  1. JB, I certainly hope that what I am attempting to point out isn't seen as vitriol? And my reference to my subscription was merely in reference to money allowing criticism to be expressed. I would also like to think that there is some integrity in restricting slamming of any business related to the kiting community. My whole point in posting wasn't to antagonise, rather it was simply done to highlight that negativity and he said, she said mentality only serves to create division.

  2. And as a result of your experiences, regardless of how right or wrong they are, you feel you have paid a due that gives a right to mock? Excuse me if I don't see the logic behind your thinking. Perhaps as a KiteLife Subscriber I should cash in my allowance of mockery and aimlessly belittle for the sake of making only myself feel better. You can spit on a rose, but it's still a rose. Soggy.

  3. I have been reluctant to post in this thread, and perhaps I shouldn't as I am only new to the scene and unaware of the history surrounding much of what has been said. Nonetheless, I do have to say that I honestly find much of the negativity towards Revolution Kites tasteless, and unnecessary. In business or in personal life, I feel that problems of any capacity remain between only the parties involved. Their product has enabled so much joy to so many people that to simply deride them on any level only creates division and do the kiting community a disservice. I respect that politics, opinion
  4. No longer for sale. My amazing fiancé, who I have the pleasure of marrying on the 17th said that she would rather me keep them than get rid of them at a lot less than what I paid. Yep, she's a keeper. Play on. Soggy. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  5. No real interest so far, and both still available. Anyone looking to get a bargain just PM me. Never been one to try and sell gear at top dollar...would much rather just get them out of my hair now that I have a few things on the bike to get sorted. As such, I am letting both of them go quite cheap for how new they are. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  6. If anyone interested, this is the bike I built and have fortunately got back. Attached is also a picture of the saddle with the latin phrase for My Father, My Hero.
  7. A long story short...in 2012 I built a custom motorbike dedicated to my dad who was suffering from Parkinsons at the time. Won best in category at a show, and in a moment of madness I sold it shortly after. Needless to say, a decision I always regretted, only more so with my father dying last year. Anyways, last week that very motorbike came up for sale from the guy I sold it to. A few mountains moved later, and I am blessed to have it back. The catch...not without a price. To afford it (a loose term coined by the financial institution who lent me the money), I am having to sacrifice all other

  9. By Tom Lochhaas, Sailing Expert Definition: Noun: The luff is the leading edge of a sail. On a mainsail, the luff attaches to the mast. The luff of a head sail, or jib, attaches to the forestay. Verb: Luffing refers to a shaking or movement of the leading edge of a sail when it is not in trim. For example, if the sail is let out too far for the wind’s direction, the leading edge may shake or start to blow inward. Tightening up the sheet usually corrects luffing. Verb: To “luff up” also refers to the act of turning the boat more into the wind, thereby causing the sail to luff. This may be do
  10. We got plenty to share lately Edmond as it hit 107.6 today in Perth [emoji91] Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  11. Ok, we shall assume that all food is catered for and the kite can't be used as a form of escape or travel. Has to be the one kite you get the most pleasure from and would want with you... Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  12. So if life were to put you on a deserted island where you were to live out your days eating coconuts and talking to Wilson, what kite would you want with you? You can only have one, and no stacks[emoji12] Soggy Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  13. Sounds good mate. Got news that my two B series left today so not long now. Santa flies quads this year! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  14. I can completely see the appeal of 30 foot lines and at the same time also understand how longer would be more forgiving. It is very much a case of creating subconscious muscle memories, and the few times I did well I was almost just 'doing' rather than having to think and then act. I found that in the middle of the window I could complete very simple movements with success, but that to recover it from a dive on the edge required more than just a repeat of what worked high and in the middle - apologies as I am probably not using correct terminology. Learning will very much be a case of repeat
  15. Just got home after meeting@SparkieRob and flying my first Rev. A few thoughts going through my head ATM; 1. Completely hooked already. 2. Learning curve meet Everest, Everest, learning curve (Best of mates for the moment) 3.@SparkieRob - Top bloke and cheers for letting me smash your kite all around the foreshore. 4. Can't wait to get the Standard B Series and the full-vent B series I have just ordered. Yup, had a blast. Soggy. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
