All ribbing aside, it's going to be a brilliant time... 30 students, 5-7 instructors, lots of new shared perspectives and skills, a great beach (and typically great wind - between 3 and 16 mph), new friends and TEAM FLYING. :clap;

I for one, can't wait!

The ribbing will keep me from thinking too much (I'll be too busy watching for the SLE) ...

I'm glad its going to be a full group since it means I can meet more people and can do some team. You know I'm doing this because I'm not sure I can make WSIKF, so it's good to have as many people as possible there so it becomes a mini-WSIKF for me. I'm going to miss out on all the other teams and top pilots that come to WSIKF, but it's going to be the next best thing.

Woohoo, what an AWESOME weekend!!

The power of the bubble kept us in good or tolerable weather most of the weekend, the average skill level between all fliers was really stunning and I saw noticeable improvement everywhere by the time folks started leaving on Sunday.

My favorite part... All the grins.

We had a great group, they made it magical for me - thank you so much! :)

Stay tuned for info about the team clinic in July, possibly another regular clinic sometime, and of course, more Rev fun at events around the country.

    • Help With Choosing a Revolution
      By joedc831
      I'm well-experienced with dual-line stunt kites, and am going to buy a Revolution quad.  In doing research, I'd like a better understanding of the differences I would experience between the Revolution EXP on the low-end, and the B-Series on the high-end.  I'm not really worried about the price difference, and I'd like to own a kite that can keep up as my skills continue to improve.  But I also don't want to waste money on a more expensive kite like the B-series or New York Minute if the flight characteristics are only marginally different than the EXP.  So in short, what makes the B-series a better kite than the EXP?  Also, does the mid-vent have the widest wind range?
    • Rev travel tote
      By Bongo
      I'm coming from a 2-line airfoil (seattle air gear) background, which I love, and it's super-packable for traveling.
      I saw some nice 4-line Revolution recently, and I'm considering getting the travel version of a 1.5, as I'd like to be able to fit it in a carry-on case.
      Are there any downsides to this travel tote model?  I presume it's slightly heavier, but will it make a huge difference?
    • New Rev Flyer
      By Hangar Pilot
      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 question is how do you know that you have the correct setup at the handle? Example how do you know you have the line length at the top and bottom correct? Is there a neutral position?
      Thanks in advance for your help!
    • Wakefield NE. Kite Festival and Hot Air Balloon Festival
      By mywindstuff
      My Wind Stuff will be hosting the first Family Kite Festival in Wakefield NE at the High School at 802 Highland St. , October 16,17,18 . We will start a short demo show on Friday afternoon up until the Hot Air Balloons launch around 4:30 then continue all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday. We will be displaying many large promotional pieces as well as teaching dual line and quad line basics . We always have a large selection of kites on hand for sale as well as offering kite repairs for most brands. Their should be plenty of space to fly even during the balloon launches in separate fields. The community ìs having a parade , craftshow , car show , 5k run/walk . Wakefield is not too far from Souix City Iowa or Omaha Nebraska , this is a great opportunity to come and show off your kites and flying talents to a community that sees very little kite flying. Let's help inspire these folks to the great world of Kiting! Free admission !Contact Curt at My Wind Stuff 785-483-1309 for additional information.
    • Viva la Colombia!
      By mystainedskin
      I have been quite busy....and embarrassed I have not done more than basic shares with this yet. Stay tuned.
      I had 3 short runs while there. A few really challenging moments with soooooooooo many kites in the air. Big lifters...a gajillion homemade kites flying on anything that could be used for flying line. Quite an experience... Even met some kite fliers from KiteLife that I didn't know about...from the Caribbean. Do the search.....you will be very impressed at some kite flying in different parts of the world...the competition and goals of competing are very different from what we see
      The clear box kite and crew are the ones I am referring to..they made this kite, along with some of the night kites in the hotel lobby. no test...launch it baby...let's see what it does! Awesome! I was so stoked to have a camera in the air
      Until then..... Enjoy some KAP photos from Cartagena, Colombia
