Have you heard about the Windless Kite Festival 2021? Not? Well, then you better keep on reading!
I haven't been flying a duallie since.... Well, I actually can't remember. So yesterday I entered the field with a couple of duallies under my arm.
Way back in the winter of 2006 I got my hands on the new Jumping Jack Flash by German Level One. Here are some insights from my initial flight ... on a very limited flying field.
I have had a 'little' indoor kite sitting in my bag for too long and now it was desperately looking for an indoor location and hit some serious air. Thankfully it was time to hide from the wet and blustery weather and put the ITrix through its paces.
In October 2004 the AERIALIS Team Flyers started to look for another kite to replace the WSOs that we found lacking something in the team/precision department. We collected eight now classic kites to a big test and here's the story!
Before you start reading this review, I think you should know that I'm kind of biased.

Do you remember in the old days? Way back in 2006-or-something? When the winters were cold and we had snow?
Yes, the Nirvana received all the hype, but there was also this other kite by French manufaturer R-Sky, the Next!
Trick flying in higher winds is demanding, no question about that. Trick flying means your lines going slack all the time, but when the wind is howling it's very hard to get enough slack in the lines to carry out the various tricks.
This goes back to the year of 2003, quite some time ago. One of the Nirvanas of the first ever commercially available Nirvanas happened to end up at the end of my strings!
