Really nice comments guys, I know i'm normally over on the other forum, but this great, hope you all got home safely, sounds like you all did.....personally i had a fantastic time even though i was on my "GAP" year last year...nice to be back in the fold...................on a really personal note, moi flying with the Decs...thanks Felix....Looking forward to bris/port....
Hope everybody came home having learnt a little bit more.....
Also i think a very large thanks should go to BOB, who did a lot of the backstage stuff.....un-sung hero!!
Hope we can do it all again soon, in warmer conditions.....Just had a thought, how about a Revolution weekend in Spain.....Bob, over to you!!!!
As John has mentioned, keeping the kite still and holding as you move up the ladder....another way which i have worked on is...not stopping as you go through the ladder, adds another dimension and skill level (getting the ladder straight) to the flier also the reverse ladder would be next on the list..........I'd like to see Mr Hoath having a go at this next weekend in Berck........i will just have to teach him..... if he can't do it.
Yes Mike, pivoting on a wingtip. I have just placed another order for vented 1.5 this time, together with the advanced training DVD. Unfortunately I fly on my own and have no help, so have to figure out by myself with the help from the REV forum and the training videos, both which have been very helpful to date.
When you move the ladder up, just walk a small step forward when the kite's leading edge is going upwards, and when you are doing ladder down, just do the same step, but walk (step) backward's.
