Thanks Tony - we'll be there as usual. Maybe with the huge (well, huge by our standards!) 2-Dowel Sled and / or the Dowel Delta for light conditions and perhaps the Fresh Wind Dowel Box if that sea breeze really pumps in...

Looking forward to it! We might feature some video this time, instead of stills, when we write up the event.

"Love the easy to understand step by step instructions, made from next to nothing materials and above all so much fun to fly... cheers Tim for sharing your well thought out pdf kite designs with the whole world.

Very satisfying making your own and watching them get air-born for the first time."

Very detailed and USEFUL information - thanks for such a great book."

"30+ years ago, I tried making a kite using the 'instructions' in a free kite-safety booklet. What a disappointment for a young boy.

 Your instructions and methods are wonderful. You help the builder to focus on accuracy, without making it hard. Also, you use materials that are durable, yet cheap!"
