  1. While out doing a little team flying with the Revs last weekend at Ocean Shores, we experienced a rare phenomenon: static electricity building on the kite and lines, jumping off kite handles and from our shoes. Weather was cloudy with intermittent light drizzle and a light breeze, enough for a mid-vent but not quite a full-vent wind. There was no hint of lightning or thunder. Right after launching the kites for the first time, around 10am, the lines started humming. With thumbs positioned over the top of the handles, I started feeling a buzzing, light shock from the tip of the handle. Thinking

  11. My tip pivots and ladder moves were also a bit sloppy, then John told me to imagine flying straight forward before starting the turn up/down. Doing this made them a lot more crisp, and as you get the feel for it you can make the forward flight smaller and smaller until it's not perceptible by anyone watching, only by you flying the maneuver.
