  1. Basic question here is what would be a good age and most important SAFE age and weight to get into kite sports? He will be 8 years old 2 week in August 2020. He is adventurous, average build, fairly smart and sensible. He is now 60 Lbs/27 kilos but has never flown kits before and I was thinking of getting him some form or entry training kits he could learn to fly rather then get pulled. Also these kinds of kits unlike the average toy shop one tend to be easy to launch. But I want him safe, not terrified or hurt and not to put his protective mum (ie sis) off

    Full tutorial detailing the line winding and unwinding methods developed by John Barresi and Team iQuad out on the field, over the course of over one hundred festivals worldwide since 2006. One of the recurring issues we've heard from Rev fliers, especially newer pilots, is the frequency of twists and tangles when folks set up their kite to fly but using this method correctly, any flier can set up in 3-5 minutes without fail and roughly the same to pack up at the end of the day.

  4. Hi so I am new here and I currently fly a prism E3 and have a decent amount of dual line experience. I saw revs and I knew I had to get one for summer break. But I am really not sure which one to get. I would like one that I can learn on and then move up to a-lot more advanced things. I really want the full experience. I have never owned or flown a rev before and any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks - Jake
  5. 3/4 of a year ago my old time kite guru from the end of the nineties, @Anders Matson, suddenly surfaced on KiteLife and back "into existence" (a very subjective statement on my side) last summer after say 18 years. Anders lives on the west coast, while I live on the east coast (of Sweden i.e.). About a month ago he kindly sent me an animation and an illustrated document describing a QLK kite routine and when I asked he allowed me to share them (they are attached at the end of this post). The kite routine will be performed as a part of the 20th anniversary celebrating Nordic Kite Meeting ( htt

  14. Hi all. This a continuation of my introduction thread found right here Basically I'm a new flyer who had a paimpol expresso, just got a prism hypnotist (haven't got it in the air yet) and just asking questions around So my latest inquiry is: Is there a noticeable difference between a brandname dyneema line like the one sold by prism and a dyneema line sold on ebay? (I know dyneema is a brand name. but you get what i mean). and just because: here's a pic
  15. Hello! My name is Jason, I am from Melbourne Australia. I was recently introduced to a 2 line stunt kite by my brother in law, and I was hooked! I did some research online and am now the proud owner of a Prism Quantum and a 75 foot tube tail. I have had a few outings with it already, and I am sure you are probably not surprised to learn that I am already waiting on replacement center T as a result of some high speed soil samples. So in the meantime I was hoping for some advice and suggestions! What would you consider "must have" accessories? Is there a list o
  16. Hello! I am looking for a first dual line kite. I have no experience, but could always get those those old plastic grocery store kites to do loops, etc. I've been looking a bit and I thought that Prism Nexus looked like something that could take me from beginner into entry-level intermediate. After reading on the forums, I'm not so sure. I'm in the Midwest in the USA, so wind can be a problem, but there's lots of open space in which to fly! Looking for thoughts, recommendations, and maybe even someone who has a great used beginner kite for sale! I appreciate any advice
  17. *****EVENT CANCELED***** This workshop is specifically tailored for first time, beginner and intermediate quad fliers who want to try their hand at team flying - if you're able to launch, hold a basic upright hover for a few seconds, fly a little left, a little a right and back down to the ground (land), you're ready for this class! It is strongly suggested that you have attend (or have attended) one of our past Quad Clinics or Rev 101 sessions, as there is key equipment knowledge (set up, etc) that really should precede team flying. Fliers MUST bring 120 ft lines to participate, as

    Another in the ongoing series of Kitelife Magazine tutorials for using Revolution quad line kites, this one detailing how to equalize your lines, ensuring equal length between right and left.All types of line stretch or "settle in" over time and will eventually end up uneven by varying amounts which effects the accuracy of your inputs accordingly... You'll be amazed at how the kite responds more accurately, and how easy it actually is to balance out your line lengths.

  25. I purchased a Rev 1.5 SLE back some time ago. There is a long list of thinks that kept me from flying it. But glad to say I'm leaving for the beach in the morning and it's packed in the truck. I've watched all of the training videos on the Rev kites but I don't seem to find anything about the first launch for a beginner quad person. So my first question is do you try to start inverted with the handles staked like the gentleman shows in the line management video and make the kite roll over, or set it in the upright position with the top leaning back to keep it on the ground? My second questi
