I am starting to write next years routines and thougth I would pose you all a question.

What Rev team move does it for you and why?

What moves would you like to see?

What move would you create if you had the chance?

If I like the move and it is innovative I will put it into the routines with the designers name as the new name for the move. mmmm now what would the "Bazzer" look like? :kid_smartass:

Can open, worms everywhere :o

woah, there are so many questions buzzin' around in my mind...

But for now, K.I.S.S. - most importantly:
what are *your* favourite moves ?
How many in your team, and what style of music to use ?

I like so many including:
Iris, Spiderweb, solaris

Good shapes: "Potatoe" and spokes.

Fun REV stacking - airbourne or ground also :lips:

and loads of others which I don't know the official names, eg starburst and the zig-zag (The Crazy Drivers weaved like a zig-zag this year).
Love the start move-weave the IQuad team do. etc etc

Surprise us :D

The Bazzer, would be a very underated move that builds well, then explodes into an amazing finale, only problem is the distance covered during the manouvre (starts in the UK ends in USA!).

I like moves that start as something you know then change, and give you something new and unexpected, they don't need to be technically difficult. I do that stuff for me, keep it to someting the crowds understand.

That is something that has surprised me, itís often the simple stuff that the uninitiated are most impressed by. Itís not usually very long before any newbie tries a Dive-stop. True they are usually more Dive-wobble than Dive-stop at that stage but still very satisfying and very impressive to the uninitiated.

Plenty of scope here, I like all of them and if you could fly in tight formation like these fellows for a move or two and at speed it sure would give folk something to see.

Here's what Stephen Hoath and I have said on Kitelife :sign_kitelife: :

Watty:Okay, how about this. There are two vertical lines. The left line is higher in elevation, facing down. The right line is lower facing up. both lines go forward until just after they meet. Still facing the same directions, the slide and pass through, then continue moving forward. They stop, do a 360, then repeat.


Steve:
I like that, I don't remember a specific move like that but I am sure John or Simon will correct me. Something we always try and achieve is to avoid the obvious move and revers idea, so in the "Watty" how would you get the kites back out again without simply flying the figure in reverse?

Mind you, a Revers Watty sounds like a good move :kid_devlish:


Watty:
You could bring both lines to the center, the left line faces right, and the right line faces left, pass through, and go out to the sides.


I'm too lazy to retype everything, so...... yeah. :blue-grin:

At WSIKF this year Lynn and I were flying with iQuad, I think there were ten of us. We had been flying for a few minutes when John had us all fly up to the line and face right. We were just holding that position, waiting for a call from John, when we saw him threading from the right, through our lines one kite at a time. When he got to the left side, he started back through, but turned a 180 between each kite on his trip back to the right. Inverted through kite #10, right side up through kite #9, inverted through kite #8 etc. THAT was a real crowd pleaser.

This would look good with three or more kites.

Good questions!

My personal faves are large 360 degree pinwheels. LOVE'EM!

after such an array of festivals this year, the two that always send crowds into applause are the tried and true bursts, and The Fountain

Well with about 8 kites, the ball is always a favorite, as you say. Nothing like hearing the whole crowd ahhhh as you burst!!

I am also a real fan of the blender style moves.

Stephen, I also love the one we did a while back as a pinwheel, but with one kite starting out to the right and one to the left and passing through as the pinwheel hits vertical. If you had a large enough team, I guess you could do this with more than one kite passing through!!

Just a few thoughts.

Mark.

I spent some time in and amongst the crowds at Mots... especially on Sunday..

Without question, the fast bursts are absolutely the biggest crowd pleaser... it looks like a big fireworks burst... lots of oohhs! and aahhhs and I'd guess it make some people feel religious as many of them start a sentence with Holy ....

I love the flanking moves..

The intricate stuff is a personal pleaser but only because I know how difficult the moves are... I don't know if most people watching really even know that there are 4 lines on each kite... and how difficult it is to thread the needle... to them, it may just look like one kite moving in front of the others...lol

I'd say big moves like ball bursts, formations and kites crossing each other from one side to the other are the big crowd pleaser's...

We have been flying a move recently we call the MF (I guess that could stand for most fiendish!) Basicaly you are flying a 180 opposite pinwheel - ie odd kites clockwise, even kites ANTI clockwise- but at the same time the kites are performing a pairs benefit.

OK sounds easy.... You just try sticking it and see what happens!

:kid_devlish:

John, Dave et al I would love to know how you get on with that one, but....shhh..... don't tell anyone it's a secret.

I am starting to write next years routines.....


Hello Stephen,

So have you finished designing your new routine yet ?

Have you already flown it this year ?

Or when are we likely to see it ?

I really enjoyed watching team FLIC when they did those cross over X shapes :)
I'm not sure what they are called, when one person goes through the other flier's lines at an angle (?)

The new routine is written and is now in the testing phase. We are making sure that the stuff on paper actually works in the sky, this can take quite a while as we also have to deal with line wraps and individual wraps. The next stage is to teach it to some more members of the team. I don't imagine that it is going to be flown publicaly much before Portsmouth.

Watch this space....

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

The Flying Squad whinge card was started last year to try and encourage our team to reduce the level of complaining that goes on sometimes (nothing serious just gentle stuff like, mine lines are always twisted, the wind is too strong, I don't do rain!)

When the current holder of the Whinge Card hears another member of the team being a little less than positive they can pass the card onto that person.

The only trouble is, being English, we like to moan and so what actualy happens is that when someone gets the Whinge Card they then purge all the things that are annoying them. Doh..

This now needs to be extended to all other Rev fliers we meet and so be warned, next time you fly near us and you complain out load, you may get the Whinge Card. Lets see how far it travels. :kid_smartass:

I do hate people moaning. Why don't they just stop already? On, and on complaining about the tiniest little thing.......

Oh! :blink: :blushing:

Yes you must be right - we english must love a good moan
