Blue Sky kite club
Luxembourg / Europe
Blue Sky is my local kite club here in Luxembourg.
I owe a lot to this club and I am actually a very active member of the comitee. I came to kiting from photography (see my KAP pages) and that's how I got into contact with the club. Since I joined them, I attended a number of kite festivals with my fellow members and I can only say: If you find a local kite club, have a look at it and join them if you really want to go into kiting. The experience they can share with you is worth a lot and can spare you tons of frustration by avoiding you the typical beginners' errors.
Here's my clubs' site: Blue Sky
If you live in the US, you can find a local club on the site of the American Kitefliers Association (AKA)
