Meet the FBSKC Pilots

Find out more about your fellow FBSKC Pilots, the kites they fly, and when you can find them at The Fort.



I am a neophyte pilot ('04) who learned how to fly on Prism kites. My first kite was a Prism Nexus. Later I had a go at a Quantum and quickly learned a couple of cool tricks. I learned how to Pancake to Fade before I could even Axel! That got me really interested in Freestyle. I really have to brush up on my flying skills! You can catch me flying at The Fort in weekends usually away from the stupid dogs.


I started kiting November 2003. My first kite was a diamond single line kite. That got me hooked on kiting instantly, so I started collecting different kinds of kites. Just as when I thought there's nothing more to kiting than single line kites of different shapes and sizes, I came across this dual line Edge kite at Lil's hobby shop in Park Square 1. This is how I got introduced to the exciting world of sport kiting! Then after few sessions of web surfing, a great idea dawned upon me, "Why not make my own kite!" So I took out my mom's old sewing machine, sat in front of it, armed with my sewing skills I learned back in high school, and started making my very first Cassopeia. It's a quad-line kite which shape is very similar to Rev kites. Since I can't get hold of cabon fiber spars, I used BAMBOO! My next project was NPW5. This is my favorite! It is harder to make because it involves a lot of stitching, not to mention all those computations for the bridle lines. I built a bigger version of the NPW5 which is what you can see me fly now at The Fort. It has relatively strong pull. Projects on the drawing board: 1) NPW-HA: a high aspect Nasawing! 2) a Rev kite made out of P850 camping tent!


I bumped into sport kites by accident while I was shopping online for regular, single-line kites. I was amazed by the videos I downloaded and could not believe the tricks dual-line sport kites were capable of. In May 2004 I ordered and recieved my first sport kite, a Prism Quantum. It taught me all the basics I needed to know and before long I was shopping for a more advanced kite. I now mainly fly my Prism Quantum Pro or Prism Ozone on low-wind days. You can catch me flying on Saturdays or Sundays, but I prefer flying at the Fort during the week so I can practice my tricks without any SLKs (Single Line Kites) or people getting in the way. Recently I've been lured to the "dark-side" and am gaining interest in quad-line traction kites and KGB (Kite Ground Boarding).

I took my second look at kites a few years before I turned 30.  I thought of bringing my kids to the field for fresh air and as an alternate to the too urban weekend malling.  It turns out kite-flying is a better, no to mention less expensive, family bonding activity.


I did fly kites as a child in a barrio in Nueva Vizcaya.  There were only two kinds of kites there - newspaper diamonds glued with left-over rice and newspaper diamonds glued with freshly-cooked rice.  The latter was easier to make but the folks do not approve of the technique very much.  In both cases, they constantly complained about the broomstick growing thinner and thinner.


Sometime in 2000, Noel Basco opened a whole new window when he, the ever-friendly guy that he is, approached me in Astro Park, Pampanga.  He must have been bothered by the unruly single line my son and I were flying then and offered to make some adjustments.  I then noticed that his car was FULL of kites.  And there were no diamonds there!  The rest, as they say, is history.
