So, we've been asked about doing a jam in the summer and had the idea of doing a retro kite only jam.....ie only kites 2005 and older to be used!

The BLAST from the PAST

What you reckon?

I think another event would be cracking- however, i dont own any old kites.

I could wear a shell suit and a slap on wristband :-)

I dont either! Very Happy
But ebay is full of cheap old crap kites.....maybe a Wipika Airblast or maybe a Naish ARX usually under £60 or so, or there are loads of people with these in the attic/garage?

Is it ok to use bars from newer kites on older c-kites? Are line lengths likely to be compatible? Safety ok? (I ask because I have a Slingshot Diesel but the bar is no longer ok.)

Perfect for the blast from the past then..! I have been trying to locate another pair of On Fire Gaffs, my trade mark shorts/pants but I fear they may have all been put into the fashion bin in 2006.

I think that kite pants should come back. Nothing quite like a hucking a huge air with a set of magnificent trousers billowing out behind you...

Naish 20M.....can't beat trying to land that by yourself as the tide is rushing in...almost seems a shame to have others around to help land it.....

Retro all the way...

Wadaya mean Retro, I was flying my Takoon Wook from 2003 only two weeks ago.
Admittedly designs have come a long way in a decade, but it still flies and hey it's even got a safety!
