Family some of you may know that I have went to some of the best kite makers in the world and asked for their help.

What we have done is gotten some of the best to put together five sails and today I saw the first artist's five sails and wanted to tell you about it.

Ron Gibian's five kites are almost done and if you saw the one we had made for convention last year well to me this is just as pretty if not more so Ron you are a true artist and I thank you.

Family, if you looking for that special gift for you or someone you love I have that kite, as I said this is one of five only and I do expect them to go fast so try to contact us soon.

You need to know that the first of these kites should be in my hands in ten days then I will post photos but if you want you can reserve one now and lock in your kite ahead of time........

Rumor is that they're Rev 1.5s in custom applique designs by Ron Gibian... Very tasty indeed. ;)

If that's the one I saw at Berkeley that wasn't quite finished yet, I will kill for one, they soo hot, might as well just frame it and put on your wall that risk something happening to it while flying, any idea on how much these beauties will be going for?

it had better be made to fly and not just hang on the wall!

I have the kite Ron made for the AKA convention/nationals and as magnificient as it looks it's way tooooo heavy for anything except low teens, smooth wind (beach conditions).

I beat him and our hero Ben up pretty badly at Wildwood on this very topic, so I'm hoping my frantic pleas have been addressed.

The sail is definitely appliqued, no doubt about it... But it's not nearly as heavy as last year's AKA version. ;)

Sorry family about not getting here sooner but I got lost after Berkley :lol:  Things went well and wanted to thank all the Rev fliers that were there and tell them well done.As for the customs they fly well and this is a fact I flew one today, they are not much heavier than a standard and yes family they are a sight to behold these are true works of art they are not cheap $450.00 but to see this in the sky is a show stopper. Pictures will be on the sight as soon as John gets them posted. On a personal note John the eyes have it ha, ha, ha, bro you are in for a shock...........Ben :twisted:
