Welcome to the forum and welcome to the Darkside.
First you don't say where you live, because, I wouldn't mind betting that it there is another Rev flyer within 50 miles of you, they will be inviting you to come a fly with them, we are a friendly, helpful bunch and we are very gregarious. Though somewhat dated the Rev instruction DVD is extremely informative but it is no match for a bit of face to face tuition, if you get such an invite be sure to take it up you will learn so much in a few hours spent with someone with a little experience, I was very lucky when I started out because I share a home field wit some of the UK's best, a little help makes a big difference.
You say you first saw Revs at the Portsmouth festival, are you local or were you there on holiday because I know there is a small group of very experienced fliers just along the coast at Southampton.
Second, practice but above all ENJOY.
