I am pleased to say that Warpspeed has taken the giant leap and ordered a rev, following his borrowing the Hoverers trail loan kit. This should arrive in a few weeks.

This means the loan kit of a super-vented and a custom standard sail, complete with fram, lines, handles, etc, etc (in fact everything you would need to give rev flying a go) will shortly be available for someone new to the sport.

If anyone comes across someone who would benefit, or indeed if there are any newbies lurking here, please get in contact with me by PM.

.....As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted ;)

Once the kit had become re-available we have another taker, Ian, based in Southampton to give rev flying a go. He and his brother flew with me in Weston-Super-Mare yesterday, and Ian would like to see if he really likes the sport as much as he did in the first hour.

Looks like we are missing a few posts off this thread....

To repeat .... when the kit comes back into stock let me know and I will tie another bridle to replace the missing one...

Hi,

Just passed the loan kit over to the next newcomer, we had a nice fly at Lordshill, Southampton on Friday. All the kit working nicely but a bridle to fit the vented would be great so that you can switch frames between the two sails easily. Best to pass them on to Mr J for a handover.

Thanks again everyone for the loan of the kit to get us started. We are now proud owners of a JB 1.5 vented in the new light blue with race frame, check out our gallery pictures from this weekend.

All the best from WarpSpeed and Missus W
God does not deduct the hours from a person's life that they spend flying a Kite....

Looking forward to flying with you both soon now that the weather is better.

You're right about the bridle - it is a pain to swap the one you have over. I thought someone was making one up for you after you mentioned it right at the start, but I guess they didn't. I will see what I can sort out for Ian (the new borrower)

Hey Mike

Wish you'd said, it's really easy to make a new bridle (I could have rustled one up for you).

It takes some patience to get it spot on, but it's not impossible.
I've made my own from scratch for my quad IIs.

And once you have a bridle it only takes less than 5 minutes to swap a bridle from one kite to another if need be.
(But obviously a total novice could get into a headspin over it).

Or you can just buy a proper Rev bridle.

Enjoy that new Caribbean blue ;)

[edit: just noticed on your photo - I actually prefer the sail that way around ;) - Logo on the back (in this case it was deliberate) ]

Hi Folks, if you post the dates of when your going to be in Weston S Mare next, i'll do my utmost to come along.
I'm based in Swansea, but travelling is not a problem for some good flying and some invaluable advice as i'm 100% new to Rev's.
The great Bay of E's has provided me with an EXP and a Blast (need handles & lines for this one, Kiteworks.co.uk [Chalkies]on payday methinks) and i'm going to need some advice, tips & tuition to master the art.
If you do decide on a group fly, an invitation would be appreciated

Cheers
Tim

Hey Tim,

I'm sure they'll be plenty of folks to give you some good pointers @ Bristol (if not before).

Enjoy your journey ;)
