#95799 Ben's Farewell

Posted by John Barresi on 16 December 2014 - 12:35 AM



What can be said that hasn't been said already?


Ben is like the perfect balance of sweet and salty, tough dawg with a nougat center, all rolled in kite goodness.

#94234 Video Tutorials for the Rev!

Posted by John Barresi on 08 January 2014 - 12:53 AM

Hi all,
If you're not already familiar with the Rev video tutorials over on KiteLife, I'd like to invite you to check them out...



Having just added 10 more, there are now a total of 28 outdoor tutorials and 9 indoor, with many more on the to do list.


Roughly half are free to view on YouTube, and all 28 are available (HD and mobile formats) with a KiteLife subscription.


Thanks so much - good winds to all!

#93345 Revolution 25th Anniversary - 100 strong at WSIKF! (Aug 19-24, 2013)

Posted by John Barresi on 06 August 2013 - 07:48 AM

We have field B all week, directly south of the main demo field and probably a whopping 500-600 feet from the porta potties. ;)


I've been speaking with Kay from the World Kite Museum to make sure our schedules don't conflict again... Please BE ADVISED - the Red, White, & Blue Mass Ascension is scheduled from 10:00AM to 12:00 PM on Thursday.

To be exquisitely clear, field B is off limits for us until noon on Thursday - Mass Ascension has the right of way until then. ;)

Thanks for your help and cooperation!

Tutorials help...


But the best thing is finding others to have fun and exchange skills with in person. ;)

#93095 What's your favorite time to fly?

Posted by John Barresi on 20 June 2013 - 12:36 PM

Seriously, I've had so many "best" moments flying at all times of the day, in different places...


They're all my favorite.


Have kite and energy, will fly. :)

#93093 Crossed over to the dark side.

Posted by John Barresi on 20 June 2013 - 12:23 PM

Welcome to the dark side Konfuzion. smile.png


Don't forget the other kites, I like to keep one toe in pretty much everything...


The more you fly, the more you'll know. smile.png


Full list of KL Rev tutorials...




Reading your posts above, I'm guessing these subscriber tutorials might really clarify some things...

Apologies, more than half our tutorials are free on YouTube but a few (like those above) are only available to KiteLife subscribers.


One way or the other, Rev fliers make up an awesome community and you'll keep finding more and more fun things to do with your new kites. smile.png


Cheers and good winds!
