As a kid, I never really managed to get a kite flying. The only kite I'd ever owned was a store-bought two-line stunt kite made to look like an airplane, and it was so difficult for me to even get it off the ground that I put it away and largely forgot about kites until now.
Then, recently, I had a dream I could fly.
My parents strongly objected to me ever trying hang gliding, so I figured I'd better scratch the flying itch with kites instead. I found this website, and then proceeded to make the 2-Skewer Delta kite. It looked so good! Then I went out on a day too windy, with clouds too ominous, and busted it.
Undeterred, I had a look at the soft kites here, and made the Soft Sled. No busted kite for me this time, no sir! It did my heart good to take it out (on a good day now) and see it effortlessly jump into the sky.
As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...
"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)
