A custom printed Rev from the workshop of the Gonzalez Bros in Spain. I have just taken delivery of it this evening. It has yet to be flown as it was bought and is sparred to give me a bit more scope in lighter winds and this evening was definitely more vented than SUL. A true case of “New kite Syndrome” you wait it will be at least three weeks now, until the wind drops below 10mph let alone drops down to real SUL speeds.

In true award ceremony tradition I would like to thank Stephen and Susan Hoath for their help, pulling my ideas together, making some artistic sense of them and for doing the technical stuff to produce the artwork.

I would also like to thank Pedro & Esteban González for all their efforts in brining the kite from behind the computer screen and into my kite bag. It truly is something special thanks Guys I am well chuffed.

Pictures here and here.

Looks great. Good move putting your name on it. That way nobody will accidentally think it's their's.

Hey Bob, I have always had difficulty in recognising you B4 :kid_devlish:

Noe it will be easy if the winds are light, just look for the guy holding the handles on one of the coolest kites I have seen for a while. :)

Very nice indeed. Are you going to start a trend for ultra-personalised Revs?

Im not sure I am the first, but I think that was the intension of the Gonzales Bros when they launched the idea, so personalised you can have literally any design you like providing its legal, they can even do photographs.

Thanks Flower, that was the intension, a bit like the new BMW Mini or VW Beatle, I wanted to move on to something new whilst acknowledging the past. I also wanted to include the duck from earlier custom work I have had done but the problem always was, How? when Revs spend so much time upside down, Susan cracked that one. Using head only, it works because he could be looking in from above. Thanks Susan genius.

Oh no, don't be silly, why would anyone want to sell a Rev?
