Holy cow John! I had Rev 2 posted for 2-3 minutes, looked at the pic again, then edited my post. You must be watching this forum like a hawk! ; )
How about St. Moritz, Switzerland

Right on!
For those interested in this super luxurious place look at:
http://www.stmoritz.ch/

I have been there a few times in the off-season during the 90s and fortunately had free accommodations each time.
Some of my photos are at:

Fraser,
I'm happy that you're doing alright now. Hopefully kite flying helps your rehabilitation. : )

In the fall of 1989 I fell down a flight of stairs and cracked my wrist and dislocated my shoulder, which required surgery to my shoulder. I didn't want to quit flying, so I learned to fly a stunt kite with my hips during my rehabiliation time, then a few months later in early 1990, I started flying two kites at one time (hips and hands). I also learned to fly a routine where I would fly a Rev and a dual line at the same time in 1990. So kite flying was good rehab for me, as I hope it is for you. : )

I don't know if this qualifies as a mystery photo or not, but I just caught this unknown flyer on a webcam a few minutes ago! Hee!

Who is flying the REV?

It's definitely Ocean City, MD. Here's another pic, probably as close as he had gotten to the cam. I'm hoping he reads this forum!

It may be Karl Berg, but, his sails are typically those colours, but he's not on the net at all so we can't confirm.

I love the fact that all those people are walking past oblivious to the kite above them. :sign_kitelife:

Down in Wildwood we call that "boardwalk abuse". It's great; you fly over people that are walking and see how long it takes them to realize that somebody....er..........someTHING is following them. What great fun :D

Happy flying to everybody. Now get off the computer and get a kite out! hehe

Heheheheh! I bet! WW's beach & boardwalk is the perfect setup for such fun. :D

What's funny about these pics is that it's a site a normally buzz by once or twice a day due to the cool kiteage they put up. When I first saw this guy, his kite wasn't on screen at all. I looked at his hands and thought..."he's gotta be a rev flyer!". So I stuck around the site a little longer. :?

I don't think that is Carl Berg either, the leading edge is too straight for beach conditions to be anything else. Somebody's flying a stock SLE set of tubes and that's not one of the usual suspects I fly with in competition.

It could very well be someone who works for the Kite Loft as they'll usually fly in front of the camera. However, this guy isn't wearing any of the store's company shirts I've seen.

Your pics are proving to be the true mystery pics! ; )

Here's an idea. E-mail the pic to the kite Loft and ask them to print the pic and place it on their counter or wall, with a sign next to it that says "Is this you?" Whoever the person is, is bound to speak up if they frequent the store a lot. Have the store e-mail you back when/if they find the mystery Rev flyer. : )
