ODSKC 2009 is right around the corner, and to start things off, we're going to raffle off chances for you to win one of the hottest new kites out there, the Saber by Will Sturdy. At this point, lots of folks know about Will as a flier. In just a few years, he's established himself as one of the best fliers in the Eastern League, moving up to Masters in 3 years time. He was also the AKA 2008 EIB champion, and his virtual freestyle entries from the last 2 years have been universally praised.
DID YOU KNOW that Will is also a champion kitebuilder? Will's designed several kites over the past few years, and his latest design, the Saber, was the AKAGN 2008 kitebuilding champion in the sport kite category. The Saber is an awesome kite - great precision, and it's got every trick in the book pre-loaded and ready to go. Here are some pictures:http://www.flickr.com/photos/22809394@N08/page2/
The top row shows the Saber in it's latest graphic layout. I saw the red, blue, and green Sabers flying team this weekend and let me tell you, they look super sharp in the air!
To show what the Saber is capable of, check out this video from the last Virtual Freestyle 12:Will Sturdy Virtual Freestyle 12]VF 12: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XW_u7LoxHE#lq-lq2-hq]Will Sturdy Virtual Freestyle 12

1. Go to http://www.richmondairforce.com/ODSKC/index.htm
