Ok, in 15 years, I have seen a LOT of Rev videos. Some truly wild ones! But, this one is truly different from all the rest, I have NEVER seen this done before and DAMN I'd sure like to try it!

Santa Ben just sent this over, check it out. Make popcorn!

Fantastic video ... looks like it was filmed at Torrey Pines air park just north of San Diego. The last minute of the video gave away the configuration of the chute pilot and Rev pilot ... back-to-back. Who was the Rev pilot? Adds new meaning to the term "pairs flying".

Cheers,
Tom

That's taking KAP to a new level. Let me see . . . flying a kite while riding a kite (foil). I think they just divided by zero . . .. . . as Wayne said, I think we've been mathmatically eliminated from the video contest.

You know, sometimes somebody just has to take it to another level. This one goes to eleven. 11 11 11 11 All the way across . . .

That's just what I was thinking as I watched it. Anyone who has flown from a hilltop knows how hard it can be to break the instinct not to fly below the horizon.

Just. Awesome.
