  1. In other words Paul, the Dennis Smith Champion's bag pickup/drop off point is where we will find you waiting patiently for Mr Smiths arrival!
  2. Hmmm, There may be.....I'll have to ask Sammy. It was Dugard and me flying and Sammy being a little.......well anyway There was a lot of damage done that day to a certain lime green B series and Dugard did some cool on field bridle repairs in a howling wind and rain. Of course we were giggling the whole time!!!!
  3. @Steven....Hey pal! I said ability, not idiocy.....but then again there was there was this one 9-11 memorial fly at LSP.................!
  4. All this talk about wind range is at its core, irrelevant. Pilot ability is what ultimately flies any kite........ Just saying...........
  5. Someone pls hook Carolyn up with a couch or better yet a bed. She deserves more than anyone I know, to be at WW having a kickass time. If I was going to be there I would, so somebody please fill in for me and help Carolyn with a bed to crash in!!!!!!
  6. Yes they do!!!!! Be more reckless....push the envelope..... BTW, Try those diamond rods in a 75% Shook weave...... After you clean up the drool, drop a line and tell us what you thought!!!!!
  7. Excellent news Felix. I now return to Miami on the 5th so the 6th and beyond sound good. Can prolly go right out on the beach behind your hotel and fly there no problem. Safe travels and warm breezes my friend! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Excellent Felix! I'll be back home the eve of the 4th so the 5th and beyond works well. Where are you guys staying? It may be as simple as going right on the beach by where you're staying. Let me know and we'll get it sorted out! As for what to bring, bring what makes you comfortable but you're welcome to borrow from my bag anything you might need. Looking forward to seeing you!
  9. I should be around and will def fly with ya.....BTW, who is this? We can fly over by Haulover pier. Bring 75' lines.....any longer and your choices to fly are severely limited. What kite to bring......one that flies of course! You can fly anything you want out of my bag if you don't want to stress about it. Otherwise, bring a full sail, a mid vent and a full vent......variety, right? Or again, fly OPK!!!!!!!!! PM me and we can discuss logistics, etc...... I'm still meeting new pilots down here and will try to wrangle them to come fly with us!
  10. Swannie & Kurt.......... I'm good to fly either Saturday or Sunday this weekend!
  11. I love and appreciate the "audio" perspective of your comparison! Haahhah
  12. Pretty much any beach you can get to is a good option!!!!! Also Haulover Park in North Miami is a good go to as well! Near as I can tell there are no restrictions on beach flying. I'd suggest 75' lines. Sadly I am out of town most of next week so no chance for us to fly but reach out to Kurt Cira on the board here; he can probably steal a couple hours to fly!
  13. Hey Eli, I'm a regular in Columbia as my son is a student there at USC. Unfortunately I won't be there at the same time you are. Lemme know where you end up flying in the area as I have not had the chance to explore there.
  14. Kurt, Maybe good for ya or maybe not but I just relocated to Miami Beach and need to get the area on the Rev Map so lets get out and pound some sand! I'll pm you my info but t be prepared......................heheheh! Also, you should try to get up to the tampa area and fly with the Kiting Tampa Bay folks. Theyre a great bunch and love to fly at a moments notice! For example, 2/8-9/14
  15. Hahahahahaha.....that didn't take long!
  16. Jason, I don't weigh the rods nor do I care what they weigh. For me it's about "feel" and "touch" also, "input" and "response" from my fingers to the kite and back. My unsolicited and mostly feeble attempt at advice would be to forget about the weight of the rods and just go out and fly the crap out of them in many varied conditions. Those are the kind of comps that should be made between different frame sets, not the frame weight alone. Read LaMaster's critiques elsewhere in the forum and talk to others who have used them in different sails and different wind conditions. All of the above not withstanding.....lets fly some kites dude!
  17. I on the other hand, am a fan of hard core, test to destruction! its the only way to test the mettle of these bad boys!!!!
  18. Excellent! Maybe we can wrangle Jay Nunes, kelly and the rest of the Tampa crew to come down and play with us!!!!
  19. Felix my friend, I am so excited to know you'll be in Miami beach! By the time you arrive i'll be settled into my new home there. The beach by the national is pretty wide but dominated by many beach chairs and lounges. There are areas to fly there on shorter lines, say 75 feet or so. Worry not though, we'll have some options!
