ProFile: The Decorators

No one has been flying Revolution four-line kites in a team longer than London-based The Decorators… Featuring a veritable who’s who of team rotating members over their 20+ year history, they are still creating and pushing the envelope of Rev team flying and have served as an inspiration to many of the teams and fliers […]

Issue 74: A Novice Position in the Mega Grid

100 Rev kites in a 10 x 10 stable grid formation…. That was the plan, but it came up 36 kites shy yet still broke the world record of 55 by a not-so-shabby margin of nine kites. There is no doubt that the current record of 64 will be broken and to do that Rev […]

Issue 73: Kites… Life.

One of my primary areas of focus and interest over the past 2-3 years is the obvious lack of cohesion and growth in the North American dual line kiting community, evidenced by less competitors, fewer dual line teams at World Championships and even fewer full time dual line teams in North America… Now bear in […]

Issue 49: REVisions: Team Up!

Apparently, my trip to France in April still hasn’t really left my brain yet.

World Cup has been […]

Issue 2: Bongo Hotline

Team Scene “Dont’ Panic” from Washington has downgraded the plans for this year. Team leader Jim Barber reports that his successful kite shop’s busy season will prevent them from contesting the early season events. With those events (including the AKM) being in the Eastern half of the US, it would take a tremendous amount of […]

Issue 1: Quest for the World Cup

Phew……..What a year!!! For Sky Dance 1996 had been quite a year. Winning the European title for the 2nd year in a row had seemed unbelievable, but when in Japan we had taken the World title from Airkraft our year was complete. We all had holidays to wind down from the excitement and attended a […]
