Windless kite flying?... very cool!


I had no idea that such a sport existed, but apparently there is a competition for windless kite flying.  They fly kites indoors where there is no wind by essentially dancing around enough to make their own wind.  They work up routines that match up to music (orchestral versions of Rolling Stones songs apparently) and do some pretty cool stuff.

They just completed the 12th annual competition (so its been going on for a while).  The competition is sponsors by the Kite Museum in Long Beach.  Apparently they have different classifications for sinlge line and quad-line kites and all sorts of stuff.  We just might have to make out way down there some year to check this out.

Jeez... there are just too many things to do.
