On Monday night, around 6pm, my area had a microburst. Our driveway isn't exactly graded properly, so a ton of water came into the garage. The garage is attached to a workroom and my office in the finished basement. Let's just say I need new carpet, and new paneling.
However, in cleaning the workroom, my lovely wife made a discovery. Back in like 1991 or 1992, she bought me a dual line kite (back when all I knew was the term stunt kite). I flew it for a few years, then kind of dropped out of the kite scene because of whatever reasons.
I bet you can see where this is going. It's a Griffin III, I think. 8 foot wingspan. I put it together to see it's condition. The sail looks to be in good shape. The struts seemed to be solid, though I didn't actually test it. I think the bridle lines are not in good shape, there was a powdery residue on them. No water got near the bag, so there's no damage from that. I'm excited to get it in the air again.

I bought a Rev indoor, on a whim. Its Red White and Blue. In nearly new condition and it will come with a brand new set of lines, but no handles, as it didn't come to me with any.
As Quads are my thing, I am looking for another rev, or other quad line kite WHY?? Possible PX with cash either way for the right kite.
I am located in Cornwall UK but willing to post.

Both activities aim for technique and reliability improvement, both can keep you occupied by analyzing/planning between the sessions, both are directly dependent on your performance, both affects an item at a distance (kind of triggering similar feelings of control), both are (mechanical and fluid dynamics) hi-tech, both can be done outdoors as well as indoors and both can make you sweat.
The makeshift (or first iteration?) handles are there to make the line length adjustable since I didn't know what line length to use during this first indoor session. The (initial) bridle setting visible in the image made it very difficult to launch the kite first.
