UFO's Over The Beach
(Pensacola, Florida, USA)
Living in Pensacola, Florida on the Gulf coast, we get to fly the beautiful beaches year round. And with Gulf Breeze formally being a UFO 'hot spot" so to speak, we often have a little fun with the locals.
I have an 11 foot delta with 3 sets of 25 foot tails that I attach about 20 or so very bright flashing LED's in numerous colors on my kite, tails, line, etc. All you see are the lights, no kite, no line anything... looks creepy! We put the kite about 150 feet in the air and we sand anchor it next to the water.
Then we go run back to the parking lot and wait for cars to drive by. When they do, we all break out our phones and cameras like we are videoing. You would not believe the reactions we get from people!
We even had cops stop by and wonder what's going on! We always play it straight and say we were just driving by and saw the lights just like they did too. Draws a nice crowd sometimes.
I've even heard from people like 2 weeks later on the beach still talking about "that UFO they saw a few weeks back!"
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 :-)
