HI John....

VERY cool!

Looks like a great time.

Great vantage point; seeing all three teams "stacked" doing the moves together.

Keep on keep'n on!

xoxo

btw, the stick Revs Rock!! ;)

Looks like you had a blast. These boot camps are so fun. Back in the mid-late 90's we did one of these in Weston-Super-Mare, UK. It was precisely the same concept, but for dual liners. We provided a large number of Northshore Radicals, Jeanette wrote a ballet for all to learn and we spent a fun weekend with myself, Jeanette, Carl Robertshaw, etc, teaching team flying and choreography.

So great to now see the same concept applied to Rev flying. Anything that shares the joy of team flying has to be a plus!!

Nice one John.

That is way cool. Great to see the "little stick revs" for rehearsing.
Great filming too. Makes me want to get to the nearest beach ASAP.

Really felt for the person on the SLK during the first group flight on the far right of picture.

Great work all involved.

This was a HUGE highlight in my life. I learned so much, and I feel that I have brought my skills up a few notches. At one time on Sunday, we were waiting on a team mate and did a bit of a 6 person mega-fly with a couple other team members. We did benefits, compound benefits, and a fountain with no prior planning. I felt much more comfortable on the line, and more in control of the kite. If another team boot camp was announced I would not be able to sign up fast enough!

Ben~ You're more than welcome to jump on our team at WSIKF! We'd love to have you!

We had such a wonderful time, I can't even begin to express it. Everyone came up to speed really quickly and we had some great times on the line. Loved it. We definitely need to do it again. Soon!
