Speaking of Hawaiians, anybody seen the Hawaiian by Kite Factory? It's a nearly exact duplicate in 1/3 size or so - 34" wingspan. Haven't flown mine yet but the coolness factor was well worth the $10.98  Cool

Mike, kiteking you need a stack of these  Wink

I do have 2 Hawaiian team kites (one from early on I added the whisker kit and one re-make from this year) Haven't stacked them yet.

I would love to get a line on the ones from Kite Factory

I've got a couple too, in the original cheveron pattern.  I always fly them stacked. Its really fun and you feel like you're holding onto a lot!  Noteworthy, I never do this in strong winds......  I'lll do it inland if the winds are fairly light, but I mostly save that nonsense for trips to the beach Cheesy

IIRC, it was first called a 3/4 Team Hawaiian and later a Maui.

That had a name... what was it called?

A Maui? Can't remember..

...and how about a 3/4 Team Hawaiian?

HA!
Anyone who can ID this little 3/4 Hawaiian..or who ever owned one...is really kinda----------Datin' themselves as old kite-koot-krazzeeee's....especially even the mention of DON TABOR'S  Grin Smiley
bye the way...that little 3/4 was a HAMMERIN' WIND DEMON IN STRONG WINDS...A REAL HOOT N' A HALLER...Speaking of HALLER''Those little kites were really noisy little screamin WIND DEMONS..
(humm? WIND DEMON...humm? another high wind small kite by KATHY GOODWIND that reaaaaaaaaaaallly HAMMERED THE HIGH WINDS with style and profile.
(I still have beefed up tri-wrapped Wind Demon somewhere in my old kite bag that holds all my memories of the good ol daze. Lips sealed

I spent an afternoon with a Wind Demon in high beach winds, once I put my Spectra lines on it it provided one of the most memorable days flying I've ever had. What a fun little kite  Smiley  senility will probably be erasing those memories soon though  Wink

Nevanuff...Hawaiiiiiiiian Team Kites
My old # 13 Sail...still looks like a new one..after all these years. This old kite used to scare the S--!!!! out of his old Dad when my young son would ride it down the beach behind his water skiis.

This old photo from 1991?

Back in the day, a friend of mine stacked 12 Hawaiians. If you could fly it for at least 5 minutes unassisted, with rolls, (in 10-15 mph) you got a very cool tee shirt. That thing was a total animal. Many tried and failed.  Cry

I bought 3 of them at Toys R Us, but these mini Hawaiian Team kites  need serious work if you want to fly them as a stack. The bridles aren't set at all accurately on any of the 3 I have and the fiberglass rod frames are really noodley.

Yeah and I think an upper spreader would benifit them in the "Noodley" dept., the bridles are trash but I'd like to get a few more and stack them JFS&G

Sketch, nice, but not quite "New", that hot pink nylon fades even if never exposed to the sun  Sad

I don't have any digital pic's, but I have a color matched pair, Team & Spin-Off. Purely by luck.

Don Tabor was known to be a generous man and at the end of 1989 he ran this little add (see below) in the back of Kite Lines Magazine. I contacted them and requested a Spin-Off sail in "Warm" colors to compliment my Team when the winds were low. A few weeks later a Spin-Off Deluxe sail showed up in the mail in the exact colors as my Team. One almost unnoticible flaw where the coating of the fabric showed a little white streak about 3 inches long by 1/16 wide. I framed it as an ultra light using glaspar .298's and added stand-offs.

dMy first real stunt kite was a Hawaiian Maui, the 3/4 version.  Great kite, in fact I still have it with all of its .2400 pultruded rods.
