Kites

I was introduced to kiting a while ago by Elaine. Since then, it's spread, and I'd have one by now if I actually had some money. Something to look forward to.

50+mph winds at Mablethorpe - 8 February 2004
Windy, cold. Only one of the big kites even made it out of the bag, and it was something of an unwieldy beast.

Kite action at Mablethorpe - 21 September 2003
Spent an ace Sunday flying Ed's new 3 metre 'firebee' kite. Had a go on a lovely 4.5 metre Libre power kite, intended for pulling a buggy along, unfortunately the camera decided it was time for a rest before this happened. The Libre was a fantastically powerful monster of a kite that had me flying down the beach without the buggy, leaving some big trails in my wake. Tired arms! Feel like I've been beaten up today, all good exercise.
