New to kites, new to Newsgroups! HELP!!

Can anyone help?

I bought a Brookite Olympus a few weeks ago and I don't seem to have much
success in flying it!

Can anyone recommend any books...ANYTHING! that might get me started and
teach me the basics.

I'm living in a very good area for kite flying: Sunderland, UK on the North Sea,
so there's always a good wind blowing!

Yours,

Diarmaid McGleenan

A good place to start is Ron Reich's book, Kite Precision. If it's
not available at your local kite store, you can order it out of
the magazine Kitelines, along with just about every kite book
around. Although I haven't seen it personally, there have been a
number of positive responses to Dodd Gross' video on this newsgroup.

Good luck,

 One book we can recommend is Stunt Kites by David Gomberg available at
 most kite retailers - Try Tradewinds of Reading 01582 662779 for mail
 order.

 Brilliant - see you at Washington Kite Festival then 1 and 2 July 1995.
