Supernova Sundays

Devin Cobleigh-Morrison

Slowly getting to know the Supernova UL in a small space, in blustery wind. A full size kite on a playset isn't ideal, but anything is possible. Kept it careful and tried to keep it clean. More ambitious things for another challenge.

Submitted this video in hopes that novice/intermediate skilled flyers can feel a sense of reassurance that not everything flying is perfect and it is ok to show your flaws and learn from them. Plain and simple Kites are Fun!! Remember a bad day of flying is always better than any day at work!

This is just some happy flying in pretty stable onshore winds, just (trying to) interpret the music as it comes. Nothing prepared, just going with the music. :-)

The Dragon to battle the Coronavirus

Dorothy Guch

Head is 3D printed, sails are surgical masks, split bamboo spars, put together with cotton fly line, shoe goo and tape. This was a group effort with my son, Andrew, doing the head, and my husband, Andrei, for splitting the bamboo, stringing, and bridling, and I provide the idea, masks, made the tassels from the mask ties, and sparred it. It probably would of flown if we had any wind, but we are on the prairies and it is calm today.

'Cool'

Angus Johnstone

This was the first word I said, with great gusto, upon picking up dual lines and launching a kite. I love flying with a tail for the drama, the flap, and for the crowd it draws. Thanks for the excuse to clip it on and try writing!
