but without the heavy coating. Colors are richer and it also has a UV
coating. This materal is very soft so the banners are quiet and the tails
inflate easily.

Hi Everyone,

I live in the North East (USA) and was wondered if there is anything
special I should know about flying my Kite's in the cold.  This is a
great sport/hobby for me and my son (8 years old)  He has a 6 foot stunt
kite and I just got a 9 foot one.  

Has anyone tried to ski and kite at the same time????

Thanks for any help.

Don

Hi Don,

I'm also from the NE.  Just a couple tips for winter flying:

1) Bring something made of metal to use as a stake...the plastic ones
don't do too well. The plastic becomes brittle and isn't sharp enough
to penetrate the frozen ground.

2) Dress warm and wear a scarf...you've got wind blowing down your
neck.

3) Most important, if you are flying where there is some snow
accumilation, keep in mind that if your kite lands or crashes with the
wing tip far enough into the snow, the wind could very well snap your
leading edge.

Happy flying...I'm heading indoors.

If your address junk means you're from Mass., you should look into KONE
(Kites Over New England) they have regular flys.  If you are from
Connecticute, join the ConnectiKITERS (web site:
http://www.comunlimited.com/connectikiters/ )

Recommendations, fly with friends or alone.  Bring gloves with fingers cut
off and mittens to go over them.  A neck gaitor is good, scarves get
tangled in lines too easily.  Bring hot chocolate.  Put each kite away as
you are done with it.  Nothing is worse in the winter than suddenly having
to put 3 or 4 kites away as the sun is slipping beyond the yard arm,
shadows are lengthening and body & soul are beginning to chill.

For The Fun Of It.

Im glad to see that others are interested in flying in the cold... I do
it all the time, and really enjoy it.  Part of the enjoyment is in
wearing the right clothes and staying comfortable.  I got a set of cold
weather Carharts coveralls including the hood, and a set of insulated
boots for Christmas last year, and with good gloves, and my back to the
wind, I can fly kites in some pretty cold weather and still manage a
sweat.  There is a point where spars get a bit brittle, and logic says to
stay inside, but if you like open fields, and good clear skys, winter
flying in the north is alot of fun.

Yes people have skied and been towed by kites quite a bit.  Also, ice
buggies, and skates are used on lakes!  Your local kite shop ought to
have video tapes of tow kites and skiers etc.  I saw some footage, and
decided it was for those that are a bit younger and less concerned with
the loss of life and limb.  Happy flying.

There's a really interesting person here in the Columbia Gorge way (where
all the windsurfers reside) who uses kites and water skis.  Oops, lost
track of where I was going.  Guess this is winter snow skiing you are
talking about.  Oh well, have fun

Ice skates work well on ice. Watch out for cracks. You may want to try
short skis. They edge well due to the additional pressure per linear
inch. Our ice skis are about 90-100 cm. These shorter skis are not kids
skis, but rather regular length skis that are chopped off from the tips
down to get your 100 cm length. This way, your ice skis have a stronger
edge to them. Kids skis tend to be very flexible, and won't hold the ice
very well. These work great if the ice is very hard, but longer skis
work better if you can get a good bite on softer ice. There are some
ice/snow kite skiing events and competitions in the US. Write for more
info. And, please, please keep your clothes on when you ski. :)

As a rule, it's not ok to post binary attatchments to a discssion group,
particularly one like rec.kites which is gatewayed through a mailing list
to enable people on the far-flung parts of the net to recieve it on
less-connected systems.

The polite, considerate, and accepted move is to put the picture on a web
page and post the URL.

(aside from that, it was a fun picture...)

Oh, thank you very much, just what I needed to start the morning ! :)
Haven't you guys ever heard of frostbite ? You know, that terrible
condition that can cause your ... ahem ...*fingers* to fall off ? <LOL>

Btw, as a general rule, is it ok to post pics on r.k. in an attached file
format ? It was the first time I was actually able to read the pic, usually
I just get garble. If it is ok, what format - MIME or UUENCODE ?

Hi Don,

as you can see, I'm  President of KONE (Kites Over New England).  If you
are on seacoast.com, you are probably up in northern MA.  I live in
Marblehead.  reply to this by e-mail and/or posting and I'll be glad to
help you out.

BTW many people ski with kite power.  Some even use kites to replace
lifts for downhill skiing.  There is a large number of traction flyers
that will be glad to help you out here on r.k.

looking forward to your reply.

- john
