Re: paulownia wood

Maybe it’s been done before but I thought it was interesting to see short pieces turned on end to make up a sheet vs’s strips:

Re: Short video of 2018 Rebel in light wind

It really was blowing 1-4mph. I can give you the persons phone number that was flying it. The Wind meter on his vehicle was also his.

Short video of 2018 Rebel in light wind

Impromptu video(portrait mode) just showing it in flight. Static flying a 10m in 1-4mph Wind and no higher then a 5-6mph “gust” measured on a ground wind meter at the location. Seems like not too long ago an average size kite would struggle to fly in that light of wind? http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Dead or dying kiteboarding companies

A tough market indeed. Any startup is going up against the established brands. Anyone getting ready to drop $1,000 on a kite wants something they know is good and has some resale.
