Not at all necessary. :matrix:

Cheers Sailor you are so cool :blue_smile:

Luckily I am in a good mood today having celebrated a different (30th year) anniversary. :blue_blush:
Lots to celebrate this year... so lets hope it can stay sweet!

:lol: That's a good one Jonesey.
What do you mean 30 ?, (if only), it should be "I'm 21 again".... ;)
It's not my birthday, (already had that) but thanks for the sentiment.

(It's actually our 20th 'anniversary' this year).

Ohhh you lads have heaps of fun.
We're hoping the weather stays conducive for some flying fun too this week.
Where you chaps heading (PM me).

Actually I would have said it should be "At least" :devil: :devil:

About $35 to ship a couple of Revs out Eteve. But then whoever gets it in the UK has to pay Tax, handling charge and import duty depending on the value.



Oh I see.. we have a freind that come here 4 times a year maybe we need to send some back with him!!

Ok you ready for some irony ? :-

Groz had to go to California for a boring business conference earlier this year and tried to buy a vented kite then.

After travelling down from San Fran. he found the kite shop had ceased trading *;(
It is still listed on the Revolution retailer webpage. :blue-confused:

I see to my dismay, you are still going on about it.


Bit harsh on Bob, its a public forum whaddya expect?
Couple of above posts show how hard it is for Kite traders here. (overseas buying)

Size or weight, within reason, should not be a hindrance to Rev flying, last year I watched a lad who probably is still to reach 90lbs putting Rob's Sedgwick about the sky. ;)

BTW John dont forget Chalkies at http://www.kiteworks.co.uk/index.shtml another supplier of Revs and parts in the UK

Boys are boys and have no fear or soft curves to damage, in high wind gusty conditions.
So I beg to differ, it has been a hindrance to me... and I am not scared to admit that.

You are still missing the point about lack of service/different level of service to me, compared to others.
I do not appreciate being called an idiot or a liar which has been the case here.

thank you.
