I'm currently going through the photographs and movie files from the festival last weekend.

Wow: MEGATEAM rainbow *burst* is really great :)

Will upload photos soon... the non rev ones will appear over on the kitelife gallery as usual.

P.S. most played track today has to be "At the River" :throb:

Hi all,

Another link to some nice pics from Oostende.

http://www.designkit...s/index_new.php

Choose Oostende.

Check the Rev-Pics.

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

Hello Madquad,
those are the 'official' photos of the whole event I gather ?

Shame they did not get any of us all down on the beach 2 teams side by side on the Sunday afternoon!

Madquad you ought to upload your picture of the Team 4 Fun's night light revs :)

Choccy,

It was great meeting you all, this weekend has been a blast for me, my first time flying in team.
I learned a lot, a great motivation boost, it seems my wife is considering flying rev's to :) So who know next we meet we could fly with 4.
We will come to the Bristol Festival end august and if I can clear my work calendar we should be able to hop over the channel to go to Portsmouth for a day also

looking forward to meet you all again

Good Winds,

Outsync

Hello Outsync

That's really great to hear your wife is considering flying revs too.... :)

Hope to see you in the summer.

PS it was our first *proper* go at large team team flying where the moves merged together nicely :)

Ok I know it is 'off topic' but the inflatable kites do have a big part to play at festivals.
So I have put the pictures over on kitelife gallery for those who wish to have a look here - Day 1.

Paint the sky with colour ;)

I'm a big fan of the Dark Side, in both senses of the word. But a copy of the iconic record cover on a rev doesn't do it form me. The simplicity of a dead straight beam of light, bent and resolved into a dead straight rainbow of colours is what make the cover so memorable. But on a rev it is deformed by the vertical frame, rendering the design confusing at best.

(Oh Lordy, I seem to have come over all Camden watching the South Bank Show! Sorry, I'll pull myself together!)
