closed for a couple of days

The website will be closed for a couple of days due to a death in the family.
Back in a few.


resolution? well...not really.....

Over the years I have had different jobs that allowed different liberties.....some of those jobs were restrictive, or demanded a good bit of my time mentally (whether or not I wanted them to).  
So, of course like many others the activity that I loved dropped off.....
I am in a position right now where I can run down to the beach at lunch time and relax my mind by flying!

So.....I am trying to get out flying at least once a week.....I know it is not THAT restrictive of an attempt - but I am being real about it (a skeptic mayhaps?)....
If I can get myself out of the office or house at least 52 times to fly that is enough for me at this time....maybe next year i will go for two times a week....

I will be going through my bags to find some of those neat or different kites that end up tucked away in the bottom of the bag and do not come often enough....

Last week I was able to get out a couple of times....I have been working on rehabbing a handful of 25 year old kites and therefor i need to get out to test them....that helps!

Starting this week off strong as it is sunny, windy, and 60 dang degrees here in Gloucester Massachusetts in January!!!   Pulled out a Christophe Tournay leaf kite to fly....
(a guy walked up to chat with me as he was drawn to it since the kite is a maple leaf and he is Canadian....Love the relationships that form around kites!!!!).

You can follow my attempt (photos and all) on Twitter at hashtag #Flayakiteaweek.  
Any one dare say i might not make it?



What a funny word: Plutz......

Have you heard? 
The newest super sweet xUL gliding kite is coming out before KTAI!!!
ceewan has brought out his new MEGA plutz!

There was a Mega plutz about 3 years ago, but very few were produced, 
and extremely few (maybe just 1) are here in the states.

So, if you are looking for a 
no wind - low wind 
active flying kite 
that is not small you will want a Mega Plutz!

Framed in full skyshark p90s that makes this kite 65" wide and long.........
All icarex for an outstanding colored lightweight skin....
The flight ability that is designed into this is astonishing....seriously....it will climb extremely well in 1 mph wind...and it glides as long as you feed it line....
Check out the detail pictures over here on google+
including the picture that shows the 7 color choices to pick from.

Retail will be 240$ but our preorder price is 216$ and gets you the exact one you want from the first batch.
If this tempts you then head over to Windsweptkites.com and hit the button.

We are also able to get some of the limited number of the POP Plutz3s as well.   These are the model that the Mega is based on (as well as the Prism ZeroG).   They are 40" wide/long and only 85$ shipped to you.

Keep flying whether there is wind or not!!!!
