architectural project; kiteboarding

Postby ellacapp » Thu Mar 25, 2010 1:29 pm

Hey,

I’m an interior design student planning a project for kiteboarders. I would like to create a mobile architecture at the kite spots – a kind of mobile showroom / mobile testcenter / scene-specific meeting point – of course at the moment it is only a fictitious project.

My professor advised me to contact a few kiters. Would you please help me answering a few questions?

1) What represents a perfect kite day / kite evening for you? What is necessary for a perfect kite day / kite evening?
2) What do you need after kite surfing? What do you need as equalization?
3) Do you miss something at the kite spots concerning the time while you are kiting?
4) Do you miss something at the kite spots concerning the time after kiting?

Thank you very much for your help.

cheers,
Ella

1) windy day, restful evening.
2) beer, videos of kiteboaridng, even better if its a video of the kiting that took place that day
3) automatic kite inflator is always nice (air tank...), kite repair area (big table?), chiropractor or stretching area, dedicated videographer
4) sound system for playing music, beer, hammock or lawn chair, bbq, big screen tv to watch kiteboarding, wifi...

oh, it would be great if we could have a kite-line, like a police line to keep onlookers at a safe distance from launching area.

elevetaed area where kitesrs can look out to where other kiters are kiting and take pictures and videos.
