    Hi from San Antonio!

    Thanks for the advise guys! I've been busy but managed to get out another 2 or 3 times... Each time I'm slightly better but I'm still not able to successfully maintain control... Would using shorter lines help at all? As of right now I'm using 120' lines...

    Well, my first experience was an extremely humbling one! The kite arrived early this afternoon around 1pm... I took it out for about an hour & 1/2. I managed to keep the kite up in the air a few times, however it was anything but graceful. The difference between the controls are night & day compared to my other kites with a bar setup. I also suffered my first minor injury when I was preparing to end the session for the day... getting a mild rope burn on my wrist from the kite flipping on me unexpectedly when I was attempting to detach the lines from the bridle... Ouch! I didn't notice the injury until 10 minutes later when I was in the car and it started to sting... split the skin a little too. Looks like I have lots to learn! It's certainly not as easy as some of the videos online make it look... but I love a challenge.

    Ugh, it hasn't arrived yet. Why, oh why did I pick UPS Ground shipping? LoL

    Hi from San Antonio!

    Hah! This is cheap compared to the big kites! I think I spent $1200 on my 12 meter with the bar & lines... That's not counting all the $ spent on the rest of the gear... Phew! That one adds up quick. Thanks for the welcome!

    Hi from San Antonio!

    Hello all! Over the last 3/4ths of the year ive been playing a lot with the larger kites for kiteboarding, and it has taught me to respect the wind but also sparked a love for it as well. Being in San Antonio, I'm a couple hours drive away from the water so the majority of my kite time has been toying with a 3.5 m FOIL traction kite. I have a blast and a great workout from it, but I'm limited in the movements I can do with it. This hindrance is what stumbled me upon the Rev kites. I'm jumping in with the following setup: Revolution Barresi Signature Series Select Model: Standard Lineset: 90 lb. X 120 ft. & 90 lb. X 50 ft. Race Frame Upgrade No Snag Handle Upgrade How much fun am I about to start having?
