Finally it's here! I picked up a black Flexifoil Super 10 from the kite shop this afternoon. This is the most excellent prize from Flexifoil.com that I've been waiting for, after writing a story for their competition. We took the time to pose for this photo to send back to Felxifoil. Note the new 1.5m bullet in the shop window, looking very striking in green and black. I haven't quite worked out how I'm going to get my hands on that kite.... yet. Maybe I'll win one when I register my new Super10... now that would be lucky!
Cheesy publicity shot ;D . Thats me on the right, and Ted from the Kite shop on the left. Photo credit to Gretchen (the other half of the kite shop team).
I've assembled it, admired it, waved it around the lounge a bit. I've pre-streched and matched the flying lines and removed the great big "please don't sue us" warning label (trust me... I know what I'm doing ;) ). You know the one tells you not to wrap your lines around powerlines, crash your kite into your friends, or go for a fly at the airport.
I can't wait to try this beast out. I hope theres a strong breeze tommorrow!
