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 :

So whip out your pencils,pens,and keyboards and get to work! The clock is ticking...... Good Luck! :sign_kitelife:

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?

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. ;)

Entry designs and drawings should still be posted within this thread for review.

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:

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....

      View Advert OSKUSA Exodus Full Sail and Exodus Max Vented
      For Sale is an OSKUSA Exodus Full/Standard sail kite and an OSKUSA Exodus Max Vented kite. Both were bought in 3/2019 from Ocean Shores Kites. This is the newest version of these kites; check the logo placement on the top RH side of the sails. These kites have A-Holes instead of mesh on the leading edge. They also have Center T's on the leading edge to hold the vertical spars.  Both kites have Crystal T2 frames, come with a canvas bag, and include an extra endcap with bungee. The two kites are in excellent/great condition.
      Asking $275 for both, but am willing to sell them individually for $145 each. PayPal payment only. I will provide free shipping. Will sell to USA only.
      Please message me with any questions or additional photos. THX!
