Well after 12 years of flying my first Rev 1.5 SLE I finally decided to hang her up on the wall. We have had a lot of good flights together. I first flew her in Newport, Rhode Island at Brenton Point with my uncle, Jay Nunes. Shortly after I flew it I smashed it into the ground and broke a rod but lucky me, Sue gave me a brand new one to replace it. I have a lot of good memories thanks to this Rev. I still remember the first time I hovered it. I owe that to watching Scotty and drooling at his hovers. I have chase my kite on 75ft lines trying to catch it and I have dove into rip tides in North Carolina after hovering a little to close to the waves for a sweet picture. The Rev family has taught me a lot of cool tricks and after about 3 years of non stop deployments I finally have to time to take my 4 new Revs out of the garage and hang my first on the wall in my man cave to pay tribute to all the fun that it brought me as a child. Thanks Revolution Kites and thanks for the support everyone has given me on my deployments. I am going to need it in November when I head out yet again!!

I have two retired Rev photos to share...

#1 - My blues from the first set of SLEs (pre B-Series) that iQuad got in October of 2006, these 3 Revs saw TONS of travel/airtime and a lot of "key" moments for our team in just one year.

#2 - One of my old, old Rev I's that I had signed by nearly 50 people over the course of 2-3 events in 1994 when I thought I was retiring from kiting for good (boy, was I mistaken).

photo 2.JPG

They have a place of honor on the wall in my kite room, a lot of memories every time I look at them. :)

Sort of, but like at your house, the kite room is both man and woman's cave. :D
