  1. Well, today i went flying with my Rev1.5 SLE...Winds were around 10-15 mph with temperature at 34 degrees..flew about an hour until winds started to get erratic.. decided to pack it in...suddonly a super gust came up..caught me off guard and down came the Rev1.5 right on top of a fence...Now here is the strange weird result...The SLE wedged itself horizonally between the wire fencing, bracing and crossbar...It snapped the SLE about 4" from end.. However, the bright side is No Damage to Sail !!...How the sail escaped from being ripped was a stroke of luck...End of Story..But i do have a question.. my question is concerning repair..should i replace with another SLE or with a standard leading edge?.. i Do have another Rev1.5 SLE... Kram...btw, i was in a groove today with Rev.1.5...all was going so well...kinda reminds me of Caddy Shack when the Golfer had the best day golfing in his life until he was struck by lightning....One of my all time favorite movies.
  2. Merry Christmas & Best of New Year to all...As for the past year, thank you kitelife and to contributors of this forum on making me a better kite pilot by sharing their knowledge on flying techniques, kite tuning, etc....and mostly, convincing me the thrill of the Quad Revolution... Kram
  3. rob, Nice job ...I didn't even know the Rev's could do that many tricks!! ..How was the Rev 1 "enhanced"...Was this info on a separate thread?....also, what length and wt lines were you using in the 8-12mph winds?...and, We want Video kram...kitelife subscriber #5

    rob, i especially like the graphics & chosen colors of the red/black/white/grey series Level One kites...would you identify each model in both photos...also, were these custom made or regular stock? kam...kitelife Subscriber #5
  8. Just to give everybody fair warning, i'm now a REV 1.5 SLE owner & pilot (loosley stated)...This quad head forum finally convinced me to make the purchasing move...I blame it all on Penny, monkey, dorsal, revflier, cltkiter, and most of all John Barresi for those dawg-gad fabulous quad videos...making me to believe "i can do that"...Well, today i flew it in 8-12mph steady winds...so much to learn...so much to learn...but i luv it! kram...kitelife subscriber #5
  9. Has anyone else viewed the Weather Channel video of the man Parafoil Kite Surfin' with Hurricane Ophelia?...jim Cantore (weather channel storm chaser)) was on hand at Nags Head, N. Carolina and showed the video...jim c. said wind surfer was an experienced professional...This video is really amazing to see... i searched various web sites trying to locate this video, but without success..If, some one can find a link please post...

  11. John & Geezer, great job on your day 0 update report...Very thoughtful to give mention/recognition to Chinook Winds one the supporting sponsers... For the last several days i've searched the kite sites for WSKC memoribilia...so far, haven't found any WSKC "Stuff" online..I especially would like to know if there are Pins, Tee's and Sweatshirts available ?...If there is , how would a kiter living in Indiana find a way to purchase those items ?..

    air-yo

    i really like the Air-yo's...I suggest taking your time on developing your skill level...Once you learn the basics and get the "feel" of the Air-Yo, crashes and other mishaps will be less likely...If you haven't done so already, the best & easiast way to assemble the Air-Yo is by using clothes pins...
