Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

If by chance, you just happened to leave your Revolution kite, out in front of the "Kitty Hawk Kites" store, in Nags Head, NC, right across the highway from Jockey's Ridge, please contact me. I can put you on the trail, back to your kite. I'm sure that whoever left this Rev, wants it back, but you'll have to be able to describe it, perfectly, before I'll give you the information. If you can come up with the details, PM me (reef runner), over on the Revolution forum, or on the Kitelife forum, and I will put you in contact with the person, that can get your Rev, back in your hands...............

You'll need to know the following:

1. When and where was it left ?
2. What is the model of your kite (B-series, Supersonic, Rev I, Zen, etc) ?
3. What is the Color of the kite ?
4. Describe, "How you wound up your lines" ?
5. What kind of handles did you have with the kite ?
6. What color was the bag (sleeve) ?
7. What kind of bag was it packed in (straight sleeve, sleeve with handle, sleeve with pockets, drawstring bag, etc) ?

I hate to be so rigid about this, but I want to make sure that the kite gets back to it's proper owner, and not someone just claiming that it was theirs. Heck, I could have done that..........All it will cost you is the postage, to mail your Rev home, and it's yours again.

And BTW, I don't have your REV...................

Let me know...............Reef Runner

Good luck finding the owner. I hope they have a good memory.

If they get 6 out of 7, you might cut them a little slack.  Smiley

Okay I'll start  Cheesy

1....how about...out in front of the "Kitty Hawk Kites" store, in Nags Head, NC, right across the highway from Jockey's Ridge.  Some time in the past!
2. Revolution...er no, not a B-Series, Supersonic, Rev I or Zen... I think it was the Etc.?
3. Well, the printing was black ... on the white panel.
4. I started at the kite and went towards the handles
5. quad handles - one for each hand
6. purple... or grey ... or
7. straight, with a handle, pockets and a drawstring

Seriously, here's hoping the owner reads some of the forums.  Thanks for taking the effort to try and track them down.

How do you "forget" a Rev?? So you're hot and sweaty from flying on the dunes. You go up and get some ice cream at the ice cream store and maybe browse around KHK for a bit. The whole time your $200+ kite is all by its lonesome waiting for someone to see it and make off with it. What were you thinking??? Serves him right. Someone who loves and cares for their kites would never leave them unattended. Would you leave your child unattended? I never did! (My kites or my kids!)

Thou shalt not equate a kite with a child. They are not the same thing. At all.

Nahh, they're not the same thing but I sure wouldn't leave them unattended! I've seen parents leave kids in their car seats when they went into a store. Shameful!

Well, It's been nearly 3 weeks, and no takers yet.  Definately a lot of viewers here, at Kitelife, and on the Rev forum.  Also, the AKA has jumped in, and word has been sent out to all members, in every region. Obviously Brett is correct, the owner must never look around, online.  If only they knew, how many people are aware, and ready to help,  reunited them with their beloved Rev.  If only they would just look, or ask someone.  Nearly the entire kiting world is now aware.

Has anyone posted any signs around the area where the kite was found? Since this person obviously isn't online maybe going "old school" might work?

Maybe making up a flyer saying "KITE FOUND" and see what happens. Either that or fly the thing where it was found and when someone approaches you claiming it's theirs.....problem solved Grin Cheesy

I know Nick has talked to the Kite shop.  Maybe next time he is up there he could have them do that if they haven't already.  Some times I tend to over think things  Embarrassed

Hey Guys and Gals,
I'm afraid this thing is turning into a lost cause !
We've surely tried, but it's just not happening............
I'm sure that everyone on the forum is getting really tired of seeing this thread, but my intentions were good.
I'll be back down at Kitty Hawk Kites & Jockey's Ridge, in just a few days, so I'll check with them, to see if they have heard anything. If no one has claimed the "Lost Rev" by then, I'm going to call this a done deal.................
The kite will then enter into another life. It will be used as a "trainer" and a "demo" kite, at Kitty Hawk Kites, in Nags Head, NC. At least it will be put back into service, and maybe it will help to bring some more "Newbies", over to the "Dark Side"..........
