Hi there,

My name is Remco , nickname Remmie.
I'm 36 years old , married , two kids and I'm from The Netherlands.
Kiting is a hobby for 7 years now , first I started with powerkites , a couple of years later I bought a mountainboard and a peter Lynn Twinskin (Venom 13) for kite landboarding.
One and a half years ago I met madquad , he introduced me to rev kiting , not much later I bought my first rev , a exp.
Since 6 months I am the proud owner of 2 B-series (standard and vented) and a "string" rev , the last one is a rev for realy strong winds.
I've ordered a mid-vent B-series also , I expect that it will be arrive very soon.
Madquad introduced me to Stack also , in 2010 I will competing in the dutch Stack championship.
I've learned a lot from madquad , so he better watch out for the coming season Posted Image .
I hope to learn a lot on this forum , it's good for my english also Posted Image .
It's a little bit early but I Like to say: Happy New Year, all the best for 2010!!

Remco/Remmie

Welcome to the dark side Giampiero.
We all look forward to hearing a lot from you on this forum.

To my knowledge the majority of the Revolution quad line fliers in Italy live in the north. My very good friend the multiple time European Champion Guido Maiocchi lives in Milano. There are a number of others going from Milano, south to Genoa, east to Bolgna and on to Venezia. Look into the STACK Italy forum at: http://www.stackitalia.com/forum/ I am sure they can tell you more where to find the Revolution quadline fliers in Italy.
Please also send my greetings to everyone there.
