1.5 SLE for sale

08 October 2009 - 04:41 PM

I've flown this kite less than 15 times and purchased it in early august. It has a slight crack at the tip of LE about 1/8 long, this happened during my first flight. I'm selling the kite/handles/lines because I want something that scares me a little bit when I fly it. Anyways I don't know how much these kites depreciate so throw me an offer if you're interested through PM.

if you want to see pics of it just check out my flickr: http://www.flickr.co...tos/john_scott/

3rd time's a charm

1st: just got kite and tried flying, there was no wind, lines tangled
2nd: traveled to florida, no wind at the beach lol, lines tangled
3rd: went to some St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and winds were 15 -20 mph, and I finally flew the damn kite, I tried showing off by making the kite touch the water and a wave took the kite under, somehow I was able to launch it back out of the water so that was the high point of the day haha, also I checked my line lengths for the first time and one was more than 3-4 inches longer than the rest so I guess thats why it was a challenge to have any precision, thanks Watty, John, and Kent for tips last week

Any people fly around there, I'm traveling there around August 7th, btw I don't have a Rev yet so I would like to let you down in advance, but I would like to watch someone fly in person

I've been lurking for 4 days

I finally gave in and registered and I've become somewhat obsessed with a kite that I've never flown. I've only flown 2 line kites and I was doing research to find a larger one with more pull like the goliath or mirage xl. During my searching for the largest 2 line stunt I found the Rev kite and came here. I definitely will be getting a rev before a 2 liner now, it looks like a challenge. I'm overwhelmed by all the information so it's hard to process what Rev to get.

I live in Beaumont Tx and there is hardly any wind but I'm about 40 minutes from the gulf. So what kite would you recommend for the beach that has winds 10-20mph?
Also are there any people in the area?
