Everyone is Welcome to FLY A KITE with us! If you don't have a kite of your own, we might let you fly one of ours. Even if you just wanna watch US fly kites please come see us, No RSVP necessary! Just show up. Please bring your cameras and post the pics Everywhere, you have our permission.
Welcome to our Meetup group! All skill levels and all types of Kiting are welcome. We Kite on Water, we kite on Snow, and we kite with Buggies. We also do aerial stunts with our kites, or just anchor them to a tree and let the kites fly themselves.
People of ALL ages fly kites. Our Meetup group is all Grown-Ups, but you may bring your kids along if they are interested in kites. Don't be discouraged by a kite you bought in the past that would not fly, or that there was no wind when you tried to fly it, we will help you fly your Kite! We also fix broken kites, some of us carry spare parts around if you break a spar.
Since Colorado either has No wind, or too much wind, it's less boring when we have other "Kite Addicts" to hang out with. Besides, attending a Kite Meetup gets you outside doing something!
We are an Affiliated Club of the American Kitefliers Association. Please Join the AKA! http://kite.org... so Yes, whether you are an expert Kite enthusiast, a Kiteboarder, or new to kites, you came to the right Meetup!
This association consists of all genre and disciplines of kiting, Single Line, Dual Line (Sport, or Stunt kiting), Quad (4-line "REVOLUTION"kiting), Fighters (India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc. fly these one line kites in competition, as seen in THE KITE RUNNER movie) .
Indoor Kiting without wind is becoming very popular. Lightweight Quad, Sport, and Fighter kites are used for this, also Wala Aerobe kites, which glide well.
Kite Boarders; In this area, we have some Land Boarding ( a mountain skateboard is used with a Traction Kite), Buggying (we would like to do more of), and Snow Kiting on Board or Skis in our Rocky Mountains. We also have water Kiteboarding, or kite surfing. Most of our locals travel to Lake McConaughy, Nebraska, South Padre Island (Texas Gulf area) and occasionally kite locally at Aurora Reservoir (if legal) or even Dillon Reservoir in the mountains (for both Snow and Water kiting, depending on season)
