Kite Flying (old passion hobby)

Post by impact2001 on 20th December 2009, 6:06 pm

Hi all, not sure how many of you really appreciate flying kite especially trying to find a suitable place to fly kite is getting lesser and lesser..

Recently I just started to hook up to kite flying (intro by my colleague).. the feeling really not bad.. When u see ur kite soar high up there, with those beautiful leds blink blink here and there.. Kinda really relaxing.. Down there, you start TCSS with all the peoples there while your KITE roaming high up..

Perhaps next time I would like to try out stunt kites (kinda like form of excercise when play that kind of kite).

How abt you guys? Interested bo?

The field opposite the new Sengkang swimming pool is a popular location for kite flying. West Coast park (where we had our 3rd MU) is also popular.

Opposite Tampines Mrt, quite a few people fly kites there. Of course IMO the best place to fly kites and have a romantic picnic at the same time is @ Marina barrage...

I used to fly kite a lot last time!! Fly ppl's kite!! Hahaha!! :-)
Joking... :-)

Ohh I remember last time I was working at Central Mall, there were always ppl flying those kites with leds just beside Riverside Point. Beside Brewerks there. :-)

I asked the price before. Think plus like lessons and all, cost more than hundred or a few hundred. But those kind is the remote controlled type. Hehehehe!! :-)

As for the string kind, I heard Marina Barrage has got pretty strong winds at times thus making it a lot easier to get your kite in the air!! :-)

A friend lost his kite there. Flew away. :-)

Maybe I should go msia and get those big kites from like sabah/sarawak. Those old kind they call 'wau'!! Hehehe!! :-) Then mod with LED lights!! Sure damn 'power'!!! Hahahaha!! :-)

as mention it is 3D.. what the china guy selling only 2D...

Lastly do take note.... if you flying Kite at Sengkang during peak period.. cause guess someone string is those cutting type..

mine kite string had been cut yesterday and same do around 4 more people around the same time.

I'm getting in Kevlar string for my 3D kite cause I wont want other to cut my line...For those who know about string..

Kevlar string is well know as a strong string and most dangerous cause they cut people line..and is ban from lots of competition.
