Some of us can barely get a kite up in the air and believe it or not there is a small trick to it. First and foremost you have to have a breeze of some sort and away you go.

Several kites now that’s a different story an don top of that make them dance. WOW!

The Team iQuad performs at the Kite Festival in Southern Oregon at Port of Brookings Harbor in July.

The iQuad team travels worldwide to perform their tricks of synchronized kite flying.

iQuad was founded by John Barresi and David Hathaway and they compete in the World Sport Kite Championships in France. The various pilots are from Oregon, California, Canada and Washington.

There are various types of kite flying most notably, ” Freestyle”. The team created their first choreographed four-person routine back in 2009 to AC/DC’s, “Black in Black”.

The kites they use are called  Revolutions and the originally designed in 1987  by Joe Hadzicki. The Revolutions are truly multi-directional and have the ability to fly forward, backward, sideways, adjusting speed, and even stopping on a dime to hover nearly motionless in mid-air.

iQuad has successfully performed as a team in all conditions from zero wind primarily indoors all the way up to nearly 50 miles per hour outdoors.
