A Washington State flyer named Roger Maddy is/was well known for making his 12 line puppet kites, but before he started making his own kites, he used to fly 3 Rev 1's at the same time. He made special "X" shaped handles and flew one kite from each hand, and made and used a special chest harness to control the 3rd Rev.

David Brittain and I saw Roger do this performance at WSIKF in Long Beach, WA in 1992, and our jaws dropped when we saw Roger doing his 3 Rev performance!

Does anyone have pics or video of Roger Maddy flyng the 3 revs at once? I think it would be cool if other's were able to see Roger's amazing feat!

I remember that routine... I'd love to get footage of it for the Kitelife archives!
