it easier to navigate.

average kiter can perform comfortably.

first formal "open source" multi-discipline kite teaching methodology

since 1999 and now we need to clear our emails. So the best place to
keep them is on the web site. So here they are: all the feedbacks we
received since 1999 and more in the future (you will find feedbacks from
Bruno Legainoux, Peter Cabrihna, Don Montague, Jimmy Lewis and many
other well-known kiters there).

mysterious art. So design and make or have someone made your own kite.
