Hi

I hope I have posted this in the right place (forum mod - can you put me in the right place if I havent please?)

Im rather new to the whole world of kite flying in any form. I was introduced by a pal who let me fly his dual line stunt kite for a few hours whilst on a walking holiday. On my return home, google found me a local kite group who have been more than brilliant - I was almost immediately invited out to our local beach and taught to fly a dual line, but also saw the rev in action and have been hooked ever since! Now Ive finally aquired a few ( a vented and a sul I think - go gentle on me Ive def got "L" plates on still!) Im learning how to fly them, its a major buz when I get something right!

Ive been flying the rev for a whole six weeks now, and its taking over my life! I now go bed early on a friday so I can be up early for a full days flying sat and now sat night parties are on hold cos Im pooped from being on the beach all day!

Please excuse me, Ive been lurking on this forum for a while and absorbing all the advise and tips, so thought it was time I said hello!

Hi!

Much as other people to fly with is fun and a great learning experience - I still find flying my revs to be a very personal thing. One little thing upsets me or throws me even slightly off balance and I find the kite gets all jumpy. I love having people to watch and learn off, but I find I fly best when alone on the beach, just me and my kite - so dont depsair at being a lone flyer - its all good!
