I've been lurking on the forum for a few weeks since picking up a kite for the first time since I was a kid on the beach at Lytham. It was a very cheap twin line stunt kite that ended up in the bin but I was having so much fun with it I decided to try something a bit better and more fun.
I've just got back from the shop after buying a new Flexifoil Sting 2.4. Have I made the right choice? Haven't flown it yet as it's been pissing it down all day but hopefully will get it out at the weekend.
I'm still having second thoughts. I was torn between a couple of others, Ozone Imp Quattro 3.5 and Peter Lynn Hornet 3.0. All the same sort of price but I wanted something fun to learn with. I wasn't worried about being swept away as I'm 6'4 and 16 Stone... the guy in the shop, (anti-gravity in York) suggested I might like to step straight into a 4.0... But I figured at least if I get bored of this one I can get Herself to try this one or save it for the kids when they're old enough, 3 and 6 months at the moment :-)
I'm based between Leeds and Bradford and would be interested for any good spots round me to go and fly or maybe meet up and get some advice from you more experienced fellas?
Anyhow, cheers and see yous around.
