The sail appears to be backwards or something,, because the revolution logo is backwards.

Then the sticks would be on the wrong side too, I think you were right first time Gary, we are looking at the back of the kite.

Is the sail made without mesh screen material?

Was the logo printed on the back and front of the sail?

No that would not be it.
I had just done something with it.
The picture in the other thread shows the same REV. I think that photo was taken either less then a minute before or after this photo.

Do those little black spots near the center of the trailing edge have anything to do with it?

No, those are only for R-W-B tails.

Close enough!

It has done a FLIP landing and stabbed into the soft sand to hold it up.

That is why you see the back of the REV with the wind bellowing the sail away from the rods on the back.
You will also see the impression of the lines, going across the lower trailing edge pulling it in, slightly towards the lower tips.

There is nothing wrong with the kite, it's most likely a flip of the image itself.
