Ron Despojado Memorial

11 May 2015 - 02:32 PM

Dear Rev Family,

We wanted to get this message out to you.

Our dear brother Ron Despojado passed away on April 5.  The causes are still listed as natural.  We have no further information.

We will be having the Memorial Kite fly this Saturday at Mariners Point, Mission Bay. ( near Belmont Park, the site of the New Years Day fly.)  We will be there Saturday from 11:00 till 5 pm officially.  We will have a club meeting, a Rev hosted lunch, and a wonderful fly and gathering remembering Ron and all others who we miss dearly.  Please join us, or fly where you can.



Thank you all for your kind words and wonderful memories for my dear friend Ron.  I am truly heartbroken.   Lolly

Dear Rev Family,

We want to wish you a Happy New Year, and blessings for all.

January started with Kite, Toys And Innovation (KTAI) Convention in Orlando, Florida.  The new Rev Carbon Fiber Banner poles were introduced to the shops with great enthusiasm.  Thank you !!  I then went on to a great festival in treasure Island.  We had sunshine, and decent winds, and wonderful friends from up and down the east coast.  Welcome new Rev family members !


News since then....

David is going to beautiful Milwaukee for a Valentines Snow fly !!!  He will be there Amy & Connor, Ron Despojado, Chicago Fire, and many great people. Thank you Scott at Gift of Wings, Delevan county, and the Lakelawn Resort.

Ben's Farewell

16 December 2014 - 12:12 AM

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

New Masterpiece Art and Artist

23 September 2014 - 08:41 AM

Dear Rev Family,


We are very excited to welcome our new Masterpiece artist.  Kevin Bayless has graciously agreed to put his talent into a Rev sail.

We are thrilled to have him onboard.  His style is bold and exciting in flight.


We have received 2 skins and they are completed.  I have added the pictures here.


More skins are due to arrive at Rev today or tomorrow.  Kevin has posted a few preliminary pictures on Facebook also.  They are beautiful, and are getting comments from around the world.   3 are already spoken for.

There will be only 10 in his set.

Send your comments and orders !  They are selling fast.


Good winds,
