Back in the late 80's my sister went from Jockeys Ridge (80ft sand dune) to Woodstock in VA. (2000 ft Mountain slot launch). Was the program at Kitty Hawk Kites before towing. But you did have to be able to soar the dune before you went to the mountains. That really only left the approach as it takes pretty good pilot skills to soar that dune.....jlatorre wrote: ↑Sun Jul 02, 2017 1:05 pmYou may be the only person I've heard of that made that drastic a transition.
