Hi,



Sometimes you got to do something ridiculous and pointless just to keep things fresh and to keep yourself entertained. Here's my first crappy attempt to fly a Revolution kite with the handles inverted.

Enjoy :)

For some more fun, you might want to try this. Like so many other fun things, you will need to find a willing partner.

Oh, I did try flying with my handles inverted.

Fun,,,,but not nearly as nice as having your arm around a nice lady and the both of you flying the same kite. Not even close.

Trust me. :)

Thought (Oh no, not one of those)

JB ,,,,,,,,,, Give it a go with TK. Perhaps at WSIKF we could give a 4/2 fly a try. If it works out, it might be fun, it not, we don't have to do it again.
