Re: New kite carrier

Yup nice sedate low key four door sedan. If it helps I put my snow tires on the car and they are mounted to my not so flashy gold BBS wheels from my other Sti.

New kite carrier

I ordered a new kite hauler a few months ago. It finally arrived a couple days ago. I am rather excited. I have a 1000 mile break in before I can start really spinning the torbo. The drive to Clear Lake will help.

Re: My First Outdoor, Short Line, Rev Fly

Well done! I always set up a kite on 40 foot lines when I am flying with the team. Catches and throws are fun, plus it is easier to interact with the crowds on short lines.

Re: Winter Kite Flying near Champaign Illinois.

When I fist started with Revs I would go out in the cold and fly. It seems the more time goes by the more Fair weather flier I become. But somehow I let people talk me into driving half a day to fly kites in the snow on a frozen lake in Iowa every winter. Come spring I would be happy to meet up and ...

Re: Custom Handle Information

That too.
I forgot to say welcome to the club Robbie! I was thinking, I have a bunch of handles laying around. If you need a set until I can make you exactly what you want, I would be more than happy to send you a set. If you would like me to PM your address. Have a good night

Re: Custom Handle Information

I finally made it to my computer. Not an easy thing lately. Sorry for taking so long. I am still making handles, but I am currently on hold. I have a couple other projects I am been devoting my time to and I don't want to take any orders until I have time to actually do them. I have a couple people ...

Re: My first kite forum...

Welcome! I would also be willing to let you fly one of my Revs, or any of my kites really. If you can make the retreat it is a great event. Probably my favorite of the year. It is slowly turning into a small unofficial festival.

Re: Higher Wind Rev Advice Wanted

Somehow I missed this earlier! Thanks for the nice words about my handles! Although I would say picky, not perfectionist. Otherwise I would never sell a set because they are never just right.

Re: Wind Apps

I really like Windalert as long as you link to a local Staton that isn't in a shool yard or something. When you are linked to a airport or Lighthouse. Somewhere with low turbulence it seems very accurate and the predictions are usually spot on.

Re: New York Minute - New Revolution Kite for Sale

I think Mike is right. The skyline view and a play on words. It started as an internal nickname and stuck if I understand things right.

I am with Big Mike, we have kites scattered all over. Only our Rev bags are organized. Otherwise you are likely to find them about anywhere.

Shari's forum name is very cryptic. It is Shari. So you will know who it is if she chimes in.
