Hi friends and family!

Sitting here at the KTAI show with Ben, we just went all through it and I'm pleased to announce...

Rev has just rolled out their new website (produced by Codemunk.com)!

No more "the shape..." splash screen on main URL, take a look - http://www.revkites.com

What I'd like, for those who are willing, is to have you bash your way around the new site and let me know if there are any broken links, etc.

Suggestions are welcome too, but my first concern right now is just to make sure I don't have anything NOT working. ;)

Thanks guys, enjoy - spread the news. ;)

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

Big improvement. This would have made life a bit easier for me when I was self-teaching in Maine 18 months ago. Some of the pages load a bit slow, and the video page looks like it is full of broken links (although they work if you click on 'em)

YAY! Soooo Nice & Organized! Very easy to find things! I'm glad that you had gotten rid of the title page, people want to get straight to the info, yanno? I'm also digging all of the info tabs and video samples for each of the different kites. Very Nice! Had some problems with image links missing, but I see that you'e fixed them already! :clap;

Well, you asked...I like the easier navigation on the left side of the window.
I think the home page is too busy though. It looks cluttered, partly because of the busy look of the "Our Products" photo and the "Find a Store Photo". The teal background of the colorizer photo is an old school color and doesn't blend with the rest of the page, adding to the cluttered look, imho.

I think the main page should focus on selling and describing the product. Showing what a cool and exciting thing a Rev is. Right now, someone coming to the page is overwhelmed and doesn't know where to look first.

Maybe a separate page about buying the kite which would have the info on spars, the colorizer, and where to buy.

I also noticed some typos and grammar errors on the bio page...

Hi John,

Looks good in Firefox.


I am getting a 404 on the (LIMITED SERIES – CHECK FOR AVAILABILITY)
 link on Bazzer Poulter's Page and Carl Robertshaw's page.

They are all calling up http://www.revkites.com/contact-us when I think they should be pointing to http://www.revkites....evolution-kites

Cheers
Stephen

I think Mike has summed up most of my thoughts.
On one of the pages, which I don't recall, the return to home was not functioning last night. Also the Historical REV is missing. Do you need photos?
