Argh, too late!

I'm now the proud owner of an EXP. Erm, or rather, my girlfriend will be in a few weeks. It's wrong of me to be excited about someone else's Christmas present, right?

Thank you all -very- much for all your comments and help with my nubbish questions, it's greatly appreciated. It's lovely (and makes a refreshing change) to find a forum full of enthusiastic and helpful people rather than trolling idiots and pretentious w@nkers. I only joined the forum here to pose this question, but after the reception I've received I'll be loitering around I think.

\o/


I would stick hold of that Lady.Some of the single guys on here would love to get ther hands on her EXP.

Welcome onboard to ya both.

BRIAN... :)

Cougar,

In this day of individuals and governments breaking their budgets with abandon, it's great to see someone resisting the temptation to follow suit. With that in mind, it's great that you bought the EXP. I looked at Revs many years ago and decided that the one I wanted was too expensive. Wish now I'd of searched for an EXP equivalent or a used kite ... I missed years of fun.

As to loitering ... not really good form ... at least now that you're (your girlfriend is) truly interested in Revs. I think the whole family wants to know how she gets on with her new present. And, I'm sure several Brits have a bet on how long it takes before you'll need a second kite.

Cheers,
Tom

You are going to have to take the plunge some day, you canít be happy all your life.

Unless of course you fancy taking up singing? :innocent:

Pssssss ... come on guys ... what with his recent announcement, John is still all starry eyed. Don't be givin' him reason to pause.

Remember when you were kids and you'd jump in the water and tell your mates that it was really warm ... just to hear their screams when they jumped in? Tell John it's warm and comfortable ...

Cheers,
Tom

Conversely, it's much less hassle when you want to get a second kite, even if it's just for occasional use. And you won't get arrested for playing with it on the beach, or in bother for suggesting that your mates have a go.

Anyway. Guess what arrived this morning? (-: Really can't argue with that. I've not opened it yet, figure it'll be easier to wrap (for some value of "easy") if I leave it in the shipping cardboard. See my patience and restraint? I like to think that I've grown as a person.
