I've never bought a kite from Corey (owner of WindPowerSports), but he's been in the retail kite business for something like 30 years (or more) and I've called him friend for the last 18 of those... When I last spoke with him, he said he was working his way through a back log of orders and is seeking someone to come work in the shop with him in Las Vegas.
Sounds like a good reference to me. -- I guess if he could sell you a Revolution he really would be a great salesperson (ice to Eskimos? )
I guess I'll stop worrying but will order a kite from someone closer as well, just in case his backlog takes some time to get through. I hope he contacts me before shipping as my order will have changed by then.
