    Anyone up for meeting this weekend for practicing with trainer kites? I have a trainer kite and can meet either in SF or San Mateo, 3rd Ave. Let me know. Have a great weekend!

    I often heard that 9m kites were the best trade off between maneuverability and stability. The following chart provides some insight on the best conditions....20 knots and up is ideal, the least gusts the better

    For information, Live2Kite organizes a downwinder from Crissy to Berkeley next week-end. Definitely not a beginners event but the BBQ should be a lot of fun and it is a good way to meet fellow kiters:

    Hey Paul, sorry for the late reply. The weather looked too grim and the wind too moody for me, hopefully next time. And I do not have a trainer kite, unless your consider a 9m a trainer :P

    @Jennifer - I was just planning to meet the people from the group and practice with the training kite. You don't need any gear for tomorrow. I have a trainer kite and don't mind sharing :) it's raining in the city now but if it clears up tomorrow, I'll be at 3rd ave around 1-1:30pm.

    I was going to borrow my friends trainer kite, but can't get it for tomorrow. If Goksun and Heather want to go if weather looks decent, I'm still in. Let's call it tomorrow morning.
