Everyone is Welcome to GO FLY A KITE with us! 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!
Springtime, March, April, May, is regarded as "Kite Season" in the United States, however YOU can Fly A Kite. ANYTIME there is WIND, Day or Night, Regardless of weather conditions (except for in a Lightning storm) and even Indoors without any wind whatsoever except for the movement of the kite by walking with it and pulling.
We are here to encourage Everyone of All Ages to fly 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 suffer from lack of wind, or too much wind that breaks even our Carbon Fiber sticks or Spectra "strings" all the time being stranded in Colorado without a coastline. Thus it's less boring when we have other "Kite Addicts" to hang out with.
We are an Affiliated Club of the American Kitefliers Association. Please Join the AKA! http://aka.kite.org...
so Yes, if you are an expert Kiter you came to the right website!
This association consists of all genre of Kiting.
Kite Fliers; 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 but limited. We have kiters travel to Lake McConnaughy Nebraska in the summer. We had Meetups there and would like to do more. This Meetup site has always been intended to be a contact point for kiteboarding, but we need more help from that community. For info on learning Kiteboarding, please contact our member, Justin Young, and other sources whom specialize in water or snow kiting.
We also fly at Sandstone Ranch Park near Longmont, Hwy 119, east of Weld County Line Rd 1, between Hajek Chevrolet, and a new Wal Mart
Kite boarders go to many mountain locations, including Dillon Reservoir, to board on snow and ice in winter.
Landboarders come to our above mentioned spots to fly, but we help them keep some areas discreet to protect them from being Banned from all of us due to inexperienced kiters having accidents or damaging the turf or other problems. One location is near an airport, so only suitable for low flying traction or sport kites. We discourage flying anything on lines longer than stunt kite or boarding kite lengths when near an airport.
Many of us fly both traditional kites, And do Kiteboarding, mostly flying Trainer foils, and stunt kites.
We encourage everyone to join us here for FREE, even Kiters from outside this area, to stay informed on Kite News from Denver and the Front Range.
