Traction Kiting

July 19 & 20 2009

Below are some pics of me getting some good time in with the Traction Kite. I have had this thing for about 3 years and had it out about 5 times.  I was up in  Sudbury during this time - there is a fairly good size field in the back of grandmas.  This is the 1st time in a long time that there has been a decent wind - strong and steady enough to get the kite up but not too strong as to rip my arms out of their sockets.

I call this page "Excersiing with a kite" by no means a joke.  This kite is a 4.7meter Flexifoil (medium size) and under a good wind can pull me with ease.  I had some gusty conditions these 2 days (maybe reaching 10kph, so light) and some of the gusts were very pulley to the point I could not maintain my position and had to step forward to stay up right.

If you interested in traction kiting - there is lots of stuff on the internet to peek your interest.
