I want to share with you the words i received from the current owner of this kite:

"dean, I have flown the kite 4 times now, so have over 5 hours air time. I flew it the first time in private, no spectators at all on a field in Tavares. The last 3 times have been at the beach in public, once late at night and then yesterday and today in the late afternoon until after dark.

Methinks you are going to have to rename the kite. In the moon light, in the day light, and in the light of dusk I have had people on each day and during each flight tell me the kite looks like a sperm. This evening there were a bunch of college students on the beach and I asked a group of three what they thought the kite looked like (given the experiences of the previous two flights) flying in the sky. One of the wee lassies developed a funny expression on her face when I asked the question and I guessed what she was thinking. Go ahead I said, tell me what you think. Somewhat sheepishly she replied a sperm. So there you have it, the Jordan Sperm ...... whale that is. Just kidding.

The winds this evening were very light. One of the fellows I buggy with asked me if it would go up, oh yes I said it will rise up high, and it did. I did not measure the wind but I am guessing it was in the 4 and under range as I flew a Flexifoil 6m Rage which I had to pump and work to keep in the air. The winds last night were in the 12 mph range and it flew just fine, the line was whistling and the tail shimmering, or maybe I should say 'swimming'."

 

thank you!
