#87067 Kitty, Kitty,Kitty, Hawkkkkkk

Posted by beach on 20 March 2012 - 04:51 PM

Well as I pack up to come home for 4 days I have something to share..... :blue-cool: Today I got the chance to teach all
the managers of "Kitty Hawk Kites" to fly out at the kite boarding school and I have to admit it went really well
and out of 24 managers/staff I'd say over half really got it and had fun.... I'll tell you for me when I see the light
go on and that smile that comes to there face I remember why I do this, I got to share the passion and bring in
new Family members...... :blue-cool: Sure it's a job but it's about way more than that, see we now have some new kite
fliers and hopefully some new Family members, I love what I do...... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

#86919 Sneak preview

Posted by beach on 13 March 2012 - 12:55 PM

The bling is only a part of the Race SPL rods where they really shine is in a midvent in very bumpy wind
and in the standard sail in very light wind.... :kid_devlish: Because of the material used and the lay up what you
have is a very light stick with huge amounts of strength and a very fast reflex and the speed of the reflex
is what make all of the Race series so special... The only draw back is how very hard it is to just make these
rods but thats what we do..... The biggest thing is giving you the best product possible with the very best raw
materials cause we here care and we here fly what we make. When you live and breath kites it's important
to make only the very best and to keep on trying new things, so enjoy and give it a whirl when you can.... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:


#86897 Kite Party Here I Come

Posted by beach on 12 March 2012 - 02:38 PM

What a great weekend even with some funky winds at times but never to worry this is "Kite Party" with a huge P,
so it really does'nt matter cause Dave S the owner of Kite Connection puts on a great non festival.... :kid_devlish: Each year
draws new and old faces to just get together and have fun and fun is sure what this is all about, if there's one place
that all kite fliers should go at least once "Kite Party" in Huntington Beach Ca. is that spot...... :blue-cool: What always gets me
there are no rules at "KP" and the answer for the day is just enjoy and fly and hang out with your friends...... As always
team iQuad rocked the house and in all honesty everyone was pretty much on there A game, plus as always "Bens
Island" was rockin and fun was had by all the visitors to the island..... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

#86295 South Padre and it's going to be good....

Posted by beach on 03 February 2012 - 08:42 PM

The first day of S.P.I. was a hoot and the Rev clinic was really good and iQuad really stepped
up there teaching and I'd have to say people really learned..... :blue-cool: From there it was indoors
and once again the boys stepped it up and brought there A-game then throw into the mix
Lisa W. and Chris S. (okay so I can't spell) but lets just say today was a great day and
tomorrow promises to be the same....... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:


PS 2 Bill and Susie of B & S kites really know how to make people feel at home, thanks guys.....

#86267 South Padre and it's going to be good....

Posted by beach on 31 January 2012 - 10:52 AM

You know I ended up stuck last year cause I could'nt get in to South Padre last year so I missed it :kid_cussing:,
this is a place where the people are always so good to me and it's been the kick off for the coming
year for me so when I missed it I was really thrown off all year..... :kid_brooding: So Im really kind off excited
to be going down, then when you add in the fact I get some me and iQuad time it's all good.... The
crowds are always good, the best group of fliers around, and great kites stores all put together makes
for a great trip and who knows I may even get to fly a kite or two...... So if your not coming don't
worry I'll have extra fun just for you..... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

#85374 On Vacation

Posted by beach on 04 December 2011 - 11:48 PM

Well here's one for you Family I'm on vacation in one of the most beautiful places on earth and I'm really missing all of you....... I mean I've been all over the world and every where one of you were there to share the sky with me and the moment, here it's just been me and who ever I teach how to fly but it's making for a really lonely trip..... So on my next vacation I'm taking one of you with me, funny I needed a vaction but I think what I really needed was to be with my Family..... Funny spent thousands to figure out I was just missing my friends, my Family...... Ben

#83576 Headed To Play With Our English Friends, UK here I come...

Posted by beach on 05 September 2011 - 07:08 AM

Well as I wind down here in London to get ready to come home I must admit I'm really very sad I
just feel as if I'm leaving somewhere where many of my friends live...... I know I'll be back but still
I like the Family here and it's seems as if they in turn like me....... :confused!: I'd really like to thank everyone
for helping to make this a very good trip and putting up with me..... The one person I'd really like to
thank is Felix of the Decs cause he was just top notch as always and as we all know I can be a bit much,
but he was a trooper and went well beyond the normal.... I've had the chance to travel the world with
Revolution kites and and to spread the message of " Family " cause folks thats really what we are a Family who no matter what love this sport and give of ourselves each time we go out there, so with
that said lets all spend a minute to just be thankful of each other and the four strings that keep us
together..... Ben (your brother) :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:


























#83485 Portsmouth 2011

Posted by beach on 31 August 2011 - 11:45 AM

At last, I've finally registered on the forum after being around for a couple of years and here's my first post:

Having met everyone I just wanted to add my appreciation for a great weekend.

I had plenty of (mostly successful) flying in the Rev arena and it was great having the opportunity to fly with all of you as well as people calling in a multitude of languages: French, Spanish even English at times (although I'm not sure how far north you have to go until English turns into another language :matrix: )
The red face I have got is DEFINITELY from the sunny weather and not the momentary loss of concentration before the start of Saturday's Megateam Fly Posted Image .

I have also now seen how Sunday's 42 kite display looked to the rest of the world having been able to view Jonesey's great video (I tried not to be distracted this time, keeping my eye on the correct Red and Black kite,
especially when Steven H told everyone to look at the "boxed 20" "Kodak" moment in front of us. I maintained this "call" was for the to the crowd behind rather than flyers Posted Image ).

So, only another year till the next Portsmouth event but there is still this weekend to come and I hope to see some of you at Bristol in Ashton Court..

Thanks to All,

.... Deryk


Thank you for joining and thanks for just being there my friend.... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

Posted by beach on 29 August 2011 - 09:12 AM

Well just got in to London for a bit of street flying and visiting and taking in the sights.... :blue-cool: Portsmouth was good and the weather was England but not to worry just hang out and it will change.... :kid_devlish: What has'nt
changed is the people who I hold near and dear to my heart and rather than be to nice I'll just say " thank


you one and all for a great time"..... :blue-love: So I'm going to get some sleep but I'll be back soon with some
more of " Wheres Ben, he's lost in England..... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:


#83131 Headed To WSIKF with a full bag and a bad attitude....

Posted by beach on 21 August 2011 - 10:31 PM

Well it's been a great week up here and all the fliers did a great job, each day the sky was greater than the day before and the single line guys really gave all
of us a great back drop to fly in for sure..... :blue-cool: Then you add the Rev Riders, Island Quad, and iQuad it was almost surreal the flying I watched, then when it
all went indoors it just kept getting better...... I can say for sure that the Rev lesson field brought some new blood to the sport cause people were lining up
all week after they got to see everyone showing there stuff, so thank you one and all and my hats off to you all cause the show was great..... :blue-cool: So I'm
waiting in town for a day and I'll be headed out tomorrow cause I got a flight out on Thursday for the UK cause it's time to go see some old friends
across the pond..... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool: (PS Alden your my hero you kept me laughing all week)
