Here in Ottawa, everyone is looking forward to summer vacations after an extremely busy release cycle. My good friend Sonia has introduced us to sport kiting.
Flying a kite is a very relaxing way to spend lunch hour - thoughts of builds and bugs are swept away. Sonia can really make the kite dance.
I just try to keep it up in the air without crashing spectacularly. In some ways, it's similar to being a buildmeister...
Some people see kiting as an extreme sport. Others go kite skiing.
The other day, we discovered that Prism offers a p2 sport kite. It is described as follows
The P.2 develops impressive pull in a strong breeze but responds with crisp precision to your inputs. It’s astonishingly easy to recover from a collapse or a crash due to its oversized air inlets, and when the wind picks up it’ll really scream along. Want more power? Stack one, two, or three more P.2’s in a train and get ready to go for a ride!
I look forward to seeing p2, Eclipse 3.4 and Ganymede take flight.
