I still remember when I first saw a rev kite: it was a Rev II, blue with a bright pink logo in a shop which is since long closed called Sundance in Modena, Italy. I was there with my father who wanted to make me a gift for something school related or maybe a birthday. We walked out with a 2 lines stunt, Alivola Storm, which needed a ton of wind, flew insanely fast and resisted many crashes. But I still remember that odd double triangle shape with high contrast colours.
I've since moved to London and I now have a daughter, my father loaned us a parafoil from Decathlon and I discovered two things: first is that there is always a lot of wind here and second that my daughter enjoys flying kite
So I did it, I'm back into kites and I decided that it is time to try how four lines feels like.
If you happen to be at the Blackheath common or Avery Hill Park or some other SE park and you find a young girl flying a big red parafoil and someone crashing an orange EXP it is probably us. Come say hi!
In a way I kind of recognise the feeling, quite a lot of the discussions are Rev related. Of course it is not bad with a Rev related discussion, it is just that there are a bit few ongoing discussions of other kite types relatively. Much info is already in old posts. Is that the case for Revs as well (have not study the topic in depth)? Could it be so that there are (more obvious) things left to be said for Revs? Since I joined KL two months ago soon I've tried to do something about this, for what it is worth, with my still quite limited contribution, to "dualify" part of the discussion, initially through posting in various dualline topics and then by writing blog entries and discussing the contents in them.
(and if I would go quad line (and one day I will) I'd buy a Sky Knife or perhaps a Smithi Pro, most likely from some obscure desire not to be "mainstream")
You shouldn't -- at least not on this forum. Although there are lots of quad-line flyers here, the number of DLK and SLK flyers is greater than that, and most of the guys that fly Revs also fly dual and single-line kites too. This forum is a great place for anyone who flies kites of any kind.
