January Bag Cleaning

It is damp and cold on the beach. But we're here staring a huge pile of travelings bags and deaming of sunny skies.

We've got pieces we flew all last season, and some that we added just before the very last show. Heck -- we even have some that have never been flown. But it seems like a good time to clean things out in preparation for a new kite year. And that means you can pick-up a deal while supples last.

Today we head for the Kite Trade Convention - this year in Portland Oregon. Email us any bag-sale orders. We'll be back in the office Friday.

Caterpillar: The Caterpillar is a great ground bouncer!

First of all, it is big really big - ten feet tall and fifty feel long. Second, the Caterpillar is designed to be children/abuse tolerant. There is nothing to grab hold of! We even let kids inside to look around! And finally, it is good looking.

303 Solution: Blue Octopus:

OK -- here's the story. We've gotten in some larger kites that didn't inflate well. Originally, we thought there was a bridling problem. It took forever before we noticed all the problem children were blue and ordered at the same time. That's when we began to test the fabric.

Turns out we got some poorly-sealed nylon. Looks great, but doesn't hold air.

The Kite Studio (kitebuilder.com) offers a product called 303 that you spray or paint on and is supposed to seal things up. If you are willing to give it a try, we'll offer the kites at 50%! And if it doesn't work or you aren't happy, we'll refund your money.

Sharky: Ludovico Bertozzi of Italy came up with this whimsical flying fish with the sad eyes and big toothy grin. He inflates through a small meshed vent in the nose and once filled, will hold shape effectively even in lighter winds.
