With weather forecasts suggesting amazing winds in Hyderabad, GHAC brings back to you one more weekend of the addictive and exciting sport of Power Kiting. Kiting for all..... Beginners will learn the basics... .repeaters will get to practice and those who are ready will try out the next level. Details below: What is a power kite? A power kite or traction kite is a large kite designed to provide significant pull to the user and are also used in conjunction with a vehicle or board, such as in kitesurfing on a kiteboard, kite buggying on a purpose-built 3-wheeled cart, kite landboarding on an all-terrain/mountain/land board. Who all can fly a power kite? Anyone fit and healthy (avoid if you have shoulder injury); Age: 13+(Kids in the age group 8-12 can, but please inform in advance if you are getting any kid with you) I am a first timer. Can I fly a kite? Yes. It is an easy sport to learn. For first timers, the session would start with a bit of theory and demonstration of safety, site assessment, kite set-up, rigging of the lines , kite launching, kite flying & kite landing, wind window concept and kite power control. After that, you have the complete event duration to fly the kites on your own. The event host and trainer will be there to assist you if required. How many attempts do I get to fly the kite? You can fly as many times and for as long you want. There are no limitations on it. Generally a person can fly a kite maximum upto 10-15 minutes in one attempt before they need a breather and pass on the kite to the next person. Session will last for about 3 hours. But depending on favourable weather and participants' interests we can extend it further. What should I bring along with me? • The mandatory disclaimer form (link below) • Water (2 liters) and snacks (please note there is nothing nearby the venue) • Optional: Hat, Sunscreen, sunglasses • Camera to click pics • Enthusiasm to learn kiting and a jolly mood to have fun :) What can I wear to the event?
