[Long Beach] This will be an AKA sanctioned three day clinic in conjunction with RevGuild and the World Kite Museum, addressing individual, pairs and team Rev (quad) techniques for NOVICE through MASTER level pilots, led by 10-time national multi-line champion John Barresi, joined by his teammates on the professional sport kite performance team iQuad... While the obvious focus is on Revolutions for their superior flight characteristics and durability, instruction will happily be provided to anyone with a kite that has the essential quad- line flight characteristics such as hovering, reverse, forward, and sideways flight.

The very nature of Rev team flying is fun, relaxed, and very forgiving. So, if youʼre even the least bit curious, this is a premier opportunity to learn from one of the most experienced and prolific Rev pilots in the world.

New this year is a display of kites so small that some could fit into matchboxes. Amazingly, all can fly! Back again are glorious large kites in shapes of butterflies, dragons, peacocks, hawks, sparrows, and a special whistling kite. The common Chinese word for kite is fengzhen, which translates to “wind zither” describing a Chinese love of noise-making kites.

Kite making and coloring, Chinese story time, lectures about kite history, and a scavenger activity will keep individuals and families flurrying through the Garden like kite tails.
