My boyfriend didn't really like flying, and I eventually just gave up trying to get him interested. Well, we split nearly three years ago (in May), and I have to say, I've never been happier! I've started picking up old interests again, and I came across my kites in our garage last week.
So, I went out flying, and realized I had forgotten almost everything! It took me a half hour to remember how to land (read: not crash-land) a kite! I'm still re-learning a lot (just started doing axles and turtles yesterday)... And I can now land my kites pretty reliably!
Of course, this is So. Cal, and not the part with beaches, so I'm going out solo. I don't have my old computer, so all my links for kite videos and tutorials are gone.
Could any of you point me to some really great tutorials online?
Also, if anyone's from Riverside, shoot me a PM!
