Edit: August 21 2017 - Follow my Rev Kite learning journey (from day zero to present) in this thread!! Join me, share the failures and achievements, feel free to chime in if you read something you experienced too!
I'm brand spanking new hoping to make some awesome new kite friends in the San Francisco Bay area..I'm in Santa Clara and frequent the Kite Lot in Mountain view by Google, flying RC stuff secretly.
Ive done research and know there's a Bay Area kite sport league or something, and big kite groups up in Berkeley.
That's just too far for my tight schedule.
So hoping to meet some folks around closer here that will be willing to "take me under their wing" (or kite).
I'm madly interested in the Rev kites.
Actually I'm this close to dropping my wallet for the new EXP Rx kite, but at the same time, I really rather just get the Classic 1.5 and spend longer in the learning curve.
I don't mean to start anything with the kite naming here, I'm just going with what is available to me today as a new comer. I am aware of the history of Rev and the whole rebranding debacle that happened recently (yes, I've been lurking and researching a ton on Rev kites already even though I've never touched one yet)
A mentor and flying friend on the weekends will be awesome, hoping to meet someone really soon whos willing to help guide me to my first purchase. The summer is already here and the winds are insane!
Thanks and appreciate all of you.

Ljubljana Marshes and Ljubljanica river flowing through it are a very important archaeological site in Slovenia. We flew our kite above the place where a Roman boundary stone was found, resolving the question of administrative location of Colonia Iulia Emona (precursor of today's Ljubljana) within the Roman Empire.

Kite science: how to defend fragile habitats against invasive weeds - with a kite!
Aerial photos cah help in assesing the number of invasive plants in an ecosystem. Kite aerial photos even more so, as the kite is way eco friendly than other alternatives ... you just don't go buzzing above an important habitat scaring the hell out of everyone (especially them protected species)!😉

Well, maybe this topic should be in the KAP forum, but we got to ask -
did you ever flew a kite where you felt you shouldn't?
We did a kite aerial photography session above a cemetery - and it felt wrong ... our plan was to fly the kite directly above it ant to shoot straight down, but we just couldn't do that - so we flew the kite beside the cemetery ... it was like we were invasive and disrespectful ... like the fun that goes with flying a kite was somehow inappropriate for the place.
Had any of you a similar experience?
