My name is Ron. I have been flying kites since 1999. I fly mostly dual and quad line sport kites.
There are two or three good flying fields in the Vancouver area. The first field is Garry Point in Steveston. The second field is Vanier Park in Vancouver. Others include White Rock, Centennial Beach and Ambleside Park.
Garry Point Park is my favorite place to fly. The field is dry most of the year and the wind is usually pretty good. You will find kitefliers of all ages, flying all types of kites here. The BCKA holds many "fun flys" here through out the year. There is a "lake" that does take up some of the good flying area in the winter though. The really good part is I live 5 minutes away!
Vanier Park in Vancouver is another of the main kiteflying fields. The BCKA holds their annual "Pacific Rim Kite Festival" here on the BC Day long weekend in August. The wind is good at Vanier if it comes from the west or north-west. In the summer there are always lots of people around to watch the kitefliers do their stuff.
