Any Rev fliers in the Galveston, Houston area.

12 June 2012 - 05:52 PM

Just got my 1st Rev (B series Standard). I was wondering if there were any Rev fliers in my neck of the woods that would like to get together and show me a few things. I'm off 45 south and Scarsdale exit.
Thanks Brian.Posted Image



What's the best Rev for me

27 May 2012 - 09:42 PM

Founds some great info on kites in this forum but was hoping if I explained a little about me someone could help me choose the right kite for me. I live near Galveston Island, Tx, I have never flown a quad but have experience with a dual and I'm currently learning kitesurfing and land board. When I went to buy my first trick kite (dual) I was wanting something big and was looking to spend 300.00 but my local kite shop recommended that I start off with something smaller because I never flown before so I got the Salsa II and loved it and only spent 80.00. Bad thing is, after 10 hours of flying time I was wanting more. So I guess what I'm asking is, I don't want to buy a Rev and in a month, start wishing I have gotten something better. It look like you can't buy a bad Rev and in long term I might end up with a few of them. I just want to make sure I start off with a good one that will keep me entertained for awhile and let me do everything nice and smooth or quick and smooth and become the Worlds Greatest Rev flyer.JK> My local kite shop does not sale quad kites. So if you could recommend a shop would be great to.
