923 downloadsAnother in the ongoing series of Kitelife Magazine tutorials for using Revolution quad line kites, this one detailing the dynamic of Sail Loading wherein the pilot is able to compress and decompress wind in the sail at will, using that pressure and added control to flex and unflex the frame, creating a far greater range of movement in varying wind conditions. One of the greatest uses for Sail Loading is that it also serves to minimize the amount of input required, instead relying on increased or decreased pressure to enhance smaller inputs. NOTE: A reliable (and free) cross-platform video player is VLC, which should work with any file format including MKV.

If anyone needs help or assistance .....shoot me a p.m. without fear of me stealing your ideas ...and for some humor associated.... Hi! My name is Scott. I fly Revs and I'm a Whumper.. I didn't always Whump...Very little Whump involved in the beginning. But once I tried Whump..I knew right then and there, I couldn't Whump enough. In high wind I Whump a little less...In low wind I Whump a whole lot more. As a matter of fact, I will be Whumping not too long from now..Probably a mild Whump. So my Whumping question to you is........... Got Whump?
