down this path lies bankruptcy and marital disharmony

not if you can drag the misses along & in (before you jump yourself)


yeah, i've tried to get her into kite flying a few times with no luck yet, but maybe Rev's might be different? I'm only joking really, she's really good at letting me indulge my OCKAD (obsessive compulsive Kite Acquisition Disorder) :lol:

Good to know about mixing and matching different Revs for team flying too, I know at least one of the guys coming to the club fly on Sunday has a vented rev of some description so i'll have to remind him to bring it :)

I've only flown my Rev about a dozen time but I've flown quadline power kites for years so I might be able to do some basic moves with him

Thanks for the hints on line stretch too, i'll keep an eye on it and will find the thread on putting leaders on my handles :)

In Topic: Foot work when flying Rev's

Thank you everyone for your detailed answers, this forum is really amazing :)

Interesting videos, I hadn't realized how much people move in the teams, I'd just seen it from the kites in the air mostly and assumed they couldn't move much.

To be honest with my duallies I love the "dance", trying to balance the ups and downs of the wind with my whole body moving, it feels like i'm part of the kite and hooked into the sky so I'm glad it works with the Rev's too :)

Thanks for the welcome and the high quality answers Bob and Rev Flyer, I appreciate it :)

Team flying is definitely in the back of my mind at some point, there are three or four of us in the Taskite flyers club who all have Revs now so it would be a lot of fun I reckon. Since our revs range from mid vent to full vent to standards, with some b series and some SLE's, I reckon it would be hilarious trying to coordinate them all and with the right wind lol.

But if we enjoy we may even get into buying a standard kit...oh oh...down this path lies bankruptcy and marital disharmony :lol:
