I got to fly the big kite this afternoon! Little guy kept getting ripped up. I had to adjust the birdle a bit, but once I did I was flying high!

The big one is a lot slower, but it pulls you a lot harder, so it’s more of a workout, and still reeeeeeally fun.

I'm still pretty new to flying kites, just started doing it a bit last year when I bought a Quantum 2.0 in Kitty Hawk. I've been having trouble keeping that kite in the air here so I got a 4D Ultralite instead, and man does this thing rip!

Welp, I finally found my kite flyin' spot, and it is literally two blocks away from my house! I had the best flying session since I was at the Outer Banks. I found my GoPro and my mount for my hat, so next time I go out I think I'll record so y'all can see how fast this kite zooms. It's SO sensitive.

Disc golf, followed by a kite flying session this morning. I think I finally found my spot for flying kites in my hometown! My zero-wind lite kite did really well today, and it was a significant workout to boot.

I can’t wait to fly this thing! It’s SO light, and delicate, but it’s rated at 0-15MPH wind speeds. I love my Quantum but it’s really hard to keep that thing in the air at those speeds. If you had short enough lines, you could fly this in a gymnasium.

A Prism 4D Superlite kite, in its case all zipped up.

We visited Cavendish Beach, a site that was suggested to us by a local. She referred to it as "cavy", and asked her co worker what she thought of the recommendation with an "eh?"

Cavy creates this beautiful gradation from blue to red as the water hits the red soil on the coast.

I practiced my kite stalls, barefoot on the beach, while the kids played in the cold water. I love beach days!
