I tried using some polyethylene tape that I had lieing around and gave it a try. The tape doesn't have too much adhesive on it so I figure that after flying it on the beach it will probably pick up some sand. Gives me some piece of mind that the b series has some wear and tear protection! I put the tape only on the back of the kite and carefully unrolled a piece long enough for the length of the area then lightly adjusted the tape until I got the angle that I wanted before pressing firmly with my thumb along the tape.

you guys are filled with awesome tips. Thanks again for chiming in!. I believe I have all of the tweaking ideas out of my head so now I just have to master the flying. The 2-wrap + weights recommendation was very clear to understand. I'll take a picture of my rev and upload it to my avatar sometime this week and hopefully get some flying in to boot.

question 3, how does one measure, 100' tape measure should get you to 85',, if you don't have a tape measure walk it off, a pace is 3' 29 paces will get you close enough to 85'

question 4, wrinkles, if they are wrinkles hose the kite off and let it dry, if it's creases, those are probably there forever. if the kite goes back in the sleeve every time treat it like wrapping your most special christmas gift to someone.

looks like all the other questions was answered.


liking this forum already!

found the thread. Anyone have pictures of which area specifically suffers the wear and tear?

You should read the post under modifications,"Stick on wear strips" before going with tedlar on your sail,I just bought some Insignia tape, works great and if your flying in the sand, you might try it instead :)

I'll go search for that thread. Thanks for that.

yes I'm in los angeles however I tend to stay in the valley area as the beach is about a 45 minute drive from me. Thanks for the help
