Cool -- Rev looks great, field looks great. Let the fun begin. As a famous sea captain once said, " ... I have not yet begun to smile." Or something like that. Much more fun, coming to your neighborhood soon!
I know how much you want to rock and roll, but practice very basic moves first, each time you fly. You must have a good foundation on which to build every thing else you can do with a Quad-Line kite. Saving the fun stuff until you've practiced will give you more control and even more fun. Fly straight up, keeping the kite balanced, and then back it down to a landing. Do this at least ten times. Next, go up and turn towards the ground, fly towards the ground as slowly as you can without wobbling too much. Do this at least ten times. Launch and practice turns by flying figure-eights. Do at least ten. Practice holding your kite motionless in all positions, ten reps, woven in between the other things you are practicing.
When you've done 100 of each you will have pretty good control of your kite, and will have a decent inverted hover. That is accomplished by turning towards the ground at the top, (item two in the paragraph above), and flying towards the ground as slowly as you can, trying for slower each time. Trust me, do this 100+ times and you will have an inverted hover.
Practice these basics each time you fly, several times if wind and time allow, and you'll be flying like a Pro in no time. DO NOT PRACTICE for more than 30 minutes without taking a break and goofing around -- don't overthink what you are doing, try to feel what the kite and wind want to do. You can't control the wind, but you CAN adjust the sails.
Most of all, smile, have fun and don't forget to breathe. Remember, we have cookies.
