This summer I did a good cleaning of the basement. In addition to a LOT of other stuff, here is also where I keep my kites. When cleaning up I could not resist digging into all of my kitebags and that brought back memories.
I started kiting – well, rather picked it up again – twenty years ago and since that summer of 1998 I’ve gathered quite a few kites along the way. You might say I’m the proud owner of a collection of quite a bunch of Stunt Kite Classics.
Right from the first real kite I bought – an HQ Session 1.1 to the more recent Kitehouse Cosmic. In my opinion two classic stunt kites.
…and I’ve got more…
The Feather, Midi Sandpiper, Gemini, Elixir, Illusion 2K, MiniGem, Jam Session, a full series of Pro Reactors, Utopia and a whole bunch of others.
So this thought came sneaking up upon me… Why not let all these oldies (?) but goodies see some air time again? You know, put them through their paces? How do they perform to the more modern style of freestyle flying? What’s their trickability like? Will they do decent precision? What do they feel like in the air?
So that’s my project. I am going to put all (?) my classics through the paces, bringing back the good (and maybe also the not so good ;-) ) memories of my twenty years of flying stunt kites!
…and off course everything will be documented here at AERIALIS Kites in a new column called – yeah you guessed it – Stunt Kite Classics!
But before I get going, I am going to need your help!
