On the basis that 10 days have passed since Jonesey last bought a kite, I am certain the Blast will be ordered this week Whether the Easter eggs arrive or not is another matter.
It is just a shame that there is 30kts forecast for the next 7 days!
Still, I shall doughtless be laughing loudly as I hang onto his ankles while he is towed around the south coast of England!

Ok, ok... My name is Alden, I am a revaholic!

I just got of the phone with Kent. My Black/Blue/White Blast 2-4 is on it's way to me.

If I can't fly it I know where to come for advice.

Just got back from there. Oh Boy Sparky, you're going to really love Qingdao, not. I should take a blast to amuse yourself with while the team makes their way to the leeward mark. ;)

If you plan to get at least one of each Rev made, and most of us will, it's never too soon. :lol:

I think you already were, what took you so long ? :P
I'd say you'd spread it but for obvious reasons I am immune,

It's not here yet. There was a little confusion on the color selection at first. A nice red and white one should be on it's way being shipped direct from the factory.

Hopefully it will get here at the latest by Monday (my birthday).

I've been thinking alot lately about maybe doing a progressive speed stack with a Super Sonic or Shaockwave, Blast and and Power Blast 2-4

Then I think for 1 they should change the name of the Power Blast 2-4 to 2-4 mph because anything after that you'll end up tying your shoes without bending over eventually.

So what would a progressive stack of speed series be like knowing what the 2-4 alone does? Guess we'll have to find out this spring :kid_devlish:

Might be something to do at Wildwood to add to the many shennanigans that will be happening.

I am picturing a nice heavy rope belt with a boat anchor that will dig into the sand for you. Coil up some extra loops of rope and don't get your feet caught in it. When you get dragged more than fifteen or twenty feet it will set the anchor and keep you from being dragged all the way to Cape May.
