did you get started in power kiting:
Started with a call to powerkiteshop back
in the early days. I soon had myself sorted with a four liner
and not really looked back since!!
equipment do you use:
High performance four line foils, guinness,
buggy do you use:
Standard Flexifoil Buggy
have you been doing the past year:
Loads of practice, Getting out there as
often as possible giving help and advice where needed to the incredible
amounts of newcomers to the sport.
plans do you have for this year:
More practice, advanced flatland to aerial
tricks are the next on the list as well as more and more promotion
of the sport as a whole.
Its got to be Lytham St Annes for the sheer
size of it and inland would have to my local learning ground of
Sutton Park in the West Midlands.
What would you recommend as a first
time kite buggier who wanted to enter into the sport, what kite
and buggy would you recommend and why:
The most important thing to recommend for
anybody getting into the sport is that kite skills must come first.
You really have got to be just flying the kite for at least 3
to 6 months before you even decide on a buggy. It makes for a
safer more experienced flier in the long run. Theres enough to
learn just flying the kite, add on top of that learning to buggy,
board or even surf and the challenge really starts to add up.
Take your time and enjoy the learning process.
kind of tricks do you like to do?
The ones other people cant do ;)
surface do you prefer for buggying?
Hard sand or wet grass for some spins!
do you think the sport will grow?
I can see the sport becoming more and more
mainstream, maybe dedicated centres to enable ban free flying.
is your best session to date?
Every session is the best, its always good
to get out and about. There's always something memorable after
every days flying!!
you received any injuries from power kiting?
else you want to say?
