Once, I had a dream of a perfect kite flying site:
- A park where fliers (single line, sport and traction)
are not merely tolerated but made welcome.
- Wide open space, without trees, open to the wind.
- Grass underfoot, not dirt or sand.
- Flat room to buggy, but a slope to play on too. Plenty of
room (and attitude) for single line and sport fliers.
- A lake to kitesurf, with grass banks, not trees or bushes.
- Resident flier to look after visitors.
- Shop on hand with everything you might need, and the opportunity
to try out the latest kit.
- Somewhere to eat and drink in the same field, not over the road.
Yesterday, that dream came true, when I visited a new site near
J5 on the M3. The resident flier is John Eaton,
the location is just *beautiful*, a few miles north of Worcester on
the A443, between Hallow and Holt Heath (look for the flags by the
lake). They are still fitting out the shop - don't miss the
opening event on 1/2 September - the weekend now free because
Bristol is off.
Note that 1/2 Sept is a full kite event - not just traction.
