I like the idea of slack line tricks with a rev, I was just excited to do flic flacs, I am now struggling through axels. Can do them once in a while, but not consistently...yet!

There's a Rev axel tutorial in the Kitelife subscribers section. ;)

Oh, did I mention we'll have a handful of bloopers on the new DVD too?

Hey John, I think that Paolo's video has a superb visual combination of kite and flyier at the same time!!

Hi all,

I've been reading through all these posts and I think everything is already nearly covered. Very good work.

I'd like to emphasize the beginners' part of your DVD, and the kind of video Paolo has done may help us newbies to speed up our learning.
Indeed, learning with a master near your side (and I am lucky because I meet weekly with four of them: Team Bolau) is the best and the enjoyable way of doing it.

But after less than a year of practicing with this kind of kites I still consider myself a beginner <_< , so I'd like to learn and stablish the basics well, while I'm eager to learn the advanced.

Cheers,

John,

Can you share any news regarding progress of the advanced DVD ? When might we be able to buy it ?

Ongoing project... SO much on the table. ;)

With luck, perhaps next fall ('08).

Haven't forgotten this project... Looking into scheduling 2 weeks next year, probably go camp on the Northwest USA coast with de Rooy in order to get it all done.

Still hoping for a Fall or Winter release next year. ;)

Actually dvd's do exist for different skill levels. The reason for longer handles is that they supply more break, and give more control in lighter winds.

I would love to see upward spins.

I would also be interested in a team flying video. My entire family now owns revs and by the time summer hits it would be great to have an instructional video about team flying, from basics to advanced. Anything that will help me keep the lines untangled.

That would be great.

Steve from Victoria does a very nice move where the kite does a slow and steady rotation as it crosses the window at near ground level- sort of like a slow clock spin while doing a side slide.

Some things I've seen in other videos and enjoyed:
street flying in unusual locations, like the old Flexifoil videos with Andy Preston & crew
out takes with bloopers, just to show that even the very best occasionally crash, like Dave Shenkman's Advanced Rev video
lots of location footage, like Dodd's old Fantasy Tour videos
maybe a slide show of great photos

If you cover team flying you have to include the calls on the soundtrack and maybe the split screen showing the team in the main picture and the kites in the insert as was done in the recent iQuad video. I know the format was criticised by others but as someone who is looking to get my head around team flying I found it helped to be able to link the calls to the moves.

Just my little penny's worth, if you could put the kite insert into the top right corner it would look better.

Taken under advisement. ;)

At this point, I'm just hoping to have enough free time in the January/February months to actually get this project done.

Thought about it a lot, there's just NO WAY I'm going to be able to fit a full length Advanced Rev DVD into my schedule, but it is totally feasible to start putting specific tutorials online in the Kitelife subscribers section, sorted by name, etc... Would anyone be interested in this?

Kite care and handling, assembly, tutorials on all skill levels and many variables of Rev flying (individual, team, dogstake, short line, etc, etc, etc)... Most of the stuff discussed in this thread, one piece at a time. Getting parts at a time may be a lot better than waiting who knows how long for this DVD.

Kitelife subscription rates are $2.95 monthly, $16.95 every 6-months and $32.95 yearly... All videos can be downloaded to YOUR computer for viewing anytime, and these would be available in MP4 format, ready for iPod/iPhone usage.

Let me know, I'll go for this new project idea if I get enough demand! :)

I think this is a great idea. Plus, it's updatable, can constantly change with new ideas and tutorials, and always be accessible to current subscribers! I point folks there a lot! now there will be one more great reason to be a member and support the efforts! :)

I think this is a great idea for many reasons, You can add little bits at a time and people can get what they really want to learn.

After time one could make their own customized collection for the things they want which everyone is different making this a great opportunity.

Plus the added bonus of not working John to death trying to accomplish so much in a short time could almost be a tutorial of the month or bi-monthly as opposed to waiting for how long until a finished product could be edited.

I give this idea 2 thumbs on handles up :kid_smartass:

... if I get enough demand! :)


Demand!!!

The idea of making a single DVD that contains all of the stuff that everyone has asked for has always seemed like an impossible task. By the time you complete the last item, the first one has a high probability of being outdated. And, new topics will have cropped up.

This way you can provide a table of contents ... everyone will know what's coming. Complete individual topics as time is available ... posting them while they are relevant. Prioritize to get the most relevant topics covered first. And, you could probably talk others into contributing scripts of what needs to be covered ... might be completed a little faster. Actually, you could have guest presenters for some of the topics.

Great idea ...
