Noob-kiter. During this years summer-vacation I re-discovered the joy (and thrill), of flying a kite. Must be.... over 25 years since I last flew a kite. Long
story short, a sudden impulse made me by a delta 2-liner in a souvenir/tourist-shop/trap. Just a cheap one, thought that we could pass a couple of hours with
it, and introduce my 2-year old daughter, and her friend, to kites. Huge success, mostly for the two dads. The girls attention-span cuts out in about 5
minutes, and theres lots of other stuff, that demands their attention. Like pretty stones, wild flowers and water-balloons... But the daddy´es had great fun
with the cheap delta-stunters, so much in fact, that a couple of days later, we both upgraded to some better quality kites from Wolkenstürmer. Since coming
home from the vacation, I have been busy putting a new kitchen in our house, so not much time for training with the kites. Has also been raining, A LOT, the
last couple of weeks, so not ideal kite-weather anyhoot. So, all in all, since I got bitten by the kite-bug, I has´nt got much more than 10 hours flying the
things... So very very much a beginner, but definately bitten by a mad kite, and can´t wait for some decent weather, and time, to go flying again. Any
spare-time during this rainy summer, is being used scampering through kite-forums, and kite-webshobs. So many nice kites.... Would like a bigger delta (the
Wolkenstürmer is around 180cm span).... Oh, and then I´m from Denmark, married, has a wonder-tastic 2-year old daughter (born pre-mature, so she´s a fighter.
If she was´nt, she would´nt be with us today), and other hobbies include reading (mostly biographyes and military history), doodling about in my hobby-workshop
and spending time with my wife and my daughter....
