Can anyone identify the pilot?

(http://www.revkites.com/forum/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=4726)

Reliable word has it that he's spending as much time on that kite as he is on his duals these days.  ;D

He sent me this pic a couple months ago, really made my day.

Too cool.

Hmm ... one of those French guys no doubt.   ;)

Goes to show you that even the best dual line pilots can be lured over to the dark side ... oh, mon dieu!

Looks like Richard deBray, but it can't be since he is holding a Rev  ???

*ding ding*

Prize goes to Bill!

Steve had it too, but he was a good sport, being our forum padre here. ;)

They're working on Rev team stuff too, not gone "live" yet, but it's in the works.

Richard is arguably the top dual line pilot in the world, pound for pound... They're still his primary focus, but with our activities and discussions amongst the Red Bull team members, nearly all the pilots have begun to balance their skill set between dual and quad (except for Mathieu).

I'm not implying a dark side eclipse here, just half way. ;)

Hrm, might take my Sea Devil, Jump and Shiva out for a spin today!

There actually was one on the old forum recently I don't know if it sold though.

What is the world coming to  :'(

While the initial shock of the image is a good one, it's not that surprising. 

If I ever get to the level of Richard on my dual-line kites, I might conceivably be in the market for four lines, too.  (In other words, not in this lifetime.)

@ rc_dude - I'm probably going to check with Richard to see if he has an extra one I can buy, all "debrayed" to the hilt... Thanks though. ;)

imo, the coolest thing about revs is how it's so easy to have an informal group fly
it's a real nice change from flying all by yourself with a dual liner
