iQuad’s first visit to Grand Haven, Mike Kory’s first time filling in on the team along with John Barresi, Steve de Rooy, Todd Rudolph, JD Fabich and David Hathaway.

Windless Festival – Long Beach, WA

January 13-14, 2007

Our first time doing an team indoor routine… When we were invited by the World Kite Museum with the idea, we jumped at the chance and spent the better part of Friday preparing for the weekend performances, pilots were John Barresi, Todd Rudolph and David Hathaway.

Also at this same event, we took the first B-Series factory prototype out for a spin on the beach alongside a couple of our team SLEs… Super exciting, it was cool to compare them side by side in nearly perfect (but slightly chilly) beach conditions.

KTAI Trade Show – Portland, OR

January 8-10, 2008

iQuad set up in the Kitelife booth at the trade show just to check out the business side of the kite industry and help in the Revolution booth.

As it turned out, our presence was well-timed as we were voted in for both “Best New Kite” (B-Series) and “Best Retail Promotional Effort” in 2007 from the KTAI membership… The latter one is pretty funny and unique, although it may appear so, because we don’t exactly promote a kite per se.  We just LOVE to fly Revolutions and that carries over… Regardless, it’s quite a milestone because this was the first time a non-business entity had ever received the award.

We went out for a fly one afternoon and along with a little rain, were presented with an absolutely stunning rainbow as captured by Bell Chiu’s photos below.

Antelope Island Stampede

Sep 7th, 2010

I want to thank the members of iQuad. When we started talking about your being here in Utah, I had a vision of what you would do here, that was blown out of the water by what you did. Brought tears to my eyes on Sunday during the Stairway to heaven performance.

Thanks to all of you, most sincerely for a truly remarkable week end of kiting, socializing and educational adventures…

“Thanks once again for blessing West Michigan with iQuad’s presence at the Grand Haven Kite Festival.  I saw your demonstrations late afternoon on Friday and all day Saturday.  I wanted more than anything to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed keeping up with your team over the past year via your website and videos posted on YouTube.  If you remember, I wrote you after last year’s Michigan festival (which, by the way, I was so excited that you used my email on your website.  I immediately screamed the first time I saw it and yelled for my family to come see it.  Thank you!) that 2007 was the first year I’d been to a kite festival.”

“Flying is amazing.  As long as the winds are right, I can lose absolute track of time.  Once last year, I passed nearly 4 hours in what seemed just a few minutes.  It’s so hard to put into words what I feel when I’m flying.  And now that I FINALLY have my own kite, it’s even more awesome!”

“I just got home from spending the weekend at the Kite Festival in Grand Haven, Michigan. This is the first ever kite festival I’ve been to. I never knew much about kite flying before this weekend and I can see how one can get hooked on this sport. I was truly and honestly stunned at the amazing talent and beauty of the kite demonstrations, one of my favorites being the iQuad team. I loved watched your team’s demonstrations. Each performance reflected your members’ amazing skill at handling the kites and together, the demos were a mixture of science, art, dance and beauty. I was overwhelmed to the point of tears it was so amazing. My 4-year old son really liked watching your team, too.”

“I just wanted to write and say thank you for helping to make this a magical weekend for my family. I’m going to be attending more kite festivals in the future and hope to get the pleasure of watching iQuad again.”
