Thanks, All the photos were taken a few hours ago. I then processed them in Adobe Photoshop CS3.
If you want to play around with Photoshop, you can download a fully functional 30 day trial version for free. It is an expensive item to purchase, but there are ways around that. Just become a student at a recognized university or similar, then you can buy at academic prices for peanuts.

The single winder winding idea I presume came from Joe Hadzicki. It was in all of the early videos shipped with REVs. John B was just a young teenager back then.

When I fly REVs I always carry my winder in my back pocket. I almost always wear jeans or jean shorts, thus they don't fall out of my pocket.
I tie the top line of both handle together for two reasons. 1. to keep the pair from getting separated. 2. To hang them over my neck when they are not on the lines or in my kite bag. That way I never loose them. I never never leave them on the ground without the lines attached to them.

John, I like that bungee setup on your winder it seems to hold down the line in more places then a standard single bungee, thanks for posting that i'm going to try that tie down method.

My top tip is to fly as often as possible! I have flown quad line foils for a few years now (please don't shout at me!) and became a rev convert a year ago. It's a strange thing, but I find if you leave a kite in it's bag for more than about a week, it seems to be more tangled when it comes out. Flying everyday seems to solve all these problems for no good reason at all :blue_wink:

Jeremy, are you just teasing ? ;) :P
If not then they are the power/traction kites: maybe we used the terminology wrong :w00t:

Yep John - you got it bang on the mark. :)

At the office today we also hid someones car - managed to sneak their keys out their coat and have parked it on the pedestrian bridge over part of Portsmouth Harbour. She still hasn't seen it, even though the bridge is just outside her office window.

Just had a thought, if you never pack your Rev away you will never have to wind the lines in. And it will be ready to fly instantly.

You will just have to set a Rev up at ALL the places you might ever fly, and it will always be ready when you come back.

I wind on the handles 99% of the time. Easy on, easy off. It only causes problems when you decide to fly with different lines. Normally I keep 80' on one set and 30' on the other and I am ready fly most of the time. Today I realized I was going to need the 120's this weekend so I had had to strip the 80's. The fun part was I decided sense these lines are out I should fly. The bad part was I was in the side yard. Talk about choppy winds!! It was a challenge to say the least. The wind swirling around houses would turn 90 degrees in a heart beat. As usual it was fun. :kid_content: When it was over I put the lines up on a winder and I am ready for the weekend.
