lwhump

wh-ump

verb

  • using arm motion and backward stride, to pull the flat of a sail toward you using all four lines in order to create pressure and flex in the frame, producing drive.

    "the pilot whumped his sail to load up and initiate forward flight"

    synonyms:

    load, initiate, kick, tap;

  • similar technique, applied very quickly to accentuate and power up through a short, precise movement.

    "he whumped his kite into a forward roll one foot above the ground, finishing in a solid forward 45 landing"

    synonyms:

    load, initiate, kick, tap;

One hint from the man himself ..too quote " I think the Rev silhouette would be best, "well loaded", as if it's just been whumped"........ if used

Reference whump material :

I will be excluding myself from the challenge as to remain unbiased. If anyone needs help or assistance

.....shoot me a p.m. without fear of me stealing your ideas :ani_victory:

...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?

Preferred file format is AI or SVG, but if you don't know what that means, a good napkin sketch could also win. :)

My only added requests...

No Rev logo.

No verbiage, other than the hook line for the shirt (re "whumping") and my URL (johnbarresi.com).

Don't think of Rev or KL as companies in the design, focus should be on flying (the experience).

I've also attached a copy of my logo if you'd like to try and incorporate it...

Rough is fine, we can clean up later. ;)

Scott, any chance you could add a couple of bold links to "whump" discussions as reference in your lead post?

I think the key here is not just the humor, but the actual "whump" ideology. :)

Without motion, It's hard to tell..but from the hand position...hmmmm. Sure got the right idea on shape for a "Whumping " to base your design off of :)

Can I use a hash tag (#gotwhump) or just the Whump?

Kind of sounds like a question my kids would ask...

Thinking out loud... Just fodder to used or discarded:

Sporty, modern, tribal, silhouette, live action...

This is really cool, can't wait to see some concepts! :)

No idea....is a bad idea, As John stated , it can be "cleaned up" in the later stages. This is all about ideas and being creative. So throw your thoughts out there. Everything in life starts from 1 simple thought.

I work on turkey day...I will whip up something and submit it to get the juices flowing.....just to prove ANYONE and ANY IDEA is good.

Maybe even submit your concept as a rough sketch to secure your idea? It can be improved upon and a final entry can be submitted before the end date. This is about everyone here...so any feedback will be taken into consideration to improve upon possible "future" concept drawing challenges :ani_whistling::g:

Now where is that smiley holding a http://www.johnbarresi.com sign? :sign_kitelife:

First Shot. Would definitely need a bit of tuning, but the idea is there. The kite is an actual outline of a whumped Rev from one of JB's videos.

Guess I will throw an idea hint out there for someone...... One of my original thoughts for a 2 sided shirt is actually posted in the first post and could be copy and pasted directly for the design with no modifications other than maybe color. In my thoughts it would be the front of the shirt , with the back consisting of more details from the same post. :) I have not mentioned this one to even John. SO we will see if someone gets it....

Hahaha, I thought of that too for the front. No idea what I'd put on the back yet though. I think some graphics would be nice, but what? Hmmmmmm.........

I decided against drawing on a napkin, so, I printed up a dozen of my design on some shirts... Pics in a few days.

      Kite aerial photo of a cute little church of St. Volbenk (Wolfgang of Regensburg) near Zelše, Slovenia.

      Could st. Volbenk be a patron saint of kite flyers? See the whole KAP session and learn more about the church and the saint on our KAP website!

      Alright Karma friends, in order to celebrate Valentine's Day in KiteLife fashion, this drawing is going to spread some kite love.  The lucky winner will get a $40 gift certificate from the kite shop of their choice (spreading the love to the folks that feed our need) and a 1 year subscription to KiteLife, either a renewal or a new subscription for the winner or gifted to a friend (gotta send some love to @John Barresi who makes all of this possible).  
      PAY CLOSE ATTENTION, BECAUSE I'M THROWING IN AN ENTRY TWIST!!!!
      To enter post "I'm in" or some variant thereof PLUS tell me why you love kites.  
      The RNG is going to choose the winner at some point on Valentine's day and I'll accept entries right up until the drawing.
      +++++++
      Some rules and guidelines:
      Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins.
      Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States.
      RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.
      You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks.
      Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma!
      This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it.
      When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it. 
      The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it.
      Good luck, and have fun!

      I bought this kite a few years back with the plans to take kite flying to a different level .... due to life changes this kite was only flown once maybe twice.   It is in new condition.  I assembled the kite the other night and I had forgot just how nice a kite this is. 
      $325.00 plus shipping
      I have no strings to go with the kite
