We're pleased to yet again announce the next prize being given away to our most appreciated supporters, the Kitelife Subscribers... For roughly 10 cents per day they play a major role in keeping KL growing in every way, and they get a chance to win an early present just in time for Christmas.

B2 STD (package w/ handles, DVD and kite sleeve), roughly a $329 value!

This package includes kite, TWO frame sets, 10" adjustable handles, DVD and kite sleeve - ready to fly!

NOTE: The kite in this drawing is RED and black with black center.

This is regular (factory) model, it is not a Pro by Bazzer, but will still provide excellent flying for whoever wins. ;)


You can sign up here.

Odds of winning for this prize is currently 1/352, and will be drawn on December 20th, 2016!

Our thanks, and the very best to you... Let the drooling begin!

Did Bazzer actually make B2-Pros?

I would love to have a B2-Pro in a standard and a vented if they exist.

No he didn't, but I still feel the need to specify with any B drawing - partially for the n00bs. :)

One of the most versatile full sail kites. With magic sticks on mine, the 2 frame was good from 0 (true zero!) to 20 miles an hour.

Whoever wins this will be VERY happy.

This is possibly a very timely prize. I was looking for a particular B2 that none of the numerous stores I spoke with had. I called Rev to see if they had one. With all the changes with Rev's line-up over the past 6 months I asked about the future of the B2 . She said the B2's future will be discussed in a meeting this month.

The B2 might not be around too much longer.

it will be interesting to see how they handle things. They have all the specs. all they really need to do is change the panel layout and rename it. Same on the 1.5. Then again, they used "B" panel graphics on a Rev 1 without any thought, didn't finish the whole sail with a complete update, just graphics. 

So what the future holds ........?

Is the design patented under either a design or utility patent, or copyrighted by anyone? If not, they can continue making the same panel layout, and even continue calling it the B-Series in recognition of who designed it. The signature, since it will no longer be endorsed, would have to go, but they could still acknowledge the designer(s) of the kite directly on the sail if all parties involved agree to allow production to continue.

It would be a shame to force a great design into extinction and deprive those who buy and fly them of the pleasure. If the intent is to artificially inflate the value of existing models and put the purchase price beyond the reach of beginners, then they're on the right track because that is exactly what will happen. Most of those who first witness the precision of a quad-line kite already balk at the idea of spending more than $200, (What? You think I'm gonna spend $200? On a kite? Are you crazy?), and putting a quality design maybe not beyond some people's reach, but definitely beyond most people's consideration, will make introducing and "selling" our love of kiting to others more difficult than it is already.

As I see it, making the B-Series not available as a new build can only serve to decrease sales and profits, and the pleasure and satisfaction of those who would buy them. I would like to be able to replace worn sails with new. I am hoping for an amiable solution.

At this point - anything is possible, but seems improbable. But we'll see when Rev announces their sail lineup for next year - maybe??

That is the video that I show people, when they ask to see what kind of kites I fly or what does a quad kite look like.

      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.

      Ok, I have to admit I'm really excited about the possibilities with this one!
      The "win your very own JB for a Weekend" event is on again, but it's open to ANY country (including the USA) that normally allows US citizens to visit as a tourist... No matter what part of the world you live in, $10 (or more) could win you private lessons on YOUR HOME FIELD.
      NOTE: Tickets can NOT be ordered via TapaTalk or the KiteLife App, please visit the link below using a web browser (mobile or desktop like Safari or Chrome).
      Please see full terms below.
       

      YOURS TO WIN: All-day access for THREE FULL DAYS to pick my brain, learn and play, solo or team, dual or quad, indoor or outdoor, water flying, urban kiting, dogstake, competition skills, you name it, hang out, name anything (legal and platonic) that we can fit into three days and I'd genuinely love to participate with you.

      TERMS:
      I will quite literally be somebody's (or a group's) private instructor, kite bag boy, workshop presenter, team trainer or simple arm candy for all three days, the winner can share me around with other local fliers, your team, a club, or just keep the fun all to themselves.
        I will cover my own flight to meet with the winner at any major International airport to which US citizens can enter the country, on a mutually agreed date (any season), but no sooner than 21 days after the drawing.
        Winner provides basic lodging (couch or floorspace is acceptable) and local transportation for duration of the agreed visit, as it relates to the airport (pick up / drop off), kite flying and sleeping arrangements.
        Entry into this drawing is $10 per ticket with no limit to the number you can buy, all ticket numbers will be issued to the buyer via email (no refunds).
        Drawing will be held when the RESERVE of 350 tickets is sold, using RANDOM.ORG's 3RD PARTY DRAW SERVICE.
         
      NOTE: If you are near the airport in a neighboring country, we can also arrange to meet there do a pick-up / ride-across arrangement from there as long as those local arrangements are made by the winner and visiting as a tourist is allowable.
        IMPORTANT REMINDER: There is a reserve of 350 tickets that must be sold to make this economical on my end (cost of international flights and approximately 5-6 days away), drawing will stay open until all tickets have been sold.  
      By purchasing tickets, you acknowledge full understanding of all the terms above.
      NOTE: Tickets can NOT be ordered via TapaTalk or the KiteLife App, please visit the link below using a web browser (mobile or desktop like Safari or Chrome).
