Dowel Rokkaku - First Try

by Blake
(Berlin, Germany)

This is my first kite. I am living in Berlin, Germany and it has started to get windy! I thought it would be fun to build and fly a kite.

Here's my first attempt. I think it turned out pretty well. I have not had optimal wind (a bit gusty) but it seems to fly well. I am looking forward to a good steady breeze soon.

Looks good!

That's a fine-looking Rok - and it really doesn't take much wind at all to get it up high. And then you'll discover thermals... Thanks for supplying a photo!
