I just bought a 6' delta wing stunt kite, pretty cool to mess around with on a windy day. Anyone else have any kites?

I fly revolution kites they are 4 line stunt kites
they have solid sail and vented sail for all wind conditoins.
and 2 3 4 wrap carbon frames they also offer race frames that flexes a bit more for no wind flying.
note these kites can be flown in watter.
check out the video on youtube.

I've got a couple of power kites I play with. I used it a bit this summer to pull myself up & down the river in a kayak. fun stuff.
I stunt with them too.

A revolution kite is in my future, hopefully next spring.

Here's my favorite Rev video, this here is what I want to do.
He gets it a little wet, and manages to pull it out. Great stuff

yeah, my next kite is gonna be 4- stringer. There's only so much you can do with a 2- string.

The Power Kites I fly now do everything a 2 string stunt kite can do except slack line tricks.

I would really like to get into Kite Surfing one of these days... that's an expensive hobby too!

Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!

i've been kiting for quite a few years i mostly use peter lynn arcs
8meter venom
10 meter scorpion
13 and 16 meter venom 2
i also have a couple 4 lines on handles for buggying and
static fun .
i preffer kite skiing man that's a rush anyone who enjoys down hill skiing will never again want to wait in line for chair lifts.
you hook up the kite and power bar to your harness and off you go....
you can ride ,jump do what ever you feel like for as long as you want.
well untill the wind dies or you get so tired you can't stand
i use skis but lots of snowboards have a go at it.
summer time i use a special board that verry simular to a wake board.
also have trail skates wich i've face planted a feew times hehehe
and a buggy for windy days that you can also convert on skis ..
it's a cool sport for every season all you need is wind (that's free)
here a feew cool sites

I only have a 1.9 - 2 metre span 2 string delta wing stunt kite, but it's fun for those windy occasions In fact I did buy another 2-string kite but have not flown it yet - the local Soccer Sports?? shop was selling NO FEAR stunt kites for £5.99 so for that price I had to get one to try. My other kite was £25
