I spend most of my time flying revs in team.  Here is one of my favourite shots of my team.

A question for you all,  what is the best Rev picture you have seen?

Ohhh... That's HOT Stephen! ;)

I've always been partial to this one, shot by John Chilese:

If you are going to keep "dog staking" then you should get Lolly to make you a rev with their logo printed on the back and upside down.  We have been thinking about this for the team as a great deal of the time the kites are staked out on the ground leading edge down.  Nice picture though.

Nice pic Stephen!

Some of the coolest rev team pics I've ever seen, are one that the Decorators have posted on their website. Their pics are similar to the formation pic you posted.

John, are you a musician?  :wink:

Now that's a cool pic!

Was that taken from the top of time share/condo buildings, next to the Shilo Inn in Seaside, OR? If it is, my sister owns a time share in that building. My sister lives in Corvallis and my brother lives in McMinnville.

Ya, sure is, the trendwest building, from the 8th floor if I remember right.

Terribly rare to get a wind that allows you that close to a building, but, wow did I have a lot of fun that evening and I was delightfully surprised to see these pics today

Another shot

It also shows a picture perfect evening in Seaside. Those are the days us kiters live for! 8)

Thanks for sharing!

Indeed, utterly flawless conditions that evening, with the wind blowing to the south at about 8-10mph, straight down the beach so you could actually get to the building with no wash. The kite itself was a 1.5 with an SUL frame in it.

It was the first beach I ever flew on 12 years ago and it was great to go back there this spring!

I've had a few days like that in Seaside, Lincoln City, Rock-a-Way beach, Cannon Beach, and Long Beach. I got hooked in 1985 in Lincoln City. In Seaide it was always fun to play the rev up on the wall of the turn around. :D
