Good news and not as good news....

The website is being reloaded.

The Big Announcement pertaining to Aerial Art is that there are no more Cypods available. The next chance we get to acquire some will be 2009. Scott is taking time to work on some other more needed projects. So the last two Cypods that we have will be it until then. TriWings might fall into the same deal-although we are not certain yet.

The new Aerial Art page is up. There are problems with some of the small images but you can click through to big pictures easily enough.

Also coming is a Flock of Ducks-a Brace of ducks- what ever you call a big group of ducks. Mike Dallmer has signed up with us and shipped up a box of his rapidly becoming famous Ducky banners (and yes the box had air holes).

Just in time for fall: for those kitemakers out there there is going to be a plan for a new kite out of Belgium, designed by our new friend Christophe Tournay. Christophe made a Leaf kite for an outdoor education group in Belgium, and the kites were a hit. There are two bows on them and you can adjust them to be stable or be a fighter. Now this is not a kite made OUT of a leaf. This is a Chikara and Micro-carbon kite. This will test your hot cutting skills! Ready for a challenge?
Picture by Etienne from his Picasa page of Nieuwpoort 2008.
Here is a small Video that Etienne shot of the Leaf flying.
More info on the Leaf when the files hit our computer.
Bon vent everyone!!!!!

The Kite Yard Sale revisited

Well, we are back from our rainy wet vacation in Maine. It took us awhile to get all of our gear dried out and put away, but we did it.

So back to the grindstone!

The Yard Sale of kites has been updated. There is some stuff left. If there is something you see that you are interested in let me know. Any offer will be considered (if not accepted-we do need a trailer hitch on the Baja wink wink know a garage in our area?).

As for new stock-we are sorting items out. We received a box of Ducky banners from New Jersey-you know the yellow ones that are popping up at festivals around the country. All different types (they have different eyes-you will see soon enough). That page is being worked on.

There will soon be a plan for a really neat kite, designed by a new Belgian friend, that will tug at your Autumn dreams on the website as well. Get your hot cutters and ripstop ready for this one!

There will be more news coming very soon so get your rss readers ready and your paypal fingers warmed up!
