lwhump

wh-ump

verb

  • using arm motion and backward stride, to pull the flat of a sail toward you using all four lines in order to create pressure and flex in the frame, producing drive.

    "the pilot whumped his sail to load up and initiate forward flight"

    synonyms:

    load, initiate, kick, tap;

  • similar technique, applied very quickly to accentuate and power up through a short, precise movement.

    "he whumped his kite into a forward roll one foot above the ground, finishing in a solid forward 45 landing"

    synonyms:

    load, initiate, kick, tap;

One hint from the man himself ..too quote " I think the Rev silhouette would be best, "well loaded", as if it's just been whumped"........ if used

Reference whump material :

.....shoot me a p.m. without fear of me stealing your ideas :ani_victory:

...and for some humor associated....

Hi! My name is Scott. I fly Revs and I'm a Whumper..

I didn't always Whump...Very little Whump involved in the beginning.

But once I tried Whump..I knew right then and there, I couldn't Whump enough.

In high wind I Whump a little less...In low wind I Whump a whole lot more.

As a matter of fact, I will be Whumping not too long from now..Probably a mild Whump.

So my Whumping question to you is........... Got Whump?

Create Custom T-Shirts

Preferred file format is AI or SVG, but if you don't know what that means, a good napkin sketch could also win. :)

My only added requests...

No Rev logo.

No verbiage, other than the hook line for the shirt (re "whumping") and my URL (johnbarresi.com).

Don't think of Rev or KL as companies in the design, focus should be on flying (the experience).

I've also attached a copy of my logo if you'd like to try and incorporate it...

Rough is fine, we can clean up later. ;)

Scott, any chance you could add a couple of bold links to "whump" discussions as reference in your lead post?

I think the key here is not just the humor, but the actual "whump" ideology. :)

Would this be considered whumpped?

Without motion, It's hard to tell..but from the hand position...hmmmm. Sure got the right idea on shape for a "Whumping " to base your design off of :)

Can I use a hash tag (#gotwhump) or just the Whump?

Kind of sounds like a question my kids would ask...

Thinking out loud... Just fodder to used or discarded:

Sporty, modern, tribal, silhouette, live action...

This is really cool, can't wait to see some concepts! :)

No idea....is a bad idea, As John stated , it can be "cleaned up" in the later stages. This is all about ideas and being creative. So throw your thoughts out there. Everything in life starts from 1 simple thought.

I work on turkey day...I will whip up something and submit it to get the juices flowing.....just to prove ANYONE and ANY IDEA is good.

Maybe even submit your concept as a rough sketch to secure your idea? It can be improved upon and a final entry can be submitted before the end date. This is about everyone here...so any feedback will be taken into consideration to improve upon possible "future" concept drawing challenges :ani_whistling::g:

Now where is that smiley holding a http://www.johnbarresi.com sign? :sign_kitelife:

First Shot. Would definitely need a bit of tuning, but the idea is there. The kite is an actual outline of a whumped Rev from one of JB's videos.

Guess I will throw an idea hint out there for someone...... One of my original thoughts for a 2 sided shirt is actually posted in the first post and could be copy and pasted directly for the design with no modifications other than maybe color. In my thoughts it would be the front of the shirt , with the back consisting of more details from the same post. :) I have not mentioned this one to even John. SO we will see if someone gets it....

Hahaha, I thought of that too for the front. No idea what I'd put on the back yet though. I think some graphics would be nice, but what? Hmmmmmm.........

    • Researcher in Anthropology
      By Rita
      Hello everyone, 
      My name is Rita and I'm studying anthropology. I'm writing a paper on technics and I picked kiting.
      I don't want to bother your community on this forum but would be extremely thankful if some of you could tell me why you started flying, how did you come to it at the first place and what does it mean to you now ? 
      I find this utterly beautiful that humans persist kiting for centuries. 
      Do you all link flying a kite with flying ?
      Thank you for your time 
      and good flights 
       
      Rita
       
       
       
    • Rev Tutorial - Sail Loading
      By John Barresi
      Another in the ongoing series of Kitelife Magazine tutorials for using Revolution quad line kites, this one detailing the dynamic of Sail Loading wherein the pilot is able to compress and decompress wind in the sail at will, using that pressure and added control to flex and unflex the frame, creating a far greater range of movement in varying wind conditions.
      One of the greatest uses for Sail Loading is that it also serves to minimize the amount of input required, instead relying on increased or decreased pressure to enhance smaller inputs.

      NOTE: A reliable (and free) cross-platform video player is VLC, which should work with any file format including MKV.
