I cant beleive you are asking such a sexist question. Start her on a small
slow easy kite in exactly the same way as you should for any newbe kite
flyer. I would have thought that it went without saying that we should
encorage anybody to try the sport.

It may be difficult to design the bridle and you will probably need to
invest in some stronger lines - but, good luck...

Perhaps if you teach her to fly , she can teach you to spell....
And how about stout middle-aged women, do they get to have a go too??

Waddo

Ever thought of just letting her try. Though why she has to ask your
permission, I'm not sure. She'll either like it or she won't. Rocket
science, innit?

Aik, I don't know how you could suggest such a sexist thing. A goatee,
if left to its own devices, would grow into a ZZ Top job and then get
burned under the iron or get soaked in the washing up.

Ducks for cover :-)

Well, don't be an idiot, hand her the line(s)!  My wife won't even
*look* at my kites.

I'd allow it, my girlfriend did, she smacked it into the ground twice, so id
advise buying her her own something not too complicated to start with then
work up from there,

My partner used to fly, but never got into tricks and wasn't thay keen on
team flying. She learnt how do do it then decided it was boring. Now I go to
festivals and she goes to the Gym!

Most of the woman around these parts prefer the Rev Quad line kite over
duel line delta's. My wife fly's the duel line kites but gets bored very
easy.

Hi

Its a big no no.

She should be at home making your meal for when you get back from flying.
Anyway if you let her fly who would look after the kids or pets when you go
away to festivals?

and the main reason is she may become a better flyer than most of  us men,
and we can't have that can we ;-)

dont let her fly, long live the MCP's

lol

Let her have a go, I absolutely love flying, my Outerspace is my pride and
joy. My gem has a special place in my heart too.

My boyfriend and I got into flying together and yes he is better than me but
it gives us some great days out, and one of these days I'll learn a trick he
doesn't know how to do.

Oh and Gary my cooking is that bad my boyfirend would starve if he was
waiting for me to make his dinner. So a day of flying and a takeaway is
better for both of us :)

lol
