No chance, we'll have volunteers to draw on! :clap;

Ah well, guess we all have to pay for our sins sooner or later ... apparently I pay for mine in 123 days time

All ribbing aside, it's going to be a brilliant time... 30 students, 5-7 instructors, lots of new shared perspectives and skills, a great beach (and typically great wind - between 3 and 16 mph), new friends and TEAM FLYING. :clap;

I for one, can't wait!

The ribbing will keep me from thinking too much (I'll be too busy watching for the SLE) ...

I'm glad its going to be a full group since it means I can meet more people and can do some team. You know I'm doing this because I'm not sure I can make WSIKF, so it's good to have as many people as possible there so it becomes a mini-WSIKF for me. I'm going to miss out on all the other teams and top pilots that come to WSIKF, but it's going to be the next best thing.

Woohoo, what an AWESOME weekend!!

The power of the bubble kept us in good or tolerable weather most of the weekend, the average skill level between all fliers was really stunning and I saw noticeable improvement everywhere by the time folks started leaving on Sunday.

My favorite part... All the grins.

We had a great group, they made it magical for me - thank you so much! :)

Stay tuned for info about the team clinic in July, possibly another regular clinic sometime, and of course, more Rev fun at events around the country.

      Hi all
      I'm aware the go-to material for quads like revs are the 3/4oz icarex ripstop nylon.
      But anyone can help with determining the thread count and density of such .75oz ripstop rev sails use? Assuming 1sqm or sqf.
       
      Thanks much!

      Hi all - putting up another fun raffle item as part of our fund raising efforts for the coming off season... It's almost extra special, seeing as there are no more B-Series being made and there are only 225 tickets available!

      (NOTE: prize is STD in lime combo, as pictured)
      NO subscription required to enter, you just need raffle tickets... We'll be drawing ONE winning ticket as soon as all tickets are sold for this brand new, never flown Revolution B-Series STD directly from the KiteLife prize basket - what's included?
      B-Series STD sail in lime / combo (hand-signed by JB, can personalize) OPTIONAL upgrades ($): LE tabs, Wear Strips and/or 2nd Stitch 13" handles w/ Pro leaders 2 wrap frame 3 wrap frame Kite sleeve DVD I have personally opened this package, swapped TK's pro leaders onto the handles and made sure everything is properly configured to fly well... This package is almost ready to fly - just add your even length quad lines, drive your stake into the ground, put the handles over it and walk downwind.
      Note, this is not a B-Series PRO, it's a pure factory model in custom colors but it becomes fairly "Pro-esque" if all the upgrades are done.
      Tickets are $5 each (via PayPal/Visa/MC/Discover/AmEx), 225 tickets are available, we'll use a numbered spreadsheet and ticket numbers will be issued accordingly, drawing shortly after the last ticket (#225) is sold using the same random method as our regular subscriber drawings - and we will ship anywhere in the world, all entries are welcome!
      -- Click here to buy your tickets! --
      (link does not work on TapaTalk - use web browser)
      As always, TK and I extend our deepest thanks for your support, past and current - we wouldn't be able to do what we do without you.

      Everything needed to go out, and fly, this kite is in excellent condition, the sail is still crisp.
      Condition scale of this kite is a solid 8 out of 10
      Revolution Supersonic RTF
      Agility With A Little Less Pull!
      The lighter, more forgiving of the Speed Series, the Supersonic is on par with the Shockwave in speed, agility, precision, and all around outstanding performance.   With somewhat reduced pull and easier maneuverability, the Supersonic can readily contend with all wind conditions.   The 90" wingspan (7 1/2 feet) and overall weight of only 10 ounces the SuperSonic can perform in a wind range of 4 to 20 mph.
      The speed is awesome, the Supersonic has been clocked flying over 70 mph maintaining total controllability and flies in reverse as fast as the 1.5 SLE flies forwards!
      If you are a speed enthusiast with great wind conditions and the ultimate thirst for speed, the Supersonic will quench your thirst and give you back some change!
      The Revolution Supersonic comes complete with kite, Bag, extra rods,
      Laser Pro Gold lines 150# x 100', Stainless Steel Ultra Light 11" handles. RTF
      Skill: Intermediate To Expert
      Wind: 4 - 20 mph
      Leading edge length: 90"
      Height: 22"
      Weight: 10 oz.
      Structure: Advantage graphite
      SLE Ultra-light
      $200.00
      Free shipping in the US when you use PayPal friends & family option
      I'm getting out of kiting, so there will be more kites, and goodies to come, need funds for a recumbent tadpole trike.
