Kite flying is a beautiful hobby but a very difficult place to make a living. With that said, we're sad to report that Ben will be spending more of his time pursuing higher paying opportunities. He is a cherished member of Revolution Kites and our kiting community. We look forward to many years of community support and team building as his time permits....
Ben will be especially missed at Revolution for his ability to strengthen the community by bringing kite fliers together within the Rev family, and the kiting community as a whole.
Whether supporting team iQuad, answering questions on the Rev forum, spreading his passion of flying at International events, or just hanging out with his many kiting friends, you can always count on Ben to bring some excitement to the party.
It's rare to find people willing to give years of their lives (and personal expertise) even to something as beautiful as kites, but when you find these special people, it's important to honor and support them as they have generously given their time and energy to strengthen our community. Ben is such a person.
We'd like to thank the community for their support over the years. It may sound like a cliché, but it's true. We can't do it without you. Your support in turn allows us to support the community, its teams, events and fliers. When you buy a Revolution kite, you're buying an experience which includes the whole kiting community: the stores offering knowledgeable product support, the manufacturers that develop and bring you new and unique products, and the teams that show us what is possible.
Thanks again, and we're looking forward to seeing you on the flying field in 2015.
Joe, David, Lolly
