Fly an aerofoil kite

< Completed List

Many years ago, I used to fly rigid stunt kites. Diamond in shape with two control lines. But being rigid they would be prone to braking if flown into the ground, which is something I did a few times. With an aerofoil kite there are no components other than the material itself, so pretty indestructible.  Also, the aero foil kite is a lot more efficient which means even with a gentle wind the kite will fly. However, if there’s a strong wind then there’s some fun to be had!  Kite surfing in my wheelchair for example!

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible."
